SOLUTION TO ENGINE FAILURE> The waterpump design in the chrysler sebring engines are known to failure which then leaks coolant into the oil compartment of the engine which forms engine sludge and then gets into the oil pump pickup tube and lowers oil pressure and loosens timing chain tensioner which will result in engine jumping time and destroying engine.....either timing chain breaks, jumps and bends valves or damages bearings and engine knocks. to prevent this issue. THE FOLLOWING PARTS MUST BE REPLACED EVERY 60,000 MILES or 100,000 Kilometers Waterpump, timing chain, timing chain guides, Primary timing chain tensioner, oil pump is sludge is excessive and afterwards have oil changed every 100 miles 3 times and you will never have a problem with the engine....The cost a a mechanic to have this work done is $1200-$2000 depending who does the work..
I, myself can replace these parts for $400 just for the parts.
still $2000 is cheaper than a new engine...
so if your car has 60,000kms or more i would have this work done or be prepared to replace your motor, because it happens to all 2.7 at one point or another.
