May reasons for a car to shut down and leave no codes, try to record what happens just before shut down, did it surge, miss, sputter, i have diagosed some that took days to find the problem, the reason you are told that they can do nothing is because garages only want the quick fix, and without codes the could have to spend hours diagnosing, i know i worked in a diagnostic shop for years find a mechanic that will take the time to help you
good luck

The computer tells you what is wrong with emmison system issues the problem you are having is a mechanical or electrial system failure, my guell is it's the fuel pump or coil system. But the computer will record any malfunctions but won't report fuel pressure so I suggest you have the fuel pressure tested and coil tested. It may even be a loose wire on the starter or ingtion switch so take it back to the dealer and sk them to search thier data base to find other cars with that problem. I do know yours is not the first.

2008 pt cruiser - check engine light came on, within minutes it started to "power down" and and died. Won't start. What could cause this? BTW have changed spark plugs, camshaft sensore, cranks


My PT did that when my timing belt broke. It cost $500.00 to replace it. If it is broken, be ready to have some motor work done. I had to have to values replaced at a cost of $900.00. If your timing belt is not broken then check the alternator and battery. I was riding down the road and my PT shut all the way down and would not start. I had to leave it beside the road. It was my alternator. It gave me no warning.

How do you put on a timing belt for a 2002 pt


hi from uk could you please verify ? you intend to diy cambelt change ? also has belt been removed already ? or has belt failed/broken ? the belt change is not too difficult to change/renew and is advisable to renew belt and tensioner and the water pump too as it is driven by c/belt to eliminate having to strip down again in near future due to possible pump faiure/leaking ? belt replacement is approx120'000miles or 8 years service ? however if belt has failed ?? then as this engine is what is known as interferance this means there will be piston/s to valves contact resulting in possible valves damage/bent ? the renewal of c/belt etc should take approx 3 hrs if you are confident/tooled and would save $$$$

2001 PT Cruiser quit running driving down highway


Most likely a cam sensor or a crank sensor. The timing belt didn't break did it? They also have an issue with the timing belt tensioner going bad and jumping a tooth.

Power steering keeps breaking the hose and makes a whining noise


If you get some odd noise from steering when you are turning tight, the pump doesn't get enough oil.
At first check the steering oil level is a pit more than "high".

If it is not help, there is sometimes dust in oilfilter?
(undocument problem)
The streering oil filter is inside the steering reservoir (oil tank?).
I took the reservoir out and clean the filter and now it is ok.

Oil light keeps coming on and beeps


This is the pressure light, nothing to do with the oil needing to be being changed, you have low oil pressure being indicated, this will destroy the engine if the light is really indicating low oil pressure, have the oil pressure tested with a mechanical test guage at a shop, if the oil pressure is ok then replace the oil pressure light sending unit.
