No warning. Car all of a sudden died when driving down the street with 2 children in backseat. Almost rearended by an SUV. Car would not restart for about 1-2 minutes. When it did finally start had a knocking noise and other sounds. Vehicle had no power to go very sluggish. Had car towed the next day to dealer. Warranty denied claim due to oil sludge.

I have a 2007 Chrysler 300. I bought it used on 6/14/08. Within a month that I bought it, the car stalled on me. A Chrysler dealership/garage was not able to find anything major except the throttle had built in debris. Ever since that time, the car has not ran smoothly. Most of the times, the car feels that it loses energy/power when I start to drive it (like when I start the engine and start driving). It also makes a noise when it needs to "shift" to the next power (it is automatic transmission). In 6/09-7/09, my engine light turned on, which the garage that I had to take it to that can repair any type of emission issues needed to replace a valve and then the light did not turn on anymore. Even after this repair, the car continues to feel like if it loses power. I have regular oil changes done so I do not know what is wrong. I feel that there can be some manufacture defect; however, since I have complained about the issues to different dealerships, they seem not to find any problems.

The contact owns a 2007 Chrysler 300. While driving 30 mph, the check engine light illuminated then the vehicle mph decreased to 10. The dealer did not inspect the vehicle. Approximately one week later while driving 40 mph, the check engine light illuminated then the vehicle mph decreased to 20. In addition, the contact stated the vehicle would not accelerate when she depressed the accelerator. The dealer stated that a code on the vehicle caused the failure and they reset the code. Approximately one week later the failure occurred again while driving 60 mph. The dealer stated that valve body caused the failure. They removed and cleaned the valve body however the failure continued to occur. The failure mileage was 200 and current mileage was 2,156.
