Question about 1995 Chrysler Sebring
I've had this '95 Sebring LXi for four years now, and I've had problems with it every year. I usually get it fixed, but for some reason, I can't figure out what the problem is with my car this time.
The car doesn't start when it's cold outside if it's been sitting for any great length of time. I replaced the battery in May of this year. It ran fine for about 5 months, and since it's been cold, it won't start. Every time I jump the car, it starts up just fine. I've found that when I press the door lock buttons, they don't work, and there's a clicking noise in the dash. I don't know if the two problems are connected or if they are seperate. After I jump the car, I drive it for nearly an hour before I shut it off, so there should be plenty of charge in the battery when I leave it. I know that by physics, batteries lose a significant amount of their charge due to cold weather, but this is excessive. There aren't any lights on in the car that I'm aware of after I shut the car off. Oh, and when I use the other buttons in the car, they all work. It's just the locks that don't work. They are manual, for practical purposes.
Also, I have a "check engine" light appear if I drive the car between 55 and 60 miles per hour for more than a minute or so. I've had one of the O2 sensors replaced, and I've considered having the other replaced, but I don't know if it will help the problem. After I shut the car off, the light goes off, and then only comes back on if I get to that speed again. It's not affecting the driving of the car, but I think it's causing the car to run rich.
Can anyone help? If you need more info, please let me know.

Your problem sounds like it may be a Mass Air Flow sensor, when it does run bad disconnect the sensor, if the engine starts running ok the sensor is bad, this would be the most common reason for your problem and why it is only intermittent. As far as the overheat do you have a coolant leak?

there are four 18mm bolts on the opposite side of dust plate.once u remove thoe bolts,you'll have to either use a slide hammer, or the old fashion way a big hammer and smack it side to side.the whole hub and wheel bearing assembly will come out.The dust sheild is in between the hub and axel once it comes apart u will understand.

Anything is possible, The correct (and easy) way to find out is to FULLY charge your battery. Check charging voltage at ~ 2000 rpm, you should have 13,8 to 14.8 volts at the battery, if not, investigate why not. (you would not get a high enough voltage reading with a discharded battery).
Try disconnecting the negative cable (car off first!!!!!! or kill diodes)at night and see if you can retain a charge. measure voltage on the battery at night and again in the morning, before hooking back up... any lower voltage is a bad mark against the battery. If battery retains a charge, test for voltage draws:hook a volt meter in series with the negative terinal, and the battery cable. more than .2 volts may be too much draw. Pull fuses and see if the issue stops. Most sommon issue is diodes in the alternator. One or more fail and cause battery drain.
Batterys that go totally dead, or have water level go lower than the plates often do not recover.
