    I found out the fan needed to be replaced and hard wire the connections to the fan and this problem no longer exists fixed I would try first to hard wire the fan.

It can be issue with faulty motor or its faulty fan control relay.


Both are to be inspected.

Test volt at fan relay and fan motor.

SOURCE: Overheating in 01 pt cruiser

Hi mate i am in Australia and i am a truck mechanic and own a 2003 pt cruiser and have been experiencing the same over heating problems , the problems is that the low or high speed fan s ar not coming on when they are supposed to i asked all of the chrysler dealerships in my state if they have ever experienced the problem and the answer was no and were no'e intereted in helping unless i took it to them and they would experiment with it till they found the fault haha, well my wallet is still full and i have found the fault and this could be the fault of many pt's that are over heating as the fan' s not working when they should. OK this is what i have found and have never looked back and had no more probelems , the fault i found is the three pin female plug on the harness the connects to the fan had a broken contact inthe sealed plug so i cut the plug off of the harness and fan and just used universal utilux bullet style connectors and that fix my overheating problem for ever, cheers Mark from downunder

SOURCE: Change the thermostat on 2002 Chrysler PT Cruiser

Hi, i have put together a step by step guide that will help you with this replacement job. Make sure the vehicle is in a cool state before starting this job.


* Drain some coolant into a clean container until the coolant level is below the thermostat housing.
* Remove the upper radiator hose connection from the thermostat housing.
* Loosen the housing bolts and remove the housing.
* Remove the gasket and scrape it carefully from the surface of the housing and the mounting surface on the engine. If the gasket remains on either of the surfaces, there will probably bea coolant leak after reassembly. Some engines use a rubber O-ring to seal a thermostat housing.
* Compare the size of the thermostat to the old one. They are of different sizes, types, and temperature ratings.
* The temperature rating is stamped on the sensing bulb on the bottom of the thermostat. The temperature bulb faces the block.
* When replacing a thermostat, be sure that the thermostat fits into the groove in the block or outlet housing. If the thermostat is installed upside down, the engine will overheat.
* Install the gasket.
* Reinstall the thermostat housing. Refill the system and run the engine or pressure test to check for leaks.
* When the engine has reached operating temperature make sure the thermostat opens.
* You should be able to see coolant circulating within the radiator.
* Another way of checking thermostat operation is to feel the top of the radiator hose or use a thermometer or multimeter with a temperature probe to confirm that the coolant is warming up.
* If the engine is overheating, but the top hose is still cool to the touch, the thermostat is stuck closed and must be replaced.

NOTE
When a paper gasket is used and the recess is in the thermostat housing, it is a good practice to position the thermostat into the recess and glue the gasket to hold it in place. If it falls out of its groove during installation, the outlet housing can be cracked or a coolant leak will result. Before tightening the water outlet housing, try to rock it back and forth to be sure it is flush. Housings are often cracked during this step.

Check your oil dipstick for coolant, or a mucky substance. Your symptoms sound like a blown head gasket.

What could be the overheating problem on a 2007 pt cruiser? Fan still works. could it be just a relay or perhaps the pcm?


you say the fan works but does it turn on when it should if so then it could be a thermostat, head gasket problem, bad engine coolant circulation. you don`t say if the tech checked the fan itself or the fan circuit which would include the PCM, rad relay, coolant temp sensor for the PCM to turn on the fan. the fan relay is in the relay box under the hood.

I have a 2001 Pt Cruiser. The coolant fan dosen't work when the sensor is connected. Does this mean I need a new sensor


Maybe.
A mechanic would watch the sensor with a scanner to see if it shows the correct engine temp. The computer takes the data and grounds the fan relay when the engine reaches 220 degrees.
Are you sure the coolant level is full ?

I have a 2001 chrysler pt cruiser it is overheating, i had the raditor replaced new thermostat new sensor on the fan and the fan checked. what else could be causing the problem please help me solve the...


Faulty water pump is the next thing I'd check.
Also backflush the cooling system if you haven't already.
Check to see if you have coolant in the oil. You may have a bad head gasket.

2002 pt cruiser overheating was told i need a new raditor and thermostat for 1 grand sounds fishy


Flush rad & change coolant & thermostat. Check operation of rad fan, & make sure it is coming on when engine reaches normal operating temperature. Be sure to bleed air out good when refilling rad/cooling system. Start engine & turn heater on when refilling & let rad fan come on & off at least 2 or 3 times before putting cap back on rad, and refill rad as needed as you do this. then fill return bottle to proper level & see what happens.
