Question about 2004 Chrysler Sebring
My 04 Sebring is hard to start at times which causes the check engine light to come on. When this happens it will not accelerate past 3k rmp's. (rpms drop and car runs very rough until I let off accelerator). As long as I keep it below 3000 rpm's all is ok, even though engine light is still on.
On the other hand, if engine starts on the first try, and the check engine light does not come on, the car runs like a champ.

had a problem with a grand prix like that once, was the fuel filter, and injectors, all needed replaced, and it only had 89,000 miles.
Would check fuel filter first. Is it possible you got some bad gas??

if you are not the original owner then the previous owner may have set the idle high, if you take off the throttle body there should be a little screw that will set the idle by keeping the intake valve open more if you unscrew it then the idle rpm will lower

This maybe what is going on with your car. Here is something from Wikipedia, but if you Google it you will find 100's of hits. This is a common problem.
Oil sludge or black sludge is a solid or gel in motor oil caused by the oil gelling or solidifying, usually at temperatures lower than 100 degrees Celsius. Sludge can be a major contributor to Internal combustion engine problems, and can require the engine to be replaced, if the damage is severe. Sludge is usually caused by the presence of water in the oil, and can accumulate with use. Ways to minimize sludge production and accumulation includes performing frequent oil changes, using synthetic oil, and following the manufacturer's engine maintenance routine.
The following engines were reported by the Center for Auto Safety and/or their manufacturers to have a problem with sludge accumulation:

sounds like the coil pack is failing or you could just have water in your fuel.... buy a couple bottles of gas line antifreeze (it sucks up water) and add them to your tank when you fill up.... if that doesn't fix it it is likely the coil pack
