Question about 2006 Chrysler PT Cruiser
I have an 06 PT Cruiser Automatic with Turbo with less than 30K miles. When I slow down it idles rough and seems to be misfiring or something similar. It has completely stalled on me on two different occassions, but starts right back up.When it starts idling rough, if I put it in park and press the accelarator it evens out temporarily. I've had it in the shop 3 times, but they cannot seem to get any type of fault codes from it. They have duplicate the problem a couple times, but have not been able to pinpoint the problem. Please Help.
I AM A CHRYSLER PARTS/SERVICE MANAGER AND HAVE SEEN THESE TURBOS BLOW INTAKE TO PLENUM GASKETS. WE ARE A SMALL DEALER AND HAVE SEEN 3 HAPPEN AND ALSO WAS VERY DIFFICULT TO DIAGNOSE. WE WERE ABOUT TO PULL THE HEAD ON ONE WHEN WE FOUND THE GASKET SUCKED IN. PART IS CHEAP AND REPAIR NOT TERRIBLE .HAVE YOUR TECH SPRAY CLEANER AROUND SEAM BETWEEN INTAKE AND PLENUM ENGINE SHOULD DIE DOWN WHEN YOU HIT THE LEAK

I have a 2006 PT Cruiser that had the same issue when I was driving the gauges & dash panel lights would flicker for a few seconds and then everything would go back to normal. This could happen once or multiple times in one day. We discovered a wire issue with the steering wheel when you would tilt it. There is a metal plate and if the wires hit it this causes the dash/gauge panel flicker issue. My husband pulled the steering panel apart & taped them with electrical tape. Since then we have had no more issues.
