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.

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.

The Window Glass May not Roll Correctly Due to Damaged Glass Lift Plates

The window glass lift plates tend to bend or break and cause the window glass to tilt and bind in the door. The lift plates can be replaced separately from the window regulator. In more severe cases, however, a new window regulator may also require replacement.
