Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Pt cruiser 2007 keeps running hot I can hear water gurgling in the over flow.  The radiator cap was replaced and the thermostat.  When I turn on the air I do see that the fan is running.  I do not have any white smoke or water coming out of the tail pipe nor is my oil a milky color.  What else could the problem be?

It could be the relay for the fan. If you drive down the road it should get cool. If not you may have a bad water pump. The water pump has a outlet on it to tell you if its bad. If water runs out of it it's bad then you must change the thermostat because it will stick.. Hope this helps.

We had the same problem...after fixing everything around it - we found that it was the radiator.
