Default Greetings from Germany

Hi there,

since I'm a - silent- member of this board for quite some time, I feel the need to become more active in the PT community. Thanks to all members who contribute to the forum. It saved me a lot of trouble and money fixing things.

My name is Nico, age 35 from Germany. I purchased my blue 2004 GT in early 2017. Currently it has roughly 92500 mi (149000 km) on the odometer.

The PT is stock, however, an LPG injection system has been added by the previous owner back in 2006.

Features:
GT package | 2.4l Turbo HO | 5 Speed manual | blue exerior | black leather interiour | power sunroof, windows, locks | alarm | summer: 17" alloy wheels | winter: 16" alloy wheels | tinted rear windows | RB3 satnav

Added:
LPG | trailer hitch (detachable) | Mopar parking sensors (strange functionality, lol) | backup-camera

Repairs/maintenance:
timing belt + accessories | new battery | camshaft position sensor | new engine and cabin air filters | oilpan and rear crankshaft seal (to transmission) | valve cover gaskets | oil, filter and coolant | some welding to the driver side rocker end | passenger side drive-shaft/cv-axle (killed when center mount screw sheared off) | new tires | pcv valve

To-Dos:
emergency brake | rust treatment rear wheel wells | ignition parts (ignition coil, lines, spark plugs) | add MP3 functionality to RB3 | whatever breaks next, lol...

Nice car, drives well - which compensates for reliability issues... Unfortunately some spare parts are not easy to get and thus quite expensive :/

So, hi to all

Welcome to the forum, Nico. That is, by far, my favorite color for a PT Cruiser. I'm happy to hear that you're taking good care of it.

Welcome to the forum

Very nice PT you've got (you get a double "Coolblue" because of the color of your PT, which by the way is the same as mine)

Shout when you need something - I've become pretty good at finding stuff cheaply over here. Might even have it myself as I tend to collect bits and pieces when I see them.

Thanks @all for the nice and warm welcome

@Sinbad: OWL hier Falls ich wieder mal Bedarf an Teilen habe, komme ich gerne drauf zurück. Hast du da einen lokalen Anbieter oder einen Onlineshop? Als die Antriebswelle hin war, wollte PV schlanke 440 Euro dafür. Bei DUC waren es noch 200, aber immerhin.
