Question about 2001 Chrysler PT Cruiser
MY WIFE DROVE OUR 2001 PT CRUISER DOWN THE ROAD AND ABOUT 3 MILES AWAY THE ENGINE LIGHT CAME ON. I CHECKED THE OIL AND IT WAS LOW. I FILLED IT UP BUT AFTER A DAY IT IS STILL ON. I DROVE IT TO WORK AND EVERYTHING SEEMED FINE BUT THE LIGHT IS STILL ON. CAN ANYONE HELP ME?
The check engine light has nothing to do with oil level or any other level, it is a warning that there is a malfunction in the engine control system of the car, there are over 200 reasons why the light will come on, you will need to have the system tested for the trouble code that was stotred when the light came

Make sure no one has changed the air filter and left off a wire connection .a tuneup not done correctly can cause troubles like that.
the other thing is to have to code cleared to conferm it is indeed a correct code being set by the computer.
then verify the code number and look it up on the autozone web site.
make sure the part is operating correctly and all is hooked up right on the part that the code is refering to.spray out the throttle body at the butterfly plate and make sure it is very nice and clean right there as the carbon buildsup at the plate it is hard for it to breath at an idle cause of the build up right there at the plate.
the carbon comes from not using super unleaded.
if you have to prove it to yourself start using super only and the carbon will not build up anymore.dont be fooled by any other fuels.
put good in get good out.
