Question about 2005 Chrysler PT Cruiser
PT Cruiser engine light is on. Codes are saying that engine is misfiring. Mechanics still looking for cause after 3 days.
They are still looking for a cause because it isnt misfiring right now or because they cant find the cause of the stored misfire codes ?
If it is misfiring right now and they cant figure it out then perhaps you should find new mechanics !
I have seen a lot of bad coils on the PT.
Misfire is usually caused by spark plug wires first, spark plugs 2nd, and coil third.
If it isnt misfiring now, spray down the wires with water. If it misfires after that replace the spark plug wires and spark plugs and try again.
If it still misfires then the problem will likely be the coil.

Lots could be the cause plugs, wires,coils,injection system need code to specify

Trouble Code Conditions: Engine is running; atmospheric pressure, fuel level, battery voltage, engine speed, engine load are above minimal predetermined specifications; the engine is not in fuel cutoff and intake air temperature and coolant temperature are within normal operating ranges; there are no DTCs relating to ECT, CMP, CKP, MAP or IAT Sensor, to Crank rationality, to Crank Sensor Learn invalid, or to System Voltage. If total misfires detected are greater than 7% during the first 1000 rpm, or are over 3% after the first 1000 rpm, or are 25% during any 200 rpm with suspect cylinder misfire counter more than 80% and no other cylinder misfire counters above 80%, this DTC will set. The MIL will flash after first trip occurrence and will be steady after second trip.
