Question about 2007 Chrysler PT Cruiser Touring Hatchback

1 Answer

Loud engine I just bought a 2007 Pt. The engine is very loud. Sounds like a plane, especially on start up. And its quite shaky. Someone told me the catalytic converter is quite loud for the first year, but a friend has the same car he just bought as well and his is not loud at all. He mentioned a possible motor mount issue. It has a rough idle as well.

I have 98 trooper got in nd started it and it sounds loud like puttering as i accelerate. It sounds clogged or its putting kind of wounds like a loud pickup truck now

Does it stop misfiring after it warms up??
Oil in the spark plugs, or bad spark plugs can cause this, as well as many other things if it does it even after it is warmed up.

It is a misfiring cylinder if it is running real shaky(I suppose it could be an exhaust manifold leak to if its not shaky) If it is shaking I highly suggest you seek a repair immediately as this can damage expensive components like Oxogen sensors and your very expensive Catalytic Converter!!!

Growling engine noise only at idle. Cam area

Take all of the belts off for a short run at idle. If the sound goes away it is pulley related, spin each pulley and listen for bearing noise, also check for play at this time.

If the noise does not go away when the motor is driving no accessories you have a more serious problem.

The engine seems to be making a sputtering noise

Amelia, we just bought one off a lease 5 weeks ago (purchased from a dealer). We are having the same symptoms, suddenly, as you describe.

Took it back to the dealership. After a bit of drama, they agreed to foot the repair bill ($1000). It was a broken distributer cap and wiring which should have been replaced before it was resold to us. What a pain.
