Question about 2005 Chrysler 300

1 Answer

Sudden loss of power while driving

2004 300m with 45,000 miles. Check engine light has been on for about a month but car has been running great. But now I can be driving along and all of a sudden the car starts jumping like it's running out of gas.

When I take my foot off the accelarator it smooths out. About every five or ten miles it acts up at different speeds.

In park when I race the engine it misses out very badly.

Someone told me it could be the catalitic convertor.....please help....

One thing you should notice that could tell you if the the engine is misfiring is that the check engine light will flash. If it dose it is saying you have a misfire in either one or more cylinders. If the check engine light dose not flash then it could be more of a fuel pump related issue. but as I said 1st thing would be to check the code... then i could tell you whats going on. good luck

Car feels sluggish driving then sudden loss


Has the check engine light gone on? The focus is going into 'limp' mode to avoid damage to components, due to some problem. Even if there is no check engine light illuminated, bring it to a parts store for a free check of any codes stored in the cars computer. You need this info to figure out what is wrong. If after having the parts store scan for codes you still have questions, re-post them with the codes here.
