Question about 1996 Chrysler Sebring

1 Answer

Cranks but won't start, and a belt squeals.

My car has been idling rough for a couple weeks now. I went to start my car and it would turn over but never stay running. I tried giving it gas while it was turning over and a belt started squealing really loudly. It has been getting poor gas mileage recently also. Any ideas.

Put a new fuel filter on and see if that helps, if it don't, better get a fuel pressure test.

You have to go into a lot of technical detail & history
on your vehicle, for us to even guess.

What engine?????? Take the belt off, the tensioner should have full travel and smooth, If its drags, its bad. Ck the pulleys, they shoul dspin easy without any noise, feel them as you turn them with your hand, if they feel rough, replace them. If the PS pulley isnt aligned, it will squeal.

It sounds like the alternator belt or the alternator is going bad. The squealing sound was probably the alternator belt. the alternator belt might need to get tightened or replaced or you may need a new alternator. The alternator keeps the battery charged. When the alternator goes bad the battery can not be recharged. You also should keep the power steering fluid up to par or the power steering will go bad on you.

Major electrical problems, and then some...


If its still squealing after you have replace the belt, it is likely that one of the idler or tensioner pulley bearings have went out. You can pull the belt off and then try and wiggle the idler and tensioner pulleys and if any of them have wobble in them then that is the one that needs to be replaced.
