I think someone either told a tale or didn't replace tensioner when belt change. Even setting they last longer than this. clean all the grounds and be sure you have strong battery far as PCM is concerned.

Should I fix? What is the condition of the PT Cruiser? Some pictures would help.
Does everything work? A/C, Cruise Control, etc.

How many miles do these cars last? That depends on on well the PT Cruiser is maintained and repaired.
