Just me: I have a question for you. I have a 96 Chrysler Sebring Convertible, and had an oil change 2 months ago, then noticed oil leaking, I found I needed a new drain plug, had that installed about a month later. Now I go to check my oil, and it is showing nothing on the dip stick. I do not have any leaks but its showing dry even after adding oil. Any ideas? Thank you.
syyenergy7: I used a small pair of pliers on this to remove. It's not installed tight.
Jurek Pol: What type of wrench do you use to get the oil pressure sensor out. There is very little space even after removing oil filter? Secondly I am taking off oil pan due to leaks. It is major pain to get it out. Question: what is the best way to seal it back. I have a new paper gasket but maybe just some type of silicon gasket maker would be sufficient or better. Thanks,
syyenergy7: Sebring Convertible, Fix LED Console Light with EL Inverter http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ekKtSPcjXpI The shift indicator lights on the console typically will not work or the light will go out intermittently from time to time. This is a common problem on the Chrysler Sebring convertible The problem of the shift indicator light or console light not working is usually a simple solution that arises from a faulty or defective EL inverter. This video shows how to fix it.
try duck: You know your age when you use 1qt MMO at each oil change..Good Stuff But beware Chrysler/dodge will void warranty if ANY additives are used other then the Oils they approved. Maybe wanna wait till after your warranties expire just in case you do have engine internal issues during warranty periods. They will send oil off for testing prior to warranty engine internal breakdowns repairs to ensure approved fluids were used, then void if not...It is a awesome engine cleaner but the more additives you add, the more your diluting the oil so just get approved oil and keep additives down to minimum.Always use 1qtMMO and Mobil5000 and have yet to see less then 300k out of a vehicle but Mobil is not even a approved Chrysler oil either. Don't bother with synthetics either, most dealers use normal oil even if you pay for synthetic oil change..I never use fram as they restrict flow the most, not to mention poor filtering construction. I choose motorcraft / purolator / ACdelco because they have best flow/filtering. Never run past 3k-5k on oil changes EVER . I dont care if someone told ya to go 15k OLF's because you use royal purple or some other over priced scam oil, DON'T DO IT! No sense to have larger filter either IMO, Just change oil at 3k and save your money. If it has that much sludge/debris in your engine oil, you have serious issue that a larger oil filter isn't going to solve anyhow. These are not diesel engines at demand large filtering. Have yet to see a engine ran on synthetic oils get any more mileage use then one serviced with conventional oils!
nichole thomas: thank for this post. my 2005 oil light is going off when I'm at a light. Hope this helps...
syyenergy7: More than likely it is just the oil pressure switch and also needs the connection to the switch cleaned. It is a common problem. I had the problem years ago and fixed the switch & cleaned the connection and no problem now. 250,000 miles now. The oil light problem was at 169,000 miles. You should do a pressure check to make sure it is just the oil sensor only. Usually the sensor is the problem.
lisaannbutler: My oil light just started coming on last night. It only comes on when I brake though. When I accelerate it goes off again.
Please help me? :(
syyenergy7: I charge it at 4000 miles, while is actually far more often than necessary with synthetic oil.
Luke: When should synthetic oil be changed just wondering?
syyenergy7: I use synthetic oil. Yes Frams are generally crap. The hi-end Frams (more expensive ones) are good though. I agree on Purolator, Motorcraft & Wix. The magnet just sticks to the bottom of any oil filter on the outside.
douglas lee: Thanks for the video. Very well done. Glad to hear somebody seems to like the Mystery Oil. Questions: have you been running synthetic oil for a long time? or petroleum oil? Excellent tip about the larger filter, although I prefer Purolator or Motorcraft. My 35 year mech told me Fram's are crap. MAIN question: I did not understand the part about the magnet, and the video doesn't show it very well. Where does it mount? BETWEEN the filter and mount point? Where do you get one? Brand name? Thanks
orlandolife1954: Thanks for posting. My Convertible is having that minor problem. I just learned today about that switch. I hope this solves my proble. Mine is a 2004 model.
