Cool What is AUTO ATX?

Please help out! My 02 Dream Cruiser is/has been at the mechanics since early January! First a water pump replacement, then it was acting funny.....lunging if you will on the freeway, got it to the mechanic and it died! Got a new PCM, cleared error codes, car still refuses to start. Mechanic says it's like the computer is sending the signals to the injectors but the injectors are not receiving it... my car is an automatic, what is the "Auto (ATX)" I saw in another post?

The PCM was replaced because upon computer scan it no longer held my car's vin number/mileage, no error codes would show up, the car just refuses to start.

All help will be relayed to the mechanic (it's my brother, and he is one of the best in town).

ATX is automatic transmission, that's all it means. As to your other problems, with a new PCM, if it's not properly programmed and doesn't contain your PT's VIN number, then it will never work. Sounds to me like it's not properly programmed.
