Hello, Eventually your Chrysler Sebring's oxygen sensor will go bad and need to be replaced. The oxygen sensor regulates the oxygen-to-fuel ratio in your vehicle. It also controls your gas mileage. It senses when more or less oxygen needs to be pumped into the fuel lines. If it fails, your Sebring will run poorly and won't get very good gas mileage. Knowing how to change it yourself can save your money. Here are the instruction to change o2 sensors.
Locate your Sebring's oxygen sensor on the pre-catalytic converter. This is located near the front right wheel well of your vehicle. Apply some anti-seize paste to the threads of the new oxygen sensor. Be careful not to get any of the paste on the sensor itself, or it will be ruined. This makes for easy removal of the sensor next time.Remove the old oxygen sensor, using the 7/8-inch wrench. Find the stock sensor wire near the engine-loop lift. This will be by the firewall of your Chrysler Sebring. Splice the stock sensor wire and connect it to the new oxygen sensor's wire, using crimp connectors.Remove the large air-intake pipe that runs from the air box to the rear turbo. Then remove the two smaller air pipes that run from the air box to the blowoff valves. This will give you access to the oxygen sensor. Soak the old oxygen sensor in WD-40 to loosen it. Screw in the sensor by hand. Use the wrench to fully tighten the oxygen sensor so it cannot be removed by hand. Replace the air pipes to the correct valves again.

    Location & aprox. price for oxygen sensor bank 1, on a chrysler sebring 2004, 2.4liter, dohc, non-convertible?

    A four cyl engine only has one bank. So in your case bank one sensor one is in front of the catalytic converter, and sensor two is after the cat.
    The sensor can cost from $25 to $85 dollars depending on which one and your location.
    Keep in mind the code 420 can be caused by other factors than the O2 sensors.

    1998 Chrysler Sebring convertible Not shifting into drive check engine light came on, error code PO715

    DTC P0715 CHRYSLER - Input Speed Sensor 1 Circuit
    P0715 is detected when TCM or ECM does not receive the proper signal from the sensor.

    The input speed sensor detects the primary pulley revolution speed and sends a signal to the Transmission Control Module (TCM) and Engine Control Module (ECM).

    - Engine Light ON (or Service Engine Soon Warning Light)
    - Possible shifting problems

    Possible causes
    - Transmission speed sensor circuit is open or shorted.
    - Poor transmission speed sensor circuit connection
    - Faulty transmission speed sensor

    Hope this clues helps to solve it.

    I have a 1996 Chrysler Sebring LX Convertible. Will the O2 sensor stop the car from starting?

    No. I would say replace the coil packs as they have probably gone bad. Fuel pump not coming on might be an issue but you can check power to both to make sure.

    Code po430 not sure what maybe converter

    One of three (3) possibitlies:
    1. Catalytic Converter is malfunctioning.
    2. O2 Sensor is malfunctioning. This will be the O2 Sensor located on the Catalytic Converter. However you should check and/or replace both sensors if needed.
    3. You have an Exhaust Leak.
    In Order of checking:
    A. Check and Repair any Exhaust Leak.
    B. Replace the O2 Sensor on the Catalytic Converter 1st. Also Known as the Downstream O2 Sensor or HO2 Sensor.
    C. Replace the O2 on the Exhaust Manifold prior to the Catalytic Converter. Also Known as the Upstream O2 Sensor.
    D. Replace the Catalytic Converter.
    Let me know if this helped, or if you have any additional information, problems or questions. Feel free to contact me at!
