Well my grilfriend was driving to work and the car behind her said she noticed sparks coming from up under the drivers seat and then it just caught on fire from under the divers seat andthe flames ingulfed the car all around and lucky they died downfor a couple of seconds and she was able to jump out of the car but soon after she got out the flames rose back up and got wrost and i want to know what the hell could cause that because 2 months ago i got a full tune up and service done on it i have or had a 2001 300M, can someone shed some light because i tried calling Chrysler but nothing so i might just need to hire an attorney.

In order to prevent a fire, please do not drive the vehicle until the problem is solved, and I might suggest you take the second step and unhook the battery as well.
I looked up the coils, and you have many, one for each spark plug. Please share the exact location of the hot resistor.
there are 2 pieces to the crankshaft sensor...one is a little round thing that is mounted under the valve cover on the driver side. The other part plugs into this and the cable runs down under the other side of the engine. The sensor is inside the timing belt cover.
i had your problem a month ago and had the little round part replaced and that worked for me.
Before you get all excited have the fault codes read and then you will know what sensors are faulty. The pining Rattle)/knocking noise you mention normally occurs on acceleration and is called detonation . It is spontaneous combustion that is occurring before the spark and places stress on the up coming piston (knock). The fault codes should show up a code that refers to the knock sensors . The purpose of them is to address in the CPU the incorrect air/fuel mixture and timing and make the necessary adjustments to stop it.
The growling noise may be a diff pinion bearing under load or problem CV joints or even failing wheel bearings so have all that check out by a qualified mechanic.. I am suspicious of the mileage as 4 year old should have around 70 to 80000 miles on the clock.
computer controlled engines seldom need a tune up as the CPU keeps the car in tune and if it can't then it will record a code to let you know what to fix. As for the synthetic oil if you do regular oil changes and have the right viscosity oil for your area ambient temperature then there is no big advantage over mineral oils except the cost of mineral oils is cheaper.
look for rust holes, missing drain plugs, in the floor pan, under the car, spray when driving also comes up off the road and tires, there are a number of points of entry, seat mounnts transmission mounts
not really a solution, just something to check
i had one of these problem childs in my shop after hours of no problem . finnaly it died at the repair shop this problem was related directly to heat and with a scann tool i could see erratic crank reference . let it sit for 5 or so min it fired right back up . this is the ticket when the problem happens lay on the gas while turning it over if you hear it poping out the intake or out out the exhaust like spark is at the wrong time you have your answer. on these motors the injector pulse is responsibility of cam sensor and spark is the cranksensors duo.
