Question about 2001 Chrysler PT Cruiser
Have you tried holding the gas pedal down a little to see if it starts that way,if it starts then your throttle body/ IAC is dirty,if that didnt work, check for fuel pressure if you dont have a pressure guage you can un-clip the fuel line at the eng have a small plastic jug to catch the gas and have someone just turn the key to run ( not cranking it over) and see if a shot of fuel comes out of the fuel line,then have them crank it over and see how much gas comes out-if nothing or very little then you may have a plugged fuel filter or bad pump,or a bad fuel pump relay-if gas comes out,then it could be cam sensor or a crank sensor problem,assuming every thing else is good-you didnt say if the coil pack was new or used,or if you checked for spark,but a scan tool would give you a code for either the cam or the crank sensor or any other relavent code.A bad PCM will also stop the spark and the fuel,I hope this is helpfull

If the engine has to be turned over a number of times before starting it may be fuel pump related, more overly the check-valve within the fuel pump. If this has failed (or leaks back) the fuel system will need to come to pressure before the engine will start. I'd check your fuel line pressure when running you should see @ 40PSI or so; once shut down the system should hold pressure; if it drops off to zero then you know where the issues lyes.
I hope this may have helped.

There is only one reason you would not find a coil pack on your cirrus is if it is a v6, which is built into the distributor. (VERY common problem is the distributor on those cars, well that and crankshaft sensors) Because on the 4cylinder it is on the top of the engine. The distributor is just to the left (towards passenger side) of the brake master cylinder/booster. Not a fun job but can be done without removing a lot. Hope this helps.

Spark Plugs never fail to fire,it would be a, once in a lifetime, if you find one.
You never change any part, without knowing what it does,and how to test it
So will it could be anything in the ignition system, I suggest you save your money on parts,and just have it repaired.
No one without the vehicle can guess at the issues your having.
If you perform a specific test and need help to evaluate the results,then get back here

Sounds like your distributor is bad, but first check your distributor and rotor to see if that's the problem, if not then i would say its the distributor.
