SOURCE: where is the input speed sensor 2002 pt cruiser

The input speed sensor is just under$30.00 at the dealer and it should take you less time to replace it then to find it. The sensor is on the transmission under the battery tray closes to the engine. There are two sensors and the other one is the vehicle velocity sensor which is the one furthest from the engine block. Your going to need a 1' socket to remove the sensor and extension and a swivel. Find the solenoid pack connector on the transmission which is under the battery tray and right above that should be the input sensor. Un-clip the wire lead to the sensor and remove the sensor, install new sensor and re-clip the wire lead and re-install anything you need to remove to get to the sensor. Good luck and keep me posted, it may be easier to go from the bottom of the cruiser.

SOURCE: '05 PT Cruiser O2 sensor problems.

I had a similar problem with my car. It turned out the O2 sensors were fine and the issue was a leak in the throttle body causing the engine to run lean. If you have an ODB2 scanner you can look at fuel trims, etc and will be able to tell.

It sounds like the module is in limp mode. The speed sensor is most likely the cause, but it can be some other things as well. A scan will give a code stating the problem area.

The speed sensors are on the side of the trasmission that faces the front of the vehicle. There are 2 of them, and they are the same sensor. One is an input speed sensor located closest to the engine, the other is the output speed sensor.

ROUGH SHIFTING PT CRUISER


Some modern vehicles when change the shift pattern while the engine is cold, by keeping the vehicle in a lower gear for a higher rpm while the engine is cold, the engine warms up faster, to reduce emissions. (Emissions are higher while the vehicle is cold)

What you may be experiencing is that the shift from first to second occurs at a higher rpm when the engine is cold than when warm. This can lead to an abrupt or hard shift. At higher speeds, the shift between gears either may not be changed, or just does not feel as hard as the 1st to 2nd shift.

If this is the case, then your dealer is telling you the truth and there is nothing he can do.
