Please Help 2002 Stratus Coupe Dies While Driving

I had my battery replaced and the next day while on a road trip from Vegas to CA the car was running a little rough - shifting onto gears (it an automatic) my Check Engine light came on as well as the Brake and Oil lights they flashed from bright to dim several times then the air condition and my radio went out, shortly after (within 5min) my car died while driving 75 mph. The new battery was shot - replaced it and had the altenator checked and passed at 2 different auto parts stores. Within 5 minutes of driving it the car - with the new battery and altenator reinstalled, the car died 3 times all while coming to a stop, however I was able to restart it. Any ideas what's going on? I have about 88,000 miles on it and the spark plugs were replaced about 6 months ago along with a coil?

I would say to have your egr valve checked. Sometimes in these Dodge brands they will get clogged and the air can't flow right. One way you can check if this is happening while driving is to watch your rpms. If they drop a bit then come back up I would assume that is the cause, although I don't remember the radio dying any time his has happened.

2005 chrysler sebring loses power driving up hill & RPM is up high, Ive changed, spark plugs & air filter. dont know what to do.


Not sure I am following your story.
Are you saying the transmission is slipping and therefore the RPM is high even tho the road speed is not ?
Or is the transmission not upshifting to the next gear at a normal road speed ?
Is the check engine light on ?

Normally Shifting out of gear in motion wont damage much unless you revved the engine really high for an extended period. Shifting into park while in motion will make a ratcheting sound, but usually wont hurt anything. However the act of doing so may have tripped a fault in the ECU that makes the car think it needs to be in limp mode. It did just that and got you home albeit running roughly.

Have someone remove the NEGATIVE battery cable. leave it disconnected for a few minutes, then reconnect and jump start the car if the battery is too low. doing so should reset the ECU and restore normal operation. If drivable, proceed to a brand name parts store. they usually will reset your ECU codes for free. IF all is well this should fix the probelm. If something was indeed damaged, you wont likely be able to drive the car.

You may have gotten water into the transmission particularly the sensors and solenoid if it is an automatic. Check also the fluid if there are water contents. If they are you need to have it replaced.
