I'm having issues with my 1999 Chrysler Sebring jxi

Customer Question
Good morning I'm having...

Good morning I'm having issues with my 1999 Chrysler Sebring jxi convertible when I started up in the mornings it is missing and not running well seems to be running rich

Mechanic's Assistant: Have you checked the battery, particularly the terminal connections? Are they corroded?

Yes I've checked all the electrical connections everything is top-notch I have replace fuel injectors distributor and wires plugs and the car is still running very rough in the morning but once the car gets to temperature it runs normally

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

I am trying to but I need to figure out if it is some kind of sensor because the problem only occurs in the morning I don't know what's going on

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

Pearl that's pretty much it I'm just trying to get an answer I've had it checked out with scanners and no one can seem to figure it out

I have I've also replaced the coolant sensor the fuel injectors the distributor and wires this is what happens when you go to crank it up in the morning it runs like the choke is on the phone it I know it's fuel injected I know it doesn't have a fuel pump or carburetor I don't know what's going on do you think it could be the throttle position sensor
Customer reply replied 7 months ago
There's no codes coming up either
Chrysler Mechanic: sprinkles08, ASE Certified Technician replied 7 months ago

Does it run ok initially and then go through a period where it runs poorly, then runs ok once warm?

Customer reply replied 7 months ago
Once it reaches normal operating temperature I have no more problems even if I cut it off let it set and crank it back up it's fine but sitting overnight into the morning when I first Crank It Up until it reaches operating temperature it runs like crap like it's running rich

Unplug the upstream oxygen sensor, disconnect the battery to clear the adaptives, and see if the problem is present without the upstream sensor's input.

StanSayre, PA

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.
