Thanks so much for you input to the Chrysler Sebring not heating.

Next question is- is it difficult to get to the thermostat on the Sebring? I know on my experience with foreign cars (Mercedes and Mazdas) it has bee a snap.

Thanks.

Chuck

What engine do you have? There are 4 different engines used in this vehicle. Look at your VIN, count from left to right. I need the 8th digit of the 17-digit number. It will be either X, G, U or H.

I was given this car and it has no heat. I changed the thermostate, flused all the rust out of the cooling system, R&R and cleaned the resev. There was still not heat. The system was so dirty, I thought the heater core may have been restricted. So I replaced the heater core. Still have no heat. The heater doors are operating properly. It almost seems like there is air in the system. Any suggestions

Hello,

The heater in our '01 Chrysler Sebring recently stopped working. It began a few days back the heater ran cold whenever the car sat still. (Stop light, parked, etc. W/engine running.) However, it would blow warm/hot while it was moving.
What could the problem be?
(I may be wrong about the engine size, and wheel drive type. I'm fairly sure it's 4 cyl and 2-wheel drive.)

Hi:

It sounds like you are low on coolant. Check it and let me know what you find. Also, is the engine running at normal operating temp?

I am seeing the same thing on my sebring.I've heard the water pumps break inside and the shaft spins, but not the impeller. Mine is"chirping" while running and overheats too. Does this sound familiar?

I replaced the thermostat in my 1997 Chrysler Sebring convertible. It had a warm weather thermostat is it. I put a winter thermostat is it. Now I get cool air when I turn the heat on. I can feel a little warmth, but it is very little.
I added antifreeze after I was finished to the holding tank and where the radiator cap sits. I have a 6 month old son and very little money what should I do? Should I drain the fluid and start over with the radiator fluid. The heater hoses are still warm so I don't think it's the Heater Core.

What do you mean by winter weather thermostat? Thermostat is rated by the operating temperature, what is yours?

First, is the engine warming up to the normal operating temp? If it is, make sure the coolant is full. Also, with the engine warm, the heater on high, check to see if both heater core hoses are hot.

Let me know what you find.

NOTE: Never open the radiator when the engine is hot. Allow it to cool off first.
