    I was driving along and tried to accelerate and my car just died. My dad got a troubleshooting code from the car that said PO200 which is an Injector Circuit Malfunction. This is possibly the cause of the problem.

This sounds like either the fuel pump has failed or the fuel filter is plugged, another thing that can cause this is a plugged catalytic converter, i doubt the issue is the fuel pump relay.

5 speed manual transmission wont shif gears while running


You probably have air in the system. You need to bleed the air out of the system so that it will disengage your clutch. The air in the system is compressing and, therefore, the slave cylinder can't reach the full extension.

Car want crank over


This is Caused by the Fuel Pump. If you remove the Fuel Pump relay and it will try to Crank, You have a Bad Fuel Pump. I do Believe that the Fuel Pump is located inside the Fuel Tank on the Sunfire. Not an easy Repair But, Necessary
