Question about Chrysler Cars & Trucks
I have a 2002 pt cruiser while it was idling at the bank the oil light came on and the vehicle shut off and wouldn't start back so I gave it a oil change and also changed plugs an wires an just changed the crank sensor on it. Could it possibly be my oxygen sensors? Or no? Or could it possibly be something else I just might not be thinking of?
Hi Sammy, Take the vehicle and have a diagnostic scan carried out. That will pin point the problem and take away the reason for guess work. Regards John

My thought is to get a refund from the shop that tried to replace parts in order to secure your problem. The job of the shop is to diagnose the problem, not to replace items that may be the problem. Chrysler Master Techs are not trained to just replace parts, they fix the problem by diagnosing it properly.
You need to see a Chrysler dealership so they can attach a DRBIII and tell you exactly what is at stake.
I hope this helps you. I would be mad as heck.
I would not think the plugs and wires would be the problem because they would all have to fail at the same time to provide the symptom you experienced.

There should be an O2 sensor before and after the catalytic converter on your vehicle, so it will have 2 sensors. You'll need a 7/8" open end wrench or an O2 sensor socket to replace them.
