Do you have one or two fans on the radiator? Most vehicle's with a/c have two fans. One of the fans will only come on when the a/c is on.

Thermostat or water pump?


Sounds like a thermostat is being sticky. A water pump issue should cause the vehicle to over heat quickly while driving if it is not pumping.

Pt cruiser 2008 overheat i change the raditor and the fans , thermostat and still overheat lot of money and still


Has the system been flushed? Correct temperature thermostat installed? Are you getting flow through the radiator? Rad cap sealing properly and is it the correct one? Are the fans actually coming on? Is the temp sensor working properly? Rad properly filled or still have air trapped inside? Water level correct? Water pump working or seized, leaking?

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.

2001 pt cruiser running hot after changing thermostat and radiator cap, it starts wonderfully, never even stalls when it runs hot, the only thing running hot is the antifreeze, it bubbles up , and the car...


Likely it's not a head gasket (yet) You should check your fans to make sure they are coming on properly. check that there are no leaves or debris stuck between the radiator and the a/c condenser and that the radiator is flowing well.
Even though the engine is running well after it gets hot, it is not good for the head gasket and can cause it to fail...take care of the problem asap!!!

Coolant leaks


That's probably coming out of your coolant return bottle. With rad cap off & engine cool, look at your level in the rad, if necessary top it up to an inch or so from top. Start engine, turn heater(not defrost) on and let it run until up to normal operating temperature. Keep an eye on temperature gauge & rad level. When it's at normal, watch for good flow going through rad when thermostat opens. after flow slows down,(thermostat closes) top it up if needed. If you watch 2 or 3 times for flow, and gauge doesn't go over normal, then put cap back on, then fill bottle only to mark for warm or hot engine, with coolant. If gauge goes up over normal from there, replace thermostat, and I'd get a new rad cap too. If that has electric cooling fan, make sure it comes on shortly after you see thermostat open & coolant flowing through rad.

2001 pt cruiser no heat


did you check the fluid level by removing the rad. cap? Radiator should be full to top. If Chryslers are low on coolant, the heater will not blow warm air.
