Customer Question
I have a 2005 Chrysler...
I have a 2005 Chrysler 300c 5.7l, with 108,000 miles, last tune up was 18,000 miles ago and it runs and idles great. The problem is as i accelerate from a stop or already moving the car starts to stutter - losing and regaining power quickly and once I get up to cruising speed it usually stops. NO CODE HAS EVER APPEARED. This is a problem that happens only once in awhile and there is no consistency as in fuel level, am or pm, and the car doesn't die. Keep in mind there is no transmission slipping.

Pull the air intake apart and clean the throttle plate, both sides. make sure the air filter is clean and pull a spark plug to see if its black

Spark plugs looked great, the idle has not been a problem, nor has accelerating (other than the quick stutter) but I will clean the throttle plate.

that would be the first thing that I would try

What Customers are Saying:

I was skeptical at first but thought I'd give it a try. I was pleasantly surprised. Your site actually is a quality service that I would recommend to others in a heartbeat.

StanSayre, PA

I AM VERY GLAD THAT I TOOK A CHANCE ON YOUR PROBLEM SOLVING SKILLS. I WAS SUCCESSFUL IN REPLACING THE FUEL PUMP. MY TRUCK RUNS LIKE A CLOCK. IT RUNS LIKE THE DAY I BOUGHT IT. NO LUNGING FORWARD, THE TURBO REACTS THE SECOND I STOMP ON THE GAS, AND IT HAS A LOT MORE POWER AND EVEN SOUNDS BETTER TO ME. IT SAVED ABOUT $500.00 BY DOING THE WORK MYSELF. I GIVE YOU ALL THE CREDIT FOR YOUR DIAGNOSING THE PROBLEM, JUST FROM THE SYMPTONS I GAVE YOU OVER THE e MAIL. I WILL USE YOUR WEB SITE AGAIN AND REFER MY FRIENDS. THANKS SO MUCH FOR THE HELP.

TOM WHITTAKERUSA
