I have a 1997 sebring lxi. It now will not turn over. I sprayed starter fluid in the intake and it turns over. I changed the fuel pump, fuel filter, and the relay. What else could it be?

Do you hear the fuel pump coming on normally comes on for approx 10 sec. when you turn key on, if no pump noise fault is still in fuel system, check the fuse and wiring, check for trouble codes, check injectors, etc

Slight metal shavings are in oil & minor oil sludge in 2001 chrysler sebring v6 2.7 engine & has random starting failure. Is it worth it to pay high price to replace water pump and timing kit?

i would say the metal is from the bearings. a timing chain would be a waste of effort at this point. if you get a used engine with 70000 miles or more, i would replace the water pump and probly the timing chain.if you get later model engine the flywheel and camshaft gear will have to be changed or it wont run.

My 97 sebring xli 2.5l v6 wont fire,timing belt is intact,have spark,have fuel,but wont fire,any suggestions?

Probably the ECM. Lot's of checks to make to see if that is it. Does it try to fire up if ether is squirted in the intake? Is the security light on? Does the dash say "No Bus" Does the fuel pump come on?

If it has a security system don't bother with a junk yard ECM, the car will kill it. Run for 4 seconds and die.

Place in south Florida specializes in Dodge Reman ECM's guaranteed to work with the security system.

2001 chrysler sebring leaking water beneath thermostat housing through a factory hole , I changed thermostat and gasket no change


This is called the water pump weep passage which is a sign that your seal in the water pump has failed.

You need to replace the water pump.

How do i change the water pump on a 1999 2.5 v6 chrysler sebring?


Drain cooling system, remove the timing belt if necessary. Remove water pump mounting bolts. Separate water pump from water inlet pipe and remove.

Replace water pump if it has damage or cracks to pump body. Check the shaft seal for any leaks as evidence by traces of coolant from vent hole. Check for any impeller rubbing inside pump, and for loose or rough bearings.

Clean all gasket and "O" ring surfaces. Install NEW "O" ring on water pipe (wet "O" ring with water to aid assembly). DO NOT allow oil or grease to contact "O" ring. Install NEW gasket on water pump, and install pump inlet opening over water pipe. Install pump-to-block bolts and tighten to specification 18 FT. Lbs. (25n.m). To complete installation, reverse removal procedure.

Hope this helps :)

Can't find the timing marks on '97 Chrysler Sebring 2.5L V6

Crank mark is obvious but cam marks arent. There are two notches in the tin timing covers behind the cam gears. At about the 2 oclock positions
