Question about Chrysler PT Cruiser

1 Answer

Car is a 2003 PT Cruiser with 87000 miles on it and yesterday the check engine light came on and the car seemed to kick itself out of drive (its an automatic) the car drives ok sometimes but seems to lack power and will not shift right. Ran the OBDII self scan and got P 0700 for a code. Any ideas what this may be?

The P0700 is a general transmission control fault. It would be very difficult for an individual lacking expensive equipment to figure this out, I would take the vehicle to a transmission shop or chrysler dealer.

How many miles do I have to drive a PT cruiser to reset the check engine light


Thermostat Stuck Open--you put it in a pot on the stove to
confirm that?

You replaced it & did not do the testing & look at data, to confirm
that was the problem & is it heating up now to 205 to 213 hot?

No driven miles at all
No problems --you won't have the check engine (MIL Lamp)
on--- when ALL Monitors run

YOU NEVER go to inspection--- until you drive with a professional
scan tool--- on the vehicle, to make sure all 8 Emission Monitors
have run -------OR YOU WILL FAIL-------

The vehicle needs some diagnostic work,checking, road testing,
component testing, whatever is needed

There obviously are problems, yet to be found & corrected

BEFORE you should even be using it

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.

It senses when the engine pings and the computer will adjust the timing accordingly. It is located in the block.

2003 PT Cruiser - check engine light


Use the correct champion plugs for starters, make sure the wire is firing. If the wire is firing, the coil pack is good. You will need to check compression and fuel delivery after that.

2006 pt cruiser, check engine light came on. Shortly after, gas cap light. Replaced gas cap and reset. Today bith lights came on again.


are you fueling car with key "on"? That will cause light to come on. Disconnect battery for 1 hour and this will reset "keep alive memory" and clear codes from memory. Drive car for 10 miles so computer can relearn engine parameters. It may run rough during this period.

Check engine light goes on for a few days and then resets itself


Sounds like a re-occuring temporary code....take it back to the dealer or Auto Zone and have the code scanned within your 6 start reset limit

2001 PT Cruiser


Car overheats then engine dies going down hill coasting. When try to start, starter spins as if no gas or fire to the plugs. Can this be a sensor flipped by too much heat or lack of coolant ? If so, how do you reset the sensor ?
