Question about Chrysler PT Cruiser
Hi Jess -
I had a PT Cruiser in my shop last week with almost the same symptoms. Ours had a faulty IAC (Idle Air Control). I bet that would be a good place to start. The IAC for your PT Cruiser is an SMP AC419. You should be able to find them at your local parts stores of course.
The other thing we see A LOT with these symptoms is the anti-theft system kicking in. If you have another key - try it and see what happens.
