Chrysler Repair/'08 Sebring: falters/stalls at idle

I also have the same car with the same problem. No code shows up when put on a computer. I've had the idler plate cleaned the first time and it seemed to help for months then started stahling once in awhile, 3 times in one day once. I had the idler plate cleaned again but after reading about the EGR valve, I just had it replaced for $235 and the car is running great now! Roland helped me once before with an older Chrysler with a on board computer problem and was right on with the answer as he was with this problem.

I have the same problem with my 2008 Chrysler Sebring touring and it started about a year or so ago. I replaced the erg valve, had the car tuned up, had the idle plate cleaned with every oil change and it still happens when I stop at a light the car just stahls but noticed it mostly does it when it's raining out. I only happens once in a while and no code.

No code, no sense with taking it to a shop.
