Car MD detected code P0507...05 sebring convertible base…

Customer Question
Car MD detected code...

Car MD detected code P0507...05 sebring convertible base model 2.4l DOHC. Noticed bogged down acceleration on hiways and hills. Changed fuel pump 4 days ago, little change! 2 days ago changed air filter, immediate higher idle speed 750 rpm to 1250 rpm. Thats when engine light came on...still very little power

Mechanic's Assistant: Has your vehicle stalled? Has anyone run a diagnostic test to pull the trouble code?

Hasn't stalled yet. No diagnostics to this point

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

If I can do it myself, I will

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

The high idle speed is concern and was hoping extreme sluggishness was due to 02 sensors, but afraid it could be a catalytic converter

Have you checked for a plug exhaust?

Would you like a test to help check for plugged exhaust?

Ask Your Own Chrysler Question
Customer reply replied 8 months ago
I feel the exhaust, but is there more I should be checking?
Chrysler Mechanic: Amedee, Chrysler Technician replied 8 months ago

YES there is. They make a back pressure tester to check for plugged exhaust.

I can get one and check it out this saturday, then get back with you. Is there anything in specific that I should look for, ie; pressure level etc
Chrysler Mechanic: Amedee, Chrysler Technician replied 8 months ago

YES, it should read less than 1.5 psi at 2000 rpm.

What Customers are Saying:

I was skeptical at first but thought I'd give it a try. I was pleasantly surprised. Your site actually is a quality service that I would recommend to others in a heartbeat.

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.

TOM WHITTAKERUSA
