I have a 2006 pt cruiser gt turbo. It the transmission keeps going into limp mode. After I clear the codes it works fine but if I hit the gas completely to get around someone it falls on it’s face and pops up a misfire code. Now with the being said i just did a full tune up new plugs wire and coil also new injectors. I have a feeling it’s tipm related because once the car has been driven for awhile and you come to a stop the car dies. Ac also doesn’t work which Iv been told is all signs of tipm failure. Is there anything else I can do before I just start replacing the expensive stuff. Alternator is good and charging good and had a new battery to. Please any help is appreciate

Time for a lot more diagnosis before throwing money at it. What codes are coming up?

what spark plugs did you use?

Check the condition of the ground points. A corroded ground will reduce the voltage passing through and cause a low voltage condition. One area of interest would be the ground points on the driver side fender. You will need to remove the air box to get a good look.

Of all the diagnostic codes presented, P0882 appears to have some commonality with all the others. Low system voltage and TCM low power input can cause a myriad of logic problems with electronic control modules and cause symptoms of other codes.

Go to this discussion link of diagnostic code P0882. Scroll to my post #3 (Mar 2021) and review the diagrams. You have a poor electrical connection that is resulting in low voltage input to the transmission control logic.
