Asked by Dec 21, 2013 at 01:41 PM about the 2003 Chrysler PT Cruiser Touring

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Well I have a friend that has a heating
problem with his PT cruiser.  Well he
actually changed everything that has to do
with the cooling system. Does anybody have
an actual idea what could be going wrong?
It has new radiator, water pump, with new
cap, fans, hoses and just about everything
completely new. So how can I fix the still
heating problem with the PT cruiser any
ideas?

After replacing cooling system items did they complete bleed the air out of the system? If not trapped air will cause it to overheat.

Yup they told them to do it the second time it overheated.

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......
