Question about 2002 Chrysler PT Cruiser
Was driving and heard a knock sound. pulled over checked fluids such as oil and coolant was low. added coolant and started driving again. The car wanted to stall at red lights, I noticed a lot of smoke coming out the back of the car at the red light. So I pulled over and checked the fluids again. I had to add more coolant. Started to drive again and heard knocking again pulled over and the car never started again after that. The check engine light turns on when you put the key to the run position. The light then flashes 10 times and stays on. The oil light stays on as well. please help me. Thanks Chuck
Pulling the plugs is a pain, but not as bad as it looks. You have to remove the upper intake by disconnecting the egr tube(two small bolts hold it at the rear of the intake), pull a couple vacum lines, then disconnect the small row of retaining bolts at the front holding the upper intake to the lower. These have all rubber resuable gaskets in the intake ports so you dont even have to buy new ones. You should be able to acess the two outside plugs without pulling the intake if you only need to check for coolant on the plugs, but if your changing the head gasket all this **** has to come off anyway. Good Luck.
