Question about Chrysler Sebring

1 Answer

Service engine soon

On my 2000 sebring lxi. I replaced the front half of exhaust because of leaks around the flex pipe. Drove it about 50 miles then the ser eng soon light came on had it read and it was the multiple misfire code. So changed the plugs, wires, distributor, and rotor and the car is running good. But the light has come back on after about another 50 miles and I am getting the same code again. It is still running smooth and no noticeable misfires or hesitation when driving so what else should I do?

Hook it up to a code reader and cancel the previous code that came up.

SOURCE: Had replaced spark plugs, spark

Very often (and I am sorry to point out something so obvious after you did all that work) it is caused by using a gas grade other than what the manual calls for....

Most commonly, it is caused by using regular gas in an engine that calls for premium. High compression engines demand premium fuel and the antiknock sensors are very sensitive (they use quartz crystals that can detect the smallest change that you and I could never sense in a running engine) and I have seen this problem many times.... in my own car, my Daughters, and countless friends.... where the grade of gas made the difference even though everything seemed OK.

Your Grand Voyager probably calls for regular - same as my Wife's 1995. If you are using mid-grade or premium, you are wasting money for starters. Her Grand Voyager and my 2001 Jeep both call for regular gas and they DO NOT LIKE higher grade gas... the SES light will come on in about 20 miles on a tank of "good stuff"!

Once you get a full tank of the right grade gas (you may have to run it down a bit so you don't dilute it too much), reset the codes again and you will probably find that they do not come back!

Also- in the winter especially, the gas formulation is messed with to meet federal clean air laws. This varies allot from one brand to another so even if you are using the right grade gas, try a different brand.

Personally, I have a 2001 Jeep Cherokee and in the winter if I use Hess gas my SES light will come on within 20 miles of driving! The "no-name" gas I get at a local Quick Check puts the light back out after about 10 starts.

Finally, if it is not related to the brand or grade of gas..... make sure your fuel filler cap is tight. I know it sounds silly, but a loose cap WILL cause your SES light to come on! Something about back pressure on the return line...

Good luck! Please let me know if my advice didn't help and any other observations you find on your Voyager.

2000 navigator system too lean


Too Lean on which Bank of the Motor?

To have a lean O2 Code --you could have a rich fuel
condition & the pcm drove the fuel trim lean

Next you could have a vacuum leak-in the intake or exhaust system

Third you could have a failed O2 Sensor

Front or Upstream Oxygen Sensors get replaced at 100,000 miles

The front sensors are on the exhaust pipe between the motor &
the converter.

Will need a long handled flex head O2 Sensor Wrench

The broken flex pipe can easily be fixed with a generic flex pipe for less then $100.
The catalytic converter is after that, so has nothing at all to do with it.
But cracks can also brazed or welded to fix.
However, the reason flex pipes break is from excessive engine movement.
That almost always means a loose bushing on a motor mount.
So do that first.
Should be less then $50.
Never take a car to a dealer unless you absolutely have to.
They charge twice what it should cost, because they want to sell new cars, not fix older ones.
