Welcome to the Pit area information page.
Our content within the Pit area is available by subscription only. The information below provides a summary of the content and services currently available to subscribers. Pit Pass subscriptions are available at $17.50 annually, which provides for unlimited access/visits by the subscription holder.
The majority of our content reflects the domestic (US) 2001-2005 model year PT/GT Cruiser with 2.4L gas engine. Beginning in 2006 Chrysler introduced a number of design changes to the PT line. While many components and procedures are identical to earlier model year PT's, there have been changes in body design, features and circuitry. Information on the 2006 model year PT is available to some degree on the site or by request (we have service manuals). Basic maintenance procedures for later model years (2008-2010) are in most cases identical to earlier model years.
OE Body, Chassis, Powertrain and Transaxle diagnostics are available to Pit Pass subscribers.
OE Illustrated Part Breakdown (IBP) catalogs for model years 2001-2008 are available to Pit Pass subscribers.
Our service manuals include some information on exports which utilize the 1.6L or 2.0L gas engines. Many procedures which apply to the 2.4L gas engine also apply to the export (gas) models.
