Did u test for intake manifold leaks? did you disconnect the battery after the cleaning to reset idle speed control system? if u can find no leaks and system was reset then IAC may be sticking.

    Check the air filter for cracks,wear,or bad seal. If the filter is broken the air flow will be high and the MAF sensor will tell the controller to up the idle speed. A critter got into mine and nibbled a hole. new filter and all was well again.

08 sebring touring after changing throttle body why would my car still idle low and sputter when stopped at red light?

Hi there
On the throttle body is an idling screw and I have seen them block up. Make sure that it is open and that the air can pass through the little opening. Check all air intakes and make sure that you have no leaks. Check all the air pipes for leaks. Good luck.

2004 chrysler sebring idle speed is too slow. HOw

why do you want your rpms higher while idling? you don't want them high because your gas bill will reflect that. slow shouldn't matter but if it's dying while on idle it could either be your mass air flow sensor or your fuel filter being clogged

My 2004 Sebring 2.7 V6, stall at stopping, it just restart without any problem

The usal problem that you describe could be as simple as a drirty throtle body or IAC (Idle Air Control )bore is dirty. Any way try this, remove the Air tube that goes to the throttle body.You can now see the butter fly plat that moves as you step on the accelerator. Spray some throttle body cleaner on the plate both sides,and scrub with a tooth brush. now take a rag with cleaner on it and remove what you have loosened replace removed compnents and test drive

I have a 2000 Chrysler Sebring that wont idle. The car starts and will run only if I step on the gas pedal.

clean the IAC. Use spray carb cleaner and spray the idle air control valve. It is on the throttle body near the throttle plate. It may have become stuck with deposits.

Clean the throttle body as well. Check for vacuum leaks

Chyrsler sebring lxi 1995 2.5 v6 24 valve

ok this sounds easy when you ran the vehicle the computer controled the idiling motor now that you replace the idiling motor the computer hasnt been reset to except the new parameters
once you reset computer this should bring the idle back down to its specified idle
you can also adjust back of gas pedel the idle cable and on the throttle body by the idling screw
