Question about 2006 Chrysler PT Cruiser

1 Answer

2006 pt cruiser idles high with no pcv valve hose connected

Changed the head gasket on the engine. When all back together the engine would not start unless the hose to the pcv valve was pulled. Engine starts and idles high, but when pcv valve hose connected back the engine dies. Computer said cam shaft or crank shaft sensor was the problem. Changed them both and computer says the same. Engine runs great with the hose off the pcv valve. Any suggestions to get this car running smooth with hose to pcv valve connected and check engine light to go off?

Replace the PVC valve, it's probably clogged.

Good Day, my Corsa is got a high Idling and replaced all sensors on intake and throttle. Still Idling high and workshop light came on. What can the problem be. Please assist me - Thank you.


The cause of high idle are vacuum leaks or a bad or dirty Idle air control. Check pcv valve to see if its working properly. pinch off the hose that supplies the PCV valve. The engine speed should drop slightly. If the engine returns to a normal idle speed, the PCV valve should be replaced. The Idle air control regulates engine rpms.

How do you adjust an idle control valve on a 2001 pt cruiser 2.4?


The Idle Air Control (IAC) on a 2001 Chrysler PT Cruiser is controlled by the Powertrain Control Module (PCM). There are no mechanical adjustments. If your engine is not idling correctly, There is a problem with your engine control system that must be diagnosed. If it is idling too high, the most likely cause is vacuum leaks.

Idle goes up and down, check engine light on, brakes hard to push


Check engine for vacuum leaks at all hoses, hose connections, intake gasket etc. I have also seen retarded engine timing produce low vacuum. If no leaks, check anything in control system that controls timing...however, I believe you will find a leak before you need to go there. Also check Idle control valve and egr valve for malfunction or blockages.

Vacuum leaks. Check all hoses and intake bolts. Leaking EGR or plugged PCV valve. Air filter plugged. Leaking head gasket. Worn timing chain. Camshaft lobes worn. Valves burned or leaking. Fuel idle control system or sensor. Good luck!
