Check the starter motor solenoid, if that is bad, better replacing the whole starter motor.

    turn it over and look in where you add the oil to see if the camshaft is turning

My 2001 pt cruiser will stop running and then a litle while loner it will start and go again but not for to long. Changed the serptine belt and that didnt help


A problem like that sounds like the ignition coil overheats/quits after time. So after it dies, check for spark on the plug wires as someone is cranking the engine. (pull wire off and hold end next to ground and see and hear a spark)

2008 pt cruiser - check engine light came on, within minutes it started to "power down" and and died. Won't start. What could cause this? BTW have changed spark plugs, camshaft sensore, cranks


My PT did that when my timing belt broke. It cost $500.00 to replace it. If it is broken, be ready to have some motor work done. I had to have to values replaced at a cost of $900.00. If your timing belt is not broken then check the alternator and battery. I was riding down the road and my PT shut all the way down and would not start. I had to leave it beside the road. It was my alternator. It gave me no warning.

I HAVE A 2002 PT CRUISER I WAS DRIVING DOWN THE ROAD HIT A SPEED BUMP MY CAR DIED NOW IT WONT START


CHECK YOUR BATTERY LEADS EITHER ON THE BATTERY OR THE EARTH WIRE TO ENGINE AND CHASSIS OR FEED WIRE TO STARTER MOTOR
unless you have a fuse or relay jumped out
but you must have been going fast for that.....

2001 PT Cruiser quit running driving down highway


Most likely a cam sensor or a crank sensor. The timing belt didn't break did it? They also have an issue with the timing belt tensioner going bad and jumping a tooth.

PT Cruiser 2003 died while driving, no spark from new coil


Hello, I hear that pt quit while driving and you heard a thump,and you replaced the battery and coil and still no fire. Well it sounds like you have timing belt that broke it will keep it from firing at the coil if broke. Remove oil fill have someone spin engine over and see if camshaft turns if not turning the belt is broken. Please rate this answer, Thank you.

2001 pt cruiser hear a thump noise


This is either caused by a wore out strut/shock in the rear of the car or a broken spring.

Car overheats then engine dies going down hill coasting. When try to start, starter spins as if no gas or fire to the plugs. Can this be a sensor flipped by too much heat or lack of coolant ? If so, how do you reset the sensor ?
