You should replace the oil every 3,000 miles or 3 months. Unless you are using synthetic oil. With synthetic you can go to 10,000 miles. But I change mine at 7,500.

Stop by any good parts store and have an OBII scan (fault scan) Autozone, Advance parts stores do this for FREE. They will pull the codes, and will identify what triggered light.

How do you remove the spark plugs in a 2008 automatic chrysler pt cruiser? Do you have to remove the manifold and replace the gasket to change the spark plugs?


I think you can reuse the gasket (rubber) just take out the bolts and position it out of the way enough to get plugs in and out. Be sure to replace the timing belt, tensioner and water pump at 90k miles....or youll be sorry.

Pt cruiser engine light came on what is wrong? The light is orange and shaped like a little engine. Do i need to just change the oil?


This light tells you that the engine or transmission needs attention. It's not going to blow up if you keep driving it for a little while, if it's still running (red lights, like oil pressure, mean to stop RIGHT NOW).

Just changing the oil is probably not going to make the light go out. The light was turned on by the engine's computer, and indicates that the computer got a bad reading from one (or more) sensors located throughout the engine and transmission. Most auto parts stores can hook up a code reader to your car and read the trouble code stored by your computer. The trouble code indicates what system is not working properly and that may tell you what to replace to fix it. Or it may require more in-depth testing to determine the exact problem.

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.
