2004 pt cruiser, changed timing belt, head gasket, put back together, no spark. Any ideas

Engine cranking, check primary voltage to ignition coil, dark green wire with orange tracer. Use a test light. That is the same voltage circuit for fuel injectors. That voltage comes from asd relay. I'm not saying the relay is faulty. The computer has to see both the cam and crank sensors signals or it won't ground the relay.
Could be other issues? You did visually check for spark at the spark plugs?
Any applicable trouble codes?

How to change the head gasket on my pt cruiser I have pressure leaking into the cooling

You really don't want to know... You will have to remove the timing belt , intake manifold, exhaust manifold, injectors, electrical connector to the cam sensor, just get to the bolts to remove the head. If your around 100000 miles replace all timing components, thermostat and radiator cooling fan motor,

2001 pt cruiser temperature is hot, fan does not come on


Sounds like you have head gasket problems.

2 ways to test this out are,

1. Pressure test the cooling system up to 15 lb sq in, with a cooling system tester pump,
( Available at any good car parts store )
Remove your spark plugs, wait about 1 hr, then get someone to spin over the engine, and monitor for coolant blowing from the plug holes.
This will confirm cylinder head, or the gasket is leaking.

2. Cooling system carbon monoxide test.
( Tester available from any good car parts store.)
The engine is run to normal temp, the tester is filled with fluid, and put in the header tank opening, and the suction ball squeezed, causing the gases in the header tank to pass through the fluid.
If there are any exhaust gases (carbon monoxide) present the fluid changes color, once again
confirming cylinder head, or the gasket has failed.

The reason you sometimes can´t start are the coolant leaking into the cylinder, shorts out your plugs, and the increase in your coolant temperature is due to loss of coolant into the bores, and over pressurizing of the cooling system, and blowing your coolant out the overflow as you drive.

Hope this has been helpful to you.
