What PT do you have (turbo/non-turbo)? What mileage? What have you done to solve the problem yourself? Has any work been done to the car that might have something to do with your problem? Is the engine light on to say that the computer recognizes a fault? Have you kept up with routine maintenance? Did the problem just start and coming to the forum is the first thing you've done?

I would check your vacuum hoses sounds like you may have a big vacuum leak and the car won't idle. Have someone give it enough gas to keep the engine running and listen for a hissing sound. If you can get it to idle spray the vacuum hoses with carb cleaner and see if there is a change in idle speed.
