SOURCE: were is the air bleed valve for the cooling system

Usually on or near thermostat housing, but if you can't locate it, leaving rad cap off & heater on & rev engine slightly, once in a while, and wait until rad fan comes on & off 2 or 3 times & you should be good. Top up, install cap, top up bottle.

SOURCE: replace EGR valve on a PT Cruiser

The valve is located just above where the engine and transmission seam meets. There is the metal exhaust gas tube with 2x8mm bolts and a fiber gasket. The EGR mounts to the cylinder head with 2 10mm bolts and a metal gasket. There are 2 vacuum lines that go to the control solenoid, a black plastic pod moounted under the throttle body. It clips into the TB mounting bracket, and has a 3rd vacuum supply line and 1 electrical connector.

SOURCE: what are the typical symptoms of a bad egr valve

A vacuum leak at the egr valve can cause rough idle and almost stalling condition.

A non functioning egr valve that is plugged up won't affect driveability, but NOx will be in the exhaust at normal operating temperature which may not be good for an emissions test if they test for that in your area.

Good luck on this repair.

Timing belt replaced on 2002 PT cruiser which idles roughly


Yes,your 2.4 engine is a interference engine,the mechanic should of showed you the bent valves and not installed the timing belt.Did he tell you they were bent when you paid or you found out after you drove home.I would go back and demand money back,if he's won't pay back,go to the BBB and report him and take him to small claims court,your engine is bad.

Y wife was driving our 04 pt cruiser and it stalled at alight, then a stop sign but started back up. Then a few miles later she pulled over to the side to let someone pass and the low rpm's made it stall...


Will not make any noise when valve's get bent, piston just hit's it enough to bent then, this is an interference engine, which the possibility of piston to valve damage in the event of timing belt failure is most likely to occur, also while in there doing repair's, I would also replace water pump, due to it's timing belt driven.

How do you put on a timing belt for a 2002 pt


hi from uk could you please verify ? you intend to diy cambelt change ? also has belt been removed already ? or has belt failed/broken ? the belt change is not too difficult to change/renew and is advisable to renew belt and tensioner and the water pump too as it is driven by c/belt to eliminate having to strip down again in near future due to possible pump faiure/leaking ? belt replacement is approx120'000miles or 8 years service ? however if belt has failed ?? then as this engine is what is known as interferance this means there will be piston/s to valves contact resulting in possible valves damage/bent ? the renewal of c/belt etc should take approx 3 hrs if you are confident/tooled and would save $$$$

The timing belt in my 2001 pt cruiser is broken. Did this cause any damage to the engine? or do we just need to replace the timing belt


Its got damage, bent valves. replace every thing on timing belt, tensioner, pulleys, water pump. The head needs to go to a machine shop and bent valves replaced.

The timing belt belt broke on my daughters 2003 PT Cruiser> I changed it but now the car won't even attempt to start. A chrysler mechanic timed and ansalled the belt.


did they checked if the valves are alright on your cylinder head? i dont know if this model in particular has that design but a lot of cars that lose timing on the distribuition get their valves bent by the piston head when the timing is lost.
hope this helps?

Timing belt broke changed it engine is missing. could it be


The easiest way to test this is to carry out a compression test. This test will determine if any valves are bent. The test is very easy to carry out. 1.obtain a compression tester. 2. remove all spark plugs. 3. screw tester into spark plug hole. 4. with your foot on the accelarator, crank engine. 5. read the tester reading and write it down. eg. cyl 1 175psi cyl.2 170psi etc. if you have a bent valve one cylinder will be very low compared to the rest.
