2001 Chrysler 300M Engine Overheated

I have about 120,000 miles on my car......over the last month my car will sometimes hesitate to start or not start at all for a few minutes. I have been informed that I need a tune-up or a fuel system flush. I need help to try and figure out what could be causing these problems and exactly what I may need to fix. Please help I need to go to work in the morning and my car just over heated about twenty minutes ago.

I made it home by following the guide book that the car comes with and turned the heat on full blast and the vents to the floor but what now.

    Chrysler Intrepid 1998 - same problem: turn off engine after aggressive driving and would not start for 5-10 min. Put in super-powerful battery (can crank engine for 30-60 sec), helped partially, but problem still there

I had an overheating problem with my 2001 300M....removed the thermostat two years ago and have never had a problem since....it does get cold in the Winter but warms up enough so you don't freeze. I don't think most service centers know that the thermostat goes in BACKWARDS from most cars...due to the coolant coming through a small line through the head....which often gets clogged up...thus the thermostat doesn't work properly. I just decided to remove the thermostat and have had no issues with the car driving it that way.

Will the engine crankshaft turn if the serpentine belt is removed ? One of the accessories may have locked up.
You could also have a damaged water pump which burned the timing belt.

    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!!!!!!!!!!

    2001 Chrysler 300M repeatedly stalling; mechanics can't replicate


    well, the power steering will freeze when the motor is not running. the mechanic may not find what seems to be the problem specially when no warning lights are coming. you can try replacing the fuel cervo and this will surely help. not everyone knows about this.

    2001 Buick Regal cuts off while driving at times also won't start


    The ignition switch on that model is rated @ 50amps. When I was driving my 2001 Regal LS (at 120,000 miles) and used the turn signal, the engine would die, when I switched the turn signal off, the engine ran. So I replaced the ignition switch, and all is well.
