my girlfriend managed to let the car give out of gas. put gas in it but it will not start. some say there is a switch, depending on the part store (1)there is a switch and others say there is not. it will turn but not fire up, (2) others say timing belt went out the same time and (3) finally it could be the fuel pump. any suggestions

My wife's 05 PT Cruiser has an occasional groan in the Steering Column after backing up then turning, we have had it in the shop 5-6 times and they still have not resolved the problem, it started like the 2nd. day after we bought it last year (09). It is still under extended warrenity. Does anyone have any ideas for us to tell the Service dept. as they seem to be in the dark?? - Charlie

Hi, Yesterday the car was driving fine. I stopped and bought some stamps and when I was leaving the parking lot the power steering on my Cruiser just quit. It briefly came back but now it is gone. There are no strange noises and the fluid level is good. Would someone tell me what they think the problem is? I'm probably going to have this fixed in a shop . Any idea of the cost of repair? Thanks for any help.

2004 and mine did the same thing, Ran out of gas and wouldnt start. Ended up being the timing chain,. But since fixed. Ive got a whine in the power steering, its been to the shop i bought it from twice and its still not fixed. I have a clicking sound in the area of the pump as well. Im so affraid this used dealer is gonna screw me over. I have a service aggreement still good for 6kmiles or 6mths. they made it worse since trying to fix it. I THINK ITS A LEMON... chrysler 2004 has a recall item dealing with power steering. Im calling dealer to see if mine was changed.. good luck....

I wonder how the steering problem worked out for you. Our Cruiser treated us to three days over Thanksgiving to a motel beside the I-95 in Florida while the steering pump was replaced. Stopped for gas and the steering quit. Nice it didn't do it on the freeway.
