Choked and died while idling ,i try to start it again wouldnt start ,could itbe a timing belt ??

More likely it is a fuel problem. but could be a spark problem (timing belt has to do with spark) or least likely it could be the air intake. To check if you have the proper spark (coming due to a good timing belt) pull the number one spark plug and use a gapping tool (it's cheap tool but works good) to check the spark plug. If the spark plug has the correct gap then turn the key to watch if it sparks if it does't spark try a new plug if that doesn't spark you may need a timing belt. To check if it is the timing belt you do not really need to check the gap of the plug but if you already have the plug out and it is not the timing belt this information could be very useful. With more info I could probably narrow it down for you, post back if you like.

Runs good cold,runs bad when it warms up

misfire is bad timing
check cam time.
check spark timing.
bad timing causes backfiring..

did you put the spark wires back like you found them or better the correct firing order? if not it backfires.
last is lean backfire.

99 sebring xli stoppd running while driving and wont start

Three things you should check for.

Spark, fuel pressure, and timing belt.

Spark is easy enough. Pull a plug wires and using a spark tester see if there is spark.

fuel pressure will require a fuel gauge. You can try a couple of shots of carb spray in the throttle body to see if the car starts. If it does than we know we have spark and this is a fuel issue.

Timing belt, AN ENGINE SIZE WOULD HELP, but basically you should be able to remove a couple of bolts from the top of the timing cover and see if the belt is turning. A broken timing belt will usually cause the engine to sound like it is turning over faster than normal.

Let me know what you find with the above and I'll see what I can do to help.

Don't forget to post an engine size as well.

What caused splattering oil leaks.

Tow guy probably correct
If it has a chain and you have not been paying attention to regular services, it is possible for a badly worn chain to wear through the timing cover and let oil escape
The mechanic you took it to was probably not properly qualified as he should have seen the oil spray , found the problem and gave you a report on what he found

Well i just replaced my head gasket in my 1999 mitsubishi galant 4cylinder and made sure my timing was correct and starts up right away but then suddenly stops so im beat i dont know wat to do next? should...

What you describe is very indicative of timing being off. Its not spark plugs.

Double check your timing and balance belt set up. Its possible to get the timing off enough so the engine starts then the ECU "realizes" that the sensor inputs are very wrong and shuts off the engine.

Is the hydraulic belt tensioner locked down BEFORE you install it? This is required (a large vise or press is required to do this). Once fitted and the tensioner bearing is locked, the lock pin is removed.

Wont start does turn over has fuel pressure and

I don't know what year, engine etc... but I can offer an idea or two for some basics:
1. Make sure your firing order is correct.
2. Check your timing.
(If you think good, make sure your not 180 out.. in case you pulled the distributor earlier)
3. Check compression. (I've had vavles stick before)
Hope some of this helps... Good luck
