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.

No motor isn't locked, But i get what your saying. If anyone could give me a parts list on what i need to replace as I'm on fixed budget, It would be very helpful. Thanks James
