I googled, (you can too) see this:
Other people seem to have similar problems.
there may be a "hidden" recall
Sounds like it could be a dangerous situation. I'd get it fixed before someone gets hurt, or contributes to an accident. Cheap health insurance!

I have a 2002 Chrysler PT Cruiser and it cuts off at speeds over 55mph seemingly at random. It often cuts off while making right turns at slow speeds, also at random. I have > 220k miles. Can you help...

This is a tough one, i would start by going to an auto parts store and for free they will scan the computer for any codes,these codes which are stored when the computer picks up a problem would help. then i would start the car and start to move wiring around and wiggling it, to tryto find a short, if the cars engine stalls while moving wires then you will be able to pin point by the wire you move. beside this if its a sensor or module thats going to be hard to find.if the car starts right up after it stalls then i would have to say its a relay or a bad wire some where in engine compartment. good day.

Randomly looses power, checked hoses, didn't appear to be any loose. Was told to put premiun gas in, and an engine cleaner that you put in the gas tank.....seems a little better.....but still 'cuts out'

check the turbo wastegate, if it overboosts the ecu reduces or cuts fuel not to do any damage in the engine. I read this and after a while i saw your problem and thought that this was the problem.

We are getting random miss fires to the point where it is not drivable. Other times it runs great. We have replaced the plugs and plug wires. We have also cleaned the fuel pump a couple of times. It...

When the engine acts up,have the fuel pump pressure checked to make sure the pressure is good,it sounds like the fuel pump needs to be replaced.

Hey I have a 1999 Chevy Silverado 1500. Last year in the spring, it randomly cut off. After a short time of looking around we realized the coil wire was exposed and shorting out on a line from the AC. Now...

Yeah I would pull that harness apart remove the tape and the plastic conduit around it and really give the wires a good inspection to rule them out then your going to want to make sureto pit the plastic conduit back on there raping it if you want. And remember to check up the wires a good foot or so in both directions. Then make sure the rubber on that pipe can withstand temperature because it soulds like it's getting a little warm.

Start up

U have 2 seperate problems, the gas gauge issue is caused by a defective sending unit in the gas tank, the cutting out will require u take the car in and have the electronic engine control system tested for trouble codes. Does this car have the 5.7 L engine?
