You could have the car towed to another shop for a second opinion.
A mechanic would check for compression and visually look at the belt to confirm. If the timing belt is broken, you may have damaged the valves too.

well to make sure it is the laternator start the car and pull the positive battery cable. if the car dies it is the alternator. and usually even on the new cars. it is easy to get to. just look at the front of the hood for the belt diagram and it will tell you how to release the belt.

SOURCE: timing belt is broken on a 2002 sebring

The engine in your car is not an interference engine if it is a DOHC (Double Overhead Camshafts), if it is a SOHC (single Overhead Cam) then it is a interference engine u have bent valves and the head will need to come off for repair My reference Gates timing belt catalog. U will need a shop manual to replace the belt also a really good set of hand tools, u will also need to replace the water pump which is driven off the timing belt.

SOURCE: timing belt or chain

Ummmm woahhh hold up here...every 2.7 litre V6 i've been associated with had timing CHAINS. The chains ran the water pump and dual over head camshafts.
The 2.7l engine was manufactured by Mitsubishi for Chrysler and had an internal water pump with defective seals that allowed coolant to leak & mix with the oil causing severe sludging problems and eventual engine FAILURE...This has been a nightmare for Chrysler AND OWNERS !
MANY owners have contacted ISG Impartial Services Group 1-(866)332-3746 for a settlement with Chrysler
Attached is a cutaway view of the 2.7 litre, and as you can clearly see it is chain driven.
I've been a MOPAR enthusiast all my life...sadly, this engine was one of the worst to ever hit the streets.
Good luck Doug...i hope this helps.

Go to; daycoproducts.com, click cars and trucks, then go to serpentine belt. Then on the right side of the screen click on finding your vehicle. Then get the illistration number and click on illistrations, go to that number it should something 6-? or 7-?. It's a pretty good websight.

I have a 2002 chrysler sebring everytime i turn headlights on the vehicle dies and wont restart i am clueless has new battery runs fine until u turn on headlights


Check the condition and tension of the alternator drive belt. Have a test done on the alternator as it appears that there is insufficient current to cover the large current draw for the lights.

How to remove and replace alternator on 2004 chrysler sebring sedan 3.0 v6


if question is car specific, best way is to signing in brand and model specific forums over internet.

let me give you generic answer for your question. first off all you need to release belt which drives alternator and/or other auxilary things attached on engine. this can be done by removing or loosening a sigle bolt ,or forcing the spring mechanism which holds the tension at desired level at all times. when you do that slide the belt out, and remove alternator wirings. when it is free, you can remove bolts holding your alternator. before starting the removal be sure that you removed negative cable from your battery and remember to save radio code if any.

My 97 Sebring died about a week ago and now it wont start. Found that the it was not firing. Changed the Distributor cap, rotor and distributor, along with the crank sensor. Placed new spark plugs in about...


Did you check the timing belt to see if it broke? It ha a 2.5 and it has belt. Remove timing cover at the front of the engine and have someone crank it while you watch the cam to see if it turns. If it doesn't turn, replace the belt.

Dont know how to tightin the belt on my 2002 chrysler srebring! got the new alt.... in, but cant tightin the belt back up,i took the belt off by taking off the alt.....bolts


Have you tried to start it yet?That may be all you need to do to get the tensioner to re-activate and get the proper tightness.Be quick though.Only a brief start,then check it to see if it is any better.
