You can start by going to Advance Auto they will scan it for free and tell you what the code is and that will give you a good starting point but in my dealings with the PT they are hard on plugs and wires so a good old fashion tune up is probably all it needs. I hope this helps you.

Car dies while driving


There was a know problem on some PT cruisers for shutting down intermittently and some shutting down and unable to restart. There was a wiring harness on the rear side of the engine block. you have to access it from under the car. this harness can come loose and rub on the axle shaft running from the transmission to the Right front tire. The harness contains wires for the Crankshaft Position Sensor (CPS) if it has been rubbing it can wear through the wire insulation grounding the circuit or cutting the circuit completely. That would be the first place I would look.

Bad miss


take a regular screwdriver and tap the mass airflow sensor with its handle and see if the engine reacts. if it does, the sensor is bad.
if there is no reaction, unplug the sensor and see if the roughness improves; if it does, the sensor is bad.
if neither of these things make a difference, then you have to see if any injectors are leaking (into the engine)

Check engine light comes on and it loses power like it's gonna cut off.. I have changed the fuel pressure regulator. It's almost like it's flooding. I can pull over turn it off... wait about 20 sec turn it...


check the wireing harness for the insulation falling off the wires and shoting. also coolant temp sensor could be bad or the insulation has fell off the wires to it

POSSIBLE VACUM LEAK I THINK


dave you ran it with a bad 02 sensor so most likely the EGR valve is plugged pull it off and clean it and it should help withte problem.

Vehicle shaking like it is missing real bad


when was the last tune up done and fuel filter was changed?
there is no spark plug wires I had to replace the boot for the number one cylinder on a 2000 expedition that was also having the same problem if the check engine light is on take it to auto zone and they will put it on a tester free of charge and I hope and pray that it is not the problem like the one I am working on right now I am replacing the upper and lower intake gaskets
