Question Answered: 

I don't have the maintenance chart for the 2007 Sebring, but if you look at the parts that are actually replaced at the 60k service, that will give you a good idea as to what is most important, as well as an inspection of the brakes, belts, hoses etc. Your owners manual should have the maintenance chart.

Question Answered: 

It's very likely that the head gasket is your problem. These gaskets often leak if the engine has been overheated, but can occur on an engine with high mileage too. The next step is to have a shop remove the head(s) and inspect the head gaskets.

Check the fuse for the brake lights first, then make sure the bulbs are OK. Then you should look at the brake light switch, some are adjustable, and will not work correctly if out of adjustment. The switch may also be defective. There are other possibilities but these are a good place to start!

Question Answered: 

If you smell gasoline, have it checked out yesterday! A fuel leak can cause a fire and a burned up vehicle may be the least of your problems, so don't procrastinate on this!

Question Answered: 

If you need the upper control arm (with ball joint) and the lower ball joint, plus alignment, it should run about $345.00 - $511.00 (not including tax, shop charges, diagnosis etc.). However since the ball joints came apart while driving, other damage may have been done. Make sure you have the ball joints on the other side checked out so this doesn't have the same problem!
