  1. PT Cruiser
    Hello, so some of you may have seen my post about my 02 PT having low compression on a cylinder, so I'm starting to research pulling the engine out and getting a used engine for it. What's the best way to get the engine out from the top? I don't want to do it from the bottom as I don't have a...
  2. PT Cruiser
    Question today on my 02 PT she overheated pretty bad. The fan is the culprit. Im going to trouble shoot if it's the actual fan motor itself or the wiring. I pulled over in the closest safe spot and the car was in the red "H" zone for under a minute total but it was steaming clouds of steam and...

    Hello, today I decided to fix my PT's exhaust leak, but while under there I noticed that the upper section of the exhaust as shown in the video is being hung up by wire. Where is an actual hanger supposed to be? The only 2 places it was hung in a factory hanger was in the rear by the muffler...

    Hello, so on my new automatic 02 PT with 140k miles I decided to do a compression test today, just to get a slight idea of the engine's health. It runs decent with a possible slight idle misfire. Cylinder's 1-3 all good at 150-155psi compression. However, cylinder 4 is down quite a lot. In the...

    Hello all! A few days ago I bought an automatic 02 PT Cruiser with 138k miles after selling my manual one that had over 200k! The car has been smooth sailing so far, just put in new shocks to replace the horribly bouncy OEM ones. However, I'm noticing a slight steering problem. The steering...

    Hey, so I've been having this problem with my 04 N/A PT Cruiser 5 speed manual since I got it last year, and cannot figure it out. I explain in the video pretty much whats going on but to sum it up when I let off the gas pedal(and sometimes when I press it) the vehicle jerks repeatedly and it...
  7. PT Cruiser
    Hello, so this week I went to go replace the sway bar bushings. To sum it up its been a disaster... 3 out of 4 of the bracket bolts broke and the 4th is rounded off. So I drilled out 2 of the holes in hopes to get a bolt and nut onto it, however realized that wouldn't work because there's no...

  11. PT Cruiser
    Hi, so on my 2004 PT Cruiser I’m noticing very small amounts of coolant by the belt, which is getting into the belt and making it nice and squeaky. I’m aware I may have to replace the belt now, but I want to fix the small coolant leak before that for obvious reasons. In the picture attached I...
