You are in the Chrysler Sebring
What is this discussion about?
Chrysler Sebring, Engine, Sedan

The 2.4 engines are very weak in the power department but that won't cause mechanical failure. I am unsure if the 2.4s have oiling problems as other Dodge/Chrysler engines have but your situation could be caused by one of these timing belt failure,dropped valve or connecting rod/crankshaft failure from oil pump failure. In any case I would recomend a remanufactured engine from an independant engine rebuilder.

i am having the same kind of problems but it is the front main seal that has blown on mine. Same year & engine as yours & no this should not happen. My car has only 42,000 miles on it. I had to have the front of my car painted in 2006 with the car not being 1 year old yet because of rust under the paint. Chrysler should be ashamed of making such poor quality vehicles. The 2.4L 4 cylinder motor has to be one of the poorest made motors with them going out at such low mileage. The 36,000 mile warranties are great for the chrysler dealers when the cars that are breaking down are right above 40,000 miles. I am calling Chrysler Corporate office tomorrow to let them know & advertise what a raw deal everyone is getting on these Friday or Monday made cars. Friday - employees rushing to go home & just might not care about quality of what they are doing thus ends up to be cars like you & I have. Monday - 1st day back on the job after the weekend & careless habits from weekend laziness hasn't worn off yet. I am very mad about the whole situation as well & feel as though I have been taken full advantage of.

I'm with you. I owned a 2001 Chrysler Sebring Convertible V-6 engine. Engine siezed at 91,000 miles in 2005. Chrysler told me it was my problem. Never got a diagnosis because they said it would cost more to take it apart than replace it. Currenly own a Toyota Solara.
#17 of 66 SEBRING RECALLS
Jan 26, 2009 (10:14 am)
I found this site while researching the MANY problems with my 2007, On Edmonds, as well as several other sites, there are no less than SEVEN recalls listed and all for the same problems I have been experiencing, Chrysler denies ANY, I want to know how these sites can 'site' these problems and recalls and then have the manuf, deny they exist. No one can answer that question - nor have I found any help in getting the electrical and engine problems addressed. ANY HELP WOULD BE WELCOMED!

Have you tried printing out the recall notices and bringing them to the dealer?

Yes, I have a folder full of them. The diagnostic(s) show nothing. But car continues to shut off, Also, had problem with radiator and diagnostic showed nothing - until there was a crack in the radiator and whole thing had to be replaced! Just looking for others who have encountered these problems and want to know how can sites this like one list recalls, complete with numbers and Chrysler dispute it. I have contacted an attyl, local TV action news and state senator - all to no avail. Thanks

Haven't had that one. But it would be interesting to see what Chrysler has to say. So far my 2007 still has engine light on and they say nothing shows up on diagnostic still! No shut offs while driving for about 3 wks.
