Question about 2003 Chrysler PT Cruiser

1 Answer

Hesitation I have a 2003 Chrysler PT Cruiser... I get a "hesitation" on acceleration... Even though my car is 5 years old it has only got 26,500 miles on it... (I have seen the carfax report). I have had the car for a little over a year and it has only been doing this a few months... It has never stalled and never failed to crack.... Do you have any idea where I need to start to get this problem fixed. I am a female but I have worked on cars before from changing starters and alternators to helping change a head gasket so i am familiar enough with cars to do the work myself. i just have never really done too much diagnosing. There are no warning lights lit up on the dash. Thanks so much for your help... Sherry

I would suspect the anti roll bar bushes but i would need to get it up a ramp and have a probe with a long bar ,ask a local mechanic to have a look as i dont think its serious although if you dont know what it is then it can be worrying ,another cause can be the lower track control arm bush the back one either way its not a expensive repair

Does the vehicle turn off, run rough, or hesitate?

It sounds as though you have a faulty Idle Air Control Valve".

2003 PT Cruiser turbo. Has just 67k miles on it. Just began making a low pitched loud whistle sound on acceleration or load/uphill. Gets louder with greater acceleration/load, no decrease in power.


I took my car to Keller's Auto Repair in Gettysburg PA, He specializes in Chryslers. I have 04 Cruiser with 2.4 Turbo that had the same whistle noise, and check engine light on. He found code P0301. The noise was caused by the #1 Cylinder injector O ring. Check them out on facebook. They will help you.

I have pt cruiser 2.4 manual. Why am i only getting 25 mpg. 31.000 miles on clock


The government fuel economy specs for your year PT Cruiser are between 24 and 26 mpg highway, depending on what transmission you have (auto, 4spd standard, 5 spd standard), so you are getting what you should. Unfortunately, the PT Cruiser can't do any better than that. It does seem that a car that size would do better, but Chrysler needs to improve gas consumption on all it's vehicles, that is one reason they are in such trouble now.
