    113,000 and it does not stop, but it will not progress through the 3000 RPM mark, almost like it's a rev limiter. It's exactly at 3000 RPM.

    I had a check engine light and it came up with a cam position sensor and coolant temp switch, so I had it reset. Coolant was low and the oil level was a little high, but it's fine now. It seemed like a fuel flow issue, but could have very well been electrical with the cam sensor. I'll let you know if it comes back.

Sound like a fuel delivery issue. Maybe bad fuel plugged fuel filter limiting fuel. Also check air filter.

Make SURE you have enough oil in engine, check dip stick. Make sure oil is not leaking from drain plug or oil filter.

My 2006 sebring cuts out at 3500rpm, has engine light on, have replaced fuel pump and cam shaft sensor

Most auto stores (Autozone) will use a scantool to tell you what the problem is & clear off the check engine light. It is a free service, but I'd suggest bringing a pen/paper to write down the error code & Google it afterwards. It's definitely handy for getting rid of the check engine light.

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.

2007 chrysler sebring will start but cuts off

Do you have a check engine light on ? Common problem with Chrysler is the crank sensor, won way to check is with a scanner, connect to dlc, and goin to live data stream and watch your rpm if you have no signal while cranking that's your problem,another possible cause could be your anti theft system , is your security light blinking ,staying on or not coming on at all?

I am receiving a code p0303 on my chrysler sebring and my oil light is coming on when the RPM hits around 5. I changed the spark plugs and a week later the engine started jumping a little. how can i fix...

Thanks for choosing FixYa and welcome. The code, as you already know, is the #3 misfire. You may have an issue with the idle control sensor or map sensor. Did you change the wires also?

My check engine light came on and my was bogging and chugging at 2500 to 3000 RPM and now it would not start unless I left the key turned and cranked for 5-10 seconds. Error codes are P0522 Oil Pressure...

There is a new PCM flash for this condition, the Technical service bulletin reference # is 18-026-03. The update will need to be done by a dealer. I would recommend this before replacing any parts.
