      Check engine and transmission mounts if broken. Also check drive belt tension if loose. The a/c freon charge must be checked if low and recharge accordingly.

      I had about the same trouble with my 2007.
      I checked the freon & partial charged the A/C system.
      I wonder if many of the Pt Cruisers loose freon for whatever reason.
      When the freon level gets somewhat low the engine will have an erratic idle & the system won't cool inside the vehicle.

    How often do you change a fuel filter and pump?. can you just change the filter alone?
    the car runs fine and I have followed all scheduled maintenance as recommended in the owners manual. I bought it used in 2002 with 37500 miles on it and it now has 101900 on it. I'm just wondering if that should be part of a scheduled maintenance or not. How ...

      the a/c evaporator could be leaking. When you turn on the defroster the a/c also turns on to dehumidify the air inside the car. the dash usually has to be removed in order to replace it.

      Either the evaporator or the heater core, one or the other. OR, maybe there is a small leak of something in the engine compartment and the smell is getting sucked inside the cabin. '07 evaporator or heater core is possible but the vehicle is still kind of new for that stuff going bad.

    WHAT IS TSB, I SEE A CERTAIN NUMBER FOR THE CHRYLER 2006 300

      Technical Service Bulletins (TSB) are bulletins issued each year by car manufactures with up to date factory fixes to help service departments with common or difficult problems. On TSB’s the manufacturer has no obligation to notify customers or make the repair at no cost. A TSB may include updated part numbers and repair procedures and does not imply an extended warranty for a problem.

      The best thing about finding a TSB that seems to cover a persistent problem in your vehicle is that dealerships will make the repair for free, provided that the vehicle is under warranty and service advisor and/or technicians are able to confirm that the problem exists.

      You will notice that TSB online are just summary, if you want to obtain a full TSB report you can purpose it online or visit forums for your vehicle. All TSB's are submitted to NHTSA, as required by law, where they become a matter of public record and will also be provided to vehicle owners upon request.

    The yellow exclamation mark has been lit on my dash for over four months. Not sure why. Any help?
    I have checked the tire pressure, and everything was fine. I have even had new tires put on, but it still isn't going off.

      A code P0172 may mean that one or more of the following has happened:

      * The MAF (Mass Air Flow) Sensor is dirty or faulty. Note: The use of "oiled" air filters can cause the MAF to become dirty if the filter is over-oiled. There is also an issue with some vehicles where the MAF sensors leak the silicone potting material used to protect the circuitry.
      * There could be a vacuum leak.
      * There could be a fuel pressure or delivery problem

      Possible solutions include:

      * Inspect all vacuum and PCV hoses, replace if necessary
      * Cleanthe MAF sensor. Consult your service manual for it's location if you need help. I find it's best to take it off and spray it with electronics cleaner or brake cleaner. Make sure you are careful not to damage the MAF sensor, and make sure it's dry before reinstalling
      * Inspect fuel lines for cracks, leaks, or pinches
      * Check the fuel pressure at the fuel rail
      * Check the fuel injectors, they may be dirty. Use fuel injector cleaner or get them professionally cleaned/replaced.
      * Check for an exhaust leak before the first oxygen sensor (this is unlikely to cause the problem, but it is possible)

      A code P0175 may mean that one or more of the following has happened:

      * The MAF (Mass Air Flow) Sensor is dirty or faulty. Note: The use of "oiled" air filters can cause the MAF to become dirty if the filter is over-oiled
      * There could be a vacuum leak.
      * There could be a fuel pressure or delivery problem

      Possible solutions include:

      * Inspect all vacuum and PCV hoses, replace if necessary
      * Clean the MAF sensor. Consult your service manual for it's location if you need help. I find it's best to take it off and spray it with electronics cleaner or brake cleaner. Make sure you are careful not to damage the MAF sensor, and make sure it's dry before reinstalling

      P0700 is a pcm trouble code that basicly says there is more trouble codes in the trans controller side of the pcm. it could mean something simple like a bad speed sensor or some kinda bad like a loss of prime. gear ratio error codes can be caused by faulty sensors.

      There are some other checks that might need be done, but I can tell that you just need a direction. That being said, most often, the cause of the codes P0172, P0175 are caused by a bad Downstream Oxygen (O2) Sensor so I am saying replace that and then update me. The downstream sensor is the one after the cat. The P0700 means that there is a fault code stored in the transmission control module that needs a different reader to access.

      Drain the coolant. Remove the thermostat housing and thermostat, located on the lower left side of the block. It may be necessary to relocate the accessories on that side to gain access. Remove the upper radiator hose from the aluminum lower intake manifold water outlet (gooseneck) on the top side of the engine. With the thermostat removed (lower left of engine) one will notice a small drilled hole, in the upper part of the cavity, about the diameter of a pencil. Use shop air and blow air into this small hole. The air should exit at the top of the engine on the left cylinder head out the lower intake water outlet (gooseneck). Use shop rags to catch debris from re-entering the cooling system. Due to the different design of the 3.5L, it may be necessary to remove the lower intake and possibly the left cylinder head to remove the debris. There is a machined pocket in the cylinder head that can trap material. Debris can be aluminum chips and casting sand. Flush the entire cooling system as well. It is likely the radiator has some debris in it as well. Try it without removing the cylinder head.
