Smells like it is overheating
I have a 2008 PT Cruiser and it smells like it is overheating but the needle would only go to the halfway mark. My windows fog up and turning on the defrost does not help. Tonight I noticed when I parked my car and left it running to get my mail, the needle was moving up past the halfway mark. Could it just be the thermostat or as the guy at Walmart said, a heater core?
I think it's a heater core, especially since the inside of the windows fog up. Is it a film that is hard to clean? The reasons you are overheating is because of the heater core leak, you are low on coolant, low on coolant a car will get hot quicker.
Definitely the heater core. The inside windows fogging is a dead giveaway.
