There is a possibility that the oil pressure sensor wire located on the engine block is either incorrectly fitted or the wire is off completely and touches an earth (negative) source, causing your warning light to occasionally flicker

SOURCE: oil light keeps coming on and beeps

This is the pressure light, nothing to do with the oil needing to be being changed, you have low oil pressure being indicated, this will destroy the engine if the light is really indicating low oil pressure, have the oil pressure tested with a mechanical test guage at a shop, if the oil pressure is ok then replace the oil pressure light sending unit.

SOURCE: anyone know a cheep but effective way of fixing blown head gasket

i really hate to tell you this but it sounds like you all ready know what the worst is! it's all the classic signs of a bad head gasket, caused by over heating, and the head or heads become warped, a classic problem with 4.6 engines if they become to hot to long, not a cheap fix as i believe you know, what i would do is take it to cadillac dealer and let them give you an estimate,its free and get another just for the heck of it. good luck to you, wish i had quick fix but their are none!

SOURCE: will a pt cruiser run perfectly fine with a blown head gasket.lots of white smoke,but runs fine

If i remember right the color of the smoke will tell you what it is and i think blue smoke is water getting into the combustion chamber. The car can run like this for a while. Lots of times the car will run like normal besides the smoke. But the passage in the gasket will continue to get bigger and lead to more serious problems.

SOURCE: 2004 pt cruiser keeps setting DTC's P0032 & P0038 ,sensors have been replaced with NTK

Hello, First, you have to clear some of the Codes with a scanner or wait after 25-35 start-ups for the information to cycle out of the system.

Next, make sure you have replaced the correct Bank or lower or upper sensor when there can be 4 sensors on the exhaust.

The wiring running to your sensors may be bad. Also, if anyone has fooled with the wiring to the sensors, some have cooling tubes which are embedded in the wiring. Sometimes people rewire the connectors to fit different O2 sensor plug-ins and the cooling tube is cut. When these plug-ins are manipulated this way the sensors overheat.

I can't say offhand about how your PT cruiser has its wires configured into junction connectors. They may be replaceable junctions or may be moulded into the housing of the O2 control unit as 1 piece.

You will need to ask at an Autoparts store or go to a Salvage yard and try to find a harness you can use. It is not impossible that the sensors you purchased could be bad. You should be able to get some sort of continuity value from the prong connectors on the O2 sensors to see if you have a circuit in the part.

I hope my solution is helpful, perhaps a Chrysler mechanic will answer you.

My 2005 PT cruiser turbo has just started heavy white smoke when idling. Does not happen all the time and appears to run rough when it does


Hi Barbra:
1) I'd be suspicious of a bad head gasket with a possible leak between a cylinder and the water jacket.
If fumes smell like coolant that would be a confirming hint.
Check the oil (dipstick) and see if it has a milky colour or if there is any water visible. If the head gasket problem is only as in 1) above, it should be just oil.
- Temporary fix attempt????? - add aluminum sealant to coolant.
- Permanaent fix (expensive) - Off to the repair shop for a new head gasket.
Hope this helps.

2006 pt cruiser oil light


It's OK that oil light flickers or comes on while starting. It turns off when oil pressure comes up to normal. That won't happen till car is running.

Oil light


In most cases the flickering light means the oil pressure is dropping below 5psi. The actual problem could be a faulty pressure switch, or the engine could really have low oil pressure. And that would mean lower engine damage with the bearings or other parts.

My pt cruiser 06 2.8 turbo started leaking oil?


OK, anytime oil gets into the cooling system or vice versa, there's a strong possibility that there is a leak at the head gasket.

Could have to do with overspeeding the engine.

The cooling system can get up to 14 to 16 psi, enough to burst into the oil lines which run next to the cooling lines in the head and block.

If it's spilling on the front driver's side of the car, then you have some serious problems with this engine.

White smoke out of exhaust


Blown head gasket or cracked head. Need to get the head off and have it checked for cracks at a machine shop.

Overheating engine


Check your oil dipstick for coolant, or a mucky substance. Your symptoms sound like a blown head gasket.
