Check for fuel flow from the tank . check for blocked fuel filter. check that the choke butterfly is not being allowed to close at high air flow causing the engine to flood.

2005 chrysler sebring loses power driving up hill & RPM is up high, Ive changed, spark plugs & air filter. dont know what to do.


Not sure I am following your story.
Are you saying the transmission is slipping and therefore the RPM is high even tho the road speed is not ?
Or is the transmission not upshifting to the next gear at a normal road speed ?
Is the check engine light on ?

Time for carb cleaning , blow the jets with compressed air,check the float level.
Check the spark plug and replace if neccessary.
Check the air filter too, and if you don't have an 'inline' filter for your fuel line,install one.
Basically yr bike's engine needs a tune up...check the valve clearance too!
Hope this helps!

Bogs down at 25 30 mph 1st gear 45 in 2nd gear


  • Check to see that the choke is not partially on.
  • Drain the carbs and clean them with B12 chemtool or any other good carb cleaner. The main jets in the carbs are probably gummed up. To clean the carbs properly they will need to be removed from the bike. Be sure to balance and synchronize the carbs when reinstalling.
  • Remove and clean the petcock water trap and clean the trap of water and rust etc. If a filter screen is present clean it as well.
  • Set idle speed to factory specs. Do not use gas with Ethanol.
This should fix the bog problem.
