QUESTION: the car is a 2002 Chrysler 300m special 4 door sedan, i think they come with a 3.4 or 3.6 liter.

OK Dave,
Try using the ignition key to get a fault code readout that may tell us what is wrong. Turn the key "on-off-on-off-on and leave on" doing that in 5 seconds or less elapsed time. Then watch the odometer window in the instrument cluster to see if the mileage reading is replaced by a 4-digit number preceded by a P. Let me know and we'll go from there.
