Question about 2004 Chrysler PT Cruiser

1 Answer

Engine starves for fuel after running about 50 miles or so...

I have a 2005 PT Cruiser Turbo. I run the car down the freeway about 50 or so miles and the engine acts like it's starving for fuel. When this happens and I stop and top off the fuel tank (with cool gas from the pump), it acts like it cools the pump and it runs great for 50 or so miles again. Around town it runs great. I had a similar problem on a Ford pickup and finally changed the fuel pump and it fixed it. That is my next step. I was wondering if anyone else is having this problem and maybe another fix. Thanks.

Has Neon do same, I ran fuel at low level, on hot day, ran engine until it started to act up & threw a fuel pressure gauge on it. Was at approx 5 psi. Cold next morning, 48-50 psi. Always hot day about 30-40 miles into work in morning, o.k. Sit in hot sun all day & would happen 3-4 times on way home. Sit and let cool, 20 minutes or so & go again for a while. Cool day, no problem. Change pump I would.

The system has to see a wide range of conditions before a smog test can be done. On most brands you have to drive at least 50 miles, at various speeds including stop and go, let it idle for 5 - 10 minutes, and run at freeway speed for at least 25 miles. It also has to reach normal operating temp of 195 degrees.

Pt cruiser rough idling


Replace your Fuel Filter and see if it does not Help. Even a Partially Clogged Fuel Filter will cause this Problem.
