Several Chrysler Sebring posts have gone unanswered mostly because of the nasty habbit of the 2.7liter Sebring engines to trap air and create vapor locks ontop of the engines. You can do everything right and still end up overheating again and again, until you are ready to shoot the dang thing. Do yourself a favor, after draining the cooling system of any of its contents, you MUST MUST MUST allow the trapped vapor to escape. Most of the Chrysler engines produced in the last decade or so all have a ":Shrader-type" valve ontop of the engine at its highest point. Reason: to allow the trapped air in the system to "belch" off or escape (you make up the name here!) after initially allowing the engine to get heated up so that the thermostat opens and its fans turn on for cooling air (about 220 or 225 degrees). Shut of the engine and dcarefully use you 10mm or 3/8" wrench with a glove on and a safety towel around it and open that valve slowly to allow it to "hiss" off the pressure air. At some point it will slow down or begin to emit coolant. Good point to close the valve. Then take some 50/50 and top off your overflow coolant reservoir. If you don't do this about 2 or 3 times, it will likely continue overheating.
Also, many good technicians have been totally baffled (including yours truly!) by the insertion of the thermostat backwards. Chrysler, you needed to make this fool proof, but alas, they did not. IT IS possible to insert the thermostat with its long side into the thermostat housing and then install on the side of the engine - double-check that you have the spring side towards the engine! The hot engine coolant cannot react with the opposite side of the thermostat if it's facing the radiator!! I paid good money for a technician (smart guy too) to do a water pump and thermostat replacement last September. I have been back to them several s and they could not put their finger on it, nor could the local Chrysler dealer service department. I knew that I had a flow problem when the top rad hose was reading 224 degrees on my IR thermo gun and the lower hose was reading 109 degrees with the engine at idle and hot!! There was no coolant flowing into the radiator, and it was overheating like mad. At last I had an "aha moment" and determined that I (and the other technician) had both inserted new thermostats in backwards. Today (July 14th ) I cured the problem by reinserting the thermostat correctly. Knowledge is wonderful!!!!

I can move it in to low log but i cant move it into hi


Try shifting the transmission into neutral then pressing 4hi. It should flash and then engage. Shift into drive again and re-try. Anytime shifted from 4hi to 4lo it needs to be shifted into neutral during transition. There is no need for 4lo position, unless you are really stuck off road, in the mud up to the windshield. Do not use 4lo unless you 4WD off road.

2002 s10 4x4 quad cab wont engage into 4hi or 4lo the clicking sounds that i have heard before when it did work is still there .the transfercase does change gear ratio in 4lo. today i tryed 4hi it did not...


Does your s10 have electronic shift or manual shift? Most i have seen are electronic shift try checking the shift motor on the transfer case, they have a tendency to corrode and split open the case. hope this will you

Haven't used 4Lo for about 8 years and can't remember thew sequence to put it in 4Lo - is it gear in neutral then shift or is it keep moving and then put in 4 Lo ?


shift from 2wh to 4hi to neutral then 4lo all while in drive and moving slowly. The owners manual and repair books say you can actually damage the transfercase if the jeep is parked. You can go into 4hi at any driving speed, just not too fast!

sounds like it's the motor is going bad or has a bad connection, try cleaning the connector if there isn't any gunk in the connector, check the manual see if there is a ohmn test you can run on the motor, if not i'd replace the motor.

Don't know how to put my 2002 sonoma p-up into 4 low


If you're going too fast, the 4low will not work, if you push 4high, it should do good for you. The 4lo is for creeping, and torque. The 4high works almost as good as AWD. Usually up to about 45-50mph. Hope that helps
