I have a 2005 pt cruiser touring edition, automatic transmission. It doesn't happen all the time, but lately when i'm driving the transmission does not change gears when in drive. it runs about 3500-4000 rpms @ 40 mph. I have run a diagnostic on it and they said it was transmission control module issue (sorry, i don't remember the exact code). It happens about 50% of the time.
My car locks are going off and on automatically without me pushing any buttons
Runs very good while driving down the Rd with AC running, med vibration at stops. When I shift to nuetral it's not as bad but still has some vibration, shut off ac it's fine. Going to see if it changes with warm up or warmer weather today. Thanks on point I recall the idle slightly below 1000rpm not now, seems to be sensitive to types of fuel. Serviced the car after purchased it with: new plugs, wires, cleaned the throttle body. When the ac is off there is very little vibration! A mechanic said it's the motor mounts but why would it only vibrate with the ac engaged. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Thank you!
Starts but dies like immediately
Car shut down while driving, error code p0430 which is cam POS. Sensor, and another code which was oil pressure switch. Engine light was on prior to this but would go off every so often. It's like no fire or not getting fuel. Fuel pump works. I am about to lose everything if this car doesn't go! I provide for my 3 boys, and we're about to b homeless, I've spent every penny I had on it and still it sets!! Please somebody help me!!
My check engine light came on and I have had 3 different work on car & add parts. The problem boils down to this. Every morning car has to be jumped off to get it started. It runs fine & starts the rest of day. So everything has been checked over & some parts have been changed. Now they are saying the computer in car is not working correctly. I will gladly take it to somewhere that can fix it but don't know where to go. Probably the closest place is Nashville , Tn. Please help. This car has run perfectly for 12 years & I had kept the maintenance up always.
