Hi theoriginalj, have the CPS (cam positioning sensor) and the CSS (crankshaft sensor) checked as soon as possible either one of these has caused a lot of problems for the 300M good luck and hope this helps you. let me know how you make out in the event it may be another problem take care

Location of transmission dip stick


Right behind the air box on the 2.4L engine. Note that this model car requires that the engine is off when checking the stick (unlike most cars). The procedure is to first get the engine up to operating termperature then put the car in park, engage the emergency brake, then put the car in drive low, drive 2, neutral, reverse then park. Shut car off then check transmission fluid level. Source - 2010 Chrysler Sebring owner's manual.

What would prevent a 2005 jeep liberty from shifting out of park


this is a feature, on A/T cars. for vast years, !!!
my jeep is M/T and has no such thing, but A/T has this.
This feature, prevents starting in GEAR.
called park lock out, so the Audi lady can't drive over her kids, ( really sad huh?)

Called BTSI: by jeep.
this feature does, not stop starts/crankikng. unless, the shifter is not placed
in park or neutral. (this feature blocks cranking in any gear)

so i must guess, its in park, engine is running, right?
and your foot, is on the brake, and the brake lights do glow behind car, if not the park lock will stay locked.

if you need a schematic, i can send it.
some cars there is a park lock out bypass so you can drive
with no brake lights. (LOL)

the BTSI bypass is missing this feature, in 2006, unlike older cars.
a federal mandate that bypass removal.

check the brake light fuses first of brake lights are dead.
the post back for schematic.
the FSM covers how to fix this on all cars made, (usa car, and forum)
The OEM "factory service manual" buy one and end guessing.
or login to alldata.com


http://www.scantool.net/software/alldata-diy-1-month-subscription.html

so does the starter work or not in park or neutral.
this i can not guess from your post. at all.

no starts
no cranks
fails to stay running, engine.
what?
if the key will not crank the engine in park , then try cranking
in Neutral,(this trick uses fresh PRNDL contacts)
if the engine will not crank use jumper cable ump starts from a running donor car, (read paper sheet in cable box, it tells how )

if the car now cranks and starts jumped,that means the battery
was (is) discharged, that can be caused by phantom drains.
all tests are easy, and all take only a 10$ walfart DMM meter.
to find true cause , ask.

try posting what step fails in the operator guide , how to start your engine.
shift to park.
foot on brake,
turn key to crank, does this fail?

The thermostat don't work where is it located at to put it on the 99 chrysler 300m


Jacquelin! The thermostat n a 3.5 Chrysler 300M is on the block right next to, and toward the front of the engine by the oil filter. Yes, that sems a bit strange, but then I'm not a bit surprised about this engine any more. As the big radiator hose leaves the radiator finding its' way toward the block, it terminates at a traditional "goose neck" at the block behind the power steering pump- only accessible by removing the oil filter and using an extension and a u joint BUT FIRST: lower the anti freeze in the system by draining some fluid. But anyway- THAT'S where it is. Have fun, fix it up and GO!

99 300M low side A/C pressure


Generally, low side A/C pressure is measured by a gauge that ranges from 25psi to 45 psi when the compressor is engaged and the engine is running and the a/c is set on its coldest setting.

This is true for most cars on the road today.

Chrysler 300M Transmission slow to engage when shifting from reverse to drive. this is the only problem


ther isn't anything anyone can do without driving this with a scanner hooked up to see if you have any codes and to see the data to see if anything is wrong.
This problem can be anything from a computer issue to a trans or engine issue. The problem will be internal to all the above mentioned. You could do a trans service and hope for the best but a diagnostic approach would be better

Why is it hard to shift from parking to drive?


Do you park on a slope or anything? When on a slope make sure you use your parking/emergancy brake. Put on the brake before you switch to park when parking. When you leave, switch to reverse or drive and then turn off the parking break. It Should be easier on the tranny.. or what ever it's called.

2002 chrysler 300 wont go into park


It sounds like your linkage is binding. Hold the brake down and shift between drive and reverse a few times and then into park. I had the same problem with my 2002 300m. It went away after working the shifter a number of times. DO NOT FORCE IT.
