      Does the horn sound in a pattern like an alarm is making it happen or you just mean that the horn starts honking with no pattern or timed interval? If it is no pattern then the horn pad needs to be replaced in the steering wheel.

      If you want to possibly get through this yourself with help from us it will require you to have the fault codes checked that are stored in the engine control module. I could guess and tell you to try this or that but I don't like to guess. Not very productive. Buy an inexpensive code reader (under $75) and attach it to the diagnostic connector under the driver side dash and read the codes. It takes like 3 minutes. This is what the professional mechanics do in a repair shop for an event like you have had. You just do not get to be a part of those behind the scenes details. Tell me in a repost what the codes are and I'll tell you what parts to buy to fix it without a repair shop intervention. Do not assume that if the engine service light is not on that there are no fault codes stored as many people think. The codes must be checked and if there are none, that also helps to know. Update me.

      If coolant is leaking in your reservoir it means you have a leakage/crack in your reservoir? Where is the leakage in your reservoir tank or the hose? You should repair or replace the leaking part to avoid overheating (to avoid low amount of coolant in your cooling system which can cause overheating).

      First of all try changing to a better grade oil. Could be oil pump intake screen dirty on cold starts not distributing oil to internal engine parts good or fast enough. If you do it yourself try a 10-40 synthetic for maximum lubrication efficiency. If this doesn't help at least you will know proper lubrication not the problem. Order on line a new oxygen sensor. This may solve Service engine light problem. Once this is done then you have taken serious steps to solving or solve problem. Also get a good fuel injector cleaner to add to gas tank. You may even have moisture in fuel. Ask parts store for these items. There inexpensive if you do it yourself.

      These are the symptoms of a bad head gasket. You are burning the coolant that leaked into the cylinders and after a minute it's been burned and passed through the exhaust.

      You try to the start the engine, and it starts fine. However, after a few minutes of running, the engine stops. When you try to start the engine again, it quickly starts and seems to run fine, but then it shuts down again. This type of problem usually happens without warning. Its probable causes could be; the fuel pump shuts down after start-up, a problem in the ECU and the ignition switch maybe defective.

      Under starter, above the bell housing bracket, on radiator side of engine. It will be a lot easier if you remove the starter.

      Is the check engine light appeared? If yes, I recommend that your vehicle take a scan service to simplify the diagnostic.

    Engine keeps stalling when stopping or slowing down
    before i change the spark plugs the car was working properly. i change them and found some oil on 5 out of the 6 plugs. put everything back together correctly and now it stalls when i stop or slow down.

      The number one cause of stalling on 2.5 Sebring is a bad distributor. It is standard procedure to check for stored fault codes that may be in the computer memory of the vehicle before replacing anything, even the distributor that I mentioned.
