Report: Sensor Failure Inside Distributor May Cause Stalling/Starting Issues
Chrysler Sebring Problem
Electrical & Lights Affected: Coupe
Average Mileage: 98,557 mi (14,000 mi - 184,000 mi)
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.

stall or near stall at low speeds (stop or stopping) especially when it's rainy or humid outside. Getting worse with age but it started when the car was 6mo. mine.

I bought this car used and it started but the timing belt had never been replaced and was forced to replace it. For anyone who is considering this job I would suggest a lift cause it was a bear and took me and my son over two months to do because we had to make new tools to loosten these bolts that held the bracket over the covers. So when I get done the car wont start so i pull the distributor and decide to then pull the crankshaft position sensor and the sensor breaks off half way so I have freeze the plastic to shrink it then remove it from car. So now I have replaced that and am now ordering a new distributor to put in because it still would not start.

Car will stall when driving it. I have to pull over and wait for a while then car usually starts again. I had a mechanic try to find out the problem he was not successful.

My wife's Sebring '04 stalled several times, is hard to start, and it would misfire sometimes while accelerating. I used a car diagnostic scanner 1 code came up, P0340. guess the Camshaft sensor is bad. Going to take it in.
car dies at stopping and taking off horn honks randomly upon stalling of engine.
am told need distributor replaced car would not start needed towing how much will it cost
