Open Question

Bucking problem on a 2005 sebring 2.7

2.7 engine. seems ...maybe toi have a mis-fire problem? At idle it generally runs smooth, but sometimes it will studder. at speed under a very light load 45-55 MPH it feels like the lockup converter is kicking in and out( bucking). Place foot lightly on break to force TQ to disingage and the problem seems to go away....might be just a mask of the real problem. Mileage has droped about 2 MPG. 53K and real good maintance on car. oil change every 3k.

    SAME PROBLEM BUT 02 SEBRING 2.4

  • Anonymous Apr 04, 2009

    I have a similar problem with my 2005 Sebring. Mine bucks at the same speed but has also stopped completely three times. Each time it started back up after cranking on it a while. Fuel pressure does not drop during these incidents, as I have placed a guage on it and taped to the windsheild so I could watch the pressure.

SOURCE: 2002 Chrysler Sebring LTD Convertible, Mileage 58,300. Oil leak

This car came with a 70,000 mile drive train warranty. Take it back to the dealer, or contact Chrysler and your local ABC, CBS, or NBC affiliate, and let them know that the dealer is trying to screw you on their service and on Chrysler's coverage.

Ge it on the national news and I will bet your dealer will have this car fixed within a couple of days.

Embarrass the stuffing out of them!

If this vehicle is a 2009/8 model then whatever is wrong with it will be under warranty.

I think your sensor may be affective. The same thing happens to my sebring and it has been like that forever. You can check the oil pressure sensor and see if it needs replaced.

Idles smooth, sputters coming from muffler like its running on one cylinder


Hi T:
Interesting as smooth idle and sputter are contra-indications.
- Smooth idle should be healthy
- Sputter could indicate problem:
- mis-fire? Possible bad spark plug or bad exhaust valve. Pull spark plugs to check to see if any are fouled. Compression check will help depermine why fouling is happening.
How many cylinders?
How many Km on engine?
With engine hot, Remove oil filler cap and see if any vapour indicating blow by (bad rings)
My suggestion?
Do some more checking and reply as a comment on this post. Will assist if I can.
Cheers.

If a whole side has failed, as much as I hate to say it, the ECM/PCM has failed. More specifically the "drivers" for the injectors and should also fire spark. Let me know if you need anything else.

Mis fires


The engine in your car is designed to run smoothly with maximum power output and produce as minimal emissions as possible. When your car's engine is not performing properly it can cause, low gas mileage, low power output, increased emissions and possible internal engine damage if left untreated. This troubleshooting guide is designed to isolate the malfunctioning cylinder and troubleshoot to repair the problem. Before we start we need to know one of two things; is the engine running poorly at idle only and seems to be ok under power? Or does the engine run fine and it's just the engine idle condition that is the problem. If your engine is idling rough please visit, engine misfires at idle If your engine cranks over but won't start visit engine wont start. If your engine won't crank over visit engine wont crank over. If your engine is running rough all of the time or intermittently you are in the right place. Below we have created a guide to aid diagnoses and repair procedure for most common rough engine running problems.

  • Step 1: Anytime you have a problem with electronically controlled components such as an engine, transmission, ABS brake, or SRS (supplemental restraint system, air bag) inspect all fuses in the under hood power distribution center and under dash fuse panels using a test light. If all fuses test ok continue to the next step.
  • Step 2: To check for problems with electronically controlled components such as an engine, transmission, ABS brake, or SRS (supplemental restraint system) and the fuses test ok a trouble code scan is needed to identify any system trouble. Use a simple scanner tool to retrieve trouble codes and check if they relate to the specific problem, like an ignition coil failure code. If a trouble code is present but does not pertain to the immediate problem like an EVAP code ignore it until a later time, after the engine is running properly. The reason we repair non-related codes after the engine is running properly is because sometime false codes can be triggered by a rough running engine. Once the engine is running properly the code present might cycle and turn itself off. You might say "if the engine isn't running right shouldn't it have a check engine light and a trouble code?" Sometimes conditions occur that will not be detected by the computer, example: if the intake or exhaust valve operation fails the computer cannot detect the failure because the problem is not sensor related, so the engine doesn't run smooth and the computer thinks everything is ok with no codes. If the trouble code retrieved relates to a cylinder misfire like an injector driver or ignition coil failure first repair these problems then re-test system. If no trouble codes are present proceed to the next step.

At idle the engine misses, off idle very smooth and runs normally computer code multi cylinder misfire. have changed plugs and wires did not help. could it be the coil packs of a fuel problem?


This sounds as if you have a vacuum leak, check all the lines and check the intake. There are a lot of things that will cause mis fire. mis fire code is triggered when the ecm reads a very slight difference in the time the crank sensor picks up a signal. Mis fires can be from electrical, vacuum, mechanical, and eletronic sources. If you can get it to a person/shop that read which cylinder are misfiring this helps alot, narrows the field. Let me know I can help. Also it helps to know what engine we are dealing with

Puttering when stopped


it could possibly be a sensor but i am almost positive it will tell you that your idle speed is too low. You must set your idle speed back to normal. Go to your throttle cable and there should be a screw (maybe two if you have cruise control) that you can move back and forth to control position of throttle spring. Once you have your RPM's set around 800 (or at smooth idle without sounding too high) then you have corrected your idle speed.
