Question about Chrysler Sebring

1 Answer

The timing belt on my 2003 Chrysler Sebring LX (93,000 miles) blew out yesterday. The shop I took it to is quoting the price to fix it between $1,200 - $1,800, depending on if any of the valves were also bent when the timing belt went out. Does this sound about standard in cost? I thought it seemed high, but I know it can be steep especially with an Mitsubishi interference engine. Any insight you could provide would be helpful. THANKS!

Ok here is the best way to handle this, replace the timing belt and the water pump if it is driven by the timing belt, also check that that all the idler puley's are ok and the tensioner pulley, start the engine, if it just spins free you have damaged the valves, then it gets kind of expensive since the cylinder head(s) ,must be taken off, do one thing at a time. What engine do you have, that does make quite a difference.

Getting ready to purchase 2002 chrysler sebring. Took it for a 15 mile test drive and the oil light kept flashing and the car made a ticking noise the whole time. Any ideas? It has 102,000 miles.


Recommendation... Do Not purchase an 02 chrysler sebring! While it is a cute car and looks nice, they have consistently been rated as one of the worst vehicles based on expense of shop repairs, and also rated one of the worst vehicles for amount of time spent in shops. The oil light flashing is a sign that the car should not be driven due to not enough oil in the vehicle, any owner who overlooks that light, especially when trying to sell it, has obviously not taken very good care of it, therefor another reason.. NOT to by a chrysler sebring.

2004 Chrysler Sebring problems


That dealer is ripping you off. Ask around to find a good repair shop.
Just for the heck of it, I called an auto parts store, and the cost of the timing belt is around $36.00 and the sensor is about $100.00.
Different shops charge different labor rates. But it shouldn't cost anywhere near that dealer. Good luck.

Approx how much to replace the timing bell on 2000 chrysler 300m?


HI there. My water pump just went out on my 2004 300M with 85000 miles. My cost was about $400 to replace the water pump and timing belt.
I recommend replacing the water pump at the same time since you have to take the timing belt off to change the water pump.
$350 is a good price. The dealer will charge you double that.
