2000 sebring 2.5 stalls out and overheats


Have the fault codes read. Replace faulty items. Use only genuine items as non-genuine replacement are not always compatible with the OEM fitted CPU units. The engine light is telling you that the cpu has found a fault ( probably overheating) from a radiator fan not coming on. The stalling could be the cpu going into protect mode and stopping the engine

My gmc 4.3 stalls when warm and wont start without ether. then it runs fine


I had the exact problem with my 1993 chevy c1500. I found that the IAC was sticking so the engine would die at idle after warming up and the ignition module was pulsing the ECM intermittently after the engine warmed up so the fuel pump wasn't being turned on after the engine died....I replaced the ignition module and the IAC valve and all is good. I don't know if testing the ignition module reveals that it isn't sending pulses to the ECM.

Sputtering and stalling while driving and then just dies.


additive? for what reason, for stalling? or just for fun added.
you didnt say.?????
if it was for bad running, did you read the container, ?
and add the correct amount on a full tank of fuel, if not , then you may have added too much, some additives are very bad,
next time use Techron fuel additive, (if you feel compelled)
if the car runs bad no fresh fuel, and all 4 sparks are fouled.
no additive is best. fouled sparks are from other reasons.
50 reasons. and not one is cured by magic in a bottle.
I run Chevron fuel in my car, so adding more benzene is of no help
ever.
you said plugs, that to me means, (????)_all 4 are fouled.
4 plugs changed, where they spec type spark plugs, J plugs.
and were the gapped to Geo Storm spec.
if new plugs foul? that means (all 4?) means its running rich.
top reason for rich are:
1: thermostat missing or stuck open (engine never reaches normal temp)
2: Sensors reading wrong,
The Check engine lamp, what does it do.?
Is CEL light glowing key on,. then out after starting, (no? then pull the DTC codes and read the problem)
too high fuel pressure, ask your mech to measure that. or DIY.
ECU stuck in limphome mode. check DTC codes for reason.
Dead , bad or weak sensors.
leaking injectors
Ask any ASE mechanic, to just diagnose the problem.
then you have your answer. but many shops never seen a GEO ever
and have no documentation. on these.
how ever alldata dot com has it.

I have a 93 Geo Tracker with 200000 miles on it. it stalled out in my driveway. we cahnged the fuel pump and the fuel filter. its getting gas but has no spark. Where do we start


4 possibilities 1 crank sensor, 2 ignition control module, 3 ECM, coil/ coilpack. Check codes first this will point you towards the right direction.
If there are no codes then go to the coil/ coilpack

Geo metro 1993 battery dies


most likely a light is staying on somewhere. Remove the light in your glove box, as the most likely culprit and see if the battery is good.
