SOURCE: Engine motor mounts on 2001 PT Cruiser

Place a block of wood under the engine sump to prevent damage when you jack up the engine to take the tension off the mount. Make sure you do not jack the engine up too much as you might damage the exhaust,cooling hoses etc.

SOURCE: replacing a starter in a PT. Cruiser 2001

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."

My power steering belt came off. no power steering. can i still drive it without hurting my car


You should be able to drive it to the shop to get it fixed. You just won't have power steering assist at slow speeds.

What is size of belt for power steering?


Depends on whether you have A/C or not. There is only one serpentine belt that drives the power steering, alternator, water pump, and A/C if so equipped. Both the width and the length are different. Just tell the parts person you talk to the year and make of your car and whether or not it has A/C and they will be able to fix you up.

Where is the power steering sensor located on a pt cruiser


i have changed the pressure sensor switch on my 2001 PT Cruiser (B). to find it you will have to put the car on ramps and go under the car until your under the cross member (right behind the front wheel) it will be just behind the cross member closer to the driver side wheel. remember once you remove the sensor gravity will work against you and power steering fluid will pour out of the sensor hole. and when under a car there is really no place to go and if your not careful you will have to resign yourself to being covered in fluid. good luck!
