Question about 2003 Chrysler PT Cruiser
I drove my 2003 PT Cruiser out onto the street and it started to serge foreward then it acted like it did when the transmission went out like it was in neutral then died and it would start but would not stay running. my son came and changed the battery and had me start it while he listened by the gas tank and he said the fuel pump was not engaging then he took off the cap up front where he said that the gas would collect and there was only a tiny amt of gas so he thinks it is probably the fuel pump. the computer has a transmission control code and low voltage.
The fuel pump could be the problem but if not try the spark plugs and the electric coil..if they are wet then they could give you the same problem

The fuel pump may be bad but it may also may be a bad ecm(computer) if you dont hear the fuel pump engaging then its not running first id try a fuel pump relay to be on the safe side and not to be changing unessacery parts if you can get the vehicle to auto-zone or you know some one with a code reader this will give you a more accurate picture and an idea as to where to start.

Testimonial: "having the car towed to my son's I will let him know these thoughts on the possible fix. the code = low voltage = new battery & transmission relay"
