Customer Question
I have a 2004...

I have a 2004 sebring convertible with a 2.7L engine. I replaced the thermostat and the Coolant air bleeder top half with Mopar parts because it was leaking and over heating. It is still leaking from the bleeder housing and the heat only blows hot in the cabin while the car is moving.

Mechanic's Assistant: Thanks. Can you give me any more details about your issue?

My name is ***** ***** forgot that part :-)

Hello and welcome to just answer. Where on the housing is it leaking? Where is fits into the pipe or where it bolts to the plenum?

It appears to be coming out the valve.

Could it be a bad heater core?
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
I actually had to add more coolant to the tank today after I thought it was full last night when it was finished.
Chrysler Mechanic: Chris, Technician replied 2 years ago

If it is coming out of the valve, and the valve is screwed down, then you got a defective one and will need to take it back and get another one. If the heat works when the car is moving, then it is probably not a heater core. Most likely some air is still in the system. Try rechecking and filling the coolant tank again and then see if the heat starts working. If that bleeder valve still leaks, then get another housing. Let me know how it goes,

I AM VERY GLAD THAT I TOOK A CHANCE ON YOUR PROBLEM SOLVING SKILLS. I WAS SUCCESSFUL IN REPLACING THE FUEL PUMP. MY TRUCK RUNS LIKE A CLOCK. IT RUNS LIKE THE DAY I BOUGHT IT. NO LUNGING FORWARD, THE TURBO REACTS THE SECOND I STOMP ON THE GAS, AND IT HAS A LOT MORE POWER AND EVEN SOUNDS BETTER TO ME. IT SAVED ABOUT $500.00 BY DOING THE WORK MYSELF. I GIVE YOU ALL THE CREDIT FOR YOUR DIAGNOSING THE PROBLEM, JUST FROM THE SYMPTONS I GAVE YOU OVER THE e MAIL. I WILL USE YOUR WEB SITE AGAIN AND REFER MY FRIENDS. THANKS SO MUCH FOR THE HELP.
