Question about 2004 Chrysler PT Cruiser

1 Answer

I had engine diagnostic done and still don't know whats wrong

I have engine light on and car hick ups while car was idling so I took to aamco to get free diagnostic. The determination was that I need to pay $158 for a 2 hours diagnostic. The engine code PO138 was not conclusivel enough to determine the real problem that needs to be fixed. I was told I need to do this $158 diagnostic just to get an estimate of the work to be done. The other comment was that the 1-2 O2censor voltage high.

Check engine light on


you would need to take it in for a diagnostic check. it could be as simple as not putting the gas cap on correctly, to having a damaged/worn catalytic converter. only a diagnostic tool would be able to detect what the problem is.

97 eagle talon shakes on idle and bucks while picking up speed and engine light is flashing occasionally


This could be many things from the catalytic converter, to needing a tune up, vacuum hose, fuel pump, injectors or O2 sensors. My advice would be to go to Aamco and get their 89.00 check up. They will diagnose, quote and tell you what is wrong without a commitment on your part. Pretty cheap over all if you are a do it yourselfer and they will gladly fix it for you if you change your mind or just do the parts that you don't want to tackle.

Engine turns off when put in gear


Have you had the electronic engine control system scanned/tested for fault codes? it will need to be scanned to obtain the fault codes, this is key to finding out what the problem may be that is causing the stall. The fault code test can be done free of charge by any Autozone auto parts store, Aamco transmission or Kragen/Oriley auto parts store. Ask for a "OBD2" (on board diagnostics generation 2) fault code test. You will also need what is called an active test run of the OBD2 system, this picks up problems with the automatic idle speed system control. You will need the dealer or a good shop to run that test, it is called a KOER (key on engine runing) test, the free test is a KOEO (key on engine off) test.

Truck should not be driven when the check engine light flashes, means you have something very wrong. Take it to a place like Autozone, they will check the code (check engine light) for free. There will be a code on the print out they give you, starts with Pxxxx. Let me know what the code is. What was done when you did the tune up?

My engine management light as come on and i lack power what does it mean


Hello. In order to find out why that light is on you have to have your car's computer scanned. AAMCO repair shops and many auto parts stores now scan for free. Do that first. It will tell you why you lack power. Joe

The engine revs up when its is idling


Sounds like either an idle air control valve or a TPS sensor. These items will cause a check engine light to come on as well.. I recommend heading to an AUTOZONE or an AAMCO and you can get the check engine light checked for free. Hopefully you dont live in California cause then you can only go to AAMCO cause AUTOZONE cant do it in California. Good luck

I have a 1996 dodge caravan 3.3 v6 check engine light comes on while your driving and dies qieit often what can i do to fix that myself ?


You can purchase a code reader for around $50 on ebay. This will allow you to read the computer code and look that up to see why the check engine light is on. Auto Zone, AAMCO, and other places will read the codes for you for free. I would start there.

Prior to that, check your gas cap to ensure that Habib tightened it properly. That will throw a code. If it was loose, tighten it and the light may go out by itself.
