Customer Question
I have an 04...

I have an 04 Chrysler Sebring 2.7 V6. I replaced the radiator hoses a couple months back. Now it is going through antifreeze like crazy and there is steam coming from the vicinity of the coolant reservoir

Mechanic's Assistant: Has the car been overheating? Have you noticed any leaks?

Haven't noticed any leaks, it has been overheating

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your Sebring yourself? What have you tried so far?

Nothing yet, though I did just buy a new thermostat. Yes I am doing the worl myself

Hi, my name is*****'d go ahead and replace the thermostat and see if that cures the overheating. If you still have trouble you may have a more serious problem with a head gasket failure. Also make sure that the radiator cooling fan is coming on when it gets hot. A new thermostat might just solve the problem.

Let me know if you have any questions.

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.
