Cool Fake Turbo

I have a 2002 that is not a turbo, but it has recently begun to sound like one. The dash vibrates, and I think this is a result of the new roughness of the car. I have also had to replace the engine mounts twice. I am losing my love for my vehicle. Help

Welcome tiltedscales to Ptcruiserlinks. There is so much information available to all covering everything related to PT Cruiser and more. Wow, where to begin with your situation. Have you had this problem in the shop? Does it need a tune-up, misfire, coil, plugs, etc.? Bad gas or something else? You can find answers. Don't be discouraged by the pt. Good luck

As was said, we need more information to try and help you out. Mileage and what have you done yourself to try and solve the problem? When was the last time you changed plugs and wires. At what mileage did you have to change engine mounts? Normal driving, they should last a long time. I'm still on the original mounts with 117K. Do you live where there's lots of potholes or rough roads? Answers to these question will help us help you.
