Need Diagram of linkage for 2002 PT Cruiser under the hood

There is no "linkage" under the hood. It is a hydraulic clutch, and the only linkage is form the pedal to the clutch master cylinder, which is bolted directly to the firewall. So all the physical "linkage" is inside the passenger compartment.

Here is a picture of the master cylinder:
You can see the bolts that come thru the firewall..

If you are having issues with the clutch, I recommend replacement like the dealer recommends: the complete sealed system. You can get it at Autozone via special order. It comes completely assembled, including Master and Slave cylinders and reservoir. Here is a picture of that:

I replaced my slave cylinder on my 2006 pt cruiser and had a lot of air in the system but now its like when I put it in gear and step on the gas I dont move either something isnis something not engagi

When you replace a slave or master cylinder you have to do a bleed of the master cylinder. It is called a bench bleed. I am sure there is a lot of air in the system.

I have a 2002 PT cruiser. When I tried the air conditioner it doesn't get cold. I tried to add refrigerent and it didn't work. What different things could it be?

Well, it could be a lot of things. Bad compressor, bad clutch on the compressor, overcharged system causing the Safety to activate, a leak in the system, a bad coil or dryer or something as simple as a blown fuse for the compressor. Put your system in full defroster and set the temp select to max cold. if the compressor kicks in and you get cold air at that front window then the problem could be the control itself. If the compressor doesn't activate then it is most likely the compressor. or an overcharged system.

Peressure bleed a cluch pt 2003

Try a manual bleed first, as it may achieve the same result without the hassle of pressure bleeding.
Fill the master cylinder resevoir, keep it topped up while cracking open the slave delivery line- wait for a steady dribble of fluid to come through - a couple of gentle pumps of the master cylinder will help the process.
Then move to the slave cylinder bleed nipple - crack it open and repeat the process above.
Once you get a bit of pedal pressure back, it's fairly straightforward to complete the bleed process.

When my 2006 pt cruiser gets hot it is hard to shift gears. When it is hot you barely let the clutch out and it starts to move, whereas when the engine is cold the clutch engages when clutch pedel is...

cant honestly say that in 40yrs of motor fitting i have come across this before ,but need some more info on this to be able to assist,is your model a clutch cable or hydraulic ,if its a cable then remove clutch and possibly renew ,if its hydraulic then it could be a problem with air in the hydraulics which i doubt but if its in the end of the slave cylinder then it might be a job to remove in extreme cases and it will expand on heating up but i cant for the life of me work out why this would cause a problem because in actual fact an expansion would cause it be the other way around .No iam sitting here thinking about this and again its not the same as having the vehicle in front of me but i do think that i would be inclined to remove the clutch and have a look because the diaphram spring in the clutch cover could be playing up or the clutch disk plate could be sticking to the spigot shaft when hot .Also check the crankshaft thrust ,by looking at the front pulley and getting someone to put foot on clutch and see if front pulley moves away from the front cover with engine cold then after a drive when hot and clutch is low to floor .Also post back the results please because this is puzzling
