Question about 2002 Chrysler PT Cruiser

1 Answer

Loud humming noise coming from 03. Pt cruiser with turbo. You can only hear the sound when excelerating. When hooked up to the computer at the parts store it says something about the emissions. Any suggestions? It is also causing smoke to pour out of tailpipe, afraid to drive it.

It appears that the bearing and seal on the turbine shaft of the Turbo have failed causing the noise of a worn bearing and oil leaking past the seal into the exhaust system. Continuing to drive it will eventually remove all oil from engine if not topped up. The Turbo needs repairing urgently before any more damage occurs.
Turbos get very hot during brisk driving and need to be allowed to cool down before turning off the engine to prolong bearing and seal life. It is recommended to allow engine to idle for at least three minutes before switching off to allow the circulating oil to bring turbo down to a reasonable temperature.

If it was my car I would be tearing it down because I couldn't afford to buy a new turbo. Maybe it will come out if you spool up the turbo but if it doesn't there will be a new turbo in your future. Hope this helps.

2003 PT Cruiser turbo. Has just 67k miles on it. Just began making a low pitched loud whistle sound on acceleration or load/uphill. Gets louder with greater acceleration/load, no decrease in power.


I took my car to Keller's Auto Repair in Gettysburg PA, He specializes in Chryslers. I have 04 Cruiser with 2.4 Turbo that had the same whistle noise, and check engine light on. He found code P0301. The noise was caused by the #1 Cylinder injector O ring. Check them out on facebook. They will help you.

Turbo spins but there is no boost


Turbos are fairly simple pieces of equipment and the failure almost always happens in the bearings. It sounds to me like one or both bearings are shot and aren't allowing the impeller to spin up properly. You'll need a rebuild or a new/reconditioned turbo.

Does it make a thudding sond on the shifter....Frist off is it 6-speed or auto, and is it a 5.7/z28/ss or base model...Could be rear tranny mount which is located on the crossmember of the car...If you put it in drive hold your foot firmly on the brake and accel, slowly only to about 2krpms, have a friend look under the middle of your car and watch for the trannie to buckle up towards the back half shaft.....Get back at me with this info..I own 7 camaros, i can def help you w/ this....
