You could borrow/buy an OBD2 reader (Dongle that either connects to a smartphone with Bluetooth, WiFi or direct USB connection to a PC: not the simple digit readout handhelds). Handy to have anyway - they're not too expensive. While monitoring the live data stream; most apps/software that display the vehicle information will show you the VSS output (Vehicle Speed Sensor). If it drops the same time your physical speedo drops; I'd be thinking the actual vehicle's speed sensor itself as the starting point. Don't go throwing parts at it though: you can check the wiring to the connector (depending where it is, insulation cracked? sensor not sealed/seal fail allowing in dirt? Effects on cruise control?
Good Luck.

Replace your Fuel Filter and see if it does not Help. Even a Partially Clogged Fuel Filter will cause this Problem.

SOURCE: timinig mark for 2003 pt cruiser non turbo 2.4

Hi, if it's ignition timing your looking at, it'not adjustable, it's controlled by the ECU, If however it's the cam belt timing, there is a crnk timing mark on the bottom pulley and the cam shafts have markings on theouter rim of the pulleys,these have to line up facing each other in a straight line using the centre bolts as a datum, all 3 marks should be aligned to be correct

How do i change the turbo motor and put a non turbo motor in a 2003 pt cruiser


Changing out an entire engine is no easy feat. The biggest difference you'll have is with the exhaust system. The non turbo engine connects differently.

Location of crankshaft position sensor for 2003 pt cruiser


Had this problem. The crankshaft position sensor (on 2003 non-turbo) is located directly under the starter. The Haynes and Chilton books will tell you the complete opposite. They state that it is located near the alternator. WRONG. Oh, it is really a pain to get to FYI.
