ENGINE AND ENGINE COOLING: ENGINE

9/14/2005 - ORLANDO, FL
I HAVE HAD RECURRING PROBLEMS WITH THE ENGINE STALLING WHEN THE ENGINE IS HOT. AFTER DRIVING FOR SOME TIME ON AN INTERSTATE, THE CAR WILL STALL WHEN TAKEN DOWN TO A LOWER SPEED- LIKE GETTING OFF THE EXIT RAMP, OR JUST BRAKING TO SLOW DOWN FOR TRAFFIC. THIS HAS HAPPENED NO LESS THAN 20 TIMES IN THE LAST YEAR. I HAVE BEEN FORTUNATE TO NOT HAVE AN ACCIDENT- THE CAR JUST STALLS IN THE MIDDLE OF TRAFFIC ON THE HIGHWAY, EXIT RAMP, OR INTERSECTION. I HAVE TAKEN IT TO THE DEALER 3 TIMES FOR THE PROBLEM, AND THEY SAY THEY CANNOT RECREATE THE PROBLEM AND JUST RESET THE ENGINE TIMING,ETC. IT HAS HAPPENED AS RECENTLY AS THIS WEEK. I HAVE JUST READ AT LEAST 24 SIMILAR COMPLAINTS ON THIS SITE- I HAD NO IDEA IT WAS COMMON. THE DEALERS SHOULD HAVE A REMEDY FOR THIS BY NOW. I AM SCARED SOMEONE WILL PLOW INTO ME. THIS IS MY FIFTH SEBRING CONVERTIBLE AND NOW I WILL NEVER BUY ANOTHER ONE.
