Customer Question
When I first turn...

When I first turn the key there will be clicking and when I try it again, it usually starts but turns over really slow.

Mechanic's Assistant: Is the car in "Park" or "Neutral?" Do you know if your car has a "wheel lock" feature?

In park

Mechanic's Assistant: What is the model/year of your Chrysler?

2004

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your vehicle yourself? What have you tried so far?

It had a lot of corrosion on the battery terminals so we cleaned those off really well. It also sputters occasionally when driving. It is a PT Cruiser by the way

Hello In will help,

Sounds like your battery cables need to be cleaned and tightened and then test the battery at an autoparts store as it may be failing.

Please let me know how I can help you with this

Thanks

What Customers are Saying:

I was skeptical at first but thought I'd give it a try. I was pleasantly surprised. Your site actually is a quality service that I would recommend to others in a heartbeat.

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.
