Question about 2001 Chrysler 300M

1 Answer

2002 chrysler 300 M 3.5 liter immediatly quits after starting.

Engine quits after starting, will run fine if you keep RPM above 1000. The check engine light is not on. A scan using an autoXray scanner shows fault code 0108, MAP sensor voltage to high. I checked the voltage at the sensor IAW the Haynes repair manual. Connector removed, engine off, ignition on, 4.9 volts. Connector on, engine off, ignition on, 4.75 volts. Start engine, voltage varies 1.5 to 2.3 (rough to get accurate as engine will not idle below 1000) . If I'm reading it right the manual suggests a problem with the ECM, but I don't know enough about these systems to be sure, and I don't understand why the check engine light is not indicating a fault. When I conduct the test the fault light comes on, after I reset the code and restart the engine the check engine light does not come back on, however I still read thye code with my scanner.Side note; all other systems appear to be normal, except air conditioning, you have to cycle the temp controls to get cool air.

The ECM is most likey the culprit but I would check ground wires and wiring harness to be sure they aren't faulty. With you telling me the voltage is too high, it pretty much points to wiring but the ECM may have gone bad and its just sending blind signals hence the high voltage. The engine light isn't coming maybe because of the ECM isn't working. Pray it isnt the ECM, its costly but exhaust your options by checking wiring and ground beforing fingering the ECM

Nothing, you have hit the rev limiter. The up and down is the computer controlling the rpm. If you drive it, it should rev past 3,000. The computer is designed to keep free wheeling rpm to that level. It will only allow a higher rpm if vehicle is in gear and moving with a load.

I would start with cleaning the throttle bore and plate. Then clean the Idle Air Control valve, IAC, as this is the device that controls idle speed. Use a can of spray carb cleaner and an old toothbrush. Trouble with the IAC would make sense if you can keep the engine going by holding down the gas pedal a bit.
Use the carb cleaner to check for vacuum leaks at hose connections and elbows. run engine and spray short bursts at hoses and listen for idle speed changes.
And lastly if problem is still there check MAP sensor.

Engine surges at rpm over 1500


Look for a vacuum leak (lines and intake), Is the engine light on, were any codes present? A faulty EGR or IAC could cause the problem too. Check the throttle cable for any restrictions.

2002 Lancer OZ Rally...


I had the same problem with my 2003 Lancer OZ. The oil level and pressure were ok. Car was fine with no light when starting. After 10 to 15 mins of driving it would come on when I was stopped. It would go away when I pressed accelerator. Try replacing the Oil Sending Unit. It's about $10 and easy to swap. That was my problem.
