Check Engine light came on and ca will not shift out of 2nd gear!
when car is cold slow to go into gear, have to rev engine and then jerks into gear. Made a whinning sound as well, flushed trans and replaced filter and fluid. This seemed to fix the sound but still slow to shift into gear when cold.
Right now my 2006 Sebring is stuck in my driveway. I cannot get the gear shift out of Park. The car starts with no problem, I put my foot on the brake to move the shift, but it doesn't move!!!!!
the car jumps after coming to a stop. the car will not shift sometimes until i turn the engine off and restart the car
My Daughters 2004 Sebring won't engage in any gear when it starts getting cold roughly 38°. it will eventually go into gear if you sit with it in reverse or D long enough. We had the transmission fluid changed & a complete flush to no avail. We haven't had it repaired as of right now.
does not shift past 3rd?
Does not shift from 1st gear

Paid for rebuilt transmission and it still "downshifts" from D to 2nd gear, sometimes will not go forward but will drive in reverse. Too many miles I guess.
around 34,000 it started jumping at stop lights and stalling. now at 65,000, the check engine light will intermittently come on and the car will not shift any higher than third or forth.

Never shifts the same some times it has a delay when coming to a stop sign and will have a harsh shift starting again
found my gear shifting to be a linkage issue covered under a 2000 recall from Chrysler. Problem solved, no charge
