My car got the turbo replaced a couple of months ago due to lost of power, now the car was running good for a month or two but now makes way too much white smoke on the exhaust right on start, the car doesn't get hot and oil change was done recently.

Yestersay a garage wanted to charge 800 dolars o do it. It ran hot one day. Took it in the nexst day fior a pressure test and it passed. However water is still overflowinfg and I hear gurggling when I stop.

I have replaced my slave/master cylinder but cant seem to get the system bled.

was driving 2001 pt cruiser blinking battery light came on replaced battery but light still blinking. Replaced alternator but battery light still blinking what could be the problem

Oil pressure light continue to come on so I would like to replace the oil pressure/sending switch

Sounds almost like a jet engine, with a hint of a whine, at all speeds; runs a bit sluggish, and seems to burn fuel faster than usual. Mechanic said catalytic converter was blocked and he unclogged it, which helped when it was much more sluggish (it actually chugged along); but engine is still very loud.

hi, I noticed that my girlfriend pt cruise did not have any tail lights or brake lights, but the third brake light works fine. can someone tell me what this could be? thanks

System cools for a little bit then cycles and lug the motor down when it cycle on the off.

I drove the car on Saturday and it fine until we got closer to the house. The oil light came on and then it turned off and the car started running really funny. Then we hard a knocking sound in the engine. Once we got home we added a quart and a half of oil and let it run through the engine and the knocking sound got lower. Then we let the car sit all night and woke up the next checked the oil levels again and they were fine. We started the car to see if it was still knocking and when you press the accelerator it was knocking. What is wrong with my car and how much will it cost to get fixed?

came out to start car, after running it an hour earlier, will not start, it will crank but wont start,

My car started shifting up and or down with out me doing it. I have checked all my fluids and there fine. When it kicks down it feels as if my engine has just dropped out from underneath my car.. Or my rpm's are wanting to get in the ranges of 3-5 b4 shifting. I thought it was transmission but it only does it occasionally. My fluids are fine.. What can this be? Please I need help on this one.


Constantly getting a code po325 but when I check oil it checks find

I was told it could be bearing than I was told the bearing are sealed.

when engine is running it makes a screeching type noise also was told that their is play in the turbine shaft

The light was on one other time, but it went off after a couple of days. This time, the traction control light has been on for more than 2 weeks. I noticed the steering wheel shuddering when I brake at higher speeds. I believe the light came on when I put the car in reverse and started backing up before releasing the brake. Is there a way for me to turn this light off? I just bought this car used, and it had no books.

While I was driving down the high way my cars speed stated to decrease rapidly, it completly stopped, as I was stepping on the gas petal!! When I tried to start it, it would not start back up at all!! A week before that it over heated but once I turned the car off then back on it worked fine...can someone plz help and explain what happen??..I need a car and need to know what's going on

I changed the plugs & wires and it stilles gives me the po301 code. Could it be the idle control valve. Please tell me how to change it. when i changed the plugs the #1 & 3 plugs had a burnt electrod so those cylinders seem to be fireing.

I have noticed it just every once in a while, but if I stop and restart the PT while on, it goes off. Everything runs fine. I noticed it the after I got the oil changed for the first time, but the oil level is okay?

I have just installed a power outlet in the rear of my 2008 PT Cruiser base model. The user manual says it should be hot all of the time. Unfortunately, it shuts off when the car does. I have shifted the number 11 fuse to see if that fixed it...Nope. Any other suggestions?
