My 2002 PT cruiser broke down a week ago. It was driving fine and all of a sudden the check engine oil light came on and the car steering wheel began to lock up and shut down. I just had an oil change and other maintenance done to the car that same month. What could be wrong with my car? I need to know what part or parts are needed to fix the car. The car will not turn on. I can hear it trying to turn when I turn the switch on, but it still will not crank.
The mechanic that gave me the run around had me going back and forth buying parts for the car that does not fix the car. First it was supposedly the crank sensor. That didn't work. Then it was supposedly the coil package. That didn't do the trick either. Then the last time I spoke to this guy he said he would go back and get the crank sensor again to put on the car. This means I will have a new crank sensor and the new coil package. This is what he thinks would get the car up and running again. He got half way started with getting the coil package. After that he bailed on me without warning and lied about coming back to fix the car. Now I have a car that has been broken down for two weeks with no other mechanic to come and finish the job.
