Question 01 PT Cruiser wont start need heeeeeeelp!!!

I have a 2001 P T Cruiser 5 speed. I need some help!!

The car wont start!

I was at a stop sign and went to take off. The car shut off on me. I thought I had let the clutch go too early so I turned it on put it back in first and went to take off again and it shut off again. This happened about 4 times until it wouldnt start at all. This all happened right in front of a mechanic shop so they came over looked at it hooked up a few testers and said it was a bad crank sensor. My husband knowing some mechanic had the car towed home and said he would fix it himself. He replaced the the crank sensor twice and the cam shaft sensor and the car still wont start. We found a video on youtube on how to check the codes on the dashboard. So we did that and its coming up with a code of P0320 which I have looked up and found it comes up crank position sensor which was changed already twice. Has this happened to anyone and has gotten the car fixed ?

Check the wires for chafing. Pull the cam sensor out and turn the key. If the cam turns the belt is OK.

Busted talking about the timing belt. If your anywhere near 100,000 miles and the belt hasn't been changed, it's a good chance it broke and that what your problem maybe. The wires he's talking about are from the camshaft sensor.

It's on the right side as you stand looking at the engine. Fast check is to take off the sensor, look inside as someone tries to turn over the engine. If nothing moves, the timing belt has broken.

Another good piece of advice....You may have used after-market parts,and Mopar electrical parts seem to function alot better than even OEM parts right out of the box.
