Question about 1999 Chrysler 300M
The timing belt went out and now the car won't start and the engine has no compression. It didn't make any noises when it went out. I got a new timiing belt and now it just makes a whirring noise when I try to start it. The mechanic's manual doesn't say whether the 3.5L is an interference engine which might mess up the pistons when the timing belt goes out. If they are bad would it be best to rebuild or buy a used engine.
This is an interference engine. Make sure you have timing marks lined up correctly. if so then you have bent valves.As far as rebuilding or replacing it all depends on your skill level and if you want a warranty or not. Using a reman engine from jasper would come with a 3yr 75k mile warranty parts and labor. where as rebuilding your self would have none.
