Question about 1997 Chrysler Sebring
So the car runs normally, then just shuts down, you wait for the engine to cool down and it just starts again as nothing happened.
Have you checked the codes both with the engine hot but running and with the engine stopped? If not then this is the first thing you should do.
To me all this looks like the engine temp sensor is dead: when cold the mixture must be richer than normal for the engine to work normally.; as the engine heats up the ECM still thinks the engine stays cool so the mixture becomes richer and richer, up to the point the data from the O2 sensor can't force the ECM to compensate no more so the engine simply stops.
Replace the sensor.

This is generally caused by a problem with idle/choke/mixture control. On a fuel injected engine, the ECM/ECU may need to be replaced/reprogrammed.
Other possible causes could include:
-fouling spark plugs (replace them or at least clean them).
-fuel filter problem (replace it).
check the spark plugs and coil pack. If the spark plugs are not worn out and looks new then its time to check coil pack. The spark plug gets power to spark from coil pack.check the blockages in the fuel pump if the fuel pump looks proper then check the fuel filter above the fuel pump.Get the fuel pressure checked. If its less then its quite possible that fuel pump needs to be replaced and fuel filter is got clogged.

A great tool to have that can save you some money to read computer error codes and clear them after work has been done can be had for under $100 from Actron. This is what I have been using and its a life saver but it's also good to have the vehicles repair manual as well.
The computer on this car is OBDII like many other vehicles out there these days so you'll need a tool that can plug in and read the outlet located above the shin of your right leg under the dashboard or steering wheel. Here is a link to a bunch of their products on amazon Actron and other OBDII Computer diagnostic code reader tools.
