I have a 2002 PT and the motor chugs at idle. When you press on the accelerator it smooths out. What could it be.

That is a symptom of an intake air leak. You should be able to listen under the hood for a "hissing" sound of air getting sucked in at the leak spot. If you need to, you can spray a NON-FLAMMABLE spray around areas you suspect, since it is not flammable it should make the engine run worse or stall.
