You can still drive it with the engine light on. It may not run too well or you may not notice any difference at all. If the light flashes on and off while driving then you shouldn't drive it because damage to the catalytic converter may be a result. I hope this helps.

One of the belts in my 2000 chrysler sebring jxi convertible hisses as soon as I start the engine and Im wondering which one it is. It is the closest to the oil well.


Not sure which belt it is without looking at engine. Because of year and being you don't know service records I would replace all belts. The timing belt is in side the engine that usually just breaks without warning. The hissing could also be the air conditioner compressor which I think is controlled by that belt

How do you reset the service engine soon light on a 97 sebring jxi convertable


You will need to retrieve the trouble code(s) stored in the computer and repair the problem associated with that code.You cab buy a tool for less than 70 dollars that will read and erase the code at a chain parts store.This is not a maintenance light or an oil change indicator.This light is part of the onboard diagnostics.Good luck!

1997 Chrysler sebring jxi 6cyc, it idles fine, but when you press the gas it falls on it's face. It doesn't stall, just no go power. I did a tune up, changed the throttle position sensor, even loosened the...


Try cleaning out the throttle body really good. Let air dry before starting it afterwards. Open the throttle as you spray it all over. 

Sounds like maybe vacuum or air/gas mix totally off.
