Default 2006 PT

Sitting in drive through the other day and the car began to lose power (RPMs dropped but then rose to normal). So, I put it in neutral and gave it some gas and brought it up to between 1500 and 2000 RPMs. at about 1800 RPMs it made a rapid clicking noise and white smoke came from under the engine. We weren't far from home so we left the drive through and made it home. Once at home, we made the noise and smoke happen again. This time I was under the car and the noise and smoke are coming from bottom of the engine, under the battery side.

The car starts, goes in and out of gear with no issues, is not showing a code of any kind and did not have an issue driving home from the drive through.

Please help me!

Usually this is an A/C problem...Freon shooting out the passenger side....making the fan shudder.
There is not a whole lot under the battery.

Is your PT Cruiser a turbo model?

Are you using coolant? If so you should do an engine coolant compression test.

If not coolant are you using transmission oil?

If not transmission check your power steering fluid level.
