One thing to check on PT Cruisers is the fron sub-frame and mounts. They are notorious for rusting out. This could explain your plethora of problems as the motor not sitting where it should and moving around will create all sorts of problems. Not to mention it is a safety issue.
I think newer PTs have a sub-frame made of higher quality steel. So, if this is the case make sure you get the newest model year you can.
