Question about 1999 Chrysler 300M

1 Answer

99 300m Dies at just under half a tank.

My 99 Chrysler 300m dies at just under a half a tank and the check engine light starts to flash. After letting it sit for a while it starts. It has happened twice in a week. The first time I replaced a bad coilpack and filled it up. I was fine until just under a half a tank again then it did the same thing. Any suggestions? Please help.

    Thanks I actually changed the "coil pack" and filled up the gas lol. Yea we're thinking it maybe something like water or gunk in the tank, we're gonna drop the tank next week and see what we can find. Thanks again.

This is clearly a fuel problem so I'm confused as to why you changed the coil. You may have several problems ranging from water or crud in the tank to a bad level sending unit telling you that you have that much fuel or a bad fuel pickup.

My Chrysler lebaron has always ran good. one day I hit a large pot whole and the car stalled. Since then the star starts and idles fine but wen I am driving and I turn the car to the left the engine dies....

It sounds like the float setting changed when you hit the pothole. You could open it up and set the float but the best method may just be a new carb.

Well first it should only restart in park or nuetral, any check engine light on? May be fuel pump if not. Listen for pump running in fuel tank. Should run at key on for a few seconds. If check engine light on, it should be scanned for codes, possible crank sensor

I have 1992 Pontiac Bonneville SE with 3800 engine runs good most of time but then it will start to miss and act like it is running on three cyls.,have replaced coil pack,ignition module,crank...

run engine until problem occurs. turn engine off or let it die. leave key on but don't start engine. put a paper clip in diagnostic plug under steering column. look at area on dash where service engine soon flashes. count flashes. (ex. 1flash-1,1 flashes=1,2. if you see 1flash of service engine soon, then 5 flashes in a row the diagnostic check = 1,5. It will flash this several times in a row. this is your code. look it up or ask and find out what it is. this is usually your problem area. let the car tell you.

2005 chrysler sebring start then dies right

i bought a 2005 sebring and they gave me 2 keys. one grey and thick. the other black and less heavy. the black one will start the car but as soon as i take it out of park it dies. the grey key has a chip in it that sends a signal to the engine. The black one doesn't. it is more like a back up key so that if you lock your other key in the car and it also unlocks doors and trunk.
