Question about Chrysler PT Cruiser
(Day1)The engine on My 2002 Ltd Edition PT w/Auto transmission quit running without notice while driving on the freeway (60-65 mph), the car immediately gave a shutter and lurch and started running again. It did this a second time 10 seconds later. I turn off the radio and tried to listen to the engine. It sounded fine. I was close to home and amde it no more problems. I looked under the hood and did some looking around but found nothing out of the usual. (Day 2)Drove it for a short errand the next day (2 miles) with no problem. (Day 3) I drove it 12 miles each way to took no problem. (Day 4) The engine cut out again two blocks from my work (30-35mph). It only restarted when I shifted to nuetral and turned the key. It started fine and I made it the rest of the way. What could this be?..... Computer?... Bad tank of Gas?
A relay can cause so many problems.. There are several different types of relays, check fuse area, I bet u this will locate problem

Sounds like it might be either the fuel filter or the fuel pump, cause if you ran the tank down, you probably had sludge in the bottom of the tank that you sucked into the engine, you can try using a fuel system cleaner, you may have sucked sludge into the injectors running it, Zmax sells a fuel system cleaner, or there is one called RUN RIGHT, I would try putting some of that in letting it sit a few min then after it sat a few to soak in and break down the sludge, then start the car up, kick your idle up to around 1500 RPM do not go higher then that cause you will damage the engine, try that and see if that works for you, if not then I is probably the fuel pump or filter.
hope this helps.

Either it one heck of a coincidence or the trans is somehow associated with or to the water temp.. The only way I know of is the transmission oil cooling. Ck the trans fluid level and onsider having the trans service.Oil change and filter and confirm or ask about the relationship of cooland and trans, if there is any. Good Luc and please let me know what you find out. Thanks Ned
