Exclamation 2001 PT Cruiser LE (No MIL)

2 months ago My 2001 Pt Cruiser LE (206000)Miles was fine. The next day, engine light is on for (p0172 Only-ho2 reading Rich) Its fine wen cold and after 5mins or going in to Close Loop of wraming up the car is sputtering and bucking Choking Going 1 mile an hour with seemingly zero power, then suddenly lurching forward and plane out and you will not be able to start it for about 7 to 10 mins or it will hard to start. take it to a Shop for 2 weeks And had a computer scan (Check: Timeing, Fuel Injetors,EVAC,Fuel Line,Battery,Wires) found nothing i put in (New: Fuel Pump, New EGR, New Purg Silonoid, HO2 Bank1s1 upstrem only and that turn off the MIL, New Plugs wires Coil pack, Cat.) And still Have the Problem i'm lost

Not too much left. Why not change the downstream 02 sensor by the CAT since you already did the other 02 sensor and you had the CAT replaced?

Just for curiosity, why did it take the shop 2 weeks to do a computer scan ? What could they possibly be doing for 2 weeks with you car?

I've seen lots of posts about Cam Position sensor - be sure to get a Mopar one. Not expensive and eay to replace.
'01-'02 have EGR - possible that is all gunked up.
