Question about 2002 Chrysler PT Cruiser
2002 pt cruiser 4 cyl auto - overheating after 10 - 15 minutes use and only when sitting at a light, once moving again, it'll coll down some - coolant is full, replaced the thermostat, checked fan fuse (fuse is good. power at the fusebox) and relay (power to the relay - how would you check the relay itself?). Fan doesn't appear to be going on while at idle (and close to overheating). What should I check next? Is there a way to check the fan itself?
SOUND LIKE COOLANT TEMPERATURE SENSOR .BUT FIRST HOTWIRE COOLANT FAN USING JUMPER WIRES TO BATTERY IF FAN RUNS ITS GOOD IF NOT REPLACE FAN MOTOR..ALSO HOT WIRE RELAY TERMINAL 86 TO BATTERY POSITIVE POST AND 85 TERMINAL TO BATTERY GROUND POST USING JUMPER WIRES.IF IT CLICK ITS WORKING IF NOT NO SOUND REPLACE RELAY.IF ALL IS GOOD.THEN THE COOLANT TEMPERATURE SENSOR IS BAD.

Turn on the A/C and see if fan turns on, if not try to get at the back of it and rap on it with a hammer or rod of some sort. If it tries to run or runs slow it needs to be replaced. If it does not run, you will need to check power and ground when it should be running (a/c on)

I just had the same exact issue. I got the fan replaced. About 2 months later, same exact problem. Took the car elsewhere and they said there was a coolant pressure issue, and I had the whole system flushed, new cap. Now I have antifreeze leaking all over, and they tell me nothing's wrong. I'm no car expert, but I'm not car idiot. They told me it was condensation and wouldn't fix it. Now I'm thinking it's the thermostat.
