Why would someone buy the monstrosity commonly known at the PT Cruiser?

Question 1
Why would someone buy the monstrosity commonly known at the PT Cruiser?...  I really want to know what drives someone do buy one....
I just been informed that it is not known as the PT "Cruiser" but the PT "Crapper" or the PT "Loser". Thank you for the update.
You trolls think you are sooo cool. And I'm a person, not a thing to be bought. So no I don't have a million people spending money on me, but then again, I don't care. So why don't you trolls just go back under your brodge with your PT Losers?

1)   I feel your pain. I'm gonna guess that whatever it is, it's the same thing that makes people eat cheez wiz, wear ultra-baggy sweatpants, get tramp stamps, and make the duckface when posing for pictures. If you find out let me know. - Price

2)'s commonly referred to as the PT Crapper. Why would someone drive one? Because they're f-ing retarded.

Oh and...Cheese Whiz is awesome...shut up about that. - Hank Scorpio

3)   even the pinto had its followers. if you dont like the car then dont buy one. i have an aunt that owned one while back she liked it. - mdk68gto, ase certified m tech

4)   Nostalgia (looks like 1940's car). . . retro.

Also it is roomy.

Unlike the real McCoy (old cars), it is modern, so it gets fairly good gas mileage. - TardisAndTheHare

5)   Over a million sold. How many people spend money on you? You should be as lucky. Too bad you're not cool. - C-Tech

6)   yeah the PT Loser is what I used to call mine - Light Ceasar

7)   Some people just like them. - done wrenching

Question 2
is there any way to unjam a gear shaft on a minivan without calling a mechanic?...  i cant turn my ignition on my Town & Country because I believe the gear shaft is jammed and the car may not fully be in park
can you describe the shifter linkage a little bit to me?

1)   did you try to turn the steering left and right ? sometimes that will help - dan d

2)   Block the wheels or at least set the emergency brake.Then crawl under it and move the shifter linkage on the side of the transmission fully into park.It sounds like you may need a new shifter cable or the cable has popped out of the bracket. - Mike M

3)   Not being fully in park wont keep the key from turning. You either have:
The steering wheel lock binding lie the other poster said.
You have a broken of damaged ignition lock cylinder or linkage.
A bad ignition switch (this is mounted on the lower part of the steering column, under the dash)
Or, the wrong key
C'mon guys, think about this. being in gear wont keep your key from turning to the run position. If it did, you couldn't shut off your car in gear. - James F

4)   This really sounds like you have an ignition switch problem on your Town & County mini van.

There is some information on the website about this issue and it seems to be common because they sell the ignition switches - Bob R

5)   1.) Get a hammer or rubber mallet and a pair of pliers 2.) Gently but firmly tap the head of the key as if you were trying to push the key into the lock. 3.) Turn the key while tapping the head of the key back to the lock position. 4.) This should free up the stuck pin in the lock cylinder. - C-Tech

Question 3
chrysler town and country 2001 starter location?...  

1)   Every American car out there since the Ford Model A has had the starter in the same location. Lower rear left side as you're looking at the engine from the front. - mustanger

2)   What the other guy said^ but I'm curious as to what you plan on doing with this information, gonna fix that yourself, that ought to be interesting. can I watch - Buster

3)   The T&C has a transverse mounted engine (being Front Wheel Drive)

The starter is located in the front of the van, between the radiator and the engine block. It is about the center of the van, and is bolted to the transmission.

It can be easily accessed from under the van. - fire4511

Question 4
about my 1998 plymonth voyager fuel gauge?...  well when i put gas in the tank it will read normal but when i start down the rd it will gradually go down to the e & but when i kill it & start back up it will go back to where it should be at & i need some help anyone please help me asap please!!
i already put a new fuel pump & filter on it last yr costed me 220.00 for the whole fuel pump & filter

1)   You'll need a new fuel level sending unit at least. i recommend the whole pump and fuel filter be replaced. If it was not a factory fuel pump, you'll need another one. The aftermarket pumps are not as good as the factory pumps. - C-Tech

2)   It's quite possible that if the float and it's wiring and connections are okay that the fuel gauge itself is faulty.Most of the big U pull auto wrecking yards should have that gauge cluster assembly that you can pull out yourself and if you've the right tools you could take it apart and just get the fuel gauge from it or buy the whole cluster assembly from them.

Hope that helps and best of luck.By the way it's a common problem to have a faulty gauge or cluster assembly but it's just as common to have a bad float or bad connection going to the float.One thing you can watch for is seeing how the gauge acts going up and down hills and if it changes or varies a lot it probably is the float. - helpful bob

3)   Your problem isn't the sending unit, fuel pump, or wiring. You have a burned out gauge. It's shorting out and getting hot, which makes it read empty. Just like grounding the sending unit wire makes it read empty. - James F

Question 5
2007 chrysler sebring. burning gas like crazy?...  i just bought a 2007 chrylser sebring and its burning gas more than it should. i should be getting 25 mpg but im only getting about 20 mpg. i got it checked out and was told everything looked fine and i bought a good car. does anyone know what it could be??

1)   Possibly a leaky injector? Maybe a bad fuel pressure regulator? Get a new air filter and maybe new spark plugs, check that your tires are inflated properly.

The first thing I do when I buy a new car is replace all of the fluids and tear it apart a little bit, go get that beast tuned! - F1lthy

2)   Probably a bad o2 sensor. Or if this is a v6 then this would be the mileage you're going to get. - Hank Scorpio

3)   dont asume the worst go to walmart for 20 and get a fuel injector cleaning and change all your fluids (no relation but needed) and check your tire pressure. change your air cleaner and give it a tune up and i bet it will all come back maitenance is needed and most often neglected especially in a car for sale. - kathyannfarnsworth
