This will not work! I tried this one myself with the same years involved on the advice of a chrysler dealer tech that it would work byswapping the upper intake. He was dead wrong. The crankshaft positioning sensor is in a different spot on the block and the lobe it reads on the crank is also different. It can not read correctly to time the engine. You cant swap the computers to make this work either, and also the o3 does not have an egr valve and the 01 does. It all comes down to the computer cannot read key components of this engine. An 01 and 02 are the only years that will fit your car.

What you need is a Hollander book that tells you what the difference is in the engines there may be just little diff and it will tell you what you can swap .
and most salvage yard have these books and dont charge to look it up for you.
and dont let someone guess and say yes and then you have to go back and change so importaint part.
later

Use the correct champion plugs for starters, make sure the wire is firing. If the wire is firing, the coil pack is good. You will need to check compression and fuel delivery after that.

2001 PT Cruiser


Car overheats then engine dies going down hill coasting. When try to start, starter spins as if no gas or fire to the plugs. Can this be a sensor flipped by too much heat or lack of coolant ? If so, how do you reset the sensor ?
