Question about 2004 Chrysler Sebring

1 Answer

I have a 2004 chrysler sebring and its overheating. ive taken it to a shop and they replaced the radiator. that wasnt the problem. the next day i took it back and the shop said they fixed a hole in one of my hoses. that wasnt the problem either because my car is still leaking anti freeze and its still overheating. i cant even drive 3 blocks without the light coming on. what else could be the reason for my car overheating ?

SOURCE: replaced cracked radiator in 2000 Chrysler LHS but car still overheating. What could be the problem?

I had the same problem. My Chrysler LHS kept overheating. I had the thermostat changed out first and it didn't help. Then I had the water pump changed out and still did no good. Then changed out the radiator, still overheated. Come to find out the people that changed my thermostat put it in backwards. Evidently, the thermostats for these cars look different from all the others and people are not sure how to put them in. I took mine to a Chrysler dealer and they fixed it for me.

There are way too many possibilities for us to try to start to diagnose your car. . Id check all fuses and fusible links if I were you., Body shops often jump start cars that are in their shops for long periods of time, Jump starting can cause alot of issues.

SOURCE: 1999 Chrysler Sebring Overheating

running the vehicle without a thermostat is not a check. These cars have a computer control, running it without a thermostat or one in the wrong tempertature range will not let the system operate properly.

I have a 2004 Chrysler Sebring and it is running hot I have replaced the thermostat 10 times and it stills run hot no leak from the radiator but it bubbles back out ouf the intake jug

Take the car to a mechanic and have the coolant tested for hydrocarbons. A constantly overheating vehicle may often have a blown head gasket that causes hot gases to overheat the coolant.

My 2004 Chrysler Sebring just started overheating. I started to notice I wasn't getting any heat, not sure if the two are connected. Then the gauge needle starts to adjust from middle to extremely hot. ...

first make sure you don't have white smoke coming out of tail pipe then check the radiator if it is cold after warmed up then you could go to the two main hose coming from the radiator be careful one could be hot follow the cold one ie water pump thermostat head gasket are as easy as a radiator cap good luck

Chrysler sebring 01 overheats very quickly. I have replaced radiator, thermostat. It ran fine for about a week. Overheated again. Did a radiator flush due to rust in radiator. I was having to put water...

If your having to put that much water in it I would lean towards a bad head gasket your other symptoms would make me think possible water pump. I'd check them both 1 of the 2 is most likely the prob or possiobly both. Good luck.
