I also have a 2007 PT cruiser convertible actually it's my daughters car for college . The car has been sitting in my drive way for about a month but today my son drove it and a similar problem arose the check engine light is on but no codes I checked by turning the key method and got the "done" message ! But the transmission seems to not be shifting and at 45mph it's turning 5000 rpm !! HELP !!

Ah, a fellow sufferer of the Cam Shaft dance, haha. Same thing happened to me, it would buck and jerk and if i let up on the gas(getting ready to pull over) it righted itself for a bit. I made it home from work, over 20 miles, like that. Hair-raising. Actually even stopped doing it and light went off, for a day or two then went back to it and we replaced- took 10 minutes. However, take it from my personal discovery, and listen to these guys when they say DO NOT use an aftermarket sensor. I did and now three months later i'm replacing mine AGAIN tomorrow. The aftermarkets apparently don't play nice with Chrysler...mine lasted 2 months and less than 4K and now i'm getting the p0344 which is Camshaft Sensor Intermitent- ie- trouble brewing. LOL

It sounds like it is going into 'Limp Mode',but I would expect some code/s showing up.

I have a 2007 convertible and my check engine will just randomly comes on then when i try to accelerate it jerks and sputters horribly but when i leave it sit for a while it runs like a champ even though the light stays on . Then the light will go out the next time i start it. It runs well when i drive it all over town then the light comes on and we try to accelerate then get the jerking again any ideas ?

Also tried to get the code but no. Not even the done sign either. My odometer is digital and on right side of the gauge panel the only display i get is the usual light s when you turn the key on and they are in the middle display where my speedometer is. Cant get any codes am afraid to drive on interstate light might come on and will probably crap out on me. Any suggestions ?

I would suggest getting an OBDII Scan Tool. You might be able to get a engine trouble code as you are driving the PT Cruiser with the scanner plugged in.

I am suggesting you might have an electronic, fuel or transmission problem. First thing I would check is your transmission oil level. Has the transmission been maintained regularly? I would also take the PT Cruiser to a transmission shop that will offer to check for Pxxx codes for transmission error code problems for free. You might have a transmission code stored on the PCM but the Scan tool does not recognize it.

If the transmission is okay I would suggest you check is the fuel pressure. You should be getting 57 +/-5 PSI.

If the fuel pressure is okay then check the throttle position sensor wiring and contacts. If they are good i would suggest you check the throttle position sensor itself.

If the TPS checks out okay I would check the camshaft wiring and contacts going to the camshaft sensor. If that is okay I would check the camshaft sensor itself.
