Report: Orange Crust Formation Due to Leak at Coolant Bleeder Valve
Chrysler Sebring Problem
Engine Affected: 2.7L V6
Average Mileage: 72,800 mi (40,000 mi - 180,000 mi)
For the sedan trim only, Coolant can leak at the coolant bleeder valve and is usually evident because of an orange crust formation on the housing. A revised bleeder and housing is available to correct this problem.

had the car running while i brushed off the snow. the compressor fan kicked on as i was getting in and theats when i saw my check engine light on. i got in and drove it a few feet before i decided to shut it off and check it out. everything looked fine in the dark, but it wouldn't start again. next day i found out the coolant was non exsistant. put more fluid in on a whim, and it started right up. turns out that theres a failsafe that prevents you from over heating your engine. just glad i didnt have to tow it over this.

Yep my coolant bleeder valve started leaking and that cost me over $300 at the deeler.
