Engine Performance problem
2003 Chrysler PT Cruiser 4 cyl Front Wheel Drive Automatic 73,000 miles
My 2003 PT Cruiser GT has been haunting me with a misfire code for the past 4 months and it's time for it to go! The symptoms I receive are as follows; very hard to get started, idles very rough, and sometimes the engine dies when there is a large load on the engine (lights, radio, heater on while braking). Funny thing is, when the engine warms up, it starts right away, and while driving it seems to run wonderfully. I have changed the spark plugs and wires. The wires are the correct gauge and the plugs are gapped to the right size. I don't want to go to a shop since I am mechanically inclined, and I am trying my best to avoid a pricey troubleshooting process. Especially with today's economy! I would appreciate any advice you can offer guys!
