    Check engine light on, no code reading, rough idle, loud engine, low gas milage.
    I have a 2007 PT Cruiser Touring Edition and the check engine light has been on for 2 months. I have checked and replaced the gas cap. Recently, the gas milage has significantly depleted, from 16-17 MPG to 10-11 MPG. It is winter, and I'm aware that plays a role but ...

      A bad battery will not allow current to pass through the starting circuit by jumping, have the battery checks at the local auto parts stores for free of charge.

      a 3/4 charge battery is 12.50 volts
      A discharge battery is 11.75 volts.
      A battery under a cranking load and it is reading less than 7 volts,it will be a recycled battery.

    Can blown head gaskets , have any effects on the valves
    yes I have blown head gaskets, can that effect the valves, like bend valves, and what else can it effect.

      Not really any direct effect on the valves. The poor engine seal / head gasket will affect; loss of power, difficult to start.

      Sounds like your battery is shot. Go buy a new battery.

    Multiple warning lights on
    Driving car down the road and the engine light,ABS light,ESP/BAS light and Brake light all came on and stay on and the speedometer and navigation quit working but car runs great . Checked all fuses all were ok, What is causing these problems ?

      Is the battery original (7 year old & done) ?

      If only a year or two old it still could fail or the
      charging system --test those areas

      Check for OBD Codes

      I think your best to have a shop work on it

      When the vehicle runs out of gas, the fuel pump is pumping debris into the fuel filter and clogging the gas from flowing.Replace the fuel filter and spray a little starting fluid in the throttle valve body, a good chance the engine combustion will draw the fuel to flow again.

    My car won't start suspect the starter or starter relay .
    I took apart the starter relay to examine internally and notice it sometimes clicks and there's a ark turning ignition
     
    • GT500Knights

      A relay is supposed to make a clicking noise every time it engages. The way a relay works is by using a low amperage circuit with a coil to magnetize a switch inside of it. The current flows through the low current side of the relay (activated by a switch like the ignition switch), energized the coil and creates a magnetic field. The magnetic field attracts the high amperage side of the relay to engage and complete the circuit.

      If you want to test the starter itself, you will want to attempt to connect the s terminal of the starter solenoid to b+. If if the starter motor spins and engages the engine flywheel, starter motor is good. If the starter motor engages but makes a high pitch whining noise, it is spinning but not engaging the flywheel, and starter motor replacement is necessary.

    Why won't my car start until the temp gauge reads cool after it warms up
    My car will start fine and runs fine, when the temp gauge reaches the normal spot just below 1/2 and u turn engine off it will start again immediately, but if u wait literally 1 minute it will not start again until the temp gauge reads Cool.
