Default Looking for info on TSB 0900704?

I was wondering if anyone can give a detailed info on TSB 0900704? I remember it was passed along in our club meeting a few months ago. I only wrote down the TSB #, but I don't remember any of the specifics. I understand this TSB covers all models up to '04.

Not power steering, but if I recall, it's something about some noise heard during idle.

The time the TSB info was beeing passed around at our meeting, I was new (first meeting I attended), so I didn't know any names. Nor do I remember which person had this info.

Make : CHRYSLER
Model : PT CRUISER
Year : 2004
Manufacturer : DAIMLERCHRYSLER CORPORATION
Service Bulletin Num : 0900704
Date of Bulletin: MAR 02,2004
NHTSA Item Number: 10006455
Component: ENGINE AND ENGINE COOLING:ENGINE
Summary: IRREGULAR ENGINE SNAPPING SOUND. *TT

OVERVIEW: This bulletin involves chamfering the bore radius on cam bearing caps L2 through L5 and R2 through R5.

NOTE: This bulletin applies to vehicles equipped with a 2.0L, 2.4L DOHC, or 2.4L Turbo engine (sales code ECC, EDZ, ED1, EDV, ED2, or EDT).

SYMPTOM/CONDITION: The sound may be noticed when the engine is idling in park between idle rpm and 1400 rpm at normal operating temperature. The sound is on the upper end of the engine (cylinder head) towards the front of the engine or passenger side (right side). The sound is irregular, not periodic or harmonious. The frequency of the sound will increase with RPM. The sound is more of a higher pitch snapping noise, not a low metallic knock.

Mine is in the dealership right now with this 'condition'
At cold startup, open hood. After about 20 seconds I could hear irregular, but constant tapping noise coming from upper valve train area.
They said two days to complete.

What a timely schedule for this service . . .
. . . 1094 days after purchase (1 day before 3-year/36,000 warranty expires!!)

Received call from dealership service . . .
They were sure it was simply the TSB . . .
Cam cap chamfering completed, put back together, but the noise still there.
They are now looking at the intake head . . .

Right now PT is sadly sitting in service with it's intake AND head removed . . . [:I]
Message they left on answering machine is they were going to replace intake . . .

2003 DCII
Purchased April 6, 2003

And yes, I did remove the Stage 1 computer, injectors, UCP, & Magnecores before bringing it in . . . just as a CYA.

And thanks again Mean Green. I AGAIN took your recommendation and had this service done in Beaverton. Good bunch of guys, and thorough, too.

. . . and when they finished with it . . .
Brand new cylinder head installed, including new camshafts, valves, springs, lifters, rockers, seals, gaskets, etc.

SURE glad I took it in when I did.
