2001 Chrysler 300M Problems

Make Sure Air Bleed Valve is Open Before Refilling Coolant

Before refilling the coolant, make sure the air bleed valve is open. Follow the proper fill procedure—it will prevent problems with overheating, low heat output from the heater, and possible coolant bottle failure.

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).

Noise in Front Suspension Due to Worn Sway Bar Bushings/End Links

Worn sway bar bushings or sway bar end links may cause a rattling or clunking noise from the front suspension during low-speed driving. Though not always the root cause, front struts are often replaced for this condition.

OK so I bought a 2001 300m about 4 months ago for $400 YES $400, it needed a tranny replaced as the one in it was slipping, go into gear and then come out and give it a little gas a away it goes again. Well car has about 200K miles on it and it also needs all new front suspension, rattles when drove bad in the front. Not a biggie as it will cost about $400 for all new ready struts and bushing...
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...
