Hello scottym88...The chrysler 300 engine is the weak point on this vehicle, the 2.7 litre was a major headache for owners, dealers and Chrysler...the problem was due to engine sludge, poor oil circulation, poor crankcase ventilation, faulty timing chain tensioners...etc...From 1998-2004 the Chrysler 2.7L was prone to Oil Sludge often caused by internal coolant leakage that has to do with the design of the Water Pump that allows coolant to enter the Engine over time and causes oil sludge...result..ENGINE FAILURE. For 2005, changes included improvements to the PCV system and improved oil circulation, to even later increasing oil capacity by an extra quart in an attempt to make the engine more reliable... Unfortunately, even with all of these modifications premature engine failure is common. I've seen this first hand...and the really sad part is CHRYSLER knows...yet refuses to cover prematurely failed engines even when under its own 3 Year / 36,000 mile warranty while blaming consumers for these problems.
If you want to research this further, check out the consumer complaints on this vehicle and/or the 2.7 litre engine. I have been a MOPAR enthusiast all my life, and in my opinion this was the worst engine that chrysler ever released to the public.
Good luck...i hope this helps answer your question..please rate me a fixya.

Windshield washer stopped working in 2005 chrysler 300 limited


Can you hear the (washer) motor run? Have someone hit the squirters with the key on and out your ear to the filler tube to see if you can hear the pump running. If yes, common for the impeller to spin off the shaft of the motor. I have found that the replacements at the auto stores work rather well. Something of a pain to remove the tank though!

One worn tire


Yes. And, get the computer scanned for codes.

That's a lot of miles for an '05.

Check the age of the battery too. If original, then negotiate for a new one.

Don't know if it's a good price though. Any price your comfortable with paying is a good price though.
