Question about 1998 Chrysler Sebring

1 Answer

1998 Sebring JXi... oil pressure light came on then lost all power (like in neutral)

I had just left home, maybe 5 minutes of driving, when I got to stop sign oil pressure light came on. When I went to give it gas to leave stop sign I had no power, almost like I was in neutral. Any ideas??!! Ive read a lot about the oil pressure switch/sensor but a lot of folks are saying that changing it didn't help.... any other ideas?

Have you checked the oil level in the engine? Without suffient oil, the oil pressure will drop.

Could be a bad oil pressure switch, or a bad oil pump. Both will cause this issue. Hope it is the switch b/c the oil pump is a costly repair.

SOURCE: oil light on while driving 2002 Sebring

2.7 ? This motor has oil problems if not changed every 3000 miles. Put a chrysler filter on it and the correct weight of oil, never use a fram oil filter.

SOURCE: have a 1998 sebring jxi that the ac starts blowing

Probably a vacuum line loose or broken. With the engine running, wiggle all hoses around under the hood, and listen for a hiss.

SOURCE: 98 Sebring JXI turn signals work right/left and

A fast flash at the dash indicates there is a bulb out somewhere.
Have someone check all the bulbs outside while you try the brakes, lights and turn signals.

SOURCE: oil light comes on while at an stop sign and traffic light

Check the oil level, if the oi level is good. Then it's a good chance that the oil pressure sensor may have gone bad and needs to be replaced as long as there is no damaging noise coming from the engine.

It is very hard to try to reach the sensor from under the car. Removed the battery, air box, also moved the fuse box aside just a bit to get more room to work (not necessary though if you have long arms). After removing/moving those parts you'll have plenty of room to work with. Simply disconnect the electric connection and remove the sensor with a socket. The part is $11.99 at Auto Zone with a lifetime warranty! (not just a dealer only item :]) The socket isn't a special socket its just a 27mm deep well. I hope this helps someone, overall the job isn't hard so no need to pay anyone to do it for you! Good luck, the oil pressure sending unit located high on the back of the engine block.

1999 chrysler sebring low oil pressure at idle

It may be the oil pump. If the gauge is going up when the rpms increase it's probably not the gauge or pressure switch. If the computer senses the oil pressure is low it will shut the vehicle off to try to save it's self from catastrophic failure. Also it may start cranking longer before starting. Thats it building oil pressure before the computer will let it start. Make sure oil is full, clean & thick.

I have a 1997 ford expedition and today when i started it I had oil pressure then I drove down the road and lost all pressure and engine started to tick, I turned the engine off and then back on and The...

Sounds like the oil pump is going out. I would not drive it until you find out for sure. The ticking is oil not reaching the valves and rockers.

1998 Chrysler Sebring JXI V6 2.5L Transmission Problem

most likely a valve body or a shift solenoid issue, but at the very least the trans pan and valve must come out and or be replaced, those 2 parts are fairly expensive, but don't know how much and don't wish to mislead you, have the shop look at it, u can always decline the repair.
