Is there a way to prevent build up of oil sludge in Chrysler Sebring 2.7L V6 causing the engine to seize?

#2

Yes, there is. Use synthetic oil and replace it at the interval specified in your owner’s manual.

What year is your Sebring?

#3

I agree.

KEY being proper intervals. as stated above.

#4

No modern oil should be related to sludge buildup. If you have sludge buildup, it could be due to a poorly-sealing head gasket or some other internal problem.

#5

Listen To Your Engine Regularly
Depending on the model year, maintenance habits, and miles, some of these engines also have had issues involving timing chains/chain guides. Should you hear additional engine sounds, get it checked out without too much delay.

#6

Keep Changing The Oil, Regularly

It’s a shame these engines had problems. They run very smoothly and quietly and deliver very good fuel economy. You will probably get a lot of miles out of it with proper care. Improper care reacts poorly with these motors.

How is you oil consumption? What year is it?
