Default Check Engine comes on

2006 PT Cruiser GT Engine lite comes on and car will not turn over sometimes . When it does start it only has second gear and reverse . Turn car off..let sit for a few seconds...start back up everything ok most of the time. Put car on computer diagnostic and they cannot determine what the problem is but they want to replace the computer engine modular.

put your key in the ignition.

Then turn it from off to accessory and back to off 3x.

Where your odometer is it should give you a PXXXX code. Let us know what the code is and we may be able to help ya out :-)
