2004 Chrysler Sebring Q&A
2004 Chrysler Sebring Question: My car seems to cut off when the RPMs are low or the brakes are applied!
My car has cut off twice. Once in Atlanta on June 23rd, I was stopped at a red light. And once last Thursday when I pulled up to a friend's house. As soon as I stopped, the car cut off. In Atlanta, the car turned right on, no problems. At my friend's house, it took a few more seconds for the engine to turn. Now, my check engine light is on (has been on since I bought the car last 09/09), but it's either the cat con or the back O2 sensor (I keep getting different answers as to which one it could be). My car stutters when I get past 45 miles. It also stutters like it wants to cut off when i'm sitting with my foot on the brake. When I put it in park, it won't vibrate as hard, but it'll still sound like it may possibly want to cut off. Now, I've been told it could be the fuel pump/filter or some other issue. I don't have much money to throw around to get this issue figured out. But, with the way my car's running, I feel like it'll totally die on me at any moment. Someone please tell me what you think it could be! I have regular oil changes, and I've just had a transmission, and A/C flush. I just bought the darned thing in September of last year....hellllpppp! Thanks so much! - Tenae
Hi, Can you let us know what diagnostic trouble codes were pulled from the engine computer? Have you had a shop perform a diagnosis or are they guessing as to what it could be? - Bret Bodas
I'm having the same problem with my '05. Still don't know what it is. After a while I started smelling fuel when idling or excelerating. After the temperture dropped significantly, the car just wouldn't start. The mechanic got it started and said the plugs were flooded with fuel, but the problem is still not found or fixed. I need help too! - Visitor
Tell the service tech to check the MAP sensor. Part is about $120. http://townhall-talk.edmunds.com/direct/view/.f1073e3/70 - Marsh3997
