    same thing but sometimes it starts right off; sometimes it doesn't. It's not the battery. Sometimes after you are running down the road a bit it will cut out and won't start again unless you pump the gas and keep cranking or just wait a long time. Could this be a fuel filter or fuel pump problem; it is intermittent but getting more frequent.

    I will check the cam belt; haven't done so yet. Have 105,000 miles and it runs great even though it is a 2.7 engine, there is no engine sludge and no noticeable engine knock or other noisenoise; may even be a replacement engine for all I know. I only recently bought it. It doesn't exhibit any of the posted problems of the "dreaded 2.7 engine" of that year.

Sounds like you damaged the engine by running it without oil. Sorry but you probably need a new engine.

I have a 99 sebring lxi the atlenator belt broke so we replaced it. without the belt the car started and was fine then when we replaced it and went to crank it, it wont start


If you have been running the engine without the alternator hooked up then all the power is being provided by the battery. You may have run the battery very low and too low to crank the starter over.

As a first step see if you can jump start the car off a battery in another vehicle with the engine running in that vehicle. If the sebring starts then the fault is with the battery and it will need to be disconnected and fully charged (provided the battery is still sound) or replaced. Before you do that, remove the serpentine belt that you just replaced and check that all the pulleys connected on that belt that are being driven by the crankshaft pulley (like the alternator pulley, tensioner pulley etc etc) can all be rotated freely and have not seized up. Often belts will break because one of the pulleys it is driving has seized up.

Check the throttle plates and idle speed control motor make sure there both clean.

Also check manifold vacuum at idle the best you can hold an idle. I have run into timing belt being one tooth off and engine still ran fine. But the vacuum was low that's how I could tell the belt was a tooth off.

replace the distributor, not just the cap and arm but the whole thing. it is easy to replace by removing the battery and battery pan and air filter hose. I had the same problem in may of 08. replaced it and now it runs great.
