I have to get out and open the door and wipe it out. Does it make a similar clunk when put into reverse? My life lessons for every young person with a decent job, and the idea of getting their dream car. Has the fluid been changed recently and the correct fluid used? I felt like the coolest kid in town. I drive 37 miles to work one way and now worried I will get stranded in out in the 100 degree heat again, on a back road where I have to drive. Here is a search for your problem from a 300C forum—there are people with similar problems—maybe one has the answer or can give you an idea where to look:.
Over the past 10,000 miles this vehicle has just become a service and repair nightmare. I lost all engine power possibility facing a steering lock down without the capacity to steer the vehicle off the interstate. I came for cheeseburgers and left with no cheeseburgers and another broken trans. I seriously considered the Hemi, but knew that it wouldn't be too long before I no longer had a license. I was like I did not have a clutch in the car.
I know new cars depreciate once they are driven off of the lot. Please please please do not buy Chrysler. I reached out to Chrysler who refused to acknowledge the defective parts on my vehicle despite them recalling this same issue on 2005,2006 models. My concern is I may not get my money's worth from the warranty. Many people came to me and told me to ditch the car. After inspection found that the fuel neck hose needed to be replaced and would take 5 days to get part.
The engine light remained illuminated. The vehicle drove good and gave me no issues for the first couple of days. Are you sure the clunking is coming from the transmission? I replaced it with a much sturdier billet piece and a new spring. This is a known issue with these cars and very pricey to fix. Original review: July 19, 2017 While pumping gas in car, the gas came back out on the ground. We've found that grouping vehicles by their generations is an accurate predictor of reliability.
Sometimes it is difficult to spot damage to control arms, steering knuckles and steering linkage by eye but alignment measurements will show if there is a problem. While driving 35 mph, the engine stalled without warning. This engine failed due to serious engine issues. This doesn't even begin to fix the problem I took it in there for. When I got there I grabbed some duct tape and a garbage bag and sealed it as best I could.
The man arrived in 2 hours and tried to check it out, but it was not even turning over. Dealership said that there is no issues that they can see. The approximate failure mileage was 24,000. Great car but lousy quality and a manufacturer who will not acknowledge the problem or offer anything in the way of customer service. The rear disc brake pads on a Chrysler 300 can last up to twice as long as the front pads or anywhere from 60,000 to over 100,000 miles depending on your driving conditions.
They really know how to treat their customers right and with respect. One that will not cost me emotional distress every time I get behind the wheel. I also discovered that I could only have a quarter tank of gas in my car for it to run smoothly no stalling. I love it and would like to keep it as long as possible! I'm not gonna let this spoil my day just yet. The car is a 99 model and the motor has over 140000 miles but the outer and inner design is not dated.
At some point the car is gonna feel like brand new right? I tried to crank the car once more and nothing. So now they say even if I prove it, they will not investigate if tanks are the cause of engine failures and they closed my case. I think it is doubly unsafe if the bad tanks are also blowing engines, and it is bad corporate behavior to deny a link but refuse to have the engineering dept. This was the first Chrysler I even owned because I heard they break a lot and I remember my grandma had a Chrysler and we broke down in it. The only problem I'm having is at the car wash.
I get a call today saying my alternator and battery need to be replaced. At that point, I had not been experiencing any issues, so I agreed to wait. I took the car to the Chrysler dealer on Saturday but service dept not open till Monday. I will never buy a Chrysler product again. They have been very good until now with all of the previous issues with the care.
I figured out this issue only occurred after fueling my tank. I accelerate through the toll and the car won't go into overdrive. Amazing how a car with a bad alternator and battery still failed to show a warning light. Leaving with no cheeseburgers was bad enough, but a broken trans to boot was just adding insult to injury. I pull into a convenience store.
