Re: possible (probable) timing belt failure

But removing the top cover is a pain in itself. You still have to practically remove everything on that side of the engine.

Re: Multiple error codes - 08 PT Cruiser

How do I check the speeds on my fan? I didn't know there was more than one.

A/C works when moving, but not when stopped

2008 PT Cruiser, lots of issues lately - one of which is the a/c will work fine when the car is moving, but starts to blow warm / hot air when stopped.

Thoughts?

Thanks.
