1996 Chrysler Sebring Problems

Automatic Transmission May Have Shifting Problems

The automatic transmission can develop problems like erratic shifting, rough shifting, or delayed gear engagement. Repairs for many of these problems are outlined in service bulletins.

No Start/Stalling Issues Due to Internal Distributor Fault

Sensor failure inside the distributor can cause intermittent stalling or a failure to start. In addition, the wires to the distributor are susceptible to internal damage, which can cause the same symptoms.

Head Gasket May Fail Prematurely
