you know I said like...not definitive with the picture I posted.

Having worked on so many vehicles over time I have seen tools, bolts,nails wood screw,watches,wires,hoses,bits and pieces of unknown parts etc. and even a Twinkie drop out from under the vehicle when I have worked on them. There is no guarantee that the fastener you found even belonged to your PT Cruiser.

The photo below is my GT turbo engine. But look at the bolt hole in the cylinder head just to the left of the blow off valve (with the blue). If I remember correctly, some NA engines have a stud bolt like yours in that or a nearby hole that is used to secure the steel line that runs along that side of the head. When changing the cam sensor, it may get taken loose so the steel line can be moved. And if not put back, it might have just been hanging there in the bracket on the steel line ready to fall at some point.

Like I said before, there's several bolts like this on or near the PT engine. But at least this is one more place to check.

True that but with Gottogo's post questioning if it was really the Positive post, I wanted him to be sure (with the sticker poster) that he knew exactly which bolt you were talking about.

Completely clean no oil. How many PT Cruiser's engines are that clean.

Look again at his original post.

Looks like a mounting stud of some kind.

Anybody recognize it?

EDITED: No. Too small to be the rear lower strut mount bolt.

PS: That bolt is steel with a tin/zinc plating. You can polish it to look shiny using a wire wheel. And it stays shiny. That means mostly zinc and little or no tin in the mix. It's the same material used in many bolts in many locations on the PT.

It looks very similar to the stud that the grounding wires attach to on the inner driver side fender. He said there was some battery work done recently, perhaps someone took it off to clean the wires and forgot to put it back?

That's the best guess I've heard so far. I wonder if the OP is getting all this.

while this is too small comparing the OPs picture in the first thread there are other similar fasteners on the PT 2.4 engine. But even with my fairly clean engine you can still see some dirt and oil in and around the engine compartment.

The OP's burred picture appears to be a very clean fastener.

Enough guessing. Hope the op finds where it came from.
