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.

Procedure to release an air pocket in the cooling system. Hoping Fan runs! :P


Is there an air bleeder valve near or on the thermostat housing? Crack it open to see if air escapes.
Usually to remove air from cooling system, you keep the radiator cap off after filling, start the engine and wait until the thermostat opens and the car has reached normal operating temperature, then shut off engine, top up the radiator and the overflow tank, replace the rad. cap. Try that to see if you can get all the air out. If still overheating, do check the fans. Then could have the coolant system pressure tested for keeping pressure in the system and no leaks.

Over heats throws out cold air


check the antifreeze level by removing the radiator cap with a cold engine. sounds like there is low coolant or an air pocket.
there is a bleeder screw usually at the thermostat that will solve the air pocket problem. Loosen the bleeder and allow air to escape the system.
Top off coolant as needed.

2001 PT Cruiser Automatic won't shift gears


OK... brains are expensive. It sounds like your PT STARTS OK, but keeps your TRANSMISSION locked.

Many transmissions have a 'lock' that is coupled to the car BRAKES. So the transmission may not allow SHIFTING if the BRAKE SWITCH is not sensed as 'brakes applied'.

APPLIED BRAKES = OK TO START/SHIFT. So it's possible a defective switch is your problem?

Find really GREAT information here:

How To Solve The PT Cruiser Transmission Problems

And there is this: "You Probably have a 604 41 TE auto trans (this is a four speed automatic trans)and if this is the case. Then you need to have the input and the output turbine sensor's replaced,(aka speed sensor) same thing different name. These sensors are cheap and have a high failure rate due to high temps the trans produces."

Now see this:
