How can keep my 04 Sebring cool?

Asked by Apr 05, 2017 at 06:48 PM about the 2004 Chrysler Sebring Touring Convertible

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I have a 2004 Chrysler Sebring which has some type of cooling issue I
cannot figure out. I have noticed that after driving for awile when I come to
a stop the cars temp will  go up and the car obviously is hot, it can idle
rough during the the time I am stopped and also I noticed the check oil light
slightly flickers during this time. When I turn on the A/C I can hear the fans
kick on but not unless A/C is on. I have replaced the temp sensor on top of
the engine and I thought it resolved the issue by keeping the temp at more
constant temp. but again today 86 degrees out and I stopped at a stop light
and noticed the temp had risen and the oil light was flickering. All fluids are
filled no check engine light no other issues.

Oil light on means low oil pressure. Either from a low oil level, or the oil pump is faulty. It could also be a faulty oil pressure sensor issue to. The cooling issue could be related or not. But if the oil level is too low, the engine will heat up fast. Check the oil level and top off as required. Then check the level of the coolant. Is it low? Are any fluids mixing, such as coolant in the oil?
