Hi Rachel, Im AL the owner of Big As Auto Repair

Rachel, I'd feel better about helping you if we had a trouble code to start with. If you know someone that has a hand held scanner that will check the codes and post the code here or on my website below I will be able to help you with more confidence we are headed in the direction to repair your vehicle.

I will tell you that the Cam Shaft Position Sensor and Crank Shaft Position Sensor is the most common problem I find with a no start on this vehicle. BUT, it could also be fuel relayed so I'd feel much better if I had a code to go by.

When you get a code send it to my website below and I help you further. http://www.bigasautorepair.com/

2005 PT Cruiser no crank


sounds like the crank position sensor. check continuity and 5volts reference at sensor. you can have it checked by someone with a Good scanner(SNAP-ON). If it happens to start up,drive the car till it wont start up again; unplug the crank position sensor and count to 5 then plug it back in. If it starts then its the crank sensor.(just a quick way to test it and get you home or to a shop)

2004 PT Cruiser Turbo won't pass smog test because computer monitors haven't completely reset after battery failure. It's been driven 235 miles and only 2 monitors remain unset (oxygen and


The system has to see a wide range of conditions before a smog test can be done. On most brands you have to drive at least 50 miles, at various speeds including stop and go, let it idle for 5 - 10 minutes, and run at freeway speed for at least 25 miles. It also has to reach normal operating temp of 195 degrees.

3002 Pt Cruiser GT - 53, 000 miles - first start of the day - went about 1/4 mile down hill, engine light came on. Had put gas in the day before thought maybe the gas cap was lose. Tightened gas cap, went...


It sounds like a sensor is intermittantly loosing the data stream. Since the engine light came on, I would go to a reputable shop and have them check for codes. Many auto parts stores will do this as well and sometimes for free. Can't beet free. If I were to guess I would say something like the camshaft postion sensor is going bad, Or the crankshaft postion sensor, Or something like that. The code will tell which one it is.

Good luck, and if you have any further questions please....ask!

Engine starves for fuel after running about 50 miles or so...


Has Neon do same, I ran fuel at low level, on hot day, ran engine until it started to act up & threw a fuel pressure gauge on it. Was at approx 5 psi. Cold next morning, 48-50 psi. Always hot day about 30-40 miles into work in morning, o.k. Sit in hot sun all day & would happen 3-4 times on way home. Sit and let cool, 20 minutes or so & go again for a while. Cool day, no problem. Change pump I would.
