dont think it is a fuel issure sounds like a MASS AIR PROBLEM if a car is stalling while driving and will not starts but cranks its one of two things a fuel prob. or an air problem i would first check your idle air valve as well *** your tps sensor if this is happening while you drive the vehicle it sounds like at some point there is either too much air or fuel in chambes causeing missfire inturn shutting down the engine reason for not starting again is simple if its too much fiel its flooded and if it's not enough air your engine cant start if it starts after 3 hours sounds like enough time for all fumes to have subsided in chamber and again allowing for a clean start up check tps and idle air valve as well as mass air flow

SOURCE: i have a 1998 chrysler sebring..do i need a fuel pump ? won't start up right away until i give it gas usually in mornings, sometimes after making complete stops car cuts off after pushing back on gas?

This is not the fuel pump. It sounds like the computer is not setting the proper fuel mixture.

SOURCE: Spark plug location on sebring convertible

Depending on the tightness of the socket fit and the engine, carefully pull the spark plug out of the bore

SOURCE: 1998 Sebring Convertible heater is blowing cold

after engine is warmed up , feel the hoses that go to and come from the heater. if they are not hot , this indicates that coolant is not flowing through the heater core. Could be that the core is all plugged up , ore some cars have a valve that opens or closes the flow. If the hoses are hot , that the problem is that the ducts in the dash that send air to and from the heater plenum are not opening up correctly. They usually work on a vacuum motor.
If you are not sure which are the heater hoses add that to your post , and I will track down the location for your vehicle. The heater hoses are usually about 1 inch in diameter.

Ldv maxus,difficult to start, changed glows,no better, a lot worse in very cold weather -6. any suggestions


Battery condition? I used to "cycle" the glow system two or three times before cranking. In other words when glow finishes, turn key off then start the glow cycle again. Get a crankcase or block heater. To warm up or "keep" warm. Glow almost never fails.
But it's possible the Glow timer or connections are going.
There are "Cetane" improvers that may improve cold starting. Quality of fuel you are getting? Last time Filter was changed? Really cold? and stuck. Only for emergency, not recommended. Ether cold start spray can. Spray into the air intake. You may need to open Air filter passage to spray. I knew a farmer who had an automatic ether system. Blue up the engine from over speed. So that is why you need to be careful!

I have 1998 saturn sl 2 car starts after 5 or 6


Spray ether into the air intake and see if it still takes 5 or 6 cranks...if it starts immediately, it is fuel related, perhaps fuel presure regulator is bad. If the ether doesn't change anything...it is most likely a cam sensor...good luck!

Won't start.


need to ask some questions. does it have spark at the plugs? how many miles on it? does the engine crank with different sound than normal? if it has spark, spray couple good blasts of ether inside air snorkel and see if it fires. has the timing belt been serviced? has the engine lite been on?

Stop running while driving and will not start again. I am geting two code PO766 and PO750


i believe those 2 are transmission codes and not sure if can relate to your current problem. does it have spark? fuel pressure? a faulty fuel pump may not store a code. maybe use ether in air snorkel to see if starts then
