1998 Chrysler Sebring JXI V6 2.5L Transmission Problem

So my car will randomly ,while in mid-drive, shift into neutral. When i first put my car into drive it takes a second for it to get into gear and it kinda jerks into gear and starts going. I have only driven it a few times like this but i think it is either when my car is about to shift into 3rd or 4th gear is when it just shifts down into neutral. All this the car is still moving, it drops into neutral until i get down to about 20mph and it goes back into gear. I just dont understand what the problem is and im really tight for money so i really need to what is wrong so i can tell how much money i am going to need to spend.

    What do you think the problem could be? And is that expensive?

    then u have an internal problem in the transmission, it will require a shop to tear it down for inspection.

Most likely a valve body or a shift solenoid issue, but at the very least the trans pan and valve must come out and or be replaced, those 2 parts are fairly expensive, but don't know how much and don't wish to mislead you, have the shop look at it, u can always decline the repair.

My 01 chrysler sebring wont shift into any gears


Check that the shift linkage is connected at the trans, if it is, put some transmission fluid in it after checking the dipstick while running in neutral with brake on.

Verify you have spark, those are known to have issues with the camshaft sensor in the distributor. I have put 2 distributors in my daughter's 97 sebring jxi, did the same thing.

Ecm ecu computer is out on 99' chrysler sebring lxi


I have the same problem with my 99 sebring lxi, I'm getting a new ecu for the transmission and the engine, hopefully that fixes it. Did the car randomly die and wouldn't start again or when driving keep the transmission in one gear and wouldn't change?

Where is the battery located in the 1998 Chrysler Sebring Convert. JXI


Turn the front wheels to the left and you should see an access panel leading to the battery. You may have to remove the left front wheel to gain more room.
