2004 Chrysler Sebring Q&A
2004 Chrysler Sebring Question: where can I find someone to replace my thermostat?
My sebring came from florida. I bought it used with the service engine light on. They told me it was because of a bubble in the gas tank. Lol. This will be the 3rd winter with no heat. The ac is good and the blowers are working fine. every diagnostics I had the first thing that pops up is thermostat. Some mechanics tell me they won't touch it because it is a nightmare. Other mechanics tried to replace it but can't get to one bolt. I took it to the dealer and he told me to keep the coolant level up and they were not going to replace the thermostat. I drove it 2,000 miles after that and haven't added any coolant. I took it to a oil change place and they say I am not losing any coolant so they never added any. If someone could please help me find someone that will be willing to tackle my problem I would really appreicate it. I don't have the time to keep running back and forth to get this fixed. i am thinking about taking it to another dealer but I am afraid to be shot down again. here is my phone number 586 549-6869 please leave a message as i don't answer the phone when i am driving. Is there someone in chryslers that can help me? kim - knpierce
Must be the 2.7L V6. It is a pain in the as....butt. However it is doable keep looking and you will find a shop that will tackle it. Use Chrysler parts though! I did one and that was my LAST. 'Very' poorly designed!! Lower hose stat and one bolt is almost impossible to get to. Ain't going to be a cheap fix! CAUTION! Find a shop that knows that they can do it, ask if they have done this before. - pushrod
