You might check the lose nut behind the wheel for proper head spacing between to auditory input devices.

The nut behind the wheel is all good. When I'm going 55 and I do it its like "zzzzzzzt", but when I'm going like 90 and try it, it's a lot louder, like "ZZZZZZZT!". You think that means its an auditory problem?

it isn't. i contacted liberty. they didn't know what the problem was and they wanted a fortune to go through it since they don't really do mopar stuff. besides they're in michigan and i'm in chicago. i'm afraid to drive that far in 5th gear at 3500rpm.

It lies between the auditory area. It's like this big cracker with this big hunk of Gouda in the middle. Now it's OK if your Gouda stays there. But when the Gouda starts to move closer to the eadge , things like this begins to happen. Pretty soon your making references to super hero's and then your Gouda slides completely off. Then you start grinding 6th gear and writing weird poetry. And that ain't Gouda for nobody.

When you're experiencing this particular problem.......I recommed pulling over IMMEDIATELY,get out,walk around the entire vehicle,and check to make sure your PT Cruiser hasn't transformed into a Corvette,Camaro,or Mustang!lmao
