Question about 2007 Chrysler PT Cruiser Touring Hatchback
While idling, the RPMs drop, a 'grinding' sound is heard from near radiator, then white smoke blows from behind or below radiator. I believe this may be related to the a/c unit, as the smoke has a light 'freon' smell, not 100% sure.
You should replace the cooling fan. With the ac on and no cooling fan, high pressure builds in the condensor and compressor bogging the engine down. When it gets too high a relief valve dumps and you get what appears to be white smoke. It's actually freon, hence the smell. I've replaced several PT cooling fans with the same symptoms.
