Several things could be going on, all them not good. You could have piston blow-by, where the gas is getting past the piston rings, necessitating those being replaced. There could be combustion problems. There could be a leaking gasket in the engine or a cracked block. Any of these problems need taken care of soon.

Chrysler 300m oil light came on while driving and the engine then shut down. the oil light is still on the dash and the car wont start. turns over fine just dont run


Are you SURE that it was Oil Light then Engine Shut off? There is not a ENGINE SHUT OFF if the light comes on that I am aware of and I have worked on quite a few 300's.

I would be trying to start the vehicle by:
Verify Fuel Pressure
Spray Starting Fluid in the Intake and see if it starts then
Are you sure there is Spark?
CRANKSHAFT SENSOR went bad

My 2000 Chrysler 300m wont start it turns over but wont fire its getting gas but wont fire


Are you certain it's getting gas, does it smell flooded?
Pull one of the plugs, see if its wet after cranking.
Ground plug and check for spark, if no spark, problem could be crank sensor or coil packs.

2001 Chrysler 300M Engine Light on all the time


Hello, my engine light was on for a VERY LONG time and everytime I got it checked no one could tell me what the problem was because things always checked out fine. The "code" says its a loose gas cap or something, but it wasnt that. My 300M also was having A HARD TIME STARTING UP for about 8 months and leaking coolant for about a month. I finally found a mechanic who knew what he was doing; 1. Leaking Radiator 2. Coolant found in #2 or #3 cylinder. The cause of this was a busted HEAD GASKET. If your 300M has trouble starting and the Engine light stays on have a mechanic check your engine for a busted head gasket and see if all your cylinders are firing correctly. I had to pay $2600 for a new Head Gasket, Radiator and all new hoses plus labor. CRYING!!!!!!!!!!

I have a 2001 300M 130K - very well kept. Stuff happens...

My Chrysler 300m is misfiring on the 4 cyl. Check engine on.


hello, The 300m's all have individal coil packs for each cylinder. They pretty much sit right on top of the spark plug and have a long boot that goes down into the head onto the spark plug. If you have not replaced the one on cylinder #4 I would do so and that will probably fix your problem. It is held down by 2 torx screws. They are around $85 bucks at the parts store. Hope this helps

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.

Starts to vibrate while driving, check engine


The reason your check engine light comes on is that the system is letting you know there is a problem, and it SHOULD be stored so that a hook up to a OBD II reader will locate the code.
The only way you are going to get a burning oil smell is to have engine oil dripping on to a hot surface like an exhaust manifold or pipe.
Check for oil leaks at manifold, valve cover gaskets ect.
How long does it run again after it stalls ?
