February 1, 2008Driving along the freeway last week sittin on 60MPH and the engine just stopped. Pulled off the road checked the oil, it was full, so was the fuel, got back in and it started then drove home, it didn't do it again. My question, has anyone else had this happen? My car is a 2005 Classic with 2.4L and auto. Thank you.
February 2, 2008I'm not too sure, never had this happen to me. Kinda sounds like a faulty spark plug or possibly water in the gas tank. I've had times when I fill up with gas and have problems with the engine not responding well, kind of like a big studder. Next time I filled up, no problems. Maybe you have more water in your gas, any studdering of the engine??
I'm not much of a mechanic at all, just going off of of some of my experiences.
February 2, 2008No studdering, it was running fine and just cut out.
February 2, 2008Engine light come on?
I searched around, found this one:
February 11, 2008I just had this problem I even posted my own tread to see if anyone had the some problem before . Then a guy at work with a PT had the same problem but his check engine light came on and the car would not start it was the cam postion sensor two bolts and replace it and the problem was gone so I want to the dealer and pick one up $50.00 have'nt had a problem for a week now .
February 12, 2008I took mine on a 180 mile trip last weekend waiting for it to happen again, nothing happened. I will have to wait and see if it does it on the next trip.
I will have to check and see how much a new cam sensor is here in Australia just in case i have to get one.
February 12, 2008No Joke PT your cam position sensor should have been covered by the 7/70 warranty 7/70, so why the $50!
February 15, 2008I lent my PT to my dad once for a 3-hour cruise (A Gilligan reference?) and it happened to him. He said this happened to him in a previous Chrysler he owned. It has never happened to me...and I've put 40k on the car. Weird.
February 22, 2008Qman,
Yes it was covered by warranty but sense I left it with them for a full day and they could not figure out what was wrong. I just got the part and replace it myself.
Everyone is scared to touch my car because they do not want something to happen and lost their job.
