Notes: Chrysler has taken the boring small car frame of the Neon, grafted a 1930s-era roadster body on top and named it the PT Cruiser. While the new look may appeal to some, the vehicle has unfortunately also inherited many of the same problems as the Neon.

PT Cruiser Limited 2.4L

My PT Cruiser was skipping really bad with only 2 cylinders firing. So I tracked it down to the PCM. If I would have gotten a mechanic to do the job it would have cost me $2,000.
