I am having the exact same issue with my 2001 300M. It started just a few weeks ago. When I took it into the dealer, they claimed they saw no problem and no fault codes came up in the diagnostics.

that would be fuel pressure and that wont cause a no start only low pressure not high.

yes I got my car back and it is working fine now....the mechinic said that the fuel injectors were probably clogged up so he had me put some TECHRON in the gas tank..the 1st tank I put in 2 bottles of TECHRON and the second tank I put in one bottle it seemed to help I went to Vegas back with no problems at all...so I hope it is cured!!!!! you can get TECHRON at any chevron station it cleans the fuel injectors....
