Question about 1995 Chrysler Sebring

Open Question

95 Sebring So many Problems!

I've had this '95 Sebring LXi for four years now, and I've had problems with it every year. I usually get it fixed, but for some reason, I can't figure out what the problem is with my car this time.

The car doesn't start when it's cold outside if it's been sitting for any great length of time. I replaced the battery in May of this year. It ran fine for about 5 months, and since it's been cold, it won't start. Every time I jump the car, it starts up just fine. I've found that when I press the door lock buttons, they don't work, and there's a clicking noise in the dash. I don't know if the two problems are connected or if they are seperate. After I jump the car, I drive it for nearly an hour before I shut it off, so there should be plenty of charge in the battery when I leave it. I know that by physics, batteries lose a significant amount of their charge due to cold weather, but this is excessive. There aren't any lights on in the car that I'm aware of after I shut the car off. Oh, and when I use the other buttons in the car, they all work. It's just the locks that don't work. They are manual, for practical purposes.

Also, I have a "check engine" light appear if I drive the car between 55 and 60 miles per hour for more than a minute or so. I've had one of the O2 sensors replaced, and I've considered having the other replaced, but I don't know if it will help the problem. After I shut the car off, the light goes off, and then only comes back on if I get to that speed again. It's not affecting the driving of the car, but I think it's causing the car to run rich.

Can anyone help? If you need more info, please let me know.

    After the car has run for a long time there's a subtle smell.. perhaps a bad egg smell, but it almost smells metalic.

    Also, another detail I forgot. A spark plug blew up in one of the cylinders. I had the spark plug, the head, and a few oil leaks fixed in the engine. I had all of this done in September of this year, and I think the leaks are gone.

    Now the car won't start, even when I jump it. It makes a whining noise and doesn't crank like a normal car does. I think this might be the timing belt.

SOURCE: Cirrus Stalling With Check Engine Light On did not come on the first time it happened

Your problem sounds like it may be a Mass Air Flow sensor, when it does run bad disconnect the sensor, if the engine starts running ok the sensor is bad, this would be the most common reason for your problem and why it is only intermittent. As far as the overheat do you have a coolant leak?

SOURCE: Battery not holding charge.Booster charged

Anything is possible, The correct (and easy) way to find out is to FULLY charge your battery. Check charging voltage at ~ 2000 rpm, you should have 13,8 to 14.8 volts at the battery, if not, investigate why not. (you would not get a high enough voltage reading with a discharded battery).

Try disconnecting the negative cable (car off first!!!!!! or kill diodes)at night and see if you can retain a charge. measure voltage on the battery at night and again in the morning, before hooking back up... any lower voltage is a bad mark against the battery. If battery retains a charge, test for voltage draws:hook a volt meter in series with the negative terinal, and the battery cable. more than .2 volts may be too much draw. Pull fuses and see if the issue stops. Most sommon issue is diodes in the alternator. One or more fail and cause battery drain.

Batterys that go totally dead, or have water level go lower than the plates often do not recover.

No reverse 41 Tent transaxle

If you can, have your Sebring checked for a specific trouble code that will pinpoint the source of the problem and suggest probable causes. By doing this you will avoid replacing parts unnecessarily.

May be odd but anti theft can shut down the injectors, check injector fuses and relay.. You could have a problem such as key magnet is bad. If you have a spare key try it, or if you have tried many times may have to look at reprogram. I really am not sure but the anti-theft has given me problem twice in the last 10 year but it was GM cars. Most important of all if you have check engine light are any trouble code you need to check it. It is the best way to narrow the search down.

Make sure your car is not in a year change. If so you could require parts from a early model or later model.

97 Sebring stall

Were you able to hear the fuel pump before you had the problem? Some of these cars won't let the fuel pump run until the computer picks up distributor signal first. Chryslers are known for cam and crank sensors going bad. Not a back-yard repair, though. Diagnosing it is half of the problem, repairing it is the other. Hopefully the posts come up with more obvious stuff.
