    Dose it sound like the engine is turning over faster then normal? if so check to see if the timing belt jumped time. Also check the engine oil level and oil pressure is ok. This vehicle monitors these things and if it is out of time, oil, or low oil pressure it will turn over but won't start.

    Which is the fuel pump relay in the fuse panel ? I only have the owners manuel and it does not show that. And how do you check it ?

    Yes, its a clogged fuel filter, also the pt cruiser fuel pump is in the gas tank an if you drive with half a tabk of fuel or less it can cause it to fail. the pump is lubricated by the gas so its better to run with a full tank as much as possible.
