Sebring LX 2.7L V6

  • 110,000 miles

Hard to find similar description but here is my situation. It's a 2001 Chrysler Sebring 4DR LX with 2.7 engine. Got up this morning started all good. Ran errands and drove to friends workplace 20+ miles. Went in and spent an hour talking. Came out car started fine and drove home stopping at a store a mile from home and went in and shopped fot 15 mins. Came back out and started but heard clicking noise under hood (like ticking sound). at idle. Went away with pushing accelerator a little. Started home and all was fine until I slowed and pulled into driveway Engine quit and was able to get to parking space with all the power you have steering. Tried to restart and cranking produced close to starting but no prize. Now just cranks but won't even try to catch. Doesn't seem to be getting fuel. start/fuel fuse seems fine. Swapped 2 relays one being in fuel pump slot (they were same P#). Still nothing. Checked fluids. Coolant was down a bit and oil seemed a bit over mark. But looked good no trace of any thing but oil. In the past usually started just turning key but on occasion would crank for 20 seconds with accelerator pump like no fuel until I pumped once. Obvious candidates are fuel pump or fuel filter or electronics (relay/fuse). Ran 4 bottles of injector cleaner in past 2 months so at a loss. Taking it in Monday (Today Fri.) to mechanic. Mechanics preliminary finding was computer not retaining memory (His words "Will not energize") Another mechanic coming to possibly give opinion. Car did on occasion die at intersection waiting for light but always restarted quickly. Everyone says POS car but has run well for 16 years and 110000 mi with good maintenance (Oil Change and fluids). Probably not fuel problem.

Sebring LX 2.7L

  • Automatic transmission
  • 150,000 miles

I purchased this car used back in November of 2011. Made sure the first thing i did after purchase was to get a tune-up and an oil change. About 3 months later my car begain to stall on me when i would begin to pull off from a stop light... This began to happen quite frequently and began to get very dangerous. I was on the expressway one day when this happened in the middle of rush hour traffic when my car just cut off on me out of the blue. I had to st there in the middle of oncoming traffic trying to start my car to get out of the way of speeding vehicles. Upon looking the problem up online, i found that there were a lot of people with the same car with the exact same issue. Apparently, the engine in the Chrysler Sebring Convertible is deffective. Due to leakage, engine sludge accumelates and ultimately causes the demise of the engine if not caught in time. I called Chrysler to find out if there had been a recall on this engine due to the fact that there were sooooo many complaints that I had come accross. Chrysler informed me that the only recall that had been issued on my car according to the VIN is the lable for the convertable top. They stated that a recall had not been issued for the engine at all. I found this to be very unsettling because of the danger this issue causes. Something needs to be done about this. If anyone knows of someone i should contact in regards to a class action lawsuit please send me an email: jen.caron1@gmail.com. Thank you!!!

Sebring LXI 2.7L

  • Automatic transmission
  • 110,000 miles

SEBRING STALLS, ENGINE LIGHT COMES ON WHEN CROSSING FREEWAY. OVERPASS IN THE SLOW LANE. IT HAPPENS EVERYTIME ON THE SAME ONE! SO I DRIVE IN THE FAST LANE AND IT WON'T HAPPEN. IT ALSO HAPPENS, SAME THING, ON OTHER OVERPASSES IN COUNTY AND ON OTHER STATE FREEWAYS, THE SLOW LANE . WE THINK THERE MUST BE SOMETHING IN THE GROUND CONTROLLING SOMETHING (STREETLIGHTS AHEAD,

SPRINKLER SYSTEMS ETC.) THAT STOPS THE COMPUTER SYSTEM OF THE CAR AND THE CAR STALLS AND THEN AFTER A COUPLE OF SECONDS COMES BACK ON.

IT'S SCARY WITH KIDS AND GRANDCHILDREN IN THE CAR! MECHANICS LOOK AT US LIKE WE'RE CRAZY AND THEY WON'T RIDE WITH US TO SEE OUR PROBLEM. FRUSTRATED
