Common symptoms of a bad starter is fine starting when it's cold, hard starting when it's a little warm, and no starting when it's hot. The hotter the starter gets, the more power needed for it to crank. If you are experiencing these symptoms, the starter is bad.

    I don't understand the negative feedback. Based on the limited description of your problem, I diagnosed the possible cause which would appear to be a bad starter. If these symptoms are not present, you could provide more detail. I'm sorry if you found the solution not to your liking but it was most certainly highly appropriate according to your question.

Ive got a towed in right rear wheel on a 04 pt cruiser rear quarto wreck where more than likley should i start looking to get this wheel straight axle spindle watts link or complete rear end change

Unibody should be checked @ a body shop that has measuring system to check length, width, height. If thats good replace rear suspension then get vehicle aligned. It will be safe and won't wear out your tires prematurely.

2006 pt cruiser lost power while driving an now no start just loud clicking noise

From your brief description, It sounds like you lost your ground connection. Check the Negative (black) terminal connector on the battery, and check where the cable connects to the chassis.
Even if I misunderstand your description, that should be a good place to start!

My 2001 Chrysler PT Cruiser won't turn over, what's wrong with it?

Lets start at the beginning.
When you were driving the car and everything shut down, it sounded like you lost power to the main fuse box which could have been a faulty battery cable or connection somewhere.
I assume the car did not overheat when it stopped running for you.
Now the ignition control is part of the ECM or PCM which is the computer that controls the engine and other components. The average price of a computer from a parts store is $250.
The computer is usually under the battery in the engine compartment.
I would get a second opinion before you do anything else.
