Default Re: 2001 PT Cruiser won't start. No Spark

I went old school with the cat conv.,......it was pretty clogged up so it now has no internals.........could that be an issue?? I really didn't feel like paying what they wanted for a new converter and figured it would perform a little better opened up.

was i wrong to think this? Could this be causing the problem?

The converter was punched out before the manifold was replaced and was driven about 100 miles that way before i swapped out the manifold and it ran GREAT,......it was just noisy.

Keep in mind that we got this car non running w/ broken timing belt and it sat for almost 3 years in this condition before me got it,..........it has ALOT of miles however it was never abused and recieved regular maintnance from the dealer since new (apparently some half assed service),..........we really don't know much about it because my father in law (original owner) passed away and we don't have the service records.

I'm convinced that the issues are electrical since it ran great with the new timing belt,........and for all these electrical issues to just pop up after a simple exhaust manifold replacement seem a little suspicious to me.
