2005 Chrysler Sebring Problems

A plugged AC evaporator drain tube can cause a water leak inside the car; usually near the front passenger's feet.

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.

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.

2005 Chrysler Sebring Questions

Purchased this Sebring Conv. A few years back. I like it. No major issues. Recently discovered the passenger floorboard is wet, kind of greasy. Help

There is coolant spray on the engine centered at the thermostat/temp sensor area. Seems to be coming from below that point. No visible hose leaks. Water in the overflow tank is cool. Some coolant loss is evident when overheated.

Had to have jump 3 or 4 times in the last month so I replaced the battery. This morning battery totally dead. Hooked up battery charger and something with a motor or pump is running with the key off and large drain.
