Question about 2001 Chrysler PT Cruiser
Everyone we have asked has told us that this doesnt happen but it has so we would love some info on what to try next we have changed the oil and found a filter missing so have replaced it hubby is a mechanic so is frustrated that he can not find the problem lol thanks for any help you can give
Sure will happen,second gear is the "limp " mode if the Tcm sees a problem with the tranny. Key on,off ,on,off,on will flash the codes with the check engine light. That will point you in the right direction.
Can't recall how to reset the limp mode,thinking it's key on engine off ,press gas to the floor 3 times within 5 seconds. If a speed sensor goes bad they will do just that,many other problems will also tho. So check for codes first,if there are none it will flash a 55 .That is five flashes of the engine light then a pause then 5 more.

Since the vehicle is already at the mechanics, the standard check this and that scenarios don't apply. I also try to refrain from judging a situation that I'm not in front of, but something isn't quite right.
In case you are being taken advantage of, knowledge is power and I'm going to do my best to empower you. So let's get to the right questions to ask your mechanic.
Every one of the questions (just about every one) I put down would be reasonable if your car kept working perfectly the first time. I did get on a bit of a rant, please forgive me for that.
When asking them:
If these guys are trying to pull a fast one, they are lazy by nature. They are hoping for the same in those they take advantage of. Being prepared is key.
If you have one of those digital voice recorders, make sure it has fresh batteries and set it to record. The second you start asking questions you have the momentum, they are on the defensive.
Ask as many questions as you want. If you don't get straight answers, if you get waffling, condescension or BS, have them get your car ready to go, Don't pay them another dime. And as you leave, ask my final question: Do you guys know a good mechanic?
If you decide to take them to court, that recording is evidence. Their response to that question will likely win you the case.
I hope I have given you enough ammo to get to the bottom of this. If you need anything else comment me back, I'll respond as soon as I get it.
Either way, please let me know what happens. Can you tell I have issues with a certain type of 'business person'? ;-)

Remove battery and battery support you'll be able to undo starter bolt's trough there and slip starter out.

Testimonial: "This didn't help, because you had to remove the engine structural collar under the starter to get at the starter bolt. It was more complicated."
GET A 3 SPOKE PULLEY EXTRACTOR AND SCREW IN THE BOLT BUT IN THE CRANKSHAFT HOLE PUT A MUCH SMALLER SCEW SO YOU WOUNT MESS THE INSIDE UP
