Question about 2002 Chrysler PT Cruiser
It may be the radiator. Please check the coolant recovery tank too make sure it does not look oily, plus be sure that you have NO coolant in your oil too.
These are cheapy single core radiators, that clog quit easily especially, if you add any stop leak. They are very difficult to flush and really not worth having repaired. Start off with a fresh readiator. Should take about 3 hours to take apart and put back together.

This happens when the Engine Coolant Temperature (ECT) does not reach 75°C (167°F) despite sufficient engine warm-up time.
This happens usually when the thermostat/temperature sensor is faulty, and is bad for emissions and fuel consumption.
The repair cost may vary, even if themperature sensor is not an expensive part, after replacing the sensor there is need to reset the ECU (car computer module).

Check the thermostat in boiling water if its opens then its good or if it does not open then thermostat is defective replace it ....

The best way is to have it up on a rack, and even then you'll contort your body and arms into weird positions.
You could always remove the thermo housing....
