Question about 2004 Chrysler PT Cruiser

1 Answer

I have installed a used engine in my 2002 PT Cruiser non-turbo. The engine was running properly before it was removed from the wreck, same year and model. Now it will not start. Through the codes in the car, I have isolated the situation down to the crankshaft position sensor. The ASD is not getting a reference signal from the CKP sensor (code 0320). I reset the codes by disconnecting the negative side of the battery, and the code repeated. I changed the sensor with the one from the seized engine, and still no change. I have also checked and cleaned the connector, with no change. The wiring harness seems to be in good condition, with nothing out of the ordinary there. I cannot find any reference to the terminals on the connector to check for a problem in the harness - continuity, etc. At this point, I do not think that the sensor is bad, and don't want to spend $70 at Autozone as an experiment. Any help from this point would be appreciated. So you know, I also checked the ASD relay and have been swapping around relays with no change. The fuses and circuit breakers are also all okay. Prior to this repair, the engine seized from overheating (long story, sad ending) and the car has been sitting for about a year. The battery is new, as are belts, hoses, etc. Thanks Kevin Duffy krduffy@me.com

Most chrysler products you have to re sync the cam and crank sensors using a scan tool such as Snap-on's modis. you may have to also have the cars computer specs re programmed for the replacement motor adn that can only be done at a dealership.

Can a 2002 PT Cruiser with a 2.4 regular engine be replaced by a turbo of the same year?


No it cannot as the certificate of homoglonation which shows your chassis number will show it as a normal asperated engine and changing the engine will cointravine all the europeon laws regarding use and construction of a vehicle ,so when it goes for its yearly mechanical inspection it will fail the test as not conforming to the original specs ,unless youre cousin is the inspector of course but have a accident and the under writer looks at it then your insurance is invalid

The ECU is not reading the chip in the key. Replacing the ECU will not solve the problem. It is an input issue(signal to ECU) not an output issue ( signal from ECU). Perform an OBDII scan of stored fault history. Probably an ignition switch problem.

Yes,your 2.4 engine is a interference engine,the mechanic should of showed you the bent valves and not installed the timing belt.Did he tell you they were bent when you paid or you found out after you drove home.I would go back and demand money back,if he's won't pay back,go to the BBB and report him and take him to small claims court,your engine is bad.
