Customer Question
2006 Chrysler turbo pt cruiser. 96000...
2006 Chrysler turbo pt cruiser.
96000 miles.
Multi misfire. Engine head and top end refinished 2 days ago.
It runs great until you are going over 60mph and then floor it. Then it starts jerking and engine light comes on and off.
If I drive it just regular and ease to 60 or 80mph, it's fine?
Does not have a stalling issue.

Does it act like there is a rpm limiter such as not wanting to go over 4000 rpm? Thanks.

it wants to haul ass, but if I floor it and it hits the higher rpms, then it starts the jerking and engine light blinking until I let my foot off abit, then it is fine and light goes off and then it drives normal

Hello!!!!!
Chrysler Mechanic: Dan, Technician replied 12 months ago

If it acts like it hits a rpm limiter that is a common symptom of a clogged catalytic converter. You can completely remove front oxygen sensor from exhaust to relieve exhaust pressure. If it runs better with oxygen sensor removed you know the converter is clogged. Let me know if you have more questions or if there is anything else I can do to help. Thanks.

Not clogged. Engine just rebuilt for this issue. Passed all test.
Issue still as I stated.
Chrysler Mechanic: Dan, Technician replied 12 months ago

How do you know it isn't' clogged? This symptom pretty much always means a clogged converter if it will not go over 4000 rpm.

I can hit red line if I ease into it. This only happens when I floor it
Chrysler Mechanic: Dan, Technician replied 12 months ago

The only other thing that comes to mind is a weak ignition coil but I'd still recommend removing oxygen sensor to see if it helps. If not, check to see if each coil jumps a 25kv gap.

It goes over 4000rpm. I just can't floor and take it over that ramp instantly with ease.
Customer reply replied 12 months ago
It's like there is a limiter if you floor it
Customer reply replied 12 months ago

StanSayre, PA

I AM VERY GLAD THAT I TOOK A CHANCE ON YOUR PROBLEM SOLVING SKILLS. I WAS SUCCESSFUL IN REPLACING THE FUEL PUMP. MY TRUCK RUNS LIKE A CLOCK. IT RUNS LIKE THE DAY I BOUGHT IT. NO LUNGING FORWARD, THE TURBO REACTS THE SECOND I STOMP ON THE GAS, AND IT HAS A LOT MORE POWER AND EVEN SOUNDS BETTER TO ME. IT SAVED ABOUT $500.00 BY DOING THE WORK MYSELF. I GIVE YOU ALL THE CREDIT FOR YOUR DIAGNOSING THE PROBLEM, JUST FROM THE SYMPTONS I GAVE YOU OVER THE e MAIL. I WILL USE YOUR WEB SITE AGAIN AND REFER MY FRIENDS. THANKS SO MUCH FOR THE HELP.
