Question about Chrysler Sebring

1 Answer

2001 Chrysler Sebring Convertible - 6 cyl 2.7L engine I'm hearing a gurgling noise from the radiator reservoir. It appears that when I shut the car off the heated water backs up into the reservoir. What can be making this happen? The temp gauge reads normal when I drive the car. Thanks for any insight into this problem.

Well, a gurgling noise means that the antifreeze/coolant is boiling over somewhere due to high heat.

I would get an antifreeze/coolant tester from your local parts store and check the strength of the antifreeze. It should be 50/50 coolant to water ratio according to the balls that float inside of the tester. If there's too much water, it will boil over even though the temp gauge says things are fine.

Also, when was the last time the system was flushed and replaced with new coolant. Should do it every 1 or 2 years ideally, but not more than 5 year intervals to make sure sediment doesn't build up in the system.

If you use green coolant it shouldn't look like it's watery to the naked eye.

How much will it cost for a 2001 sebring convertible new raditor and installation?

I found plenty of compatible radiators for around $100. Expect about 1.5 - 2 hours for the job plus you should also plan to replace the thermostat and all the coolant at the same time. So maybe $75 for the coolant and thermostat. Labor varies but a good independent shop I use charges $65/hr.

I included a link to a replacement radiator just to give you an idea of pricing. Chrysler Sebring Radiator

Knocking in engine

check the oil...even the radiator might be out of water...of course, check it when the engine temperature is do not want to open a hot radiator. Also, it these fluids are o.k., it might need an oil change...your pistons might be getting stuck due to a need of an oil change. Also, with a 2001 model, you might want to up your gasoline to MID instead of REGULAR. Regular is cheaper, hence, it is what you get.
