Question about 1990 Oldsmobile Ninety Eight
I have a 2001 Chrysler Sebring. We start the engine fine, but after a few minutes of running the engine or driving, the engine shuts off. We can start the engine immediately and the same thing happens. The car has plenty of gas (and never ran out), the radio, wipers, etc. stay on. We just bought a brand new battery. There was some corrosion with the battery connector, so we replaced it. Any suggestions?
Is the check engine light on, have it checked for codes and you might get a clue

ok heres the simple version its alot of work
remove hood put someplace safe
disconnect all wireing and mark off with masking tape and marker
****** you need car lift ******
remove all plastic part molding from engine
find the engine hoist holes for chain to hook to
this is a unibodi design so the whole front chassis drops down
unbolt the chassis make sure to have the chasis blocked and stable
lift car while chasis stays on floor engine tranny and every thing inside hood comes down on the unibody this is how you remove an engine from a sebring
or you take to the dealer spend the doe cause you got a nice car and have it done right

It could be the inertia switch has malfunctioned. Try that first, it is cheaper. The inertia switch is basically a tool to keep your car safe in case of an accident. I am not sure where yours it. In my truck it is below the glove box, in my old car it was in the trunk. Try pressing it once and see if it starts, or hold it down and have someone start it. If that doesn't work, it could be the fuel pump is bad. Take it to a trustworthy mechanic, not the dealership or Pep Boys/Big O. The big companies just want to take all your money, trustworthy mechanics want repeat business, I have found.

It's low on refrigerant ( probably uses R-134a) available at WalMart. Low refrigerant pressure switch deactivates A/C compressor for safety reasons.

Search for DORMAN Part # 902302.
Be warned that you need to remove the intake manifold to get at the two inboard mounting bolts to replace this part. It's pretty involved and there's a specific torque pattern to remove and reinstall the manifold bolts.

Also check manifold vacuum at idle the best you can hold an idle. I have run into timing belt being one tooth off and engine still ran fine. But the vacuum was low that's how I could tell the belt was a tooth off.
