SOURCE: Need to replace the shifter cable on a 2003 PT Cruiser

I got mine fixed. Had to change the cable and the whole shifter assembly. It wasnt too bad in price, less then $200 total, and my son-in-law changed it in about 1/2 hr in the driveway. Just go to the dealer and get the parts break down for that area and get the cable and chances are, you will need the assembly too.

SOURCE: Power door locks quit working, both interior

motor1258.

how did you check the relays, to find the problem with the door locks you need to remove the door panel and test for power at the door lock actuator or you can just buy the master switch and put it in and see if it works.

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.

SOURCE: 2002 PT Cruiser Shifter Wont Go Into Reverse - Manual 5 speed

After reading opelenvy's solution I fashioned two bushings to solve this problem.There were two sleeves under the airbox, one for the shifter and one for the transmission. Both of mine were gone and I needed to back up today, so i slid a 5/8" rubber hose cut to 1/2" into the smaller sleeve and slipped it over the pin. I added a washer and cotter pin to complete that one. The larger sleeve required me to slip the same hose inside of a 3/4
" pvc pipe, cut the combo to 1/2" and install the same way I did the first one. It works perfectly.

Clutch feels loose,no pressure. gears are stuck, shifter wont moveis it the clutch adjustment?


The Clutch Master Cylinder or the Clutch Slave Cylinder has a leak. From under the dashboard, located the Clutch Master Cyliner Boot and pry one side open. If hydraulic fluid drips out, the piston seal(s) in the cylinder are worn. You'll need to replace the cylinder.

Adjust clutch in pt cruiser


It happened to me, I thought clutch.....but.....in my case it was the gear shift selector bushes. too much play, meaning, under bonnet/hood look down past the battery to see where gear select cable meets the gearbox bell housing, the rubber inside the joint wears out, it happens at both ends of the gear select cable, not a big expensive job. But it can make gearshift misses or failure to engage or release. I repeat...NOT EXPENSIVE ! also, check fluid levels and check for leaks. if not these.... then you are in clutch main assembly territory...good luck. Red

2001 pt cruiser gearbox not smooth


OK, if it's a cluth probelm then you either need a new clutch, or it's a problem with the slave cylinder. I've even heard if as simple a problem as the bolts holding the slave clynider coming loose, so when you press the clutch, the slave actually moves. If you're having troubles getting it into gear (metal on metal) your shift linkage bushings could be worn. There are 2 on the shifter end, and 2 on the transmission end. I recommend replacing them with a more solid bushing from ****** Racing (www.boogerracing.com) that will give a much more confident feel than the stock rubber bushings.
