    Have you tried it in neutral ? Could be the starter relay or the neutral safety switch.

SOURCE: Change the thermostat on 2002 Chrysler PT Cruiser

Hi, i have put together a step by step guide that will help you with this replacement job. Make sure the vehicle is in a cool state before starting this job.


* Drain some coolant into a clean container until the coolant level is below the thermostat housing.
* Remove the upper radiator hose connection from the thermostat housing.
* Loosen the housing bolts and remove the housing.
* Remove the gasket and scrape it carefully from the surface of the housing and the mounting surface on the engine. If the gasket remains on either of the surfaces, there will probably bea coolant leak after reassembly. Some engines use a rubber O-ring to seal a thermostat housing.
* Compare the size of the thermostat to the old one. They are of different sizes, types, and temperature ratings.
* The temperature rating is stamped on the sensing bulb on the bottom of the thermostat. The temperature bulb faces the block.
* When replacing a thermostat, be sure that the thermostat fits into the groove in the block or outlet housing. If the thermostat is installed upside down, the engine will overheat.
* Install the gasket.
* Reinstall the thermostat housing. Refill the system and run the engine or pressure test to check for leaks.
* When the engine has reached operating temperature make sure the thermostat opens.
* You should be able to see coolant circulating within the radiator.
* Another way of checking thermostat operation is to feel the top of the radiator hose or use a thermometer or multimeter with a temperature probe to confirm that the coolant is warming up.
* If the engine is overheating, but the top hose is still cool to the touch, the thermostat is stuck closed and must be replaced.

NOTE
When a paper gasket is used and the recess is in the thermostat housing, it is a good practice to position the thermostat into the recess and glue the gasket to hold it in place. If it falls out of its groove during installation, the outlet housing can be cracked or a coolant leak will result. Before tightening the water outlet housing, try to rock it back and forth to be sure it is flush. Housings are often cracked during this step.

Remove battery and battery support you'll be able to undo starter bolt's trough there and slip starter out.

Testimonial: "This didn't help, because you had to remove the engine structural collar under the starter to get at the starter bolt. It was more complicated."

04 PT Cruiser will only start after sitting like 10 hours or more but once u shut it back off will not start back up till another 10 hours Checked starter alternator and fuses. What could it be


Does the engine crank, but not start or will it not crank?

If not cranking, test battery, clean post and check wires for corrosion and good contact. Also check the ground wire between the engine block and the car body for good contact. If all good there, may be a problem in the ignition switch.

If the engine cranks but will not start, check the pressure on the fuel rail. If good pressure, check the ignition module.

2001 pt cruiser was diving down the road and just shut off will not start


If it turns over (cranks) but does not start, it is almost surly a bad crank sensor. Check to see if your tachometer moves when cranking the engine-if it does not, install a crank sensor.

I have to pump the gas alot to start my 2005 pt cruiser


You may not believe what I am going to say, but pumping the gas pedal does nothing to make the engine start.
The throttle position sensor does not start sending a signal to the computer until after the engine starts.
However, cranking the engine for an extended period of time could have an effect. If the fuel pressure is low, cranking the engine would build it back up to normal.
I would suggest you have the fuel pressure checked before and after the first attempt of the day. The car would need to sit overnight for the first test.

2004 pt cruiser won't start sometimes after you


Good chance fuel pump is getting hot and has to cool down before pumping back up to required pressure. I had to test fuel pressure when cool, then when hot to catch drop in pressure. Are you having any problems with how far you can drive before it quits, or starts to get sluggish?

Car died at the stoplight. Oil light came on.


Probably blowed it. Sorry to say. You can continue to crank it but it probably already seized a bearing. Run a pressure check on the oil.
