    I have a 2008 Chrysler Sebring 3.5L Limited edition, my car has had several problems, one issue I'm having now is overheating. This car overheats every couple of months I had a new water pump,several thermostats, radiator cap, it only masks the problem then it's back overheating. Also I have no heat in my car and nobody can seem to know why. Now they are saying my thermostat housing is cracked, whatever that is? What else can make my car have no heat and keep overheating? I have also had a heatercore flush and coolant flush and I still pulled out the lot with no heat. I spent enough money this car was a lemon from the gate!

SOURCE: replaced cracked radiator in 2000 Chrysler LHS but car still overheating. What could be the problem?

I had the same problem. My Chrysler LHS kept overheating. I had the thermostat changed out first and it didn't help. Then I had the water pump changed out and still did no good. Then changed out the radiator, still overheated. Come to find out the people that changed my thermostat put it in backwards. Evidently, the thermostats for these cars look different from all the others and people are not sure how to put them in. I took mine to a Chrysler dealer and they fixed it for me.

SOURCE: 1997 Chrysler LHS is overheating

If when you replaced coolant you noticed taht it fills slowly, the radiator could be internally blocked. Usually it can be flushed or if really bad, replace it. Also have the radiator checked for hydrocarbons...any in there tells you that there is a head gasket problem.

SOURCE: overheating

Did you burp the cooling system after you changed the thermostat and topped off the coolant? If not, click my screenname, go to Tips and Tricks, and follow the procedure there that I've written up. If this wasn't done, it'd be a very easy reason why you still overheat.

SOURCE: car over heating

Make sure the pump's belt is correctly installed. If it is double check thermo stat make sure its the correct one and properly installed. If thses items are A-ok then you have nothing to loose by having a repair shopdo a transfusion with a mfluid exchanger. You may have a blockage .If it is air lock other than getting a pressure tester that the dealers use to remove air lock the cheap way outis to run the car for an hour without the cap on It can't over heat cause there is no pressure and you'll see the steam vent out.

Does my 2008 Chrysler sebring have two thermostats

there is only one thermostat on your car. what you probably have is split temp control one to set temp for the passenger side and one for the drivers side. if so then the temp control door on the passenger side is probably not functioning properly. take it to a shop to have fixed.

I need to know where the thermostat is at and how to change it in a 2005 chrysler sebring 2.7 liter. Thanks

If you follow the top hose out of the radiator back to the engine, you will find the thermostat housing, kinda ball shaped, there are 2 bolts holding it on, get ready for a spill, don't do this hot. Remove the housing, you might be able to leave the hose attached, if not just get it out of the way, pull out the thermostat, put in a new one, no adhesive on the gasket, tighten her up, all set. Hope this helps.

How to change thermostat 04 sebring 2.7

The thermostat is located on the left side (standing from the back of the engine) under the Alternator. First step is to remove the neg bat cable. Try to use a mem-saver as it will save you alot of headache trying to reteach the PCM Remove the Alternator, be careful not to break the electrical connectors. You should be able to see the thermostat housing (looks like half a ball with 2 hoses coming out of it) Drain the coolant, and remove the housing..there are 3 bolts. Note the position of the old thermostat before removal. Install the new thermostat in exactly the same position, with the spring-end facing the engine. Clean any debris and residue from the inside of the housing cover. Put the new gasket on the thermostat and install. After everything is back as it was, re-fill the radiator start the engine and turn your heater on full. Watch for leaks.
