Question about 2002 Chrysler PT Cruiser

1 Answer

Car sometimes starts, sometimes won't

I am perplexed. Sometimes my PT Cruiser will turn right over, and then, nothing, not even a click. Battery is good, no loose connections, I checked. Is there a starter relay for these that can go bad, or is it possibly the starter itself? I let it sit for awhile it will turn over, I shut it off, and then nothing at all. Kind of weird? I already got stuck once with it, but eventually it turned over? Any ideas?

Hello. It all sounds like the starter it self is bad.

Car wont start, NOT battery


sometimes a rubber mallet doesn't work on the stater, you actually have to hit it with something stronger, like a hammer while turning it over. If not check to see if you have a pro lock on your vehicle because if that becomes just a little loose it won't start.

I have 2004 PT Cruiser that the battery went dead. Replaced the battery but the car won't turn over. In fact I can smell gas after trying to start the car. Also noticed a leak underneath the right fro


You shouldn't have any gas smells, maybe a little if the engine were cranking over without starting. But your car is not even cranking, right? Or will it crank and not start? In that case you might smell a little gas, so next step would be to check for spark.

The leak on front passenger side: if that is where the front of the engine is, check carefully your water pump for leaking (then it is bad) and also check all hose connections there for leaks.

Sudden no-start conditions are usually loss of either spark or gas to the cylinders. These are the first things to check when it won't start.

This one has stumped everyone. Any suggestions folks?

Clean both battery connections by removing the connectors and cleaning the posts and connector interiors with a cleaning wire brush from your auto parts supplier. Wash your hands afterward to prevent mysterious holes in your clothes. Hope this helps!

2001 Pt- sometimes it starts sometimes not


It is hard to say exactly what the solution is but with the volume of symptoms you are listing off then it might be the ignition switch. But I would guess the oil sending unit may be faulty too
