Question about 2001 Chrysler Sebring
When I go to start up the car all it does is click.. but after several attempts it cranks... Can you tell me if the starter is about to go out... Second question after ther car is running for a while it starts miss when you come to a light like it going to cut off... Like its not getting enough fuel... and ther is like smoke coming off the engine like if there is a leak...
I addressed your smoking and missing issues in your other problem post, but let's take a look at your starter problem.
Make sure that all your battery connections are good. A bad connection will get hot if that is the problem when you try and crank the engine. Another way to check for battery problems is to turn on the headlights while trying to start... if the headlights dim to the point of going out, or almost out, it is probably a connection at the battery if a hot terminal is felt, or the battery itself if no hot terminal is felt.
It could possibly be a bad ignition switch, but if the battery and connections are good, I'm betting it's the starter that is bad.
I hope this helps you figure out what the problems are, but please don't hesitate to ask if you have questions or to post further comments on this problem. And PLEASE be so kind as to rate my advice --- that is my only compensation for serving you! And let us know how it goes!
Best of luck and thank you!
