Default Handy's List of Parts for His PT Cruiser (So Far)

Seventeen days ago I bought my little red 2001 PT Cruiser Limited. Cosmetically, the car is very clean except for some minor dings and small dents near both back taillights that can easily be popped back out. Based on the PT's I looked at, I think I got a pretty good deal. It was an everyday driver with good tires, no signs of overheating. And looks like the timing belt has already been replaced at some point. Mileage is about 127K.

While getting this little cute car ready for a daily 110-mile round trip commute, I've been keeping a running total on what I've spent. Below is the list. This may be enlightening for those wanting to buy an older PT, even one in good condition. And remember, I do all my own work.

Handy's List of Parts for His PT Cruiser (So Far)

I'll keep adding to this list. I'm likely going to soon buy a new ECM and K&N style cold air intake and filter. I sold my 1996 Sebring convertible w/248,000 actual miles for a cool $1,000. So I still have a little cash left.

Leave this out if you bought new ones. Doesn't work in my opinion. Don't spray on the new belts.

Also agree. I only use belt dressing to troubleshoot if you think you have a belt squeal - if the belt dressing quiets things down, replace the belt.

That's what I bought the belt dressing for. I used it first to make sure the noise I was hearing was indeed the the tensioner pulley and not the drive belts.

In reality, that's about all belt dressing is good for. If you need it to keep the belts quiet, you've likely got bigger issues.
