Question about 2001 Chrysler PT Cruiser

1 Answer

We have a 2001 2.4 PT cruiser. Went to change the timming belt andwater pump. reading our manual it looks like you have to take the cam shafts out of the engine to get the timming cover off thats over the water pump. Could you tell me this is true or is there a easy way.

To change the timing belt on your 2001 Chrysler PT Cruiser, the motor mount on the passenger side must be removed, which means jacking up and bracing the engine. You must also remove the front tire on the passenger side in order to gain access to the front of the engine to remove the crankshaft pulley. You will probably need a puller to get that pulley off. You may also need to remove the lower strut. The cam shafts are not removed, its the crankshaft pulley that has to come off.

Timinig mark for 2003 pt cruiser non turbo 2.4


Hi, if it's ignition timing your looking at, it'not adjustable, it's controlled by the ECU, If however it's the cam belt timing, there is a crnk timing mark on the bottom pulley and the cam shafts have markings on theouter rim of the pulleys,these have to line up facing each other in a straight line using the centre bolts as a datum, all 3 marks should be aligned to be correct

Timing belt replacement on a 2001 pt cruisre


Not for the beginner, I will be doing one on monday. 2001 Twin Cam.

I have been in repair for 30 years, I would not let anyone with less than 5 years experience touch it. This motor has the potential to bend valves if out of time between the cams and crank.

Changing the right side mount too. 10 hours according to the book (all data) and thats for someone that knows how.

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.

2001 PT Cruiser quit running driving down highway


Most likely a cam sensor or a crank sensor. The timing belt didn't break did it? They also have an issue with the timing belt tensioner going bad and jumping a tooth.
