Exclamation NEED HELP 2006 PT CRUISER CRANKS BUT WON'T START!

2 Days from today, in the morning I was getting ready to leave from my house. I was backing up my parking lot and when I stopped to get ready to change from reverse to drive my car shut off on me. The check engine light was on before it shut off. I'm not good with cars so I don't know what the problem might be. Please help :/

well it COULD be a lot of things
First thing is the timing belt if it has not been done the milles are right there
after that lots of guesses you need to get a code reader and check it out or have some one check the timing belt--if it is the timing belt you need to find some one who is knowledgable on the PT cruser and it will be a Big expense ( between $750-$1200) change the water pump and tensioners when you do the timing belt

Could very well be.
One thing to try - get some "starting fluid" and spray in intake and try to start the car - if the engine "coughs", timing belt is okay, and you have some spark.
