Default No Start

Hope someone in here can solve this. 03 Turbo just got home from weekend trip with no problems. Wife headed to work Monday morning car starts right up...she has a low front tire and drives up to garage door leaves the car running and airs up tire. She gets back in RUNNING car backs up about 10 feet and the car dies. No hesitation, shutter, just as if she turned the car off. Now nothing...car cranks, has fire to plugs, timing is dead on, compression ok.
Had a code 113, intake temp sensor. Replace with new plugs and still nothing. I have sprayed either into the intake just to see if that would make the little monster hit but nothing. I took the car to a mechanic and he called...same thing, nothing is wrong but it won't start. Just can't figure where to go from here. Thanks in advance for any help, prayers, thoughts.

Are you currently getting any engine trouble codes?
Do you have an OBDII Scan Tool?
Any time you replace a component in the PT Cruiser and it still does not run you need to find out what the engine trouble codes are.
How many miles do you have on the PT Cruiser?
How did you check to see if you have spark on all four spark plugs?
Do you hear the fuel pump running when you turn the ignition key on?
What did you spray into the throttle body when you were trying to get it to run?
Did you check your air filter to make sure its not restricting the air from coming in?

No trouble codes that I know of...I bought a Blue Point Scanner from my Snap-on guy..not sure if it's OBDII. Tocheck Fire..I have just pulled the plugs one at a time, gounded them and cranked the engine. Yes I can hear the fuel pump hum when I turn the key on. I sprayed either (starting fluid) into the intake. No problems with intake or filter

I always check the engine trouble codes after replacing any parts. I would suggest checking it again.
If you have spark, fuel and air you might need to find out if your timing is off.
Have you checked the compression in the cylinders?

Timing belt has been recently replaced...Timing is dead on...yes we have checked the compression on all cylinders. I have plugged my scanner in after replacing the Intake sensor and there are now "no DTC's or freeze frame data currently stored in memory" Will the trouble codes come up while trying to start the engine????

Yes. Often the connector, the wiring, or the sensor itself go bad.
If you determine it is the sensor, spend a few $ more and get a Mopar sensor, not an aftermarket brand.

Usually if the camshaft sensor is bad you would get an engine trouble code P0340.

Have you tried starting it and then check to see if the engine light comes back on?

I would suggest that if you are getting spark, fuel , air and your timing is good to look at the TSB 18-026-03 involving the PCM.
