The engine computer monitors critical instruments required to allow your engine to run properly without risk of damage. If these sensors detect an issue the light is activated and the computer shuts off the engine or only lets it idle. A free diagnostic scan at many auto parts stores will tell you what it thinks is wrong. But you may have to get it towed.

What would cause a 2005 PT Cruiser to lurch intermittently?


This would be very good justification for you to buy a cheap OBDII scanner through Amazon or your local auto parts store. Next time it happens, plug the scanner in immediately and read the error code(s) out of the computer. Then you'll know what's happening. The failure is intermittent, whatever it is, so you need to catch it while the error code is still "live".

2005 PT Cruiser no crank


sounds like the crank position sensor. check continuity and 5volts reference at sensor. you can have it checked by someone with a Good scanner(SNAP-ON). If it happens to start up,drive the car till it wont start up again; unplug the crank position sensor and count to 5 then plug it back in. If it starts then its the crank sensor.(just a quick way to test it and get you home or to a shop)

the sensor heater circuits have to be diagnosed; you probably didn't need to replace them.

Car is jerking and the engine has come on but it has oil and transmission fluid in it


We had an issue with our 2005 PT Cruiser. The check engine light came on and had trouble starting. Once it did start it would buck and sputter. I did some research on the web and found similar problems. From what i found it is the cam shaft sensor. This happened yesterday. We are getting it checked today. I won't go as far as to tell you this is exactly what it is, but it is a good place to start. Hope this helps!

I have a 2008 pt cruiser. The engine light is on


My PT cruiser is a couple of years older, but I had the same problem. Drove fine, but start-up was erratic for several weeks. By the time  AAA arrived, it usually was working fine. But when it suddenly  started "struggling for power on the freeway and further along on the same trip, lurching (on a city avenue) I drove straight to my mechanic. It WAS the same sensor . . . and car has been driving perfectly ever since he changed it.
