2002 pt cruiser overheats
Went over a hill the other day car started to heat up pulled over let cool down added water...had someone replace thermostat & radiator cap...now when I go over 60mph starts warmimg up...have to turn on heater in car to keep gauge in middle line. seem to do fine around town.. had a pressure test done and no leaks...What would you suggest Thanks Paula Evans
Might try back flushing radiator. It could have sludge in radiator not allowing the water to flow thru it properly. Have you ever used any thing like stop leak? If so I would definitely suspect a stopped up radiator.
Sadly, it could be a leaky head gasket. had that happen to my 2007
What we found was leaves and trash in the bottom one third of the radiator. Since the A/C Condenser and Transmission Cooler make up the front part of the radiator assembly. And the Water part of the radiator for the engine is the back half (( closest to the engine )) .... Trash, Gunk and Leaves had accumulated between the two parts. The bottom one third of the radiator was so clogged that no air could pass through the cooling fins. We hope this has been helpful......
