Question about 1998 Chrysler Sebring

2 Answers

97 Sebring stall

My 97 Sebring LXI was giving me problems starting for a couple of weeks and now it wont start at all. I replaced the fuel pump and filter and I dont hear anything as far as the fuel pump turning on. I think this may be the problem to why my car wont start. I've been trying to locate the fuel pump relay but I am unable to find it. I was told it is under the wheel well so I completely removed the front bumper and I still cannot find it, Please help me out.

Were you able to hear the fuel pump before you had the problem? Some of these cars won't let the fuel pump run until the computer picks up distributor signal first. Chryslers are known for cam and crank sensors going bad. Not a back-yard repair, though. Diagnosing it is half of the problem, repairing it is the other. Hopefully the posts come up with more obvious stuff.

Verify you have spark, those are known to have issues with the camshaft sensor in the distributor. I have put 2 distributors in my daughter's 97 sebring jxi, did the same thing.

I have a 1998 Chrysler Sebring Coupe Lxi and have


first as a rule of thumb, check your fuses
then check for spark at the spark plugs
then check for fuel at the fuel rail
you should eliminate some of the system at this time

1999 Chrsler Sebring LXi v6 2.5L. Car dies.


I had the same problem with my 1999 Chrysler Sebring 2.5L V6 Convertable. It started stalling at intersections; would lose RPMs' and die while driving it; and would not start unless it sat for a few minutes. Once it started, you'd have the scenario start all over again...

I hadn't kept up my maintenance schedule like I usually do, so I did the usual; I replaced my spark plugs and wires, changed the oil and filters, ect...

Finally, after it doing the same thing and wasting a ton of time and frustration on the side of the road, I took it to a mechanic that put it on his $9,000 diagnostic machine. The verdict; CRANK SHAFT POSITION SENSOR!

The Haynes Manual will tell you wrong on its location for the 1999 Lxi 2.5L V6 convertable; it is NOT LOCATED BEHIND THE BATTERY TRAY. The crankshaft position sensor is actually located about 4 to 6 inches below the distributor, which is about dead center of the motor, on the transaxle housing.

You do have to take off the tire and the skirt cover to get to it. I had to purchase two long socket extensions just to get to the bolt that mounts the sensor to the transaxle housing; but it was well worth the 20 bucks...

All in all, it took me three hours to find the damn thing, and then to figure out what I needed to take the old one off and get the new one installed.

The $65 dollars that I spent to find out what the problem was is worth it....

Now, the car runs better than ever....

Got a 97 Sebring coupe with new fuel pump and


first you will need to find out if you have a fuel regulator... look on the end of the fuel rail on the engine for a round bell shape part with a vacuum line attached, remove the vacuum line and see if there is fuel bubbling from the regulator... if so you found the problem.. if not respond and ill let you know where to go from there. good luck

97 sebring lxi, 2.5L - car died leaving driveway. wont start. been running fine, no noises, hiccups and nothing when it died. battery good, changed plugs, fuel pump buzzes when key is turned, engine cranks...


first thing you got to do is determen weather its electrical or fuel problem, you can take a test light and hook to a ground and the light end to a spark plug and see if it lights while someone turns over engine, if it lights you got spark. if its got spark, on to fuel, take fuel pressure test, don't think because you can hear pump working does not mean it is, it can sound like it is but its not, at least putting out enought pressure, not the correct amount it will not run. pumps will go out just that way with no warning at all.
