Re: May have figured out what my ticking sound is

If it is an exhaust leak it shouldn't cause any damage short term. Just drive it easy.

An exhaust leak can be pinpointed easily using a stethoscope. Or use a length of say 3/8" diameter hose,...

Re: No heat

Check the coolant level. It should be filled up to the top under the radiator cap. Check when the engine is cold.

Re: Engine vibration at idle.

The map sensor is one of the controls for the EGR valve.

Check the wiring harness over the driveshaft. Early PT harnesses sometime sag and wear thru the plastic insulation and cause intermittent...

Re: Marine power 454 tbi

'my bad motor is now my good motor' ? Bad gas??

You'll have to educate yourself on the way the fuel/ignition systems operate. Does the ECU operate the fuel only or does it operate the fuel and the...

Re: 2008 PT Cruiser Radio Accessory fuse location.

Fuse # 20 [15 A] goes to the radio.
Fuse # 7 [30 A] also feeds it.
They are in the TIPM.

Re: Old Head Gasket Looks So-So?

I replaced a head gasket on a 2.5 Mopar. The cast iron block surface had little corrosion and cleaned up nicely. The aluminum head was pitted. I brought it to a machine shop, the owner said it looked...

Re: Functioning, But Not Very Cold A/C

It is important to state the year of your car. The 2001 - 2005 cars are slightly different than the 2006 and up cars as to how the AC works. Mine is a 2006. When the car is cold and I start it up and...

Re: Head Bolts Stuck?

The reason I suggested using a torque wrench for removing a head bolt is that it gives a general idea or 'feel' to someone who is new to the game. After some practice, people get a sense of the...

Re: Still trying to fix steering vibration

I'd recommend buying a Haynes manual for PT Cruisers. About $20 - $30 bucks. It has a good diagram for the 4.72" [or 119 MM] dimension.

Pounding the outer axle outward is good. Pulling off the...

First, I'd recommend buying a Haynes PT repair manual. $20 - $30 bucks. They have a nice diagram for the 4.72" dimension. Or search this site for that or 119 MM dimension.

Re: Still trying to fix steering vibration

Check the 4.72" dimension for the motor struts, as this may be a partial problem.

Rob stated the slop of the inner CV joint splines seemed excessive [from your video]. I agree. The splines of the...

Re: 2006 PT Cruiser No Headlights

There is a myth going around that early PT Cruisers don't have the TIPM/CANBUS system. This is false. Mine door sticker is dated 8-2005, and has the TIPM. Imagine the confusion of parts manuals,...

Re: Transmission fluid math problem

I also agree with the confusion of using the word flush. I associate the word flush with a toilet. You can watch the bad water disappear and then be replaced by the good water. In an auto trans, the...

Fan and Radiator Operation

This applies to 2006 to 2010 PT Cruisers. There are sensors and switches that send information to the engine computer [PCM --power control module]. The PCM decides if the fan should be on low speed,...

Re: Sqeak and thud noise

Sorry for the confusion, I should have said tie rod ends and ball joints should be changed ASAP --- IF they are worn [bad].

To check ball joints, drive the car up on ramps or planks. Put in park...

Re: A/C and no low speed fan operation

This video is confusing and misleading. There are better explanations on this site. An ASE patch sewn onto a shirt has questionable value.

Re: Sqeak and thud noise

The bushing is contained by a chunk of rubber. As long as the rubber is there, the bolt is protected and the steering won't be affected much. The bushing flange will drop down and rub on the frame...

Re: A/C and no low speed fan operation

Mine is a 2006. My AC is working well. The first thing to check is the coolant level. When the engine is cold, pop the hood and remove the radiator cap. It should be right up to the top. The plastic...

Re: PT Cruisers of S.E. Michigan

You should check the motor mount struts. Its a common issue, as the rubber deteriorates with time and use. If one is bad, change both the upper and lower struts. Then tilt the motor to get the 4.7"...

When I inspected the timing belt on mine, the belt was just about flush with the camshaft timing sprockets.

Re: What is this part?

Some seals have a flat large thin metal 'washer' built into them. And it may be hidden by the rubber [neoprene] material around it. A pic would be helpful.

Re: Should motor move while idling?

EXCELLENT video. A 6 inch long piece of wood [like a 2 x 4] can be used between the jack and the tranny flange [as shown in the video].
