hatchy (chris),

You have the diesel engine and 99% of the people on this forum have the 2.4 gas engine as most are from the U.S. Your codes could mean something completely different than ours and I'msure the diesel engine has problems we don't run into.

A few of us are on the United Kingdom website where half the members there have the diesel engine and the technical Guru named DREDD is a wiz at helping owners with their problems. Not chasing you away, it's just that you'll have a better chance of finding an answer to your problems on the UK site.

Here's their address. Tell em PT Cruiser Links sent ya.
