I have 2003 pt with 110,000 miles. Yesterday it over heated and had it towed home. I've had to add antifreeze a couple of times to help it out. Does anybody think this could be a thermostat.

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

It is bubbling, when running for long periods. I'm not sure if the head gasket is gone. I'm a Chevy guy.
Any response would be appreciated.

Bubbles in the coolant are a symptom of a blown head gasket and it will cause overheating. Have the compression checked to confirm.
