Question about 2008 Chrysler Pt Cruiser
My 2008 pt cruiser tries to die when you stop at a stop sign or light. The engine is making a weird noise also. I took it back to chevy where I bought it and they told me it was the spark plugs and not under warranty, so I had them replaced but mechanic said they where not bad. Light came on and I took back, same problem. They sent it to Chrysller who had it for a month, got back and had no temperature and the anifreeze was where I couldn't see it. Returned car to Chevy, still not running right, they kept it another two weeks. Called and said it was the temperature gauge and spark plug wires and would cost me 180.00 to fix. Brought home and had fixed for forty dollars. The car light went out, but the car is still making noise and gas milage went from 25-28 to 18-19 on a good day and still want to die. A friend said to take a dollar and put on exhaust and see if it will **** it to the tail pipe and it does, which he says is bad rings and such, but they just did this and ground the head. What do you think?
A dollar on the exhaust? what is this? Isn't this still under warrantee?
You need to see if the basics are good, do a compression test. This will test the rings. See if all of your cylinders have spark, and are all plugs burning a good tan color. If not, you might have an injector issue. So, start with the basics.
