Question about 2006 Chrysler 300M

1 Answer

I have a 2006 Chrysler 300 Hemi, when I am driving above 60 MPH and apply the brakes hard to slow down I get a bad shimmy in my steering. This does not seem to happen at slower speeds??? Is this a suspension problem, brakes what?? Thanks, Paul...

If you are getting a shimmy in the wheel this is a good indication that your front brake rotors are warped and upon replacement the lug nuts should be torqued to 100 ft lbs or they might warp again,also the rear brakes should be checked for correct operation to make sure all the stopping force is not left for the front brakes to handle all by themselves,hope this helps

1500 hemi 5.7 Changed power steering pump. About 1,500 miles later the steering is very hard at low speeds. Is there air in the system, bad pump, or maybe rac & pin issue?


Jack the truck up and see if it's hard to turn . Now if you did nor flush power steering system the pump could have gone bad . Most power steering pumps carry a warranty on them wouldn't hurt to swap it out he can do the work yourself but it sounds like your rack and pinion is starting to fail

Why does my 2007 Chrysler 300 start to **** when accelerating around 60 mph and when I take my foot off the gas pedal? No brake was applied.


you need to check you plugs and wires on the car also looking into changing your fuel filter may be a great idea , just a normal tune-up on the car would help this out dramatically

Hii.. i have elantra 2001..when i run about 60 mph..and slow down by breaks..the steering start to shake strongly..when lift my leg..it goes so fine,,whats the problem..? thanks


Your brake rotors are warped. The warped rotors are transmitting their side to side movement, to your steering wheel, when you apply the brakes. Have the rotors checked to see which one(s) is/are warped and have them replaced.

If your tires were not properly balanced then it will cause that. Also, if your rotors are warped then icould cause this to happen. YOu would also notice it when braking if rotors are warped.
