Question about 2001 Chrysler PT Cruiser
I have a 2007 PT cruiser and i have 21000 miles on it , i disregarded the oil consumption problem , but now i have another problem which is the engine sound. when the car starts the engine sound is normal but as soon as the cooling fan starts the engine sounds becomes very high .. and also when i start to reveres i feel the engine vibrates too much in the steering wheel. i was told it is one of the engine supports that's faulty ( a brand new car !!! ). the other problem is my steering wheel , it is supposed to be a hydraulically powered steering wheel , and it just does not feel like it .. this is my first American car , and i am having a very bad experience with American automobiles compared to German and Japanese
I appreciate the support and any information you can provide me ..
Your car is still under factory warranty ...if you are not getting any satisfaction from the dealer there is a customer service number in the owners manual so that you may contact chrysler..as a chrysler tech i know of no related situations.

I would expect this car to be under warranty.
The cooling fan seems to be making the sound you don't like. If the bearings are going out, that would explain the noise. I would connect and disconnect the fan and see if the noise came and went. If the noise were related to the engine , it would vary with engine speed.
Disregarding "oil" problems will leave you stranded at the side of some road. Where did you get this car ?
Have you checked the power steering fluid reservoir to make sure it is full ?
The engine is not connected to the steering wheel directly, so if your steering wheel is vibrating excessively while you are stationary , a) the engine is severely unbalanced or b) the power steering is screwed up.
