Hello! I brought my 2000 Sebring JXi to a mechanic. He replaced the fuel pump, and said he could get it to start, but it would shut off after a few seconds.
He's spent 'all afternoon' ruling everything else out, and believes the brand new fuel pump I bought from O'Riley's is defective.
He said it's having trouble "pumping fuel to the front". He said he ruled out fuses, relays, etc. And has fired up the engine some other way and it starts fine.
I'm concerned b/c he also said the car doesn't have a distributor, which I see on forums is a common problem.
First, does my 2000 Sebring Convertible have a distributor?
What is the likelihood the brand new fuel pump is defective?
I highly appreciate your help.
have the same problem?
