Question about 2005 Chrysler PT Cruiser
I have a 2005 PT Cruiser with 40K miles on it. I had an oil change on Monday; this morning (2 days later) my check engine light came on and won't go off? Should I drive it like that, what is it and what is this going to cost me??
To answer those ?s, the computer needs to be scanned to remove the codes, these codes will give you a general idea of the problem,autozone will scan it for free,depending on the problem ,it may be under factory emmisions warranty,i would have this checked before continuing to drive could cause more damage depending on the problem, it can be as simple as a loose fuel cap,but have autozone scan it first, hope this helps.

The only way to determine what is wrong and what it will cost to fix is to scan for codes that triggered the light to go on. The oil change should not have anything to do with the light (just check the oil to make sure they filled it to the proper level.) If oil level is ok, you can drive it, but have it checked soon because it could cause other problems if ignored for too long. Go to a parts store, most offer free checks of check engine light. They will plug a hand held scan tool into the PT's diagnostic port, and 'read' codes stored on the cars computer. These codes 'trigger' the check engine light to go on. They can then tell you the code#'s, what they mean, and how to fix the problem. If at that point you have any questions, post them and the code #'s here.
