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.

How much did the cam cost you? I have had my 300 for less than a year and the cam is out on mine. I am so disappointed and still owe alot of money on it.

I didnt have the cam replaced, it was the cam sensor and the crank sensor. My mechanic charged me $150.00 total.

WELL MY QUESTION TO YOU IS DO YOU ALWAYS BELIEVE WHAT SOMEONE TELLS YOU???? THERE IS A WAY TO TELL IF YOUR GONNA NEED A NEW ENGINE, THE PROBLEM IS IS THAT IT WILL COST YOU SOME FUNDS TO RE-TEST AND SEE IF INDEED THE VALVES ARE BENT, #1 A NEW BELT NEEDS TO BE PUT ON, #2 THEN A GOOD COMPLETE COMPRESSION TEST NEEDS TO BE DONE AND IT WILL DEFINATELY TELL YOU EITHER WAY, I JUST HAD ONE DONE BY A SHADE TREEE MECHANIC HE WAS LUCKY, IT DIDNT BEND ANYTHING, IF YOURS HAPPENS TO BE A FLUKE THEN THE COST OF PULLING THE HEAD AND LOOKING AT THE DAMAGE CAN BE QUITE EXPENSIVE IF YOU ARE NOT MECHANICALLY INCLINED, BUT IF YOU HAPPEN TO KNOW SOMEONE WHO HAS GOOD COMMON SENSE AND LIKES A GOOD CHALLENGE THEN DONT BE AFRAID TO TAKE THE CHANCE, I MEAN 250.00 VS 1000 AND UP IS A PRETTY STEEP, AND THE LOWER MILAGE YOU FIND, BE PREPARED TO GET BENT OVER, THEN YOU HAVE THE LABOR TO R/R AND YOUR PROBABLE LOOKING SOMEWHERE IN THE NEIGHBORHOOD OF 2200-2700.00 THEN ASK YOU SELF "IS IT WORTH IT"
