Dont start it again until you can verify that the belt was installed properly and cams are in sync

PT Criuser has been running hot and now makes a loud chirping sound when cranked up . What causes this ?


my guess is your water pump is not working properly and the loud chirping sound is from the serpentine belt which also runs the water pump, alternator, ac and steering pump. first thing to check is coolant the cooling fan , thermostat , water pump in this order. chirping sound definitely come from the belt but the cause could come from any of the driven part but im zeroing in on the water pump because the car is running hot. old belt could also cause the chirping.

How to change a water pump for a 2006 pt crusier


you must remove the timing belt cam gears and rear timing cover recomend replacing timing belt tensioners and all idler pulleys at same time, (this job takes me 4 hours and i remove the radiator condensorassembly to make it easier) you could damage you engine if you dont install your belt correctly.

Have a 2008 PT Crusier. Its missing when at an idle. Also it starts missing when taking off. However it smooths out when ruinning with no missing. The machine shows multiple miss fires, and I have had it...


In regards to your timing belt being replaced, it's best that you have it done per manufacturers specifications.
As for your misfiring, there are many factors that can cause this issue. If you are mechanically inclined, I recommend you begin a compression test and cylinder leakage test. One of these tests will help you determine if you have a bad / bend valve.

How do you put on a timing belt for a 2002 pt


hi from uk could you please verify ? you intend to diy cambelt change ? also has belt been removed already ? or has belt failed/broken ? the belt change is not too difficult to change/renew and is advisable to renew belt and tensioner and the water pump too as it is driven by c/belt to eliminate having to strip down again in near future due to possible pump faiure/leaking ? belt replacement is approx120'000miles or 8 years service ? however if belt has failed ?? then as this engine is what is known as interferance this means there will be piston/s to valves contact resulting in possible valves damage/bent ? the renewal of c/belt etc should take approx 3 hrs if you are confident/tooled and would save $$$$

Timming belt broke is it easy to replace my self and does it effect any thing when it broke


THIS CAR USES WHAT IS CALLED AN INTERFERENCE ENGINE, THIS MEANS IF THE BElT BROKE WHILE DRIVING YOU HAVE BENT THE INTAKE AND EXHAUST VALVES, VERY REARELY THIS DOESN'T HAPPEN SO PUT A NEW BLET ON AND CHECK THE COMPRESSION, IF U HAVE NO COMPRESSION OR LOW YOU WILL NEED TO HAVE THE CYLINDER HEAD REMOVED AND THE VALVES REPLACED, U MAY ALSO HAVE BROKEN A PISTON CROWN AS WELL, THE NORMAL CHANGE INTERVAL FIOR THE TIMING BLET IS 120,000 MILES, SO IF IT BROKE BEFORE THAT CONTACT CHRYSLER THEY MAY PROVIDE SOME ASSISTANCE WITH THE REPAIR COST.

I have a 2002 hyundai sonata 4 cylender, it stopped running on me. It was towed to a shop(not Hyundai) I've purchase a fuel pump(they discovered that it wasn't the fuel pump) I've purchased spark plugs...


if jump time that should be it timing marks and the tensioner are to lined up an also install new tensioner and recommend water pump if driven by the timing belt. if it has bent valves cause you jump time usually the car won't trun over at all.

My 2002 PT Cruiser died on the side of the road yesterday. The car has 95,000 miles and I beleive the serpentine belt broke. Had the car towed to the dealership and before the service adviser had someone...


The reason the service writers always recommend that the water pump be changed along with the timing belt and cam and crank seals, is that they are all located together, and it takes a long time (which you pay for) to take everything off to get to the area, so you may as well replace the other things which will go out soon with that high of a mileage anyway. Altogether, it runs between $500-$700, but it should last you another 100,000 miles. Your serpentine belt should cost about $130 parts and labor. If you are in doubt or the dealership has a bad reputation, have it towed somewhere else. Any time you have doubts, cal the BBB in your area and ask questions.
