2006 Chrysler PT Cruiser - Dying randomly

The cruiser is dying when it has been running 15 min. or so. Randomly dying. Give it a rest for an hour, cranks back up but won’t crank when it first dies.

That’s a classic symptom of a crankshaft position sensor being effected by heat.

2. Intermittent Stalling

Another symptom commonly associated with a problematic crankshaft position sensor is intermittent stalling. If the crankshaft position sensor or its wiring have any issues, it can cause the crankshaft signal to be cut off while the engine is running, which can cause the engine to stall. This is usually a sign of a wiring problem. However, a bad crankshaft position sensor can also produce this symptom.
