Question about Chrysler PT Cruiser
We changed the fan, thermostat and radiator and sometimes the car just spikes in overheat mode. Weird thing sometimes turning on the air condition makes it drop down right away and it stays there, other times turning on the heat produces causes it to get back to normal temperature. What do you think is wrong with it? Relay issue maybe?
Check your fan relays and temp sending units...turning on the heat will help dissipate heat from coolant. turning on a/c will engage secondary cooling fan...check your relays and sending units

Only 2 parts remaining are the thermostat and waterpump. Always start with the thermostat when diagnosing an overheating problem. If the car is overheating constantly under all conditions and coolant is backing up into the reservoir, it's very likely to be the thermostat. If it only overheats at low speed or idling, it's more likely the waterpump.

It sounds like low coolant to me if it is not leaking out anywhere it is possible that you have a head gasket problem. I would suggest pressure testing the system to see if you have a leak or if it holds pressure. if you do this yourself be sure not to exceed 15 psi.

Turn ur car on defrost and check to c if fan is running. It should kick on on defrost. If it does not try checking fan or relay or your fuse. If of does and still gets hot maybe a good coolant flush will work.
