Default Help?

First I would like to say Hi. I tried to get the Dealer to look in to this but they say it is normal I know that is bull. My Pt cruiser is a 2008 I purchased new it has 48,000 miles on it. Here is my question. I am getting a knock from under the engine around the oil pan or around the MT. I do not here the knock when driving only when at idle, all so it only happens when the engine is hot not cold.

Think you should get a second opinion,. Is it still under warranty?

Maybe get a good reputable mechanic to give it a listen and a opinion. Then you can contact Chrysler and complain. Worth a shot.

the flexplate (driveplate) bolts will come loose-
Chrysler went to a flexplate in 1996 for most PT/PL vehicles, so, yes, even the MT has a flexplate
