Question Tranny or Electrical please Help.

So my 2001 PT Cruiser while I am accelerating my RPMs go way high and then they stay high and they don't go back down unless I turn the car off and then back on and then my tranny light will pop on but my training is good at least I think it is and it will also pop on my tranny light and the brake light will come on and the trac light will come on and stay on unless I turn the car off and then turn it back on and then other times when I start my car there's no tranny like nothing and it runs perfect and I'm sure it's not electrical it won't pass emissions because it won't register anything like it doesn't register bad it doesn't register good nothing registers that doesn't get red please help me I need my car

I would suggest taking the PT Cruiser to a transmission shop that offers to scan for transmission codes for free. After you do this post what the transmission codes are. Also check the area on top of the TCM. Sometimes critters get in there and start chewing on the wires going to the TCM.

TCM = Transmission Control Module

What area do you live in so some member living near you can suggest a good transmission place that gives free transmission trouble code scanning. You might have a friend or a co-worker that knows of a good transmission place that you can call and find out if they would check for transmission trouble codes for free.
