Question about 1999 Chrysler Sebring

1 Answer

Sebring Overheating My sebring has been overheating, but only when i slow down (like in a parking lot, or a driveway) after driving for a while, or while parking my car. I tried replacing the thermostat, and it is still doing the same thing. It is over flowing the coolant resovoir and the coolant mixture in there is boiling sometimes.

    It was smoking from the tailpipe, so i took it to a shop and told them i thought it had a blown head gasket, so they pressure tested it and they did a block test, and said it was fine, but the freeze plugs needed replaced, so they did that and said it should be fine now, and it doesnt smoke anymore. But the heater core could be a problem, i didnt think about that, because my heater isnt working.

Check your oil and see if it is milky. if it is then its the head gasket that is blown. is it smoking out of the tail pipe? or could be a faulty heater core

    also is it wet on the inside of the car on the passenger side? that would be for sure a heater core. but sometimes they dont leak when they go bad

2002 Sebring - Engine just overheated!! Engine Sludge?


You need to have a coolant flush done to your engine. Overheating the coolant will brake down the properties of the antifreeze. Have a garage flush your cooling system thorougly and replace the old coolant with the proper OEM coolant. You will also need to replace your thermostat as overheating this unit will have damaged the thermostat. Replace the rad cap while your at it because there is a spring that regulates your cooling system pressure and it will now be weakened.
Just a note, Overheating your engine will cause damage to your engine. If the temperature gauge is near the red zone, stop the engine before any major damage can occure.

1998 Chrsler Sebring coolant gurlges - now overheating


yes some systems have to be burped or the boil over can occur in the motor and cause head gasket issues..at 195k i think you should check the system for leaks and thermostat if it is opening at right tempatures or is slow..plus the vented cap on your radiator check with vacuum gauge if it holds about 12-14 psi before it vents...
