SOURCE: 1992 Chrysler LeBaron 3.0 L.

the owner probably rerouted the fuel line because like my 92 chrysler lebaron v6 3.0 the fuel lines keep seeming to come off and the clamps always break. I have replaced the clamps 5 times in a month and replaced filters 2 times in 2 months. The only thing i could think of is that your fuel is being cut off possibly because there is no filter to clean all the junk out. Try putting a fuel filter on and see if that will work

Check you injector seals,you may be losing pressure in the fuel lines

SOURCE: 95 chrysler starts, runs for 5 seconds and shut off. Gauges don't work

As far as the running and shutting down you might try checking the EGR valve. however, this sounds like an electrical issue... a really weird one. You'll probably have to take it to a local shop that does well with electrical problems.

When you changed the fuel pump i presume that you put fresh gas in it ?. buy a couple bottles of gas line antifreeze (it soaks up water)... change the fuel filter as it is likely gumned up with fuel. after you have done this keep up with the pouring fuel in or get a can of "hard start" and be very careful with using it. Eventually it will run on it's own. I would also suggest getting a can of combustion chamber cleaner. nasty stuff but it will clean out the motor and should unstick any valves that are not closing properly. be very certain you use that outside as it does create alot of smoke. I would also presume as it has been sitting that long that you have drained and replaced the oil as well as the filter.
For a vehicle that has sat that long there will be a lot of condensation issues.

2002 vue v6...starts and runs well however when I stop , shut off the engine, then try to start after half hour , it wont start

Lookfor a light on the dash that says SECURITY or ANTITHEFT. If you see this light, that is a sign of a failed or failing antitheft system, which will disable your vehicle. This link explains

How does the fan operates, does it starts and stop. Car shuts down, red light come near milage guage, have to let car cool down and start again. Can fan cause this problem? Pontiac Gran Am 1998.

the cooling fan should come on about 105-107C and shut off about 95-97C
does the car overheat just sitting running not moving
but if the car overheats on the highway then it's not the fan
check the fan operation run the car till the gauge is over half and watch the fan
if the fan woks then check coolant level if that's ok then try a thermostat

95 f150 will turn over but not start. If it sits

Sounds like fuel pump or fuel pump relay but most likely pump. If the pump get too hot after running, the pump will not build up enough pressure to start but after sitting, it will cool off enough to build up the proper fuel pressure.

Another thing to check is the ignition module for the distributer. They are known to heat soak also however you typiocally get a cut out or miss feel when those have issues.
