I actually purchased a Chrysler Sebring GTC convertible 03 with 73000 miles to a car dealer. After inspection and a drive around the neighboorhood, I felt the car was in really good condition and decided to buy it. I was wrong.
After few minutes of drive, I felt like the car was misfiring at idle or at a stop. Besides, when the engine seemed to be warm, the oil light came up and was blinking at the same time.
I parked the car in my garage for the night, when I came back in the morning there was a puddle of coolant under the car. I brought it to a good mechanic that I know who fixed the coolant leaking by changing the faulty part, and change the oil pressure sensor.
The car still has the misfire problem and the oil light still comes up even if it comes later (and the engine light this time too).
I've been heard that 2.7l DOHC V6 engines in the sebring were subject to oil sludge.
Could it be the reason of both problems? If there is oil sludge, could it be due to the coolant leaking?
Thanks for your answer,
have the same problem?
