A couple of things. Simplist is to flush & refill the radiator. Collant level could be low. Mine was doing it mainly when stopped a lights or at idle speeds. If I reved the engine around 2,ooo RPM, it produced heat. Once I flushed and refilled the cooling system, problem went away. Good luck!

Ensure coolant system has been properly filled.
Carry out all air bleed operations as specified by the manufacturer- (don't forget to open the heater core supply valve).

SOURCE: I HAVE A 2003 CHRYSLER PT CRUISER. RUNS HOT !

A lot of people overlook the simple overflow tank cap. If this cap loses the psi pressure it requires to hold then it can make the engine run hot because it's losing pressure. Think about it like this, if you have ever had a radiator to leak, the water level could be good, but the temp gauge shows it overheats. This is because the system isn't holding the pressure. The cap cost about $7. I'm not saying this will fix the problem but it is overlooked and fixes the problem on a lot of over heating cars.

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.

Unfortunately, I do not think you will be able to use the flush kit on your car. There are two lines with very short hoses. The one you are looking for is only a few inches long. SORRY.

I have a 07 pt cruiser top and bottom radiator hoses are hot both heater hoses are cold it's full of antifreeze and I've flushed the heater core with garden hose and have good flow has new Stat


Hi Kenny:
Odds are that you have an air lock in the heater.
It is higher than the radiator so it can be a pain to get it filled.
Sincy you've figured out how to flush it, I'd suggest that you try to use that technique to "prime" it from the hose that is connected to the lower fitting.
Hope this helps.
Cheers and Happy New Year.

Car is overheating. Flushed three times--no improvemrnt. Can run pretty well with heater on and windows open. Doesn't heat up at idle speed. Someone suggested a loose fan belt but it is hard to...


There are 3 common reasons for a car over-heating:
  • lack of coolant due to a leaking radiator hose
  • clogged thermostat-fails to open to allow more coolant from entering the the system
  • bad water pump- although most bad water pumps tend to leak, it's possible to have a bad bearing inside the water pump which in turn would fail to adequately circulate coolant

Look under the hood on the fire wall where the heater hoses go into the interior ogf the car. The heater core is just inside under the dash. theree is no easy way to tak out the heater core. But it is done all the time.
Do that only if it's leaking and the carpet under the dash is wet. If not, try flushing the heater core .With the engine cold and the radiator empty, Take both hoses off that connect to the heater core. Insert some hoses to both the inlet and outlet so you can direct the water down and away from the engine. With a good stream of water pressure. Put the water hose into one of the inlets. And spray the water in until it comes out the other hose. Flush out everything that may be clogging the core.
