I have an 02 PT cruiser and I'm trying to purchase tie rod ends. However, I noticed that there are two kinds: The ones for firm feel and standard suspensions. How do I determine which one my car has? Thanks!

I have an '02 PT cruiser and everytime I turn the steering wheel (either side), I hear a loud growl/grinding noise coming from the front end of the vehicle. From previous oil changes, the mechanic has told me to replace the inner tie rod and the ball joint. Could these be the culprits or is this part of another problem? Thanks!

I entered a receipt for a single tire, but learned later it was not for my car but for somebody altogether different.

car over heat when air condition is on

this has been going on for about a week now while driveing at 55-60 mph when it cut out the speedometer and tach loose power for 1-2 second with the motor cutting out, and the cruise light coming off and on?

I was told my breaks were metal on metal and needed to be immediately repaired.

i have after market urethane bushings that i would like to put on my care and need to know how much it would cost for the labor

tie rod replace

My PT Cruiser is 10 1/2 years old, but has under 49,000 miles on it. It is mostly city driving (San Francisco; lots of hills). I have recently noticed a squeaking noise that is usually only noticeable when there are passengers in the car. Any idea of likely cause? New shocks or bushings needed?

I can purchase the headlamp assembly (passenger and driver side) for around $80. It looks pretty complicated and time consuming to do the job myself. What is the fare market cost for the labor to have this done?

does my car need coolant, or could a fan or temperature gauge be causing this?

not engine light... today i started my car and the ac didn't come on, windows didn't work or signal lights. i stopped it and everything is working again

Appears to only miss, studder when ac is in operation. Also hesitates when accelerating from idle but only with ac running. Check engine light is not lit.

Car runs hot with a/c on and when stopped at light car will run hot until I start moving again then slowly cools down

What is the actual price to buy a new engine for a 2005 PT cruiser?

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.
