2008 Chrysler PT Cruiser Owner Comments

problem #2

I had a check engine light which was diagnosed as P0303 - misfire on the 3rd cylinder. I changed the spark plugs, spark plug wires, oxygen sensors. The light was still on. Took it into Chrysler and found out that I need a new head gasket. Before I reminded them I had the lifetime powertrain owner, I was told it would be over $2,000. I asked how this happens at just 70K miles and was told that "sometimes parts just go bad." %$%^$#!!! Thank goodness I had the warranty!
