Engine stalling when stopped at traffic light.
Engine is stalling once car is cranked. When pressing the brakes to put car in reverse or drive, the car cuts off. Once able to get into drive and try to drive, the car's brakes can not be touched or the car will stop instantly. The car also does stop and go driving like it's pulling on something heavy.
While idling at a stop light in ocean city, new jersey, engine surged then stalled. The car was then driven two blocks to a corner sunoco station and while idling at the gas station, the car again surged and died. Car was taken to atlantic Chrysler, but service could not duplicate the problem and the computer did not reflect it. Jan. 13, 2013, while driving in atlantic city, NJ, car engine revved and stalled while stopped at a stop light. The car surged forward slightly before breaks halted forward progress of car, nearly hitting the car in front of me. This happened twice before getting the car home. During the same trip the dash board light activated indicating the convertible top was in operation. The light did not deactivate until the convertible top had actually been activated, taken down and replaced. I have read a number of similar reports to this one. This is a dangerous situation and has to have a fix by now.

I have a 2008 Chrysler Sebring convertible. The engine has begun stalling and surging at red lights. The stalling has the potential to cause an accident, but the surging is much more dangerous. The engine will suddenly jump from idle to a couple thousand rpm. If you're not ready for it you can easily be pulled forward several feet, potentially into the path of an oncoming car. You have to apply excessive pressure on the brake pedal to prevent being pulled. The surges only last a few moments and then the engine returns to idle. I was looking for a fix and started searching the symptoms and found dozens of posts of people having exactly the same issue. Most have tried several fixes for hundreds of dollars and still have the same dangerous condition. Our car is at the dealer now, but at this point I do not know if they can solve the issue. Judging from the posts I found this has been happening since at least 2007, and there are a lot of frustrated owners dealing with it.
I just bought a 2002 Chrysler Sebring convertible. I have had the car for a month, I bought it from my mother. The oil was changed right before I bought it and I haven't driving more than 3000 miles since I bought the car. On Friday October 22nd, 2010 my engine started knocking when I started it up and when I started driving it, the oil light started flickering and the engine stalled out at every stop light. The car started jerking while I was driving it and I had aaa come tow it to their auto shop and they confirmed that I will need a new engine for the car. It has approximately 92,000 miles on it and the mechanic told me about the problems the 2. 7 liter engines in Chryslers and dodges. I can't afford to replace the engine especially since I just paid money for this car about a month ago! I am so upset!.
As I approached a stop light and had to stop, the engine stalled, and I had to restart it from the ignition. It happened on three other occasions (once in a left turn at a stop sign). The steering problem is progressively aggravating to the point of loosing power assist when I make a left turn, and occasionally a right turn, also. It started as a small inconvenience, but at this point, if I am not very careful when I make a left turn, the car would go strait instead of turning.
My 2008 Chrysler Sebring convertible stalls while driving. So far I have not been hit by a car following when my car engine stalls while driving in traffic but I have been lucky.
First two complaints have been recalled and serviced. Said recalls were for # 1 engine stalling and # 2 driver airbag under seat sensor illuminating on and off on dash. Even after the service was performed for the recalls, I still have engine stalling during stops and on deceleration the vehicle threatens to stall. I need to keep giving gas and on humid days that is indicative of possible rain the threat is more often. The second recall complaint that I am still experiencing is the air bag illuminator on dash for the drivers side goes on and off and the wires under the drivers seat are involved when driver seat moves front or back. Stalling is a safety issue that can cause personal injury or death to occupants in this car or nearby cars sharing the road. Also the air bag sensor problem keeps me in fear that the airbag will not deploy when necessary or will deploy accidentally on its own while the vehicle is in motion. I also have a complaint that the car when braking for a stop continued to rev causing me to use the emergency break and I had to shut off the car to stop the car totally. I have noticed that this issue is common with other peoples complaint and an inquiry would seem imminent for safety reasons. The dealership knowing the recalls have not secured the proper handling of my vehicle's safety wants to charge a diagnostic fee or a service fee when it is clear that the proper service was not rendered causing recall malfunctions to this date. For the two complaints that have recalls that I am inquiring about need to be addressed to the dealership ASAP for service and I would appreciate the outcome of this complaint in writing. As for the accelerator problem I would like to be kept abreast if a safety issue is mandated for the repair of that complaint. Thank you.
2008 Chrysler Sebring electrical system recall 08v152000 NHTSA: action number: n/a service bulletin number: 08v152000 report date: Apr 02, 2008component: electrical systempotential units affected: 180963manufacturer: Chrysler llc summary: Chrysler is recalling 180,963 my 2007-2008 Sebring and Dodge avenger vehicles equipped with a standard tire pressure monitoring system (tpms). Unused electrical connectors for the tpms may become corroded and could short circuit, which can cause a variety of conditions including engine no-start, dead battery, an inoperative cruise control or remote start system, and/or engine stalling. Consequence: engine stalling could cause a crash without warning. Note: myn car has the same symptons has described in this recall. Especially the stalling at lights on first acceleration. Then yo have to stop the car put it in park and restart and go. Tire pressure light comes on when I have these intermitnent problems. A accident waiting to happen and get rear-ended. Unfortunately my car VIN does not fall in this recall for some unexplanable reason. Can it be extended to cover my car. Thanks for your time!!!!!.
I recently purchased a 2002 Chrysler Sebring convertible from a private individual and after a few weeks had the car in the garage for a quick checkup. My mechanic said the engine with only 50,000 original miles looks like it is from a vehicle with 150,000 miles because of the sludge buildup. I am afraid to purchase a used engine (which is hard to find to begin with) because it may fail because of the problem with these engines from sludge and also the timing chain problem I have discovered after much research of the 2. 7l engine on the internet. Instead I have to pay over $5000. 00 to have a remanufactured engine installed in my used vehicle.

We own a 2001 Chrysler Sebring that had been well maintained by us for the two years that we owned it. While my daughter was driving back to school the engine seized in the middle lane of a very busy highway, leaving her stranded. We were told this incident was not uncommon in engine 2. 7l). So we followed through by contacting isg. (Chrysler) were only offering us a very small portion of the cost to replace the engine, so we are out a lot of money, besides the fact that they drugged their feet in this matter ,and our daughter has been without a car since 3/28. I just believe that therewas a definite engineering problem with this engine , from what all I saw. And Chrysler needed to take a little more responsibility! we will be having a jasper engine installed shortly.

I have had recurring problems with the engine stalling when the engine is hot. After driving for some time on an interstate, the car will stall when taken down to a lower speed- like getting off the exit ramp, or just braking to slow down for traffic. This has happened no less than 20 times in the last year. I have been fortunate to not have an accident- the car just stalls in the middle of traffic on the highway, exit ramp, or intersection. I have taken it to the dealer 3 times for the problem, and they say they cannot recreate the problem and just reset the engine timing,etc. It has happened as recently as this week. I have just read at least 24 similar complaints on this site- I had no idea it was common. The dealers should have a remedy for this by now. I am scared someone will plow into me. This is my fifth Sebring convertible and now I will never buy another one.
