Chrysler Repair: Check Engine Light, exhaust gas recirculation valve, malfunction indicator light
exhaust gas recirculation valve, malfunction indicator light, exhaust gas recirculation: Hi RJ, I am doubtful about the dealer concluding that they could not find a problem when the Check engine light was on.

Chrysler Repair: Check engine light: how to reset?, cable clamp, chrysler 300m
cable clamp, chrysler 300m, 1999 chrysler 300m: Hi Blake, The most common way is to disconnect the battery - post cable clamp for 5 minutes which clears the memory but also will leave a code for battery supply to memory lost recently in the memory; but it too will go away after a while.

Chrysler Repair: Chrysler 3.3L engine misfires badly, emission control system, crank sensor
emission control system, crank sensor, engine coolant: Hi Tom, That is frustrating, no doubt.
