Default Re: Spit & Sputter

no need to post twice for the same issue. sometimes it takes a while before someone comes in to help. that being said, the solution to your problem is probably simple.

radiator fan. a very common problem with the pt cruiser. it's a 2 speed fan, high and low, and chances are either one or both of the speeds has worn out contacts.

look in the tech part of the forums under "how to" and you'll find posts on how to check your fan to see if it is running correctly as well as how to replace the fan. you can get a new fan on rockauto for less than $100. i believe the Dorman has a lifetime warranty.
