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!!!!!
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.
the car jumps after coming to a stop. the car will not shift sometimes until
i turn the engine off and restart the car
Does not shift from 1st gear
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.
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.
Never shifts the same some times it has a delay when coming to a stop sign and will have a harsh shift starting again
Car runs fine but when getting up to speed past first and second gear either 3rd or fourth gear slips and the car revs up and won't shift anynomre.
found my gear shifting to be a linkage issue covered under a 2000 recall from Chrysler. Problem solved, no charge
Will not shift out of second gear
The car jump in stop, and the car shifting a fixed when turn off.
Hard shifts and stays in gear when accelerating moderately.
stays in low gear for a short time then it will be normal again
bad transmission! They say 2000. to fix it...and it is only worth 1600. w/a good transmission. NOT gonna fix it!
Once it warms it will not shift into 4th.
Needs a replacement or rebuild.
Estimate begins at $2200. for a 2 year warranty included.
