Eythelene glycol ,any make any colour its all the same stuff ,pure is best rather a diluted solution as it works out cheaper to buy 5 litres of concentrated and dilute it than a ready mixed stuff and pay for the packaging ,you can use the concentrated neat into teh rad it will not hurt it ,in fact its better for teh vehicle as will allow the cooling system to corrode

SOURCE: coolant

Read the under hood specs. this coolant can be purchased at the dealer. But, it is orange in color. Not your regular coolant and it is a little more exspensive. Change your thermestat while you are at it.........runjoe

SOURCE: Change the thermostat on 2002 Chrysler PT Cruiser

Hi, i have put together a step by step guide that will help you with this replacement job. Make sure the vehicle is in a cool state before starting this job.


* Drain some coolant into a clean container until the coolant level is below the thermostat housing.
* Remove the upper radiator hose connection from the thermostat housing.
* Loosen the housing bolts and remove the housing.
* Remove the gasket and scrape it carefully from the surface of the housing and the mounting surface on the engine. If the gasket remains on either of the surfaces, there will probably bea coolant leak after reassembly. Some engines use a rubber O-ring to seal a thermostat housing.
* Compare the size of the thermostat to the old one. They are of different sizes, types, and temperature ratings.
* The temperature rating is stamped on the sensing bulb on the bottom of the thermostat. The temperature bulb faces the block.
* When replacing a thermostat, be sure that the thermostat fits into the groove in the block or outlet housing. If the thermostat is installed upside down, the engine will overheat.
* Install the gasket.
* Reinstall the thermostat housing. Refill the system and run the engine or pressure test to check for leaks.
* When the engine has reached operating temperature make sure the thermostat opens.
* You should be able to see coolant circulating within the radiator.
* Another way of checking thermostat operation is to feel the top of the radiator hose or use a thermometer or multimeter with a temperature probe to confirm that the coolant is warming up.
* If the engine is overheating, but the top hose is still cool to the touch, the thermostat is stuck closed and must be replaced.

NOTE
When a paper gasket is used and the recess is in the thermostat housing, it is a good practice to position the thermostat into the recess and glue the gasket to hold it in place. If it falls out of its groove during installation, the outlet housing can be cracked or a coolant leak will result. Before tightening the water outlet housing, try to rock it back and forth to be sure it is flush. Housings are often cracked during this step.

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.

Overheating engine


Check your oil dipstick for coolant, or a mucky substance. Your symptoms sound like a blown head gasket.
