2003 PT Cruiser overheating

Asked by Jul 27, 2016 at 10:14 PM about the 2003 Chrysler PT Cruiser Limited

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I own a 2003 PT Cruiser LTD. I've changed the thermostat, replaced the temperature sensor,
flushed it, refilled it and yet it continues to overheat about every 10 miles. What am I missing
here?

Cooling fans operating properly? Dirt and debris blocking the radiator air flow? Internally restricted radiator? Cooling hoses collapsing while driving? The dreaded blown Headgasket. HTH

Wrong type of antifreeze can cause the car to over heat if the green is mixed with the orange. The dexcool is the correct antifreeze to use which is orange. Do a complete flush and refill with the orange dexcool 50/50.
