March 17, 2007Can anyone help me? I just bought a battery and a alternator for our 2001 Pt Cursior. After we put the alternator on and started the car it stays in high idol and the engine mkes a weird noise like voorum voorum. It hard to put it in words. Please can anyone help?

March 18, 2007First make sure you re-connected all of your wire harnesses that were unplugged (it's easy to miss one) after that I would say re-set the computer by dis-connecting the battery for a few minutes. I assume you already did that since you bought a new one, but I would try it anyway.
Beyond that I would not be able to help you on this matter. Hopefully someone else will chime in with more info.
Posting up in general discussions may help. A lot of people don't check this section very often.
March 18, 2007Oh yea, Welcome to the forum. Lot's of good people here that will do their best to help you out.
March 19, 2007Welcome.
Agree w/Bamalam. Suspect you disconnected either a vacuum line or an electrical connection...
March 19, 2007She sent me a PM letting me know it was a vacuum line. Not sure why she didn't just post it here. So anyway, it's fixed.

March 20, 2007Who needs to go to the dealer to fix a problem when we've got plenty of owners here that may have experienced the same problem. It's great that some of us can share our experiences so maybe we can fix the problem ourselves if it happens to us.
