I have a 2002 pt cruiser while it was idling at the bank the oil light came on and the vehicle shut off and wouldn't start back so I gave it a oil change and also changed plugs an wires an just changed the crank sensor on it. Could it possibly be my oxygen sensors? Or no? Or could it possibly be something else I just might not be thinking of?

Hi Sammy, Take the vehicle and have a diagnostic scan carried out. That will pin point the problem and take away the reason for guess work. Regards John

My thought is to get a refund from the shop that tried to replace parts in order to secure your problem. The job of the shop is to diagnose the problem, not to replace items that may be the problem. Chrysler Master Techs are not trained to just replace parts, they fix the problem by diagnosing it properly.

You need to see a Chrysler dealership so they can attach a DRBIII and tell you exactly what is at stake.

I hope this helps you. I would be mad as heck.

I would not think the plugs and wires would be the problem because they would all have to fail at the same time to provide the symptom you experienced.

1. Get your money back
2. DRBIII

SOURCE: check engine light on, replaced oxygen sensor before catalyst,

  • Water or corrosion in the connector
  • Loose terminals in the connector
  • Wiring burnt on exhaust components
  • Open or short in the wiring due to rubbing on engine components
  • Holes in exhaust allowing unmetered oxygen into exhaust system
  • Unmetered vacuum leak at the engine
  • Bad o2 sensor
  • Bad PCM

SOURCE: What does the oxygen sensors look like in a 2003

There should be an O2 sensor before and after the catalytic converter on your vehicle, so it will have 2 sensors. You'll need a 7/8" open end wrench or an O2 sensor socket to replace them.

It'll look something like this: http://www.carsteering.com/data/all_images/48-01718.jpg

2002 PT Cruiser - oil light comes on for no reason - any ideas?


Turn key to "on" - right before "start", back a click to off, then on - off, on - off. Where miles are you should get something like "P302" and "Done".

Grasp the steering wheel and firmly attempt to turn it back and forth while simultaneously turning your ignition key back and forth.
To prevent this from happening again, straighten your wheels before you shut off the ignition.

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

Pt cruiser shut off and will not start again. what causes this?


if you remove the oil cap you cam see your camshaft(s) on many vehicles. so remove the oil cap and have someone "bump" the ignition over a few times while you look at the camshaft(s) below the oil cap to see if they are turning. if not your pt jumped time. other possibilities if the cams turn are fuel pump fuel filter coil pack went out relay problems but i would start with the first one i mentioned cause pt's are notorious for that.

Our 2003 pt cruiser's oil light came on. the car


Low oil pressure turns on the light, not a low level of oil. You might have a serious problem.

2005 pt cruiser stopped running and either the engine or oil light came on, what could cause this?


On newer vehicles, if the engine loses oil pressure, it will shut off to prevent catastrophic damage caused by oil starvation. Check your oil level. If it's good, it could be your oil pump. Good luck.
