Question about 1999 Chrysler 300M

1 Answer

Tune up I'm about to start a tune up on my car and have a few questions. Firstly, where is the fuel filter located and what is the part number for it as this is my only car and don't want to remove it until I can get the new one. Also, is it recommended to replace everything else with what the owners manual says or are there alternatives I can use that will increase gas mileage and performance without killing my wallet? And lastly, how hard would it be (if possible) to change the transmission fluid and filter on your own?

It does not have an inline fuel filter. Go with the manual except spark plugs, replace them at 100,000 miles.

SOURCE: Car hesitation

had a problem with a grand prix like that once, was the fuel filter, and injectors, all needed replaced, and it only had 89,000 miles.
Would check fuel filter first. Is it possible you got some bad gas??

SOURCE: 2001 sebring will turn over but will not start

Most Chrysler cars do have an anti-theft system that can cut out the engine.

I would call the service department, with your VIN handy, and see if yours was equipped with one, and what you need to reset it.

If that isn't the problem, your EGR valve might be bad, or the sensor for it. I've seen a lot of cars where if either the valve itself, or the sensor are malfunctioning, the car won't run properly.

I would also check your MAF and IAC, as those can cause the car to not run.

If you can, get an OBDII code scanner, and pull the codes from your car, they might give you a more specific place to look. (Most parts stores will let you take one home, you put a deposit down, and get it back when you bringthe scanner back to them)

SOURCE: Changing spark plugs

OK YOUR ENGINE HAS WHAT IS CALLED COIL OVER SPARK PLUG IGNITION, THIS MAKES FOR ALLOT OF LABOR TIME TO TUNE IT, BUT $500 IS WAY OUT OF LINE, GET A COUPLE MORE ESTIMATES, ASK HEM TO SHOW U THE LABOR GUIDE (THERE IS A BOOK THEY USE TO LOOK UP TIMES FOR DIFF REPAIRS) TIME FOR THE JOB, IF THEY WON'T DO THAT THEY ARE CROOKS.

SOURCE: does the fuel filter affect gas mileage

there are lots of things that can affect gas mileage. if the spark plugs and wires are worn out, the air filter being dirty, dirty fuel filter, proper inflation of the tires, O2 sensors that are contaminated and performing poorly. the first thing to do would be that the engine is in good working order, as in no check engine light, no misfire, etc. a poorly running engine will put out terrible gas mileage. then you can start with the things i listed.

SOURCE: I did a tuneup on

The coil wires are probably not connected to the correct spark plugs. The car ran fine prior to the wire replacement, so this seems to make sense. Shown below is the correct firing order in relation to the spark plug cylinder location and the distributor location.

Caused by bad spark , bad fueling or weak compression.

ever get it scanned? with any OBD2 scan tool? see those DTC errors you are missing (no pun) out on?

is this car in USA or not? ours are OBD2 starting in 1996 but not world wide at all.... so location matters. big time.
locations have different engines and diffr. EFI systems.

that tune up replaces filters and spark parts.

My nissan presage has hard start at times can it be the fuel filter


Yes, it could be the fuel filter, and it may be any one of a number other issues. When was the last time the car had a tune-up? You did not indicate the year and mileage of the car. If it has been a very long time since the last tune-up, that would be a good starting point, including the fuel filter.

When was last tune up? Plugs, wires, all fluids & filters especially fuel filter? I'd start there and run a good fuel system cleaner through it. Also avoid cheap fuel - lot of questionable fuel at cheap/cut rate stations.

Missing, think it needs an tune up. where is the fuel filter located? do i have to take it to a repair shop for the tune up? i am good with the older cars but this one is alot different


NO YOU DON'T! THE TUNE UP IS JUST AS EASY AS THE OLDER CARS, BUT YOU DON'T NEED TO SET THE POINTS, OR REPLACE THE CONDENSOR! JUST THE PLUGS, WIRES, DIST. CAP, AND ROTOR CAP! NEW AIR FILTER, PCV VALVE IF IT NEEDS IT! SOME OF THE FUEL FILTERS ARE LOCATED ON THE FRAME RAIL, ON THE DRIVER'S SIDE (LOOK THERE FIRST! IT WILL BE TOWARD THE DRIVESHAFT SIDE OF THE FRAME!

Why is 95 Seville sls stalling and dying while driving?


First question: When was last "healthy" tune up? Plugs, plug wires, ALL filters especially FUEL filter? I'd start there, giving yourself a good base/ "ground zero" starting point. 90% of stalling issues are maintenance related. If it continues after tune up, run a good fuel system cleaner through it, then have a good local parts store IE: Advance, Autozone, etc... do a FREE OBII (fault scan) that will pull all faults computer has logged,

Car suddenly stalls going down the road, sometimes restarting instantly and sometime not at all


First question: When was last healthy tune up? Plugs, plug wires, ALL filters replaced including Fuel filter? I'd start there before throwing "suggested parts". at it. Doing a tune up will give you a good "ground zero" starting point and a tune up will normally address your symptoms.

Misfiring car


try doing a tune up.. plugs wires and fuel filter.wouldnt hurt to dump in a bottle of fuel injector cleaner either. usually that clears it up if not have your ignition control module and coils tested (most parts stores do this free.. atleast in ny anyway) if they come back fine i would start looking at your fuel pressure and fuel pump but with it being an 07 i doubt you will have to go that far...if you didnt have a tune up done before this post who knows after 3 years they could still have factory plugs and wireson it. My old landlord went a few years without having a tune up done on her car.
