Question about 2003 Chrysler PT Cruiser
03 PT don't go when warm, but if car is cold goes fine? Bad transmission?
Hi there, I have seen it once before when the transmission oil was really old, try a service on your transmission first, it's a filter change and new oil, hope this helps

Assuming that the fluid is full, The symptoms you have indicate internal pressure loss within the unit. As time goes by, wear on the metal contact areas where seals ride, become worn. The seals themselves become somewhat brittle and especially in cold weather, sealing of fluid pressure becomes less than desired. Each time the transmission "flairs" on shifts some burning takes place on internal friction plates & clutches.Even with a fluid change, this condition cannot be corrected. Unfortunately, the unit must be rebuilt or replaced. In some mild cases an additive such as Lucas transmission sealer/conditioner can be used, but generally this is a "bandaid" not a permanent fix!

If it's on turning, it sounds like the power steering pump. Could also be your belts (power steering & and/or accessory) need changing

test your coils. the coil pack may have a crack that opens when warm. most of the time it will not show up as bad unless the car is warm.

On that model the trans is monitored and controlled by the on board transmission control computer. If you had a problem it would default the trans into 2nd gear and not shift. You can check the fluid when it is hot.
Put it in neutral with the park brake on, there is a dip stick near the fire wall on the rt side of the engine, pull it out, wipe it clean with the engine running, reinsert and pull back out. It should be in the thatched area of the stick.
Make sure you check your power steering fluid too. That could be the wine you hear.
Hope this helps.
