Question about 1998 Chrysler Cirrus

Open Question

I have a '98 2.5L V6 Cirrus. One night the engine was running just fine and I stopped at a gas station ran inside came back out and as soon as I started it it had trouble getting RPM's no matter how hard I pushed the gas pedal. I pulled over and stopped it then tried to start it again and it wouldn't. Now every time I try to start it, it will turn over but not fully start. It just sits there and tries to crank up.

SOURCE: Engine is stalling

I had a car do the same thing. It turned out it was the PCM. Also if that does'nt work try replacing the Crank sensor.

SOURCE: Chrysler Pacifica will not start.

Most probably starter problems. It can be not starter itself some vires coming to it are loose. To locate the starter follow heavy wires coming from battery. This how starter looks like,16400045/shopping/partTypeResultSet.htm
Check the wires coming to it. Also check the fuse, it might be bad starter relay fuse too.
Please kindly let me know it the information was usefull for you or you still need more info
Good Luck

SOURCE: need to see owners manual

There is a starter fuse in the black fuse box under the hood. It will have the label of each on it. If you replace the fuse, and it blows again, then the starter is bad.

Right area. If it is a 2.4L, replace them. If it is a 2.5L, you need a distributor most likely.

Received bad gas car is spuddering when I drive, what can I do?

The first thing you should have done was go back to the gas station and complained. If you can prove you bought the gas there, the station is on the hook for the cost of repairs. They have insurance to cover it. Then you take it to a shop to get it fixed.
You may have to change the filter screen in the tank since there is no external fuel filter on the car. And that injector may have to be replaced too.

I start the car and it runs fine but in 5 sec it dies, the car ran just fine on friday night and now tuesday it has this symptom. It was also very cold this weekend

It is possible that you have some water in your fuel. If so, it can freeze if the weather is cold enough and prevent fuel from getting to your engine. If you can somehow warm the car up a bit, you can put some methyl or even better isopropyl alcohol in the fuel and run it for a while. Note that if it IS ice, it will go away as soon as the weather warms up enough. But it is a good idea to run some methyl or isopropyl alcohol, even if you do get it started when the weather warms up, so it doesn't happen again. It is very unlikely to get water in your fuel at a gas station. It happens due to condensation in the gas tank if you don't fill it up every time you get gas. If you keep it fairly low all the time, it will take a lot of moisture from the air. The methyl or isopropyl alcohol will blend with the water and allow it to burn off.

When engine is warmed up the car begins hesitating

I really think it's the TPS, (throttle positioning sensor) on the throttle body. When this sensor is defective or out of position the vehicle will idle like that and even stall. If you haven't had it scanned, you should do so, that will probably tell you the problem.
