my pt cruiser cranks but doesnt start,ive chaged the battery,jumoed the battery.everythings good.why doesnt it start?
Check the timing belt.
thanks,thats what i thought.but ,what makes you think that pls.
Because that is what happens when the timing belt breaks. Been there several times with my own PT Cruiser.
thank,for the info,merry xmas and happy new year to you.
Why can't any body figure it out? First of all, it is a intermitant problem right!? Electrical most likely. So what would just " shut it down" like that? My guess would be either the factory "kill" circuit is faulty. Either due to vibration or location ( PCB is vulnerable to external conditions like heat or moisture, ect....) or the ignition switch itself ( of low quality and/or bad design ) because that's the point where power is routed to the nessisary systems like the starter or coils and sensers during closed loop operation. Because it is being described like as if some one just turned off the key, except the steering doesn't lock, like if you really did turn it.
