#2 of 18 Cause for CONCERN!!!
Jan 25, 2008 (8:24 am)
THIS IS BEGINNING TO BE A HEADACHE. Formally a owner of 2001 Dodge Neon. Understand that same maker, probably same problems...Bought a 2007 Chrysler Sebring with 2.7Ltr V6 Engine. Not knowing about the Flex fuel drivability...from the start puting Low grade 87..light vibrations. Drove for the 1st week without any problems. Thought because a V6 should start using 89 or 93 grade fuel...Boy I was wrong!!!! While waiting for a light to change car shuts off. Starts up fine pulled off....then hard jerks and light vibrations.....Car has shut off 3 times, Chrysler has replaced exposed harness and wiring, Updated main computer of Recalls.. Still having the same issues, I think the Gas line might have water trapped!!!....Anybody having these problems? HELP!!!!!

First, as far as what grade of fuel to use, I recommend always going with what the owner's manual says. I believe the 2.4L and the flex-fuel 2.7L both say to use 87 octane. I have an 07 Sebring with the 3.5L and it suggests using 89 midgrade.
If you think you have water in the tank or lines you can get a can of gas additive at most auto parts stores which should remove it. Read the directions and don't be tempted to pour in more than what it says for the amount of gas in the tank. More isn't necessarily better.
Also, if you think the computer might be out of whack by putting in higher octane gas, you can reset it and let it relearn. Disconnect the negative battery cable for at least an hour or more (overnight is okay). After you hook it back up, start the car and let it idle for several minutes until the idle rpm settles down. Then try to drive at moderate, varying speeds for a while to complete the relearning.
#4 of 18 Oil leak in 2003 Chrysler Sebring Coupe
Mar 10, 2008 (5:21 am)
I have a 2003 Sebring Coupe, 3.0 engine, less than 39,870 miles. A week or so ago I had an oil change done by the dealer. This week I noticed an oil leak under the right front part of the hood. Before I take it to the dealer and have them look at it, any idea what this leak is from?
#5 of 18 2005 Sebring Oil Leak
Jun 26, 2009 (12:30 pm)
We have a 2005 Sebring with an oil leak only when the car is running. The leak appears to be coming from the above the oil filter. We changed the oil filter in the hopes that is was just a puncture in the filter....but no luck. I think it may be coming from the seal where the lowest pulley that the serpentine belt is on, on the front of the engine. We are going through a couple quart of oil every couple days. Anyone have any idea how much something like that might cost or if there may be another place to look for the leak? I appreciate anything anyone might have to offer!! Thanks!!

Try an after market parts supplier (e.g. Canadian Tire) or an auto salvage yard for a used part. Good luck.
#7 of 18 Change Oil indicator
Aug 04, 2009 (3:57 pm)
I've got an 08 Sebring sedan with the 2.7L engine, currently with 17400 miles. I bought it 2 months ago at Carmax and it had 15800 miles at the time, allegedly the oil & filter was just changed. Checking the oil it looked perfect, light brown.
The Change Oil indicator just came on and I'm wondering if when they allegedly changed the oil, that they followed the reset procedure. Is this indicator based on time and mileage?
To be 100% safe, I may just change the oil & filter myself as well as reset the indicator.
#8 of 18 Sebring exaust is smoking.
Aug 22, 2009 (8:12 am)
When starting my 1998 Sebring Convertible, I notice that it smokes once in a while. But not all of the time. The smoke is white and light. What would cause that, and how do I fix it?
#9 of 18 Fan running when I start the car.
Aug 22, 2009 (8:22 am)
I have a 1998 sebring convertible. I noticed that when I start my car, it doesn't take long for the fan to come on. About 1 minute or less. Is this normal, or should I be concerned. The engine doesn't run hot. but the fan does come on almost immediatly. How can I fix this?
