Question about 2002 Chrysler Sebring

1 Answer

While driving around the engine stopped running.

So i was driving out of my neighborhood and the engine just turned off while i was at the stoplight. All the electrical things still work. Like i can play music and mess with my lights, but it just won't start. When I start it the engine tries to turn but then doesn't. We don't think it's the starter because it doesn't make that repeated clicking noise when i try to start it. It just clicks once then nothing... Any ideas?

    To be honest I don't know **** about motors, so I'm not quite sure how to do that. And the car is like a mile away and it's dark so I can't light anything up. :/

    My wife was driving to work the other day and had the same problem. The engine died, but the radio and power windows still worked. Started back up went another mile same thing. Got the car towed home had no power to any thing. Put the jumper cables on wouldnt start but turned over. Put the charger on it for about 5 hours bareley wants to turn over. Still not to sure what is wrong but when we get it started we will be trading it in, Not for another chrysler thats for sure

Code says system running too lean Bank1 and at stoplights I have to put car in neutral or it will stall

Lean Bank1 can be attributed to a faulty oxygen sensor or by unmetered air entering the system. A comon problem with the protege is cracks in the plastic air intake hose after the MAF which sucks air in that is not registed by the car and thus make it run lean and idle poorly
Another comon problem causing rough idle is the EGR valve being stuck because of carbon deposits, this will usually throw an EGR related check engine light but not always.

Having trouble with the heater in my 2006 Dodge Grand Caravan. When the car is driving around the neighborhood or stopped at an intersection, only cold air blows. Only with extended constant acceleration,...

Yes . Your heater is actually not an Electrical Heater or a Separate Heating system . Actually if uses the same Radiator Line . When Radiator is heated up it is cooled down with radiator Fan and coolant . But when you use the heater function , this hot fluid is passed through a heating coil tube and blower fan is used to take that heat inside the car .
So I think now you understand , why you are not heated up in a short run . You really need to make the Engine + Radiator Warmer ( that is natuarlly happened when you run more) to get Warm air inside.

When the truck idles the engine stops running

Does it feel as if the vehicle is not "down shifting" into low gear when you approach the stoplight? If so, then the torque converter "lock up" for OVERDRIVE may not disengaging so the vehicle is stuck in high gear and it will kill the motor. If you switch to park and it starts right back up that might be the problem. A temporary fix is to disconnect a wire from the lock-up torque converter switch, but overdrive won't work and you wouldn't want to do a lot of highway driving until you replace the lock-up switch.

I was driving down road staop at a stoplight and

I have a 1997 Skylark that did the same thing. It turned out to be the coil pack. It's very simple to replace yourself but just be careful when you disassemble. There are some small springs that may jump out when you remove the screws holding the coil pack. Also, I'd suggest that you replace the boots and porcelin insulators while you're doing this. Just to make sure that this is truely the problem, you could buy the whole assembly at a salvage yard for around $25 bucks and if it solves the problem, then either run the used one until if fails and then replace it with new parts.
