Question about 2008 Chrysler Sebring Convertible
I just purchased a used 2008 Sebring convertible. I've had it for about 2 months with no issue until now. If it idles for more than a minute (e.g. waiting at train tracks) the whole car starts to vibrate and feels like it will stall. It hasn't stalled yet, but feels like it will.
There have also been a couple of times where the engine has taken a little longer to start. It turns over, but sometimes seems like it won't. I did check with the dealer prior to purchase to confirm that the recall work on this vehicle was already done. Any suggestions?
Hi. Do this. Go to an auto parts store, get a bottle of seafoam, a fuel additive that will clean the engine, fuel injectors, remove water from the fuel tank, etc. Drive for ten miles and you will most likely see a huge improvement. If this does not do the trick change the fuel filter as the symptoms you are having indicate that you are not getting enough fuel into the engine. J.
