Question about 2002 Chrysler PT Cruiser

1 Answer

Loss of Power

Hi- I have a 2002 PT Cruiser Touring. I was driving home from work last night and right as I was starting to make my left turn into my driveway, the red engine indicator came on and simultaneously the car died. It has over 3/4 a tank of gas. It will crank, but wont start. I am guessing I need a new fuel pump seeing as how it still has the original one. I'm hoping you might have any other suggestions that are not as expensive. Any help you can give would be appreciative. Thanx.

SOURCE: 97 sebring lxi, 2.5L -

first thing you got to do is determen weather its electrical or fuel problem, you can take a test light and hook to a ground and the light end to a spark plug and see if it lights while someone turns over engine, if it lights you got spark. if its got spark, on to fuel, take fuel pressure test, don't think because you can hear pump working does not mean it is, it can sound like it is but its not, at least putting out enought pressure, not the correct amount it will not run. pumps will go out just that way with no warning at all.

Is the sway bar on a 2002 PT Cruiser necessary? Can it be removed without causing any future problems?


While it can be done I don't think there is a person who would recommend it. Regardless of if it is the front or the rear, they both do a lot to stabilize the car in a turn. The sway bar basically ties one side of the car to the other so it doesn't 'sway' too much during a turn. If you are making a hard left turn the car wants to lean left as well, picking up the right side of the car. The sway bar prevents this.
So, while the car will still run and may even seem like it is driving ok, it will be unsafe.

Power steering went out on my 2002 pt cruiser


Please check the TYRE pressure if this seems OK then you must hoist the car and check the steering with the wheels up . If this is not found to be free the power steering section must be checked in detail starting from the drive, the hydraulics to the ball joint links. Loss of fluid or fault in pump cannot be ruled out. check the drive belt which if failed will be indicated.

Don't try start the engine when the oil light turn on, it would harm your piston, camshaft and crankshaft
It should be the oil pump has broken and need to replace, tow your car to the nearest service center
