Question about 2003 Chrysler PT Cruiser
The engine will turnover and it will just keep cranking, but it won't start when it is facing uphill or on a flat surface. Only starts when I am facing downhill or when I prop up the back end. About 3 weeks ago the check engine light came on and the readout said it was the crank shaft position sensor which I replaced. It seemed to start fine for a week or so then it when back to the same as before only starting when the back end was lifted just a couple of inches up...
Sounds like a fuel pump fault, gravity is the only thing feeding the engine, then when engine is running the suction is sucking fuel in.

TESTING OF CRANK SENSOR
Normal resistance is 200ohms, +/- 75ohms.
275ohms to 125ohms...any higher or lower and it is recommended for replacement.

When you turn the key on the ASD relay should turn on the fuel pump and power the injector, Do this lets cheat the system go to the ASD rely open the cover expose the inside have some one turn the key on does the ASD make contact? If not turn the key on collpase the ASD so it make contact do you hear the fuel pump come on? Now try this just as how you iopen the ASD do the same to the starter relay. Put the car in gear e brake on someone in the vehicle in case the car start and you are in front of it and it runs you over so at least they step on the brakes. Key on ASD exposed as your collapse the starter relay does the ASD relay turn on? Here why if you can control all the relay from under the hood you will need a ignition switch (the eletrical part)

Have you ever replaced the timing belt?? If not the problem is likely to be a loose worn out timing belt. A floppy belt will play havoc with the sensor signals and trigger a check engine light and a camshaft sensor code.
