Read the under hood specs. this coolant can be purchased at the dealer. But, it is orange in color. Not your regular coolant and it is a little more exspensive. Change your thermestat while you are at it.........runjoe

What kind of coolant does a PT Cruiser (2002) take?


Chrysler recommends using HOAT (Hybrid Organic Acid Technology) formula coolant in PT Cruiser. If you want to do a partial refill and don't know which coolant has been used in your car, you need to do a complete flushing and HOAT replacement because HOAT coolants can't be mixed with other types of fluid.

Don't assume that HOAT is in the car now as a previous owner may have flushed it and replaced it with another coolant type.

Different coolant types, whatever they are, must never be mixed and you need to get all the old coolant out before adding the new fluid if the new is a different type.

Buy the genuine Mopar coolant for the PT which is available in the concentrate or in the premixed form.

They make a universal coolant now that can mix with most any type except some import brands.

I am sorry but our diagrams only go back as far as the 2004 model year. I suggest you try eBay for a used owners manual.

Is there a special antifreeze/coolant for a 2008 pt cruiser or can you use any coolant such as Peak, Prestone, etc?


those are company's but there are two different kinds of antifreeze. both do the same thing but are different colors red and green. you can run either one in any car but you can't mix them up. if you mix the it will gel up in time and make part fail. a local auto part store will tell you for free what type you have. hope this helps. thank you.

I used the bleeder screw to release the air pocket on my 2002 PT Cruiser but the air pocket keeps forming again.


fill coolant with bleeder open until the coolant comes out of the bleeder. if it still over heat and has air in the system replace the head gasket. hope this helps

What type of special engine coolant does the PT Cruiser take?


Anything as long as it says on the label somewhere; "phosphate free". You may be able to get long or standard life, but this is the only requirement. The Chrysler dealer obviously sells the right stuff and is surprisingly pretty competitively priced.
