My daughter has an 01 PT with 80k miles and she tells me it is hard to start in weather below 20 degrees. I am not sure what size engine is in it. But the starter cranks over just fine so it is not the battery or alternator.
I plan on putting new plugs in it but was also wondering what the extreme cold usually affects in this moter to not make it run.

My brother also purchased an 01 PT Cruiser LE last saturday, ran great for three days and once the temperature got below zero here it also won't start. It has now been sitting for three days, we replaced the battery and used heat, and like you said the engine cranks over just fine but just wont start, also the fuel light is on when there is about half a tank. Please let me know if you make any progress.
