Thumbs up Howdy y'all from Nashville TN

Just purchased a 2007 pt cruiser touring for my Grandmother to drive. Got a great deal and it's pretty clean. It's driveable as it is but I'm going to be fixing a few issues before I hand it over so I'm hoping to use the forum to get it done. This was a car she really wanted and I'm hoping to make it as reliable as possible.

Tasks:
Mechanic will do Front wheel bearing, possibly timing belt/water pump.
Replace Cooling fan on radiator
Fix Rough Idle on cold start(believe it's the intake gasket, I hear a whistling - read this could be the bad radiator fan causing vibration)
Fix groaning power steering (I've read about the reservoir getting clogged, I'm going to try cleaning it and putting in fresh fluid.)
Fix AC (not getting cold but compressor is spinning - wonder if it could be the cooling fan and low charge)
Tune-up (plugs, wires, air filters, pcv)
Fix flat tire
Detail
Find floormats
Replace rear backup light
Polish Headlights
Replace rear window switch

That's about it for now. I've done a lot of post lurking and research through the site and have a good idea of what needs to be done. You guys have really put some good effort in documenting these cars. I've gotta say I really like this car and may not want to give it up when I'm done. Maybe I'll find another one later on.

Welcome to the forum from an old TN native. Pull-A-Part out on Centennial Blvd usually has a LOT of PT's. You can find all kinds of interior and body parts there if needed. And floor mats should be readily available too. Just depends on what color you want.
