Question about Chrysler 300M
Posted by Anonymous on
Sounds like either a weak battery [ may not be getting recharged by the alternator ], or a starter thats about to die. If it dosen't drag and starts fine with a jump, look at the battery & charging system.

Sounds like your battery is starting to go bad, not producing enough amps to turn the starter over properly. Have your battery tested and replace if below specs.

SOURCE: DRIVE FEEL
Just a thought on this is could be that you have a bad universal joint on that wheel. The poping could be the slack warn components in the universal join baning from one side of the encasements as you move from driving the wheel forward to braking and hence using the wheel to slow the vehicle down.
You may check by putting the car in park and jacking the car up on that wheel and seeing how much play there is in the wheel linkage as you rotate it round it clockwise and anticlockwise but this will not making the popping sound in the same way as having the whole car wait resting on the joint as you are travelling along.
If it is the Universal Joint (Constant velocity Joint / CV Joint) it's a very serious condition that needs to be fixed and is a potential hazard to you driving the car. I would get it to a garage to have it checked.
Also it could be be a very worn ball join that is allowing the wheel to run out of alignment and hence makes it feel like its dragging. Again if you jack the car up while in park and try and move the wheel as if the wheel was being turned by the steering wheel - if you can feel play in the assembly here - and the wheel clonks as you pull it in and out you need a Ball joint replaced. Again its serious and should not be left too long to get it fixed.
Its possible if you have had the brakes worked on recently that the brakes could have been put together wrongly but I would go with the other checks first. Also it could be a bad tire that going through some sort of tread separation but test the CV joint and the ball joint first.

It sounds like the battery and if you continue cranking it with low amps it can also damage the starter. You ccan take it to any auto parts store and they will come out in the parking lot and check your charging system and battery for free then you will be sure what is wrong.

Nothing to do with your alternator. Transmission sounds possible. Also possible CV joints (constant velocity) - or your front wheel drive drive shaft(s). The mystery fluid leak is a definite concern. What was texture/color/amount of fluid? Where specifically did it come from?
The "gurgling sound" is a new one to me. ???
The CV joints is an easy check. Get under vehicle and grasp the drive shaft (one on each wheel) and give a good yank towards/away from you. If there is good resistance - or feels pretty solid, your shaft is probably OK. If it moves a whole bunch, it is probably broken and needs replacement. While you are there, check around the rubber ***** that is close to the wheel and make sure it is not ruptured or torn or missing. Anyproblems with this ***** only means inevitable replacement soon. (Some models have replacement boot kits, but I have never had any luck with them.)
