The two pressure sensors could be the cause. First check the pressure at the low pressure vale located in the left rear of the engine bay. At idle it should read around 35-50 PSI. The low pressure sensor is on the dryer, left rear of engine bay. It unscrews but has a valve that does not allow freon to escape. remove the electrical connection and jump the two wires and attempt to run the system, if it works replace the sensor. The high pressure sensor is on the end of the compressor (toward middle of car) and can be jumpered as well. I sugest that you only jump one sensor at a time. Good Luck

How do I replace heater core in a 2008 PT Cruiser

I'm sorry to inform you that a PT Cruiser has one of the toughest heater cores to replace and there are no shortcuts to changing it. you must remove the entire dashboard which includes the metal frame, the steering column and disconnecting the AC lines. It takes at least 3 to 4 hours just to get it out. I'm talking from experience because I just did one about 2 months ago on a 2004. However, if you search YouTube, there are a few how to videos that give you a pretty good description of where to start. I'm a mechanic and it still took me an entire day to get it done, so if you're not very handy with tools I suggest not tackling that job...good luck my friend.

Stuttering car

It can be a number of things including general maintenance items like gas filter, air filter and regular tune-up parts including spark plugs. Have you changed the oil regularly?
Other than these things it is hard to say without seeing the car first hand. Good luck!

For the stalling issue, the throttle body needs to be cleaned, grime in this area prevents the throttle plate from closing completely and allowing air to enter, making the air/fuel mixture lean.
The dead speedometer could be a bad stepper motor in the instrument cluster or a bad speed sensor on the transmission. If the cruise control is not working, the problem is most likely the speed sensor.

I have a 2004 Dodge Durango 4.7. About 3 months ago I replaced the oil pump, but believe it was the oil pick up valve that was the problem. 2 days ago, the engine began knocking loudly the entire time it...

Try using a MOPAR oil filter...These cheap after market filters are allowing the oil to drip down into the pan and there is none in the top of the motor on cold starts.

sounds like u still have a leak and need to have freon added or wasnt fully charged --when ur at idle or lower rpm the compressor will circulate the freon fine and will not cause a problem when u put a load uphill passing or increase the rpm a little more the compressor sucks more and circulates more freon which gives u a lower suction pressure if the suction pressure gets to low the the a/c protects itself and the engine by turning off [low pressure safety] cycling if had done 3 months ago bring back and have tested or u can buy some freon and add to ur system yourself

2004 pt crusier shifting down hard is it transmission

Sounds like you have more than one problem there. best bet might be to stop in at autozone, or Pep Boys for a free trouble code scan, just to see if anything comes up, then get back with results. As far as the AC goes, can you see or hear your AC compressor kicking in when on AC mode?

Air Conditioning in my PT Cruiser stopped working...

probably low, not coolant! The AC system is separate from the coolant system. The AC needs to be recharged with
R134A, a special refrigerant used only for air conditioning, much like the old Freon or R12 it replaced. R12 was bad for ozone depletion, so about 20 years ago the federal government mandated a change to R134A.
Just go to a shop and tell the service people you may need the AC system recharged.
