Some of the most common problems associated with the Chrysler Sebring are oil sludge, engine failure and an illuminated oil light, according to Car Complaints. These three problems are generally related to oil buildup, which ultimately starves the engine.
Oil sludge is a buildup that occurs when the oil level is lower or there is a mixture of water in it. The design of the Chrysler Sebring's engine causes this problem to frequently occur, according to Car Complaints. Oil sludge will lead the engine to experience poor oil pressure. If the problem goes unchecked, the engine will ultimately seize and have to be replaced.
