Question about 1997 Chrysler Sebring

Front end knocking from 97 sebring

I have a 97 sebring with 130k. The car runs great and I like it, but when I am accelerating above 65 mph, the car has a knocking in the front end that increases the faster I go (not coming from the engine). The knocking is happening every half second while accelerating higher than 65 mph. I have replaced ball joints, cv joints, pads, rotors, calipers, and inspected all suspension parts. Everything seems fine. The car drives straight, does not shake, and does not shudder or hesitate during the hesitation. I just makes this noise that seems to be coming from something like an output shaft from the engine or something like that. I am not a mechanic by any means but thats what it sounds like. Please help. I am becoming broke trying to find this problem. Thanks.

Move it to 3rd instead of drive and see if you still have the noise. May be transmission related since you have replaced everything else.

Loss of engine power/transmission 2001 chevy tahoe over 65 mph


Sound's as though a previous owner installed a speed governor so that the engine would not exceed the nationwide 55-65 mph speed limit average. This most likely was a company owned vehicle or owned by someone concerned about speeding ticket's or excessive speed by a teenage driver. It can be uninstalled by an experienced mechanic. Unless this poses a problem while driving on an interstate, you may wish to leave it as is.

At a steady 65 mph, the torque converter clutch (TCC) is engaged. When you accelerate, the ECU disengages the TCC to gain extra torque for acceleration and then re-engages TCC when speed is steady. Its kind of like having an extra gear.

I have a 2003 CR-V. Tonight I left the lights on and it drained the battery. The battery is only a couple months new, so with a quick jump, it started immediately and ran, seemingly with no problems.......


your battery may not be fully charged yet with the quick jump. let it run for a bit with no lights or accesories, no a\c or heat. everything is run off the computer and it need to be fully charged.

It sounds like you did not change those intake manifold gaskets and they are not completely sealing the intake and causing a vacuum leak and the MAP sensor will read high in voltage and cause the bad idle.

Shudders(shakes) at about 60mph


You may have worn out CV joints on the front wheel drive axles, they vibrate/shudder badly if they are really worn out.
