Default Power Steering Pump Compatibility

Hi!

This is my first post on this forum so let me introduce myself first,

My name is Ludwig. I'm from Germany, I'm a proud owner of a 2001 2.0l 16v PT Cruiser Touring Edition. I was really happy with the car, it was a thing of beauty for me... That is until the power steering pump broke... I went to my local workshop and my trusted fellow there gave me a price of 300! And the installation fee wasn't involved...

I decided to do some research and I found some really good price tags! I decided on the A1 Cardone Pump which was just 40$! But all of the pumps I've found in USA, the 2.4l version is the only option... Is the pump for the 2.4l compatible with my car?

All of the replies are much appreciated!

Thank you.

We don't get the 2.0L engine here, so we don't know.
Go by the dimensions of the pump. If it fits, use it.
I would think, but don't know for sure, that a Neon pump would be compatible - the Neon used the same 2.0 engine.

You can try UKCruisers.Net - lots of 2.0L Cruisers there, but they'll want you to pay to join...

If the A1 Cardone p/s pump your speaking of is the same as this,it should be the right one,But the price your referring to is for a 're-manufactured' pump.....The expensive one they wanted to sell you was a 'brand new' one;You can use a 're-man' just fine,you do need to remember the price your quoting is after your core return though;Here's also the correct one from PartsGeek:http://www.partsgeek.com/yrhnsn1-chr...+Steering+Pump

According to Factory Chrysler Parts website,it shows the p/s pump is the same,it even specifies '2.0L [ECC] Engine' in the part description.
It also shows these vehicles ALL use the same p/s pump:

Hello Germany, Sweden calling. We have the same PT Cruisers as you do. I just did some research on some Scandinavian websites and now I know everything about what you need to know Your PTC needs a pump with the OEM number 4656402AC. These pumps were used in 2000, 2001 and 2002 models. They were used on both 2.0 and 2.4 engines. You can not use a pump from a Neon according to what I have read on the Scandinavian sites. I checked if there are any pumps you could use for sale on German ebay and there are a few. They are used and cost more than a remanufactured pump bought from the U.S. so my advice would be to buy a nice shiny remanufactured pump from America.

It appears the pulley is also the same.....Since your ordering from Parts Geek,might as well get the pulley from them too,and maybe save on shipping by combining:01 2001 Chrysler PT Cruiser Power Steering Pump Pulley - Steering - Dorman, Replacement - PartsGeek

That's actually a question best answered by yourself,because only you know what your limitations may be,but to assist you in your decision,this short YouTube video may help you figure out whether or not the cost of install by a shop/technician is worth it:

You may want to flush your power steering lines and pump and clean the mesh screen in the power steering resivore before trying to replace the pump.
A prior owner used trans fluid in a PT Cruiser PS unit I purchased and it was making a terrible sound, I flushed it out and filled with power steering fluid, that was 22 thousand miles ago, still running ok.
