Thanks for the info. I took it again to another mechanic and he also stated that it might be rods or the crank shaft. The timing belt/brackets suggestion is a new one for me. Yes, it is very costly. I recently took out an extended warranty on this vehicle so my deductible is only $100.00... I will keep you informed.

Similar problem in a Caddy my wife drove. Turned out to be a belt pulley with bad bearings. I can't recall if it was the belt tensioner wheel or another pulley. Luckily, it was easily accessible and not very costly to replace.

My 2002, 300M engine starts jerking between 2 and 3 RPMs. What could be the problem?

My car is slugish or it jerks whatever you want to call it. When you take off and the needle gets up between the 2 & 3 RPMs it starts jerking back and forth. Or do you call it slugish. I have taken it to a Dealership and had a diagnostic test. They arent sure what it is. It could be 3 different things. Timing Belt, Fuel Pump, or possibly drive plate. So much for a diagnostic test. What a waste. I would really like to know. I love this car. It only has 73,000 miles on it. Now the check engine light is on of course until we fix the problem. If anyone out there knows what it is or they have had some experience with the same thing please let me know. Thanks

#10 of 33 99 300m stalling problem
Jan 08, 2008 (11:23 pm)
My car will all of a sudden stall. it usually happens when i am just about stopped. i can put in neutral and start it back up but it is getting annoying. also when i am driving at highway speeds it will some times feel like it chugs. i have done a fuel system cleaner and that didnt see to help at all. is there any explanation for these things?

try using your key code to see if there is a fault code.put your key in the ignition turn on to run but dont start.do three times on,off,on,off,on.you should see a code where your trip meter is.i have a 2002 300m and it did same thing.i got a p0206 fault,which is an injector 6 circuit fault.runs like a 300m now.
