SOURCE: spark plugs

you must take off the in-take housing top of engine ( plastic) 5bolts,take off bolts at throttle body3bolts,take off all hoses in rear of plastic throttle body 2 bolts,take your time not to brake plastic hoses in rear, and make sure you have gaskets inside of plastic intake once you take off. Pull intake off slow, and the spark plugs and wires are seen. You need a spark plug wrench to take out spk plugs, do one at a time. Replacement is the reverse........runjoe

SOURCE: Change the thermostat on 2002 Chrysler PT Cruiser

Hi, i have put together a step by step guide that will help you with this replacement job. Make sure the vehicle is in a cool state before starting this job.


* Drain some coolant into a clean container until the coolant level is below the thermostat housing.
* Remove the upper radiator hose connection from the thermostat housing.
* Loosen the housing bolts and remove the housing.
* Remove the gasket and scrape it carefully from the surface of the housing and the mounting surface on the engine. If the gasket remains on either of the surfaces, there will probably bea coolant leak after reassembly. Some engines use a rubber O-ring to seal a thermostat housing.
* Compare the size of the thermostat to the old one. They are of different sizes, types, and temperature ratings.
* The temperature rating is stamped on the sensing bulb on the bottom of the thermostat. The temperature bulb faces the block.
* When replacing a thermostat, be sure that the thermostat fits into the groove in the block or outlet housing. If the thermostat is installed upside down, the engine will overheat.
* Install the gasket.
* Reinstall the thermostat housing. Refill the system and run the engine or pressure test to check for leaks.
* When the engine has reached operating temperature make sure the thermostat opens.
* You should be able to see coolant circulating within the radiator.
* Another way of checking thermostat operation is to feel the top of the radiator hose or use a thermometer or multimeter with a temperature probe to confirm that the coolant is warming up.
* If the engine is overheating, but the top hose is still cool to the touch, the thermostat is stuck closed and must be replaced.

NOTE
When a paper gasket is used and the recess is in the thermostat housing, it is a good practice to position the thermostat into the recess and glue the gasket to hold it in place. If it falls out of its groove during installation, the outlet housing can be cracked or a coolant leak will result. Before tightening the water outlet housing, try to rock it back and forth to be sure it is flush. Housings are often cracked during this step.

2002 pt cruiser is idling rough, what could cause this and how could it be fixed?


check to see if there are any codes in the computer that could help. then if you haven`t had a tune-up for a long time it may be due, spark plugs, fuel filter, etc. it could also could be a fuel pressure problem, get the pressure tested with a gauge. also clean the throttle valve a if they get dirty it can cause idle problems.

2005 Pt Cruiser running poor at acceration


If plugs helped...the problem went away...then it could be a plug getting fouled by excess fuel or oil. Look at your new plugs and see if they are discolored or went with gas. could be an injector problem. It could also be an ignition problem. You moved the plug wires around and they worked for a few minutes till the new "connection in the wire" burned up. Check your plug wires with an ohm meter. Check your plugs for fuel or oil on plug...a sign of stuck injector, oil leak, misfire. Did it really help or was it just wishful thinking?

A rich codes is hard to get. Something is restricting the airflow or you have something wrong with the fuel control. Check the air filter and if it is good. I would wonder if you have a leaking fuel injector. Do you know how to do a cylinder drop test? How well does it idle? Does it smell of raw fuel at idle? Is it hard to start after sitting?

2001 PT CRUISER MISFIRE CYLINDER 2


Do you know how check the engine codes? Turn the key 3 times and the codes will be displayed where the odometer number is displayed.
If the code is 302 it is spark plug mis fire.
It could be a bad fuel injector.
