You need to replace your camshaft position sensor and crankshaft position sensor at the same time. The parts around $60 bucks together. The camshaft senors sets on the side of the engine and the crankshaft sensor sets in the rear of the engine above the oil filter. Also, check the wire harnes to both sensors they have a problem with shorting out. Make sure you tune your car up with new spk plugs, spk plug wires, and coil. The PT Cruiser is a good car ,but the sensors **** and need to be replaced often. With this car you must stay up on your maintenance. I have one with 150,000 miles and it runs like new. You can turn the key on/off, on/off,on/off, and it will give you the problem codes. Do this quikly and write them down for the mechanic. To reset your computer take off the negative battery post for about 15min and reconnect, continue to post any problems and solutions with this car. The problem code will appear in the odometer box...........runjoe

2001 pt cruiser starts ,runs for 15 mins shuts off wont start for maybe an hour then does same thing

Ignition control module (ICM) or also maybe the crank position sensor. If one of them went bad, it would mean you lose spark (ignition).

Unibody should be checked @ a body shop that has measuring system to check length, width, height. If thats good replace rear suspension then get vehicle aligned. It will be safe and won't wear out your tires prematurely.

Yes, the tumbler is worn, possibly from a heavy key chain or abnormally frequent stop/starts. Ther amy also be a bad connection in the switch connections itself, that may not require a whole new ignition switch.
