SOURCE: PT Cruiser Brake Light

The bulb in the rear light has burned out and to replace it follow these instructions: 1) go to your owner's manual to find out the part number. You can find and purchase the replacement bulb at Target, any auto parts store and even at Walmart for under $4.00; 2) pop open the trunk door; 3) get a phillips screw driver and unscrew the 2 screws holding the rear brake light fixture to your car body; 4) as soon as you turn over the fixture you'll see where to pull out the burned out bulb and replace it with the new one(s). Good luck!

SOURCE: sputtering on accelerations

If no check engine light is on, I would try to replace the coil pack first. Usually on these cars a drop in fuel pressure associated with a bad fuel pump should throw a code.

My 2003 PT CRuiser turns over to start but won't


I would start by checking fuel pressure with a gauge, and scanning the computer for trouble codes.
Low fuel pressure or a problem with the pump could cause the issue, as well as sensors such as the throttle position or engine temp sensor.

Just had the timing belt changed for my 2004 pt cruiser and the engine is making load rattling noise.


Hopefully something is just loose and rattling around. The bad alternative is that the timing belt job was botched. I would not drive the car , get the mechanic to come over and find the problem , or he can tow it back to his shop at his expense.

Where's the adjustment for the timing belt on the 2003 pt cruiser??


Its not really adjustable. The timing belt is under a plastic cover on the face of the engine(passenger side end of the engine) It has two upper gears for the cams, a tensioner, rollers,and the lower gear for the crank. These are set with the timing marks on these three gears, The tensioner takes up the slack and they cant even be one tooth off. Its not easy to get to this shy of pulling the motor, so if the car is running at all I doubt its timing trouble unless its something to do with cam or crank sensors. If the car isnt running, and sounds funny when you turn it over, like it rolls over to fast or it rolls a few times and then locks up, Your timing belt is probably broke. Hope this helps, Clay

assuming you have checked the trans oil and it is full, it sounds like you need to take it to a good trans shop and have it looked at. it could be something simple or something major and expensive

Motor mounts


Most motor mounts are basically a piece of rubber attached to a piece of metal. Rubber just dries out after time and begins to crack off. Accelerating hard can speed up this process.
