How much would it cost to fix? Is this a regular problem?

PT Turbo Limited edition purchased for granddaughter last week with 19,071 orig. one owner miles. (backed up by Carfax.)
Because of future low miles less than 5,000 per yr. Time wise when should the following be flushed due to age not mileage: coolant? brake fluid? power steering fluid? transaxle (Automatic ATF and or filter)?

When I turn my /c knob to the left for face air the knob wants to rebound back. It will only go as far as 12 o clock position then when max a/c is turned on sounds like some valve is trying to open making a knocking noise and air only comes out of defrost vents!!

My car smokes a lot especially when started. I just bought the car. Took it to AutoZone and had the diagnostic test done. A code came up that meant cylinder 2 was misfiring.

The gas gage also goes down to 0. Happens on a 20 mile trip about 1 or 2 times now. Please help.

The dials went back and forth. I pulled off the road. Turned it back on and it was fine. This morning it did the same thing without the dials moving. I stopped, restarted. Is there something wrong in the gas line?

slow . I had newver noticed it before but now its louder and other people can hear it too. I've heard axle, struts or posssible shocks. What to do? I'm all tapped out. Will I have to get both sides done. Noise only on right front.


Help!!!!!!

If I'm idling at a light sometimes it acts like its not getting any fuel and then does a big jolt, or when I get ready to take off from a light it sometimes acts like it's not getting any fuel. It eventually goes as normal. I understand this vehicle does not have a fuel filter so what would be causing it to run rough?

Bubbling sounds overheating

AT 40-50 MPH LIGHTS ON DASH FLICKER,IT LOSES POWER AND GAUGES GO CRAZY. I CANNOT GET THIS TO DUPLICATE WHEN I TAKE TO DEALER BUT I SEE ON OTHER SIGHTS THIS IS A VERY COMMON PROBLEM. GROUNDS HAVE ALL BEEN CHECKED. IT IS VERY DANGEROUS WHEN IN TRAFFIC

The dealer now has me doing a Milage test but I need a second opinion before I call him with results

My pt cruiser only has 41,000 miles I have taken very good care of it and despite bringing attention to the dealer that I have heard of major drive train issues with cruisers , he assured me that he researched and that problem was in 2005 and 2006 and had been corrected. Now my drive train is bad and I owe on the car for four more years and don't have two grand to fix it. hELP. Anyone else have this problem?

This morning, when I started up my car, it was shaking a bit. After turning the car off and on twice the car felt normal, but the engine light was still on. The car also seemed fine the night before. According to the diagnostic from autozone it said it was a third cylinder malfunction. What does this mean, and does anyone have any idea what it costs to fix?
