Question about 2003 Chrysler PT Cruiser

1 Answer

My 2003 pt cruiser won't turn over.

My 2003 pt cruiser won't start. I had a p0344 i think it was, cam sensor circuit intermittant code. It was idling funny in park. I replaced the sensor and it ran great for about 2 hours. I went to the store and when i came out and tried to leave it turned over about twice and then stopped. Now it does nothing. All the lights and the radio are working but the car will not crank. The cam and crank sensors have been replaced as well as the starter, and all the battery and starter wiring test ok. I am at a loss and am open to all ideas.

    No the code was erased after i replaced the sensor and did not come back on. The starter won't even click like it is trying to start, so I don't think it is anything as serious as a broken cam or crankshaft.

    Did you have error codes checked after replacing the sensors again?
    If you have, it could be a stuck crank or cam bearing, or even a broken cam or crank.

Pt cruiser jerks when acclerating, hesitates when not accelerating, fine when idle


I am not saying this is the solution or this is the problem but the PT cruiser suffer from code P0344 Which is the cam position sensor which causes misfire, the solution is a reflash of the ECM.But before a reflash the Camshaft postion sensor needs to be verified for working condition and if possible duplicated.Once the Check Engine light does come on you automatically go to limp home mode, This is the drag that you experience,the purpose is to protect the catalytic,in case there was a true condition with intermittent cam postion sensor,You need the check engine light code, then you can go from there.

I am having a p0340 and a p0344 code coming on and the check engine light is on. The car is maknig a jerking sensation when driving.Also, the car is not accelerating like it use to and the driving...


P0340 Camshaft Position (CMP) Sensor Circuit
P0344 Camshaft Position Sensor Circuit Intermittent


You'll need to replace the Camshaft Position Sensor and might as well replace the crankshaft sensor as well. With these codes and the symptoms you describe this should clear the problem for you. Also check the wiring harness around both sensors to make sure there are no issues. Maje sure no insulation is cut or missing along the entire run of the associated wiring.

P0344-Camshaft Position Sensor A Circuit Intermittent Bank 1, what is the cost to fix this?


I have just replaced one myself. The part is very easy to get to. its on the engine towards the top. All you have to remove is the air filter box and move one large hose out of the way. There is only (2) 8mm bolts holding it in place. They do need to be torqued to 155 IN-LBS though when you replace it. Sadly, after I replaced mine and cleared the codes, the same P0344 code comes right back. The intermitten one this time. I was told to check the wires for a short on the cam sensor I replaced and the crank sensor as well. The camshaft position sensor was only $37 at Autozone. Shop around though. I was quoted up to $70 for it. I saw online that some people had problems with aftermarket ones and only got theirs to work after installing a genuine one from the dealer. I havent called them but am guessing it will run close to the $70 range from them. Good luck with yours. Check this site to see how to change it, it helped me a great deal.www.ptcruizer.com/cam-sensor-repair.html Its basicly step by step with pics.

Engine light on PO441, PO344 and PO440 were the codes that came up. 2003 PT cruiser


P0440 and P0441 are refering to the NVLD pump. It is in the rear on the right side up near the fuel tank. P0344 is your cam position sensor on the rear (drivers side) of the cylinder head. The P0440 and 441 are probably why the check engine light is on and the 344 was stored from a previous event. Either way they are two different and unrelated problems. The NVLD (natural vacuum leak detection) pump is an emission item with no effect of the way it runs however it will keep the engine light on. The cam sensor will keep it from starting or intermittently run bad and not necessarily turn the light on. Both parts are easy to change. I hope this helps.
