You could have a fuel injector or a intake leak.

Welcome to the forum.

What year model is your PT, how many miles are on it, and has the timing belt ever been changed? And if the timing belt has been changed, how long ago? Also, did you clear the codes before you tried it out this last time?

When others report these three codes together, it's often because the timing belt has slipped and jumped time. The other most common cause is damaged wiring.

If me, I'd first inspect really well for damaged wiring because that's easy. If your PT is a 2001/2002, it's common for the leads going to the crank sensor to rub the right CV shaft and get damaged.

If no joy and if the timing belt has not been changed in the last 100,000 miles or so, remove the top dust cover from over the timing sprockets on the right side of the engine. Then removed #1 cyl spark plug and turn the engine to get that piston all the way up on the compression stroke. Then check the timing marks on the sprockets. Chances are that one of them (likely the intake cam sprocket) is a tooth or more off.

It should be noted that while I am an ASE Certified Master Automotive Tech and an excellent lover, I primarily work as a Safety Engineer among other things and I haven't worked as a professional mechanic since I was young strapping lad with long sexy flowing hair before college. And even then, I mainly worked on big trucks and heavy equipment. Nowadays, I enjoy working on these funny looking little cars for fun and relaxation. And I help others when I can.

Handy_Cruiser, you can answer what year the Pt Cruiser is by reading the title of the thread. How about doing a full diagnosis before you start telling a member to think about replacing timing belt?

You be right, there Steve. No mind reading required. I could say that the little screen I was on at the time was cutting off the "05". But it's just as likely I'd been up since 4:00 am and my eyes were cutting off the "05". I'm going to blame the screen but I think we all know better.

Ultimately my sweetie still thinks I walk on water and my recommendations still stand. But I appreciate you keeping me straight.

@Handy, you think jumping time is common? I have not heard of many cars with belts jumping time. They usually either work or don't. I remember more issues with stretched/slack chains on older cars. With the belts once they are worn enough to slip a tooth, I think they are usually non-op.

I have heard of plenty of guys changing the belt and putting them together a tooth off. Happened to me the first time they changed the belt on a 2.2.

My first guess was wiring.
