Did they checked if the valves are alright on your cylinder head? i dont know if this model in particular has that design but a lot of cars that lose timing on the distribuition get their valves bent by the piston head when the timing is lost.
hope this helps?

My pt cruiser stalls whenever i slow down but moves perfectly on high speeds.This problem started after timing belt snapped and i changed it


My pt did the same thing. took it to another mechanic, and he told me they left the timing off. took it back and told them what the mechanic told me, and they set the timing straight. Now it runs great.

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.

Looking for engine diagram and maybe a step by step on how to replace a timing belt that broke on a 2001 pt cruiser 2.4L


Big problems. you will have bent valves. dont attempt unless you know what you are doing. the head will need to come off. Chrysler has an updated tensioner and cover, replace the water pump. Good Luck.

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.
