Pt cruiser starts chugging when you push on the gas pedal

Check engine light is on, when you accelerate the car starts to hesitate. You have to let off the gas pedal then push slowly to continue to accelerate. Push too fast and it starts to hesitate again. Side note; once the engine is warmed up it doesn't do it as much.

SOURCE: Car hesitation

sounds like the coil pack is failing or you could just have water in your fuel.... buy a couple bottles of gas line antifreeze (it sucks up water) and add them to your tank when you fill up.... if that doesn't fix it it is likely the coil pack

SOURCE: my check engine light comes on and my car will not

This sounds like a problem with the throttle position sensor. Take the car to an autoparts store and have them scan the computer for fault codes stored. Most parts stores will do the scan for free. Getting the codes will narrow down the cause of the problem and should eliminate the need for speculation. Sorry for your trouble and I hope this helped. Best wishes.

Why check engine light comes on then starts to chug if speed reach 60 or accelerated


Have the problem code scanned for proper fix. You can go to advanced auto, Auto zone, ETC, they will scan vehicle as long as the light is on. For free! and tell you the problem code. It could be a cam or crank sensor that is going bad. Good-Day!

2006 pt crusier the check engine light comes on then the car bucs and hesitate when accelerating


THe engine light is an indicator that the computer has found sensor/s out of parameters during it's continuous system checking. It is telling you to have the codes read and replace the faulty unit. By what you say the failing sensor is causing your problem

Pt cruiser jerks when acclerating, hesitates when not accelerating, fine when idle


I am not saying this is the solution or this is the problem but the PT cruiser suffer from code P0344 Which is the cam position sensor which causes misfire, the solution is a reflash of the ECM.But before a reflash the Camshaft postion sensor needs to be verified for working condition and if possible duplicated.Once the Check Engine light does come on you automatically go to limp home mode, This is the drag that you experience,the purpose is to protect the catalytic,in case there was a true condition with intermittent cam postion sensor,You need the check engine light code, then you can go from there.

I need to reset service light


You should be able to reset the service light by turning the key to the "run" position (do not start vehicle) and then immediately push down on the gas pedal to the floor 3 consecutive times and then start the vehicle... this should reset the service reminder light. when you push the gas pedal 3 times it must be done consecutively within about 15 - 20 seconds. Hope this helps...

instead of cacelling the engine light , next time take it in and have the fault codes read

NO POWER WHEN PUSHING GAS PEDAL


Only way to know whats going on is to retrieve the trouble code for the check engine light by using a OBD II diagnostic's tool, it's likely the poor hesitation in the vehicle's acceleration is causing the check engine light to appear, the OBD II diagnostic tool plugs into a data link connector under the driver's side dash, you can buy one at most auto parts store's, or if you don't want to buy one some auto parts store's will do a autoscan of your vehicle at no cost.
