Question about 2006 Chrysler PT Cruiser
I have a 2006 PT Cruiser. When starting in the AM (cold), it idles around 1000 rpm.. until I touch the gas. After I let off the gas (not revving, just off idle), the idle drops to 500 rpm and the engine shudders a bit, then recovers to 750 rpm after a few seconds.
The engine check light is also on.
Would this be a throttle position sensor problem?
Could this be a faulty Idle Air Intake Motor issue?
I have an ODBII reader, but I think it's too old for this car. With the older 2004 SX2.0 you could get the code from the trip indicator after flipping the key to the first position 3 times...
If you go to advance auto they will scan the car for free. if you write the codes down and update your question it will be easier to eliminate some of the sensors.
