You need to check your fuel pressure regulator to insure that it isn't leaking back into the vacuum hose. If the diadhram has sprung a leak it will allow the vacuum to suck the fuel through the hose back into the intake.

Humidity in the cylinders would be more related to the erg valve, and there are a whole lot more sensors other than the (intake) manifold absolute pressure sensor involved in producing a lean fuel mix/heavy air mix scenario- TPS, MAF, VAF.

if the engine is not starting and there was water in the cylinders, could you have a blown head gasket? any exhaust drip or white smoke, oil filmed coolant or bubbly oil on the dipstick?

Testimonial: "the oil is clean no water in the oil or on the dip stick just the plugs wet with too much fuel pouring in"

    in that case, yes, it is very likely the map sensor. it could possibly be the tpa, maf or vaf- to a lesser degree.

    ooh, my bad. when you said wet, i assumed air intake humidity. i would have never suggested head gasket if i realized they were wet with fuel because the cylinders flood

    now that i understand the situation, the map really is the most suspect part

2002 chrysler sebring getting hard to start.Started good about a month ago. Now takes longer to start


Is it getting ready for a routine maintenance service? Most such problems are cured or avoided by maintenance and it isn't wise to try and cure problems in isolation unless the maintenance schedule is up to date.

A few possibilities are low cranking speed, insufficient reserve battery voltage, poor spark, worn spark plugs, poor injector spray patterns, fuel pressure low, temperature sensors inaccurate...

I have a 2004 Chrysler Sebring. About a year ago after starting, it started jerking, the engine was loud and black smoke a lot of black smoke coming out of exhause, brought to mechanic opened hood an


Did any of these mechanics put a scanner on this car? There would have been codes(02 sensors, catalytic converter, map, mass air flow,and coolant sensor could have been some of them). Black smoke is too much gas/fuel. Another thing that wouldn't throw a code would be the injector/s stuck open (would result in hard starts). Since you replaced two Map sensors, I wouLd also check for power and ground at this sensor. Check the wires good, as it could be inttermitant.

Most fuel pressure gauges have a bleed valve where you could let the air out.

After removing the fuel injectors and rail to remove the manifold, how do you reinstall the fuel injectors?


the same way you took it apart. put a little grease around the rubber seals so they will slide in easier. just tap on the fuel rail while lightly tapping it into place.

Tried switching injectors reflashed PCM spark plugs but still p0301 comes back, car runs good


Code P0301 = Cylinder 1 Misfire Detected
Start with the “easy to check” items first...Some of these checks/repairs require specialized tools or equipment. A trusted repair shop or dealer would be would be advised to correct this problem.
Try changing the spark plugs, Check the coil, TPS sensor & MAP sensor voltage. Check the fuel pressure, check for vacuum leaks including intake manifold. Dirty or plugged injector, timing, compression test-including leak test--meaning, put #1 on TDC then charge the cylinder with air (~30lbs), and check for leak via exhaust/intake. Update PCM to the latest software, Worn camshaft.

2003 Chrysler Sebring won't start


Probably the switch that is made when you have it in park. there is a switch that tells the car its in park. try and put the transmission in Neutral and see if it will start. Most cars will allow you to start the engine inpark and neutral. If it starts in neutral all the time then its the switch.
