    no, it isn't the break pedal, it is more the whole car that jerks - it feels like it is something in the undercarriage. could it be?

    Under light braking to a stop, do you feel the jerking in the brake pedal? If so the front brake rotors are warped and need to be trued.

SOURCE: transmission fluid

I assume u found the dipstick to check the fluid level? Use a funnel to add fluid at the dipstick tube, slowly, while engine is running. Shift thru the gears several times, recheck level, don't overfill.

SOURCE: 2001 PT Cruiser - blower and power windows stopped

Haven.t fixed it yet, but there is a bad wire or loose connection in a group of wires located behind the fuse panel. In the group of wires one of them is apparently the problem. When I move the wires the blower motor and power windows work, but they eventually stop again. I haven't had time to find and fix the exact wire that's the problem yet, it's not an area that I can easily get to!

Theirs more than one mount and they cost 60 -125 at a parts store Most fair mechanics will just change the front one and send you down the road for less than $200 for one mount. The dealer will reconmend them all and their right if over 100 thou miles and get out $500-800

2005 pt cruiser will jerk and check engine light comes on wont shift into gear unless you stop and put it into park and take off again

This behaviour should set a diagnostics code. Either get a code reader or check for instructions on doing the key dance that will display the codes on dashboard.

2001 pt cruiser has issues getting up to speed, sort of jumpy

Sounds like transmission issues. When a transmission slips, you'll notice the RPM's climb before accelerating. Could be a number of transmission issues at play here:
  • low auto transmission fluid
  • bad or burned auto transmission fluid
  • bad transmission module

I had the transmission re-built a little over a year ago. Now it is reving up to 4000rmps before it'll change gears and jerks when it does. Electrical test showed that all the gears were not lining up...

I would contact transmission rebuilder and let him know. It sounds like the torque converter is defective. That will happen if the transmission is not flushed completely after a rebuild.

Car is jerking and the engine has come on but it has oil and transmission fluid in it

We had an issue with our 2005 PT Cruiser. The check engine light came on and had trouble starting. Once it did start it would buck and sputter. I did some research on the web and found similar problems. From what i found it is the cam shaft sensor. This happened yesterday. We are getting it checked today. I won't go as far as to tell you this is exactly what it is, but it is a good place to start. Hope this helps!

2003 PT Cruiser. Check engine light, code cheked at auto parts store indicates a transmission issue. knocking noise when running but is loader at idle. Added ATF and got better, but noise came back.

if the noise is definitely coming from the tranny, you need to stop driving or get it to a shop before the tranny is completely destroyed. a rebuild is cheaper than a new one.
