Is your engine light on? If so what diagnostic trouble codes are you getting?

How are you checking it for codes? OBDII Scan Tool or key dance?

I would suggest you check the wiring, connector going to the crankshaft sensor and the crankshaft sensor itself.

On the 2001 &2002 Pt Cruiser there is a common problem where the wire harness drops down from the bottom of the engine to the half shaft rubbing on it burning through the harness and shorting out wires including the crankshaft wires. Check the wire harness.

This link below might help you check the crankshaft sensor. It is specific for a 2001 Pt Cruiser.
