Question about 2002 Chrysler PT Cruiser
One day started the car and heard a loud knocking noise. Got worse with exceleration. Oil levels and other things were good. Drove it a few times and the noise was less. Then noise stopped and the car died. Hearing only a whirring noise when trying to start it.
Theres a neoprene chain keeper inside front engine cover if that was broke loose in there it might have wore your belt to the point that it broke

SOURCE: Hello I have a 2002
Hi, here is what you don't want to hear...A loud knocking noise from inside your engine is generally caused by a crank or rod bearing...when caught very early, sometimes they can be replaced. however, once the noise is loud, the attending crankshaft journal gets "hammered" out of shape and the job becomes very expensive and in most cases more costly than engine replacement. There is one other item that can cause a loud knock...your flywheel. Bearing problems generally cause low oil pressure. If you have that, it's gone...if not, have the flywheel checked before sending the engine to the scrapyard.

this is an interference engine. Make sure you have timing marks lined up correctly. if so then you have bent valves.As far as rebuilding or replacing it all depends on your skill level and if you want a warranty or not. Using a reman engine from jasper would come with a 3yr 75k mile warranty parts and labor. where as rebuilding your self would have none.

I had the same issue that has evolved into the car starting and idling for 2-3 seconds then stalling. After doing this five times it won't turn over at all. All the dash lights are on but no turn over. After the car sits for appoximately 15-30 minutes, it starts and runs fine for 3-4 weeks then does it again. I was told this is due to the camshaft and crank position sensors needing replaced.
