    Did you fix your flat spot?
    We have the same issue at 2200rpm in the Wife's PT. All the new stuff we toss at it makes no difference.

My '01 impala 3.4 v-6 flat spots when COLD, at around 20mph. the idle is ruff with random misfires. acceleration is overall poor. when HOT, most symptoms go away leaving only some slight acceleration...


depending on mileage, but possible tune-up could fix it. if already done then check ignition coil pack and ignition wires also spark plugs, check vacuum hoses for leaks or porous, last injectors clogged - use some techron fuel injector cleaner (wal-mart has them). Also get the throttle body and iac valve cleaned by throttle cleaner . Also this other possibilities are to be checked and confirmed.:---- Engine running rough or misfiring can be cause by the following:

1.Defective spark plugs
2.Inadequate spark/coil, defective spark plug wire.
3. Lack of compression
4.False air leakage.
5. Faulty fuel injectors.
6. Insufficient fuel pressure.
7. Contaminated fuel.
8. EGR valve that is leaking.
9. Oxygen sensors.
10. Throttle position sensor.
11. Manifold absolute pressure sensor
12.Mass Airflow Sensor
13.Idle air control valve

--------- This should help.Keep updated.Thanks.Helpmech.

How do you remove the spark plugs in a 2008 automatic chrysler pt cruiser? Do you have to remove the manifold and replace the gasket to change the spark plugs?


I think you can reuse the gasket (rubber) just take out the bolts and position it out of the way enough to get plugs in and out. Be sure to replace the timing belt, tensioner and water pump at 90k miles....or youll be sorry.

Sputtering on accelerations


If no check engine light is on, I would try to replace the coil pack first. Usually on these cars a drop in fuel pressure associated with a bad fuel pump should throw a code.

NOTE: Refer to Section 1 of this manual for the intake manifold torque sequence illustration. The illustration is located after the Torque Specification Chart.
  8. Install or connect the following:
    • New gasket and manifold. Torque the nuts in sequence to 22 ft. lbs. (30 Nm).
    • Power steering pump. Torque the fasteners to 27 ft. lbs. (38 Nm).
    • Drive belt.

    • Fuel line(s) in the retaining bracket. Torque the mounting screw to 36 inch lbs. (4 Nm).
    • Throttle cable to the throttle body and attach the accelerator cable bracket. Torque the bolts to 22 ft. lbs. (30 Nm).
    • Reposition the wiring harness and connect the wiring and vacuum hoses to their original locations. The harness leads to the TP sensor and EGR solenoid must be routed between the intake manifold runners.
    • Negative battery cable
  9. Fill the coolant system.
  10. Prime the fuel system by cycling the ignition ON for 5 seconds and OFF for 10 seconds a few times without cranking the engine.
