2001 Chrysler 300M Problems

Damaged Cam Position Sensor May Cause Engine Problems

A damaged cam position sensor (or its wires and connector) can cause intermittent stalling, stumbles, or hard starting.

Key May Not Turn or be Removed Due to Wear/Failed Lock Cylinder

If the ignition key does not turn and/or cannot be removed, a new lock cylinder may be needed. A worn key can also cause similar problems.

Stalling or Low Engine Idle Speed Due to Dirty Throttle Body

A dirty throttle body may cause low engine idle speed or frequent stalling, as oily residue blocks air flow in the throttle when the throttle is closed. Throttle body cleaning may be necessary to correct this condition. Our technicians caution against spraying cleaner directly onto the throttle body as this may damage the throttle position sensor (TPS).

Value for the dollar is excellent. I bought it used a few years ago for less than 10 grand. I love to drive this car because it is pretty fast and handles well on twisted roads. I can get around 29 mpg on the highway if I drive 65 mph. Sound system is good. On the negative side, the dash has split and the interior door handle broke (one cost $250 to repair). Thought about something ne...
