Engine overheating? Check:
1. Coolant level at cold
2. Coolant leak check for loss of, during "not hot" running condition. (water pump, hoses)
If above is ok, I would replace the thermostat. It's inexpensive and easy enough to do.

Cam belt not addressed in this response...

Hope this helps with the overheating problem... Good luck!

2008 pt cruiser - check engine light came on, within minutes it started to "power down" and and died. Won't start. What could cause this? BTW have changed spark plugs, camshaft sensore, cranks

My PT did that when my timing belt broke. It cost $500.00 to replace it. If it is broken, be ready to have some motor work done. I had to have to values replaced at a cost of $900.00. If your timing belt is not broken then check the alternator and battery. I was riding down the road and my PT shut all the way down and would not start. I had to leave it beside the road. It was my alternator. It gave me no warning.

Can you tell me how to change a cambelt on a 1995

It would be better for you to go to the auto store and get a repair manual that has the information in it since there are marks that are important for timing.

Pt overheating within 5 minutes

first If the fans arent coming on, thats where we re gonna start. Make sure the radiator and reservoirs are full,If they come on when the ac is on, turn the ac on and drive it. Does it still overheat? Yes or no. Yes? need more info. No? We need to check fuses and temp sensor. Keep in touch. I ll help you best I can from here.
