Question about 1998 Chrysler Sebring

1 Answer

Won't start under moist conditions

My 2000 GMC Sierra 4.3 litre won't start after sitting for 8 hours and it has rained. I've had all the electrical system checked and replaced the crankshaft sensor. To no avail, I need some help. Any suggestions? I own a 1998 Chrysler Sebring Convertible limited edition V6 2.5L and when it has rained over night or my car is parked outside and it is moist or foggy. It does not want to start, and when it does start i have to hold down the gas for about two mins otherwise it will stall out. Anybody know whats going on here?

If i understand you right the truck has been sitting for two years.If it has been sitting that long without running or moving the gas has turned to varnish...I suggest that you drain and refill the fuel tank,and replace the fuel filter located on/in the frame rail on drivers side.

Try some injector cleaner in order to see if the lean condition improves. Lean conditions can sometimes be caused by o2 sensors or other sensors that are not within specifications.
