Hi, I started my 2001 chrysler pt cruiser this morning, the engine started and the tachometer revved to 2000 to 3000 rpms. The brake pedal was also hard to press down to stop the car. I drove the car and...

Check for a vacuum leak. Rubber hoses which do not carry any liquids, but provide a vacuum feed for various purposes.
One such purpose is the brake power booster. A loss of vacuum 'pressure' will affect braking performance and also idle speeds of engine. These are affected more so when engine is relatively cool, improving some when warmed up.

Vacuum tubes/hoses are usually connected to the intake manifold or the mass air flow sensor. The round metal part between the air filter and the intake manifold is the mass air sensor.
Look for tubes which have come loose or worn open or just cracked and dry rotted. Sometimes you can cut the tip off and reseat the tube. Otherwise just replace it. Any auto parts store will have what you need.

Have you tried just disconnecting the battery for a half an hour or so? Your ECU probably just needs to forget what it has learned and relearn it.
