It ended up being the lower crank seal. We have a guy here locally that does mechanic work on the side...he replaced it for us and it cost like $900. If we had taken it to a shop or dealership they would have charged us about $2300...or more. We had it fixed about a month ago....only problem....it is leaking AGAIN!!!!! We are going to try and trade it in the the same dealership we bought it from and screw then like they screwed us. Our mechanic thinks it is a problem with the shaft itself...that is why the seal replacement only held for like a month or so. I hope this helps you!!! Sorry it is not good news!!

Same problem on my 01 Limited conv, The oil leak was the oil pressure sensor.
It is located little to the left above the oil filter.
I repaired mine yesterday.. The sensor is $10.99 at autozone.. You have to raise the car, remove the heat shield that covers the oil sensor (3 Bolts 15mm) remove the plate. Disconnect the plug and unscrew the sensor from the block. The leak is on the plastic part of the sensor that goes into the threaded part of the sensor. Mine would drip onto the exhaust pipe and smoke. Mine was so bad that I would loose 1/2 qt oil in about 50 miles.
Also if is nicer to goto autozone and get the OIL SENSOR SOCKET 9.99 cause it makes it easier to remove and replace the new sensor.
Hope this help, and be careful while working under your vehcile.

Try the backside of the engine, up against the firewall and on the drivers side. I think for some reason it might be there. Let me know! THanks!

This is the first time I've ever heard gas sloshing around in a car's gas tank. Is this normal?
#16 of 18 Yellow engine light won't' go away
Dec 28, 2011 (11:57 am)
I've a 2001 Sebring Sedan with 115,000 miles. The yellow engine line suddenly came on and won't go away. Took it to the Chrysler dealer. They did a diagnostic, did a few things and charged me $650. It was $600 labor and a $50 part for an unrelated oil pressure switch replacement(it was leaking oil near the catalytic converter). I got down the road about two miles and the damn thing came back on. What now?
I saw on the gas tank cap that if it's not tight it could cause the yellow engine light to come on. I can hear gas sloshing around in my tank when I'm turning corners. Could there be a gas tank pressure problem?

I own a Chrysler Sebring 2001 2.7 and everytime I warm it up especially in the mornings the passenger compartment fills with the stench of gasoline fumes. I realize that the heater draws the airflow from where the engine sits. But,me and my mechanic freinds can't detect any leaks,but I do smell gasoline near the lines. Anyone have that problem? I sure would appreciate your answers. Thanks
#18 of 18 98 Sebring oil leak

I have a pretty bad oil leak that runs down onto my oil filter. You can see where it's coming out but the problem is figuring out what the part is called. I "think" it's something like the oil sending unit? It looks like a little valve.
Upon reading other posts I think it may be the oil pressure sensor. Can someone confirm if the oil pressure sensor is visible from under the car and just above the oil filter?
Thank you in advance.
