Re: Engine swap

The 2001/2002 PT engine cannot be used in a later 2003 and newer model PT.

The problem is that these two engines use different types of crank sensors that send different kinds of signals back to...

Re: EGR to Non EGR head

I don't believe that will work. I believe there is a small difference in the deck of the 2001/2002 EGR engine compared to the later model engines. Additionally, the EGR light will stay on if the EGR...

Re: Oil Light Comes On Only When Stopped

The PCM in the PT Cruiser is fairly primitive. It will do strange things if the voltage is too low. It is possible that your issue is due to low voltage. To be exact, my PT has been doing some...

Re: Small Chrysler emblem

Those are way too small for the hood. They are mainly used on the PT convertible rollover bar.

The ones for the hood are different depending on the year. 2001 thru 2003 use a smaller one, 2004...

Re: Anybody replaced airbag module?

The Occupant Restraint Controller (ORC) is located under the center console by the parking brake. These often get more than their fair share of soft drinks leaked on them. If everything else checks...

Re: Oil Light Comes On Only When Stopped

The oil sending unit was one of the first things I changed on my 2007 turbo convertible because it was leaking. I don't have your issue, but sometimes it doesn't register quick enough during a cold...

Re: Muppet mechanic's 2001 LE.

Look close and see if that tube is just missing. The PCV vent tube on PT Cruisers is very bad about getting brittle and breaking off. This should not impact engine management but does open up the...

Re: diesel engine oil in a gas engine?

In many cases, the motor oil designed for diesel engines has the wrong type and amount of detergent in it. Diesel engine oil has more additives per volume. The most prevalent are over-base...

Re: Reasonable Auto Insurance Rates

The rates I posted are for every six months. I only pay twice a year. I tried USAA, but they were considerable higher for me. Here's what I pay for our 2019 Charger Scat Pack with full coverage. ...

Re: Can I swap engine from different year?

Re: power steering leak

Color doesn't matter. What matters is the type of material they are made out of. If the spec says they are good for power steering and/or automatic transmissions, then you are likely okay.

Re: power steering leak

You have a 2001 PT with several hundred thousand miles on it. Right? And didn't you change out the line, pump and tank about nine years ago?

If me, I would try tightening the fitting first. It...

This and Steve's advice are very good.

If I had no trouble codes indicating the problem, I'd start with Steve's advise and try an additive to remove carbon build up. I wouldn't try the "water...
