Question about 2003 Chrysler 300M

1 Answer

Continuation from above.

Two thermostats later, the local Chrysler service finally found that the car had been repaired under warranty at 28,000 miles. At that time, they changed the head gasket. After taking the heads off, they found the orignial Chrysler Service department had put the head gaskets on backwards. They sent the heads off and confirmed no warping. So, new headgaskets (on the correct sides this time) and it's still overheating. Now they're planning on replacing the short block.

Can flushing a radiator that was very rusty lead to thermostat and radiator breakage?


Possible but could have had a airlock in the system caused by the coolant change. This happens when changing coolant and not all the trapped air is purged front the system.

2005 Chrysler town and country abs light on, but no trouble codes showing. car brakes seem to be fine.


We own a 2005 Chrysler Pacifica (3.8 litre) and currently have the same problem. This has happened at least 2 other times on our vehicle. Our trouble code was for a faulty ABS wheel sensor, and after searching the internet I found A LOT of other Pacifica owners had the same problem. The first time this happened to us, it was covered under the Chrysler warranty. The second time, it cost about $275 to repair. This is something that only a Chrysler / Dodge dealer can diagnose and repair. At first, we went to Firestone and they preceded to replace the brake pads, rotors, flushed the master cylinder and nothing they did seemed to work. Finally, I went to the Chrysler dealer and they immediately diagnosed the problem and fixed it. I am not sure if the computer will actually report a trouble code for the ABS problem or not. I will warn you that even though the brakes seem fine, eventually they WILL fail on you and you will have SIGNIFICANTLY reduced stopping power. Our light went on while we were down the interstate at 70 mph, and let me tell you that was a very scary situation with me, wife and two kids with NO CONTROL over how fast we could stop. Take your vehicle to the dealer and get fixed, it's not worth risking an accident. Good luck!

When I fill up my 2007 Pathfinder the gas gauge show zero gas, light on and the check engine light comes on. As I run the gas gauge will show the correct amount of gas and later the engine light will go...


The fuel level sensor is at fault and is setting the service engine soon light on. Your local Nissan dealer can repair this under warranty depending on your mileage. The fuel tank will need to be removed to access the sending unit.

2000 Chrysler 300M CD player on strike


You will need to have the player repaired, but a new one! I really doubt, call your local dealer and ask for the number of the local company that is authorized to repair Chrysler /Dodge sound systems, do not go through the dealer, they will 2X the repair bill that the shop charges them, also you can check on the internet for automotive radio repair, call a few to get and idea of the cost, if they have exchange units inquire about this as well, fore warned is fore armed
