I have a 2008 Chrysler sebring convertible, for the past 4 days the car has been having trouble starting. Just Friday, I left the car in park running for about 2 minutes, came out and the car had die

sounds like a fuel pump . next time the car shuts off on you have someone turn the key just to the on position (not to start the car) and you listen back by the gas tank for a humming noise . if you do not here this it is most likely your fuel pump . if you do here it humming I would change your fuel filter .

Changed the fuel filter in a 92 saab 2.3 turbo. turns over but will not start. it ran chuggy before that a would die after about a minute so i assumed the fuel filter. cracked the line into the manifold...

The fuel pressure might be low(fuel pump , pressure regulator)
You may have vacuum leak somewere in intake system.
Bad air flow sensor , throttle position sensor etc...
Multiple causes for case like this.
Probably better take it to a workshop , unless you have knowlage and tools to check all those components.

I have a Chrysler Sebring 2000 and it will turn on but then all of sudden stop working it makes a jerking noise b4 turning off and its not the transmission because that has been changed along with the...

Fuel pump is a posibility, but they usualy fail completely rather than work intermidintly. If the engine or trans was changed very recently Maybe a sensor unhooked or un adjusted. Have to scan it with an obdII scanner to check your codes but some of these chryslers had the crankshaft positioning sensor on a kind of slotted adjustable setup running off the torque converter through the transmission bellhousing.
I have put them together before and the car ran with a heavy tic when first started then chugged and died. The scanner told me loss of crank or cam sensor so i new what I messed up right away. Lossened the bolt and backed the sensor off and it ran fine. Of course I dont even know which motor you have, or if it has the adjustable sensor. First thing you need to do is have it scanned.
