Chrysler recommends using HOAT (Hybrid Organic Acid Technology) formula coolant in PT Cruiser. If you want to do a partial refill and don’t know which antifreeze has been used in your car, you need to do a complete flushing because HOAT coolants can’t be mixed with other type of fluid.

How to replace a PCV valve

How To Replace A PCV Valve On A 2005 Chrysler PT Cruiser
Share on FacebookTweet about this on TwitterPin on PinterestEmail this to someone

A bad PCV valve can be one possible cause of oil leak. On a 2005 2.4L PT Cruiser, Chrysler recommends that PCV valve should be inspected after 60,000 miles and after 90,000 miles of driving. As it is inexpensive and easy to remove, I suggest you to replace it at one of these intervals.

What you need to replace a PCV valve on a 2005 Chrysler PT Cruiser:

 

A new PCV Valve:
Mopar 4777240AD PCV Valve
Or
FRAM FV405 PCV Valve
Or
Omix-Ada 17404.11 PCV Valve
A 24mm Wrench

In the next picture, you can see the valve location:

What you need to replace an oil pressure sensor on a 2005 Chrysler PT Cruiser:

A pair of jack stands
A jack to lift the car

1/2-Inch Drive 27mm deep socket
1/2-Inch Drive ratchet
A 1/2-Inch universal joint
Eventually a 1/2-Inch drive extension bar
15mm wrench

A defective oil pressure sensor switch may cause an oil leak. The oil light may come on and a P0522 error code can be read on your OBD-2 scan tool.

You can replace this sensor without draining oil.

You need to lift your car onto jack stands.

PT Cruiser sur chandelleLet your engine cool off before working under your car because the oil sensor switch is hard to reach and you could burn your skin.

Go under your car and try to find the oil sensor switch. It’s located to the left of the oil drain plug behind some electrical harness:
