Asked by Jan 04, 2015 at 08:20 PM about the 2003 Chrysler PT Cruiser Limited

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

It sounds like it wants to start but it won't. Could this be the fuel pump? I have no signs
of the motor stopping or letting up while driving. My car has 177,000 plus miss, I also
noticed some transmission fluid maybe oil, I just had the oil changed and new ties put
on less than two weeks ago. I also had the rear end fixed, it was making alot of noise
especially when the roads were rough, it was something to do with keeping the rear end
straight. I had not started it for a couple of days and got in to leave and it tried to start
but just would not turn over, than the battery went dead, tried to jump it still no luck.
Could this be my fuel pump, my lights work, just Will not start.

1 Answer


Took it in and it was a cracked gasket, oil was getting to the spark plugs. Fixed.
