CHRYSLER PT CRUISER ENGINE PROBLEM

2003 Chrysler PT Cruiser • 74,000 miles

It will start up, but as soon as you take your foot off of the accelerator it will die, if you keep a high rev it will drive. But runs fine when warm

Is the check engine light on?

Sounds like a vacuum leak or a bad idle air control.

No lights visible when engine running

Still have it scanned as it may have a pending code

Roy

Okies. My thoughts where, as I have just (last sunday) bought the car to get it serviced

as a side question - when does the timing belt get changed?

100k is recommended

Roy

Thank you roy.

You say 100k. That would be around 62000 miles uk

and a uk spec crusier would be no different from an usa spec crusier

(that was this weeks probably real stupid question of the week!)
