Is it a remanufactured alternator. It sounds like you either got a faulty alternator or a wire is hooked up incorectly to it. I would test the voltage on the new one to make sure it wasnt a lemon If you are sure the wires are hooked up correctly.

SOURCE: Engine motor mounts on 2001 PT Cruiser

Place a block of wood under the engine sump to prevent damage when you jack up the engine to take the tension off the mount. Make sure you do not jack the engine up too much as you might damage the exhaust,cooling hoses etc.

Testimonial: "This didn't help, because you had to remove the engine structural collar under the starter to get at the starter bolt. It was more complicated."

Overheating is caused by:

3. Low coolant level.
4. stuck thermostat
5. hoses collapsing.
6. Air lock in system
7. Bad fins on water pump.

I have a 2008 pt cruiser, i don't know where to add water... does anyone know or are there any demonstrations that would be helpful to me?


Kecia, where are you putting in the coolant, that is where you want to add distilled water. Save yourself some trouble and buy premixed coolant then you do not have to add water. If not using premixed coolant, mix coolant and water 50/50, or half distilled water half coolant before you pour it in cooling system. It also sounds like you are having a overheating issue which you should have looked at sooner then later. Check the attached links,instruction and guides, Good luck

Radiator fan on my 2001 pt cruiser only engages when the air conditioner is on. When the heat is on the fan doesn't work causing the car to overheat. Do I need a new fan?


probably not . There are fuses to check and a relay to check as well as the coolant temperature sensor to check . If the engine overheats when you have the heater on it suggests an air lock in the cooling system . Have the system pressure bled along with all the other checks.

01 pt cruiser is overheating only when the a/c is on have changed radiator cap, thermostate, relays and sensor that tells the fan when to turn on and off


Make sure your radiator isn't clogged or dirty, then it's very important to know at how many degrees do the sensor that you bought activate the fans (It's written on the sensor). Be sure that is no more than 80°C (176°F), cause most of those sensors activate above 100°C (212°F) at that point the water of the radiator is already boiling so you don't want that. After that the radiator cap should be 16psi of pressure to open if it's below 16psi change it. Finally buy a good antifreezer/coolant (I would recommend Prestone Antifreezer/coolant)

Need to replace a Thermostat on a 2001 PT Cruiser. Have the new Thermostat need insturctions on how to do the replacement.


Most thermostats are located in the upper radiator hose housing mounted to engine block. Make sure engine is cold put a catch pan under your car to catch any antifreeze that comes out. Remove the two bolts holding the housing on the engine and remove thermostat and gasket. Clean engine block where gasket goes very good and also the housing, have to remove all gasket material so when installing new one it will seal and wont cause a leak. Make sure when you put the thermostat back in it goes in spring side down towards engine. Replace housing and bolts. replace lost coolant with a 50/50 mixture in your recovery tank. Start engine let heat to temp and check for leaks.

2001 pt cruiser no heat


did you check the fluid level by removing the rad. cap? Radiator should be full to top. If Chryslers are low on coolant, the heater will not blow warm air.
