Question about Chrysler Sebring

1 Answer

Ihave a 2008 chysler sebring with 52000km on it.i have been having problems with it running rough malfunction indicator light comes on .took it to chysler dealer and they said gas cap was off and they figured there was water in gas.they tested the gas and said it was fine.they did a fuel system flush. had to reurn car back to dealer a week later he then changed the #4 plug to the #6 cylinder to see if that made any difference. retured the car back a third time a week later they said the car was carbed up in the injector at this time they cleaned them and suggested i use high test gas instead of regular. car ran for 3 weeks fine then the car started missfiring and gas was coming out of the exhaust system. had it towed to the dealer because it would not start now the service manager whom i have had contact nwith prior says that it is water in the gas and would possibly not be covered under the warranty #1 cylinder is filled with gas service manage said it could cost thousands of dollar to repair

Hello stintgirl.

Hmmm.... they previously tested the fuel and said it was OK, but later said it wasn't?
A fuel system flush (did they charge you for this service?), switching spark plugs, cleaned fuel injectors. Now they are saying no warranty?
I would be flying off the handle at this point.
You took it in originally and expected a repair at that point. They had their chance to repair it the first time and do it right. Apparently they did not do that for you.
Now it's #1 injector stuck open flooding out the engine. Did they do damage when they flushed the injectors? Possibly.
I would say that they are responsible to fix your car properly at this point, and under warranty too.

A hint about a lawyer may help things along.

I hope you are able to reach a satisfactory repair in this case.
Is there another Chrysler dealer nearby you could take your car in the future? I don't think I would take my car to a shop like this one.

Take care and thank you for using FixYa.

You must have the dealer scan the engine control system module for fault codes, one or more is set whenever the light is turned on. This should be covered under the emission system warranty for 7/70,000.

a sticking thermostat will cause the heat to be cold, that bleeder screw is to help purge the air out of the cooling system, when you add coolant to the radiator loosen this screw a bit and it will let the air out of the system, loosen the screw and add water until you get just water coming out, not bubbles, if it has bubbles coming out all the air isnt out of the system, try this first before replacing thermostat as air in the system will have an effect on the system

Hello, let's see what we can do.
To answer your question, yes they are related. Either your ABS system is malfunctioning, you need to replace your brake pads or the vacuum booster is leaking.
Do you hear a hissing sound under the hood? If so it might be the vacuum booster. Does the engine run rough when you apply the brakes? That can indicate the same problem. Let me know what you find.
