First thing to remember autozone people ar not experts in the automative diagnostic world, if they were they would be earning 50 - 75,ooo per year as a technician, not 25,000 as a desk jockey. You need to go to a mechanic that has a computer to hookup to your car and tell you what the check engine light is on for. then you can fix the exact problem instead of poking around in the dark at the problem until you get lucky and have it fixed for a week or two,

Would have to say it has something to do with the ecu. It might be a sign that it will need replacing soon. It seems the computer is having a problem communicating with the sensor. Try to trace the wiring and make sure all connections are snug and clean.

I have a 1997 sebring lxi. It now will not turn over. I sprayed starter fluid in the intake and it turns over. I changed the fuel pump, fuel filter, and the relay. What else could it be?


Do you hear the fuel pump coming on normally comes on for approx 10 sec. when you turn key on, if no pump noise fault is still in fuel system, check the fuse and wiring, check for trouble codes, check injectors, etc

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.

How do I fix the lifters on my 2000 chrysler sebring lxi? Do I have to do anything special with them or just go buy them from autozone and replace them?


You need to change the cam as well and you will need to check each lifter to see if you need to change the rocker assembly. If the rocker Assembly is worn out that may be your only problem. The lifters if they leaked would rattle if they leaked down but after warming up would stop, however if they rattle all the time it could be just the rocker assembly worn out but would need to know which engine is in it as there are 4 listed for that unit.

1999 chrysler sebring lxi service engine light on


Your vehicle’s computer system has self-testing capability. When the computer senses that there is a problem with one of the components or sensors it stores the correspondent trouble code(s) in its memory and lights up the "Check Engine" or "Service Engine Soon" light to tell you that there is a problem and you need to diagnosed and repaired it. If the light starts flashing, this is evidence of a serious problem and the vehicle should be taken to a repair facility or you need to repair it immediately.

Trac Off Light always lit


Hello, let's see what we can do.
To answer your question, yes they are related. Either your ABS system is malfunctioning, you need to replace your brake pads or the vacuum booster is leaking.
Do you hear a hissing sound under the hood? If so it might be the vacuum booster. Does the engine run rough when you apply the brakes? That can indicate the same problem. Let me know what you find.
