Question about 2002 Chrysler PT Cruiser

1 Answer

I have a 2002 PT Cruiser. On a cold start it starts on fast idle which is excessively fast. It is actually unsafe to put the car in drive. It will stay on fast idle for 5 minutes before dropping, but then the engine immediatelly begins surging on the low idle. If you depress the gas pedal the engine returns to fast idle for a minute before reverting back to the low idle surging. I have a p1193 code. Would this be the problem Thanks for any help

Code p 1193 refers to inlet air temp sensor problem --circuit high
a faulty ambient air temperature sensor or barometric pressure sensor will cause this effect as the idle control in the ECM is not getting correct temperature readings to set idle speed

SOURCE: 2002 pt cruiser dies then fires right back up randomly going down the highway

most of the times when the car cut out it is cause by the crank angle sensor you wait for it to cool down and it will fire back up again, best way to check it is to take a bottle of water with you and try to locate (which is between the fire wall and the engine on the driver side on the engine block) where the crank angle sensor. when the car cuts out pour the water on the sensor to cool it down if the car then starts right away that is the problem.

The best way is to do a chemical hydrocarbon dye test at the shop.

This can rule out leaking headgasket.
You did not state the odometer reading....a 2002 should has 70,000+ miles.

Check the fan relay(s).

Turn A/C on and see is the fan coming on.

Is the fan fully operational?

SOURCE: Errors P1684 given, how do I fix

The first code, p1684, just states the battery has been dis-connected in the last 50 start cycles.
Code p0401 is the EGR flow. You may need to replace the EGR valve.
Code p1193 is the intake air temperauture ( IAT) sensor. It may also need to be replaced.
Have your mechanic take a look at those, and please let me know how it goes.
