Usually on or near thermostat housing, but if you can't locate it, leaving rad cap off & heater on & rev engine slightly, once in a while, and wait until rad fan comes on & off 2 or 3 times & you should be good. Top up, install cap, top up bottle.

Why is my 2006 pt cruiser still overheating and bubbling when i replaced the radiator the thermostat and the o2 censor

O2 sensor has nothing to do with engine overheating. Are you losing coolant? Did you bleed all the air out of the cooling system after replacing radiator? Have you checked the coolant for exhaust gas byproducts? You may have a bad head gasket, or a cracked block/head if you ran the car for an extended period while overheated.

2003 PT Cruiser . We have tried every thing replaced thermostat + flushed radiator + replaced hoses + checked fan but two days later it over heats when moving in very slow traffic

HAve you check for a bad water pump?.. sometimes even new thermostat are defective too.
Do you know if your car has a relieve valve to bleed the cooling system. If the system has air it will over heat at low RPM's. Sometimes even flushing the radiator wont firx a cooling system with air.
So make sure about these two things I mentioned.

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.
