Check for applicable trouble codes. How long since a tune-up?

It senses when the engine pings and the computer will adjust the timing accordingly. It is located in the block.

SOURCE: code PO340

P0340 is a Crankshaft Position Sensor error. It determines firing order and is most likely the cause of your problem. It's mounted near the oil filter on the engine block. Below is a picture of how it appears in your car. Best of luck.

SOURCE: I have a 2008 pt cruiser. The engine light is on

My PT cruiser is a couple of years older, but I had the same problem. Drove fine, but start-up was erratic for several weeks. By the time  AAA arrived, it usually was working fine. But when it suddenly  started "struggling for power on the freeway and further along on the same trip, lurching (on a city avenue) I drove straight to my mechanic. It WAS the same sensor . . . and car has been driving perfectly ever since he changed it.

ALL warning lights on dash flash off and on - then go off for a few minutes then does it again. Car runs fine.


I have a 2008 pt cruiser sometimes the dashboard will flash off and and but not all the time

Engine light comes on, stays on, doesn't blink,


The last chime is most likely an audible reminder that the check engine light is on. It would be advisable to get the car scanned to see why the light is on. Even if the car seems to be running ok, your fuel economy or emissions could be worse than they should be.

Check engine light goes on for a few days and then resets itself


Sounds like a re-occuring temporary code....take it back to the dealer or Auto Zone and have the code scanned within your 6 start reset limit
