Code P0116 in your PT Cruiser indicates a problem in the coolant temperature sensor circuit that is causing the coolant temperature to be inaccurate.........2......Read more: How to Fix a P0116 PT Cruiser | eHow

Replace your MAP Sensor. MAP Sensors are the hardest to diagnose, because the computer thinks they are working just because they are sending a signal. The computer has no way to determine if the signal is correct or not, for some reason. Easiest and probably the cheapest fix of all. Requires a Torx 15 driver. $18 at Autozone with a LLT Warranty.

Quic; I'd start by wiggling and inspecting wires from the cam sensor to the computer. A bad cps or cps magnet might cause the code. Or a skipped tooth on the timing belt?

Don, I'm with the above. Even though the Cam/Crank sensors are new, check the electrical connections and the wiring harness for any signs of wear. Might have to get to a scanner for further diagnostics. First, try the old and true method of taking off the negative battery cable for 5 minutes to reset the computer. Step on the brake pedal while it's unhooked and put it all back together. Can't hurt.
