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.

All the pieces are there...block ain't cracked, heads are apparently not warped...it's tinkertoy time...tell them to hold your calls, you're busy.
