I've never had a problem with my PT A/C but it's a pretty standard system with high and low pressure cutout switches, a compressor with a clutch, a refill port on the low side and a radiator/evaporator/dryer etc. If you do internet searches on how a typical car's A/C system works, you'll know how to diagnose problems and then watch Youtube videos on how to fix specific parts on a PT Cruiser.

The PT service manual does have some information on diagnosing and troubleshooting but you really can't predict what will happen if there isn't anything wrong with your A/C system now.

I've watched vids on how to use a high side and low side gauge and how to read them but it's good for most any other car too. One of the biggest problems is people overfilling their system which causes it to cut off in warm weather because the high side pressure shuts off the compressor so don't "top off" the R134 unless you know for sure it's low on refrigerant.
