I need serious help.. i dont know what is wrong with my car. ok well i drove my car to my college the first time i drove it on a fourteen hour trip and when i got here it started to act weird. i was driving around town then when i went to park my car it would not go into park it wouldnt go past reverse. then finally i got in park then i drove it around again thinking it was fine when i went to park back at school it would not go it park no matter how hard i tried. then my shifter got really loose and the shifter would move to drive nuetral park reverse, but the car still remained in reverse so i had to shut it of because something was broke so now my car is stuck in reverse and i dont know if anyone possibly knows what im talking about or the problem with my car

#23 of 33 2000 300M Will not start
Oct 29, 2009 (12:52 pm)
I have a 2000 300m , 180,000 miles, while my wife was driving it cut off. Now it will not start. I was told the timing belt broke, and that I needed another engine..because the valves were probably bent.. Is it better to change the belt and heads or change the entire engine... Which would be cheaper!!!

My chrysler 300m 1999 starts jerking when the car is at speeds of 60-80mph. The check engine light flashes, of course the car is jerking/knocking. I let of the gas so the jerking can stop. it does but i want to get to the bottom of the problem and fix it. What could be the problem?

Cheaper: Used heads from good junk yard. Have machine shop check for cracks, and check valves. Buy head gasket set, and Chiltons. may need to rent cam shaft tool
Cheapest: Used low mileage, engine from good junk yard.

#29 of 33 intermittent tapping
Aug 14, 2011 (7:04 pm)
Ok, now that i got the starting stalling issue fixed, my other issue is my engine recently started making a tapping sound. It starts after its been driven when the engine is warm. I hear it when I come to a stop sign and a stop light but it goes away when I pull off. It even goes away when the car is put in park. But I also noticed it becomes a little more pronounced if I have the car in park and or when I slightly turn the steering wheel to the left or right. It sounds like its coming from the left driver side but its hard to tell since im always driving.
Any body have this same problem and what did you do to get it fixed? Any help would be appreciated.

I like so many other 300m owners had that same problem recently, have your mechanic check the cam and crank sensor. I had mine replaced and now it starts and runs fine.
