I have a 2007 Chrysler PT Crusier and the check engine light came on and my car died., but the engine wants to turn over. I don't know much about cars. I just bought this car two days ago.
It could be the cam sensor. Get the car scanned. You can pick a scan tool up very cheap these days. (The P/T doesn't have to be running to check the engine codes) Then let us know the codes and we can go from there.
autozone, or many other autoparts stores will scan your car for codes free.
