    Engine misfires and revs high
    no compression in #1 cyclinder and metal shaving in oil when changed

      I recommend checking ignition timing and does compression test to your engine. Check also for deteriorating spark plug cables and remove the carbon deposits that may be present in your combustion chamber.

      I believe you got the P0440 EVAP leak.

      Aside from replacing the fuel tank cap, it can be that your purge solenoid has failed or the cannister is plugged. Have a mechanic use a smoke machine to detect leaks

      You mean there's not a domed structure where the top hose from the radiator goes into the block (on top of the motor somewhere)? Usually, you just pull that little structure that the hose attaches to off and you find the thermostat inside the little structure. If you find it, make note of which way is up and put the new (maybe hotter temp. range) one in the same way. You can put them in upside down.

      Are you sure its a filter or it just looks like a filter because as far as i know there is no such thing as a filter underneath the seat of any car. The only filters i know in any car is the cabin and engine air filter. The cabin filter on your car is on the glove box, well the other ones location is quite obvious.

      Did those guys in Chrysler create a fart filter? Hehehehe

      Sorry but im clueless on this one

    The engine is not working well
    ill be driving and than ill barely step on the gas and the rpm goes all the way up to like 8 and than the car does not go any faster always having to pull over and restart the car

      Probably you have a bad fuel pressure regulator and it's best to have it checked, and if replacement is needed. Or, your oxygen sensor is giving a lean mixture input to the ECU resulting to pump an increased fuel mixture to the combustion. It is also possible that your air filter is blocked; restraining sufficient air flow to the combustion, and thus it causes a rich mixture. Check also your catalytic converter it may be choked resulting for increased backpressure that can strangle engine performance, particularly at highway speeds. Fuel economy may also be down.

    Why do i get intermitent spark when my car is not startiing?
    1) Car stalled at a traffic light and has not restarted. 2)First inspection revealed fuel pump not working. Replaced fuel pump. Now getting gas. Still wont start. 3)Checked for spark and found only intermitent spark. Changed coil pack. Still not starting.

      crank and cam sesnors send the signal for when to spark, try checking those, also could be the coil pack, check the power to the coil pack, also check the signal to the coil pack, there is always the chance you got a defective part.

      this means either the sensor is bad or there is a problem with the wiring or connectors to the sensor, inspect the sensor and the wiring if the wiring looks good then it is probably the sensor

      Possible the fuel pump pressure is low or the air/fuel filter is blocked. Consider also PCV valve is clogged. Is the check engine appears? If yes, try to have your engine scanned to retrieve the DTC. Visit any parts shops that offers free computer scanning to read trouble code store in the ECU.

      Check fault codes, this is a must. Buy a code reader and attach it and read the codes. Repost with the codes, otherwise it is just conjecture and guesswork. My "guess" is a bad crankshaft position sensor or a bad camshaft sensor. Both of these sensors will set codes when they fail in most cases.

    When I am driving along at any given time the car suddenly bucks. Like it is about to stall at 70 miles per hour.
    2001 crysler pt cruiser. The problem happens at random when I am just driving along. I have not had it looked at because it runs perfectly unless that happens and there is no way to know when it will occur.
    • HouseCallAuto

      Always attach a code reader and see if there are any fault codes present with this situation. I suspect a bad cam or crank sensor.

      Did you already check your radiator fins for obstructions on the flow of air that dissipate the heat in your coolant? It is also possible that you need to flush your radiator to eliminate any contamination in your coolant and cleans your radiator.

      Could also be a bad thermostat.

      Yes it could be JoeKU but Micha said thermostat is new (unless it is not properly installed).

    My car wont start at all.
    Car won’t start at times. Changed spark plugs and cables now it won’t start at all. Engine won’t crank. Notice corroded battery connectors, cleaned connectors, no change. Battery cables look suspect (cracked).

      Did your suspicion to your battery cables verified? In case you decided to replaced your battery cables just visit this link to have an idea how to perform it

      Did you already check the condition of your battery (cranking amperage/voltage/state of charge) and its terminals/cables?
