Default Rough acceleration?

'07 Pt Turbo with 71k got an oil change on Thursday at the Chrysler dealership (who also managed to crack my rear driver side tail light), check engine light came on Sat AM, chugged along for about 5 seconds, by Sat Afternoon wouldn't start. Took a gamble and changed the Cam shaft sensor and got it running. Took to Advanced and had the code read, and that was the only one firing. Since then I have noticed that at 50mph to around 60-65mph there is some shaking and once it hits that higher speed its fine, and also noticed this AM that while idling in traffic it seemed to shake a bit.

I didn't change out the crankshaft sensor (plan to do next pay check), would this attribute to the shaking, or am I looking at something else here? Just had an oil change less than a week ago, and they did a 16 point inspection and said all was fine. At a loss, since it only happens at that particular speed.

That was the only one firing? What did you mean by this?

I think he meant it was the only code showing.

I would suggest buying an OBDII Scan Tool. This way anytime you have a problem with your PT Cruiser you can find out what the engine trouble code is and post it. You will have plenty of support and suggestions to help solve whatever problems you might have.
