Check your Transmission Fluid (ATF) level. There should be instructions in the Owner's Manual or search (Google) online.

2004 Chrysler Sebring will only heat up when in park, then it goes cold when I start to drive

Hello anonymous freezing girl.

The one thing that will do precisely what you describe is a
FAILING (or absent) thermostat...

Typically located at the engine end of your to
RADIATOR HOSE... b'twix $10 & $20 USD...

For MOST all engines to run efficiently... they must
reach & maintain an operating temperature of 180 °F
(Fahrenheit)... Temperatures vary by engine size...

My 2004 chrysler sebring overheats really bad, i can barely drive 3 miles before it reaches 3/4. I replaced the thermostat and both of the fans kick on.

you would only have water in the oil if there was a a leak in the head gasket or water jacket ports in the engine. if you are losing water,that quickly,then it's either a hose,radiator, or water pump. put a piece of cardboard under veh after youve filled the radiator and veh is cool, that way you can determine the location of leak. if you don't see the location of leak the next day, then odds are it is the water pump and only loses water after engine warms up an pressure forces it out the weep hole in the pump while driving. (note: if you have white smoke coming out of tailpipe then you probably have a blowed head gasket,)

Hello. I have 1997 Chrysler Sebring Lx (2.0 Liter, automatic engine). This morning I found out that there was oil leaking from the driver side bottom. I looked at the bottom of my car, and it was all...

Power steering fluid wouldn't cause that, try the transmission fluid level. That's likely where the fluid is coming from if the car won't move and leaking transmission fluid to the point that your car won't move is probably not an easy or inexpensive fix.

When the engine temp looks normal on the gauge but you get no heat inside unless your keeping the RPMs up by driving it,It usually means the fluid in the radiator is very low.wait until it is cooled completely and remove the radiator cap and fill completely,Check resovour and fill to correct level,

'98 subaru wont shift from 1st unless rpms are high- morning only

When you first start driving it usually takes atleast 4 miles to warm the transmission to operating temperature. The temp of the motor may say it is warmed up, But, the trans fluid and differential fluid only begins to warm as you drive and the parts are actually working. THe computer has sensors that keep the trans from shifting to OD until the temp is up as not to add stress to the motor until warmed properly. Hope this helps and have a good day.
