2004 Chrysler PT Cruiser Q&A
2004 Chrysler PT Cruiser Question: BELTS SQUEELING
I JUST PAID OVER $800.00 TO REPLACE THE TIMING BELT ON MY 2004 CRUISER. WHEN I GET MY CAR BACK FROM THE MECHANIC MY AIR CONDITION ISN'T WORKING ANYMORE AND MY BELTS ARE SQUEELING LIKE A STUCK PIG!! WHAT DID HE SCREW UP? SHOULD I REPLACE THESE BELTS? MY CAR HAS 94,000 AND ITS PROBABLY TIME TO CHANGE THEM ANYWAY, BUT HOW DO I KNOW ITS NOT THE TENSIONER OR A PULLEY. LIKE I SAID MY CAR WASN'T DOING ANY OF THIS WHEN I TOOK IT TO THE MECHANIC TO FIX THE TIMING BELT. - Angie.P
Maybe the belts aren't tight enough. If they're original they shoud be replaced anyway. Bring it back to the mechanic and see what he says; give him a chance to fix it. - Superbob
