The 2001 & 2002 PT Cruisers have a common problem of a clip breaking off holding the Camshaft and Crankshaft wire harness from falling on the half shaft under the PT Cruiser rubbing through the wires causing an open circuit or a short to ground. I would suggest checking the wiring from the camshaft and crankshaft sensor to the PCM.

That sounds like the ticket on this. Check this very throughly. If not obvious to start with.
