Question about 2001 Chrysler PT Cruiser
I took it in to a place yesterday (not Chrysler) and they did a 'diagnostic' and said it looks like either the clutch or transmission will need to be replaced. $$!!! I had the diagnostic faxed to daughter so someone at her work, who repairs the company's vehicles, suggested I check other places and ask about the slave cylinder and/or master cylinder. Called local Chrysler place this morning and she said it sounds like input/output speed sensor, much cheaper for this retired grandma to deal with.
Basically no problem w/ shifting when the engine is cold, but once it's warmed up, and I stop at a light, I cannot get it into any gear! I have to turn off the engine to move shifter at all!
A couple months ago I took it to the first place (above) because some lights on the dash would come on intermittently - brakes, trac, & ABS. They couldn't find the problem and didn't have a code (not sure what this is), but said it could be a speed sensor. I didn't do anything about it. Any these two things (lights coming on and inability to shift) be related?
Sorry this is long. You can tell I don't have a clue!
If it is a manual, it could be the clutch or synchronizers. If it is an automatic, the speed sensors or solenoid pack are your most likely culprits.

If there is an advanced auto parts or an autozone near you, go there, they can hook up a code scanner to find out why the light is on, it will show the cause, and they don't charge to do it. Takes about a minute to do it. Good luck.
