Question about 2007 Chrysler Sebring Sedan

1 Answer

Steering issues: i can feel a binding/clunking in the steering wheel of my 2007 chrysler sebring as i turn left or right, stop, and at accelerating? i do not know WHAT this is and have had extensive work done to the front tend w/dealership in trying to remedy the problem. i thought FOR SURE that, after this problem occurred and i pushed down on the hood and heard/felt it in the front passenger strut that that was the smoking gun..they've been been replaced and 2dys later its doing it again after driving for 25min..NOT as bad tho, and, i cant mimick it by the 'push down on the hood' trick anymore? what the heck is going on? NOTE: steering column bushings have been replaced, power steering motor, new fluid, new trans fluid, brake rotors too, and STIL, have this 'issue?' HELP!!

Did they replace entire strut & spring assy, with new, or just do struts? Feel where spring of strut sits on strut base at bottom & see if you can feel piece of thin rubber between spring & base of strut, or if spring is up against the edge of the base (seat). Sometimes I've seen the rubber between them move and cause spring to rub up against the seat or base of strut, (meatl on metal) especially when turning.

Here is the Technical Service Bulletin that maybe of help, worth looking into but can't guarantee that it would fix your problem Steering - Steering Column Clunking When Turning TECHNICAL Bulletin No.: 01-02-32-001P Date: November 25, 2009 Subject: Clunk Felt/Noise Heard From Steering Column, Steering Gear and/or Front Of Vehicle During Turning Maneuver and/or Steering Wheel Rotation (Replace Intermediate Shaft As Directed) Models: 2001-2004 Buick Regal 2005-2008 Buick Allure (Canada Only), LaCrosse 2000-2008 Chevrolet Impala 2000-2007 Chevrolet Monte Carlo 1998-2002 Oldsmobile Intrigue 2004-2007 Pontiac Grand Prix Supercede: This bulletin is being revised to add the 2008 Buick LaCrosse/Allure. Please discard Corporate Bulletin Number 01-02-32-001O (Section 02 - Steering). Condition Some customers may comment on a clunk type noise coming from the front of the vehicle while driving during a turning maneuver.

1. Locate a large area (parking lot) where the vehicle can be turned in a tight circle. 2. Turn the steering wheel to the right and/or left all the way to the steering lock, then off the steering lock a 1/4 turn. 3. Drive the vehicle approximately 5 km/h (3 mph) in a circle, preferably over rough pavement or seams on the road surface. 4. Drive the vehicle straight ahead at idle speed while applying and releasing the brake pedal. Listen/feel the steering wheel for the clunk/noise condition. 5. If a clunk is felt in the steering wheel, the MOST likely cause is the I-shaft - not the steering gear. Continue with the correction. Correction DO THIS - Replace the intermediate shaft DON'T DO THIS - DO NOT lube the intermediate shaft Replace the existing intermediate shaft

2004 chrysler sebring... when i drive it more then 30 miles there is a ticking sound in the engine, theres a squeaky noise in the front when i go over a bumb. and the major thing is that theres a harsh...


Ticking in motor after engine heats up- do you keep your oil changed every 3,000 miles? Broken down and dirty oil will cause this. Squeek over bumps could be bad strut or it could be related to the harsh grinding noise going around turns. That is indicative of a bad CV joint or wheel bearing.
Raise car on side noise is coming from. Grab wheel with both hands and pull/push on wheel then wiggle back and forth. Feel excessive play? Grab drive axle also doing same thing feel for play or notice if rubber boot on drive axle torn or separated from axle. Usually you will feel play or notice a kind of clunking. I would say replace CV joint and wheel bearing at the same time as one will usually affect the other and both will be bad if one has went out. Not an easy fix and requires special tools. Take to a qualified mechanic, it will save you a big headache.

How to bleed power steering system to a 1997 chrysler sebring


Very simple!!! I posted this under how to bleed the steering system in the "Tips" section....you can do this yourself and is very easy.

Sebring Coupe And Avenger
  1. Check the power steering fluid level, and add if necessary.

Use only MOPAR ATF PLUS automatic transmission fluid type 7176, DEXRON II automatic transmission fluid, or equivalent, in the power steering system.

  1. Raise and safely support the vehicle to lift the front wheels off the ground.
  2. Manually turn the pump pulley a few times.
  3. Turn the steering wheel all the way to the left and to the right 5 or 6 times.

If bleeding is attempted with the engine running, air will be absorbed in the fluid. Bleed only while cranking the engine.

  1. Disconnect the ignition high tension cable and, while operating the starter motor intermittently, turn the steering wheel all the way to the left and right 5-6 times for 15-20 seconds. During the bleeding procedure, make sure the fluid in the reservoir never falls below the lower position of the filter.
  2. Connect the ignition high tension cable, then start the engine and allow it to idle.
  3. Turn the steering wheel left and right until there are no air bubbles in the reservoir. Confirm that the fluid is not milky and that the level is up to the specified position on the dipstick. Also confirm that there is very little change in the fluid level when the steering wheel is turned. If the fluid level changes more than 0.2 inches (about a 1/4 inch), the air has not been completely bled. Repeat the process.

    // // 0) preLoad.src = ctl00_cphLeft_chRepairTreeNav_tvTOC_ImageArray[i]; } ctl00_cphLeft_chRepairTreeNav_tvTOC_Data.lastIndex = 26; ctl00_cphLeft_chRepairTreeNav_tvTOC_Data.populateLog = theForm.elements['ctl00_cphLeft_chRepairTreeNav_tvTOC_PopulateLog']; ctl00_cphLeft_chRepairTreeNav_tvTOC_Data.treeViewID = 'ctl00$cphLeft$chRepairTreeNav$tvTOC'; ctl00_cphLeft_chRepairTreeNav_tvTOC_Data.name = 'ctl00_cphLeft_chRepairTreeNav_tvTOC_Data'; //]]> var _strTreeScrollHidName = 'ctl00_hidTreeScrollPos'; c17hydro_19.gif

      Check whether or not the fluid level changes between when the engine is running and when it is stopped

    My key will not turn


    Hum...Try this.

    With you left hand on the steering wheel and your right hand on the key, turn the key slightly until you feel resistance. Keep the pressure used to turn the key and pull the steering wheel to the left like you are turning left. If this doesn't work then turn the steering wheel to the right while trying to turn the key. If the problem is caused by the steering wheel lock this should allow you to turn the key and starrt your car. It is a very common issue and shows up alot when cars are parked with the wheels turned somewhat to one side or the other.
