Default 2005 PT Cruiser engine light coming on

The engine light on my 2005 PT Cruiser is coming on after the car has been running for awhile. If I shut the car off and restart it the light goes off and stays off for almost a week and then comes on again. I've also experiences some hesitation in the engine when I try to pass another vehicle. Tried fuel injector cleaner...still doing it. Our mechanic hooked it up for diagnostics and found nothing wrong with it. We do have a tie rod that needs replacing and we need new tires, but he could find nothing else wrong with it. Frustrated right now...because I can't afford a new car. This one has to last me for quite awhile.
It only has 57,000 miles on it and we service it regularly. Hope someone out there has some thoughts as to what it might be.

Have you ever replaced plugs and wires? Also when the mechanic checked codes, was his scanner able to check trans codes? Just a outside possibility.
