Chrysler PT Cruiser Problem Report
Chrysler PT Cruiser Software Updates for Powertrain Control Module Mayl Improve Shift Quality
2.4L 4 cylinder (non-turbo)
Software updates to the Powertrain Control Module (PCM) are available that can improve shift quality for rough up and/or down shifts. On higher mileage vehicles, other problems may cause shifting issues. Diagnoses may be required to isolate the cause. Anytime major transmission repairs are made the PCM software should be checked and updated as necessary.

My pt cruiser down shifts hard when going into 1st gear when coming to a stop. I need to know if this is something that is very serious and should be fixed right away or will it be okay to drive the car like this for awhile. - Andrea2538

I bought this car used 9 months ago and have noticed it's difficult to shift into different gears, was considering relacing clutch all together. Wondering why Chrysler doesn't see all the problems with this type of vehicle and have more recalls instead of consumers having to fork over so much $ when it's a widely known problem. - Visitor
