If you turn on the key, and hear the sound of the pump for a few sec then stop before turning the key to ignition position, then fuel pump is still working. However, you need some one hear the pump running while you starting the car. The pump is located below the rear seat on passenger side. If no sound heard while you start then there is a problem with the Fuel relay switch behind the battery and firewall. If there is sound from the pump then the car needs to have fuel delivery rate checked and fuel filter for possible replacement.

My 2004 sebring stalls and will not crank for hours it stalls while driveing or setting still


If it usually starts when cold, but when fails hot will not start until totally cold, suspect bad coil, ignition module or other electronic sensor on engine such as crank or cam sensor. Testing individual parts often is difficult, because part only fails when hot.

Engine stalls, after hour or so engine starts again


It may be gas or ignition related. Try to determine which, when it stalls and won't start. With key on, you should hear the fuel pump turn on for about 2 seconds to pressurize the lines and fuel rail on the engine. If you don't hear the pump, and have no pressure in the fuel rail with key on, it is probably a bad pump.
If the pump is working, check for a strong blue spark on a spark plug wire after it stalls. If no spark on any of the plug wires, suspect the crankshaft position sensor or the ignition control module. Either one can cause those symptoms- failing after it gets warm or hot.

CRANKING NOT STARTING


Sounds like either the fuel filter or the catalytic converter. You will need to check the back pressure of the exahust and the fuel pressure after it fails. This I say because you did not mention any trouble codes.(check engine light on or flashing)

2002 vue v6...starts and runs well however when I stop , shut off the engine, then try to start after half hour , it wont start


Lookfor a light on the dash that says SECURITY or ANTITHEFT. If you see this light, that is a sign of a failed or failing antitheft system, which will disable your vehicle. This link explains

1996 oldsmobile 88 will start but dies out and when trying to start again it will not start only crank an hour later it will start fine and die out after half hour and will not start again


This sounds very much like a faulty crankshaft sensor as these are typical symptoms of an intermittent sensor fault that fails when the engine gets hot causing the engine to stall - but works again when the engine cools down.

You may or may not also have an engine check light showing before the engine stalls.

You can have the car scanned for error codes - Autozone will do this for free but if your car is not OBD II compliant they may or may not have the earlier OBD I reader.

You can check the crank sensor using an oscilloscope but this is a bit involved and you will need to have the equipment and knowhow. To be honest I would just change the sensor out as it is not that expensive and is the prime suspect in my view from what you describe.

Hope this helps. Please do take a minute to leave a vote for the solution.
