Chrysler PT Cruiser QuestionsRefine by vehicle
I had trouble with driver seat mechanism and now air bag light stays on, why?
Took my cruiser to be repaird, car switches off while driving or sitting still and jerks. I have never had a check engine light to come on. The mechanic states that the computer is bad in the car and it's what's causing my car to run the way it is. Can anyone tell me if this is true?

I purchased the car from the original owner and it was very well taken care of. It's a fully loaded Limited Edition. I had my mechanic check everything and he says it's in great condition. He told me to find out if the belt has ever been replaced as a preventative measure, as of now there are no problems or symptoms pertaining to the timing belt. I thought he only asked me about that because maybe these cars are known to having problems with the timing belt once they hit a certain amount of miles.
My check engine light started to come on. It would go out on its own. Now it also occ flashes. I had the spark plugs and wires replaced and then coil pack replaced. It came on again when the car was idling in driveway for several minutes as well as at a stop light for a period of time. When I accelerate the flashing light promptly goes back out or back to solid. Now it is pretty much staying on again, alternating w short periods of flashing (mostly when sitting at a light, etc). The codes were showing misfires in cylinders. Oddly, now my airbag light is staying on. I am in the process of trading my car in so I don't need the inconvenience of lights on or costly repairs. Obviously, the engine light reflecting a problem will impact the value at trade-in. The local mechanic is at a bit of a loss.
do I need a new battery or can something else be wrong. I had a battery jump last week and the car started. now it won't after a jump

A mechanic checked it for me and said it is telling him it is a missfire problem. I notice also, that the engine compartment is very hot - the hood is hot to the touch. The temp gauge is at the halfway mark

I'm trying to surprise my husband with new front floor mats for Christmas. They are no longer available through Chrysler. His car color is Shale Green and the original floor mats were "dark taupe." I don't know what color to order to try to match them -- and I don't know whether to include a grommet or not. HELP! Thank you!

The parts are new. please include labor cost as well.
In the well closest to the oil filler cap, there is oil. There's no burning oil on the engine, so I don't think it's a crack in te engine. Any ideas on what it is and how to clean it?
P0613 code. Took car to transmission shop. They replaced the TCM with an after market unit. Took a week to get and had to be programmed by Chrysler. Failed the next morning and went back into limp in mode and displayed P0613 code again. Repair shop replaced TCM with Chrysler OEM part and had them program it again. Failed 5 hours later. Same P0613 code. Back in the shop at Chrysler. I can turn off power and it resets after about 2-3 shutdowns. Transmission shifts smoothly after reset. Pulling my hair out!!!!!!
