Question about 2002 Chrysler PT Cruiser

1 Answer

Breaks pulsing My breaks pulse when I stop. They fell like they might not stop the car. If I pulse the peddle it helps. Almost like the engine needs more time to wind down so the car doesnt jump forward after stopping. I do have abs and know that pulsing the breaks is wrong, but its the only way to eliminate the shaky stop. I have new pads and the rotters are not warped and were turned 6 months ago. What could be the problem?

    no the light does not come on. Im assuming it was turned to specs I took them to a local break shop. Im leaning twords bad rotters it really seams from what I read that this problem isnt related to abs. Ive heard that ceramic pads are not the best and maybe I should try slotted rotters?

Does the abs light come on when pulsating? if yes then maybe you have a bad ABS sensor or it just the sensors cleaned . Where they turned under spec .which means more likely to heat up and warp or crack

    see i never turn rotors anymore so cheap to replace and with new rotors that give you that extra thickness that reduces the amount of pad wear and better stopping .

Engine turns over but my Saab 900i s won't start, and fuel not getting into engine, but, I have nearly half a tank, can the crank sensor stop the injectors from sending fuel into engine?


Yes, it will. The crank sensor sends pulses to the vehicle computer, which uses them to synchronize the firing of the injectors with the rotation of the engine. If there is no input from the crank sensor, there will be no injector pulse and no spark pulse.

1989 caprice with 350 tbi injectors won't pulse anymore


If you have spark, the computer is getting the signal to pulse the injectors.
If you have power but no ground pulse, you may have fried the driver in the computer again.
You could get a used computer from a junk yard to test it.
There could be a short in one of the injectors or the harness at the computer, or a break in the circuit from the computer, and that could kill the driver in the computer.

I went out to start my car this morning and it would not start. I understand that it takes a bit longer to start in cold temperatures (which it was this morning). I have had a problem starting the car...


It may be but not for sure. Your oil pump may have gone bad. I would check the engine and see if you have a leak somewhere around the belt. Has your check engine light came on any? If so, you need to get it scanned for codes. Autozone and other part stores offer the same service. When you say pulse, are you meaning it takes off without you pressing it down?

I washed the engine with water and now the ESP system is not working. the engine does'nt respon to the gas peddle being pusded. It starts and stopsand when it does'nt stop it idles and seems to pulse,...


hi!
Washing the engine is always a big mistake because the water gets the sensors and all the electronics that shouldn't be get wet. all I can say is try to dry the engine with Air. Good luck

2002 crystler pt cruiser pulsing breaks


yes the rotors may only be 6 mo old, but it does not mean they didn't become warped in this little bit of time! try to think back if u had to slam on the brakes at some time to avoid some thing and hitting a big puddle of water and then hitting the brakes hard can warp them easily, i bet if u have them checked u will find they have become warped! ( could also be the quality of parts, it does happen) good luck to u,hope we helped.
