Question about 2004 Chrysler PT Cruiser
My pt did the same thing. took it to another mechanic, and he told me they left the timing off. took it back and told them what the mechanic told me, and they set the timing straight. Now it runs great.

HEY EVERYONE.... SORRY FOR THE CAPS BUT I FINALLY FOUND SOMEONE WITH A BRAIN AND GOT THIS PROBLEM FIXED FOR FREE!!!!!!!! Now I have about 20 forums to go back to and save hundreds of PT Cruiser Owners the time money and aggrevation we have all experienced.
I have to give my friend John (now in my opinion the best auto mechanic in South Florida) the credit. Took him 10 minutes to give me the answer, took several Chrysler dealerships about 5 visits and weeks of diagnostics to finnaly agree with him!

At the base of the antenna, take a small crescent wrench or pliers and unscrew the antenna from the mounting bracket. Any Chrysler dealer should have a replacement antenna.

I AM A CHRYSLER PARTS/SERVICE MANAGER AND HAVE SEEN THESE TURBOS BLOW INTAKE TO PLENUM GASKETS. WE ARE A SMALL DEALER AND HAVE SEEN 3 HAPPEN AND ALSO WAS VERY DIFFICULT TO DIAGNOSE. WE WERE ABOUT TO PULL THE HEAD ON ONE WHEN WE FOUND THE GASKET SUCKED IN. PART IS CHEAP AND REPAIR NOT TERRIBLE .HAVE YOUR TECH SPRAY CLEANER AROUND SEAM BETWEEN INTAKE AND PLENUM ENGINE SHOULD DIE DOWN WHEN YOU HIT THE LEAK

Not for the beginner, I will be doing one on monday. 2001 Twin Cam.
I have been in repair for 30 years, I would not let anyone with less than 5 years experience touch it. This motor has the potential to bend valves if out of time between the cams and crank.
Changing the right side mount too. 10 hours according to the book (all data) and thats for someone that knows how.
