Asked by May 25, 2015 at 06:00 AM about the 2001 Chrysler PT Cruiser Limited

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

My car sounds like I am revving the engine when stopped. It feels like it wants to go
forward, and the threat of stalling out, as it is jerking forward it sounds like it is going to
just shut off, it slightly jerks when in motion, any suggestions?

scan for codes. could be tps iac or other things but it sounds too like a torque converter control solenoid. if u can locate the tcc then unplug it. if the problem "fixes" then it is the tcc.
