Welcome to the forum

The critical thing with your PT is has the timing belt work been done on it? It should have been done around the 100k mile mark.

Please post some pics of your PT when you get a chance

Welcome to the forum The 2.4 is a frigging work horse when properly maintained. I agree 100% with rckstein about that timing belt. Pain in the ass to do one, but going cost for that at a shop are anywhere from $800 to $1,500. Just depends on the shop and where you live.
