Chk engine light comes on . car putt-putts when hot and you push the gas.

Chk engine light comes on . car has trouble shifting gears when this happens 2006 pt cruiser 6cyl. I have a 2006 PT Cruiser. I was sitting at a stop light and when I went to push the gas to go, the check engine light came on and the car started to sputter. When I had the code read, it said it was cam sensor. I had it replaced and it did the same thing after driving it 10 miles. I took it back and they replaced the sensor thinking it was defective. I am on my 3rd sensor and it continues to putt-putt when I push the gas. I had a complete tune up. It happens when the car is hot. I replaced the thermostat but still having the same problem

SOURCE: Change the thermostat on 2002 Chrysler PT Cruiser

Hi, i have put together a step by step guide that will help you with this replacement job. Make sure the vehicle is in a cool state before starting this job.


* Drain some coolant into a clean container until the coolant level is below the thermostat housing.
* Remove the upper radiator hose connection from the thermostat housing.
* Loosen the housing bolts and remove the housing.
* Remove the gasket and scrape it carefully from the surface of the housing and the mounting surface on the engine. If the gasket remains on either of the surfaces, there will probably bea coolant leak after reassembly. Some engines use a rubber O-ring to seal a thermostat housing.
* Compare the size of the thermostat to the old one. They are of different sizes, types, and temperature ratings.
* The temperature rating is stamped on the sensing bulb on the bottom of the thermostat. The temperature bulb faces the block.
* When replacing a thermostat, be sure that the thermostat fits into the groove in the block or outlet housing. If the thermostat is installed upside down, the engine will overheat.
* Install the gasket.
* Reinstall the thermostat housing. Refill the system and run the engine or pressure test to check for leaks.
* When the engine has reached operating temperature make sure the thermostat opens.
* You should be able to see coolant circulating within the radiator.
* Another way of checking thermostat operation is to feel the top of the radiator hose or use a thermometer or multimeter with a temperature probe to confirm that the coolant is warming up.
* If the engine is overheating, but the top hose is still cool to the touch, the thermostat is stuck closed and must be replaced.

NOTE
When a paper gasket is used and the recess is in the thermostat housing, it is a good practice to position the thermostat into the recess and glue the gasket to hold it in place. If it falls out of its groove during installation, the outlet housing can be cracked or a coolant leak will result. Before tightening the water outlet housing, try to rock it back and forth to be sure it is flush. Housings are often cracked during this step.

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

Filled up with gas started cutting back and smoke from back of engine


not sure what you are describing really, is it possible you can elaborate? After you filled up this happened? The engine started cutting back? Did you put diesel instead of gas? A common mistake! This will make the vehicle putt putt if it even starts and will have no power what-so-ever! Will just sit there and putt putt. A plugged catalytic converter will get red hot and sometimes hiss if there is any leak you your exhaust and the car will overheat and have a loss of power and the hotter it gets the more the power loss will be until it overheats the head and warps it or blows a head-gasket.
If that is smoke from a fuel leak then this is dangerous of explosion.
If you had a service guy check your oil when you filled up, he left the oil filler cap off and it's spraying all over the exhaust and engine and again dangerous of fire. You must carefully determine what is leaking to cause this smoke, it's either an exhaust leak, an antifreeze (coolant) leak or from the power steering or transmission line or brake line. One thing to find a small leak is to place a piece of cardboard under the engine to see what and where anything is dripping.

My 1994 nisan sentra, limited edition has a putt in the gas... when driving, what can i do?


A "putt in the gas"??? Do you mean that your engine is "hesitating on acceleration"? If this is what you mean, it is usually caused by either a dirty throttle body or a faulty Throttle Position Sensor (TPS). I would try cleaning the throttle body first.

The check engine light came on and instantly no acceleration just a major putt, putt, putt! What caused this?


First guess, catalitic converter. But you need to have the codes read first. This will point you in the right direction.

good chance with that problem you were close most likely a misfire will cause that. it would be either your spark plugs or coil pack. also make sure your vacuum lines are good and air filter is good. also bad gas can cause that problem. the worst outcome would be your throttle body going out on you.
