Unhappy Help! 2007 PT Cruiser Touring Edition Problems

I was searching the internet for what could b wrong with my vehicle. It has been at the mechanics for over a month. The mechanic replaced the transmission module sensor when that didn't work he suggested replacing the computer which we just did today. None of which has fixed my car. It all started back in July when the airbag light kept coming on when someone was sitting in the passenger seat. Then last month when I was driving the car on the highway, it seemed like it slammed into park. It wouldn't let me drive over 20 mph or it would do it. My father took it 2 autozone and it gave him the code for the transmission chip module(he couldn't remember the # only what they said the code meant) We live in a very rural area and we do not have any chrysler dealerships close to here. Please help!!

Sounds like your car probably ended up in the hands of the wrong mechanic......The whole engine could be rebuilt in less than a month by a good mechanic!;He's probably got your car on the 'back burner' while he works on his 'gravy jobs',and he's playing guessing games,throwing parts at your car,and using your wallet to fund his 'guesses'......Best advice;push,pull,or drag it to someone who is at least familiar with Chrysler vehicles,if you find one that knows about PT Cruisers that's just a bonus!

That's a lot of assumptions

I would agree. But that is accurate a guess as it gets. The fact is they don't have a clue so run before the price you into the ground.

Maybe it's both. So they should run regardless.

I based my assumption on the fact they went for the 2 highest cost items first,they still haven't corrected the original issue,and they've had the car for over a month......I base my 'rebuild' theory,on a previous service department experience,having seen a 1990 Mitsubishi Mighty-Max truck brought in with an empty engine compartment,and ALL parts scattered in the bed(owner attempt @ a rebuild!lol);It was completely rebuilt in 10 business days,and picked up by the customer(I should also add,with NO post assembly 'come-back').
