Engine knocking

Asked by Aug 21, 2016 at 03:43 PM about the 2004 Chrysler Sebring Touring Convertible

Question type: General

So I recently came across a sebring and I loved the
car but I started to research the problemed areas
of the car and saw engine sludge and didn't like
what I saw anyways I texted the guy and asked if
there were problems with the car and he says that
the car makes a knocking sound for about 30
seconds then stops and runs fine, does this sound
like the beginning of engine sludge?

Run away as fast as you can. Please don't buy a Sebring.

It sounds like the car is very near the end of it's useful life. Most likely worn bearings in the engine. Not a cheap or easy fix!! Keep shopping!! HTH. -Jim
