The pt cruiser keeps over heating the collent comes from under the radiator cap. I have replaced the cap 4 times, the thermostat 3 times (even tried leaving it out), the thermostat housing was replaced as well as the uper and lower radiator hose. I have just replaced the radiator as it blew out at the bottom. Seems like there is alot of preasure building up. I have also flushed the system twice, the heater was bypassed as the mechanic said it was a posible cause for a leak. I don't know what else to change other than the water pump. I cant even drive 10 miles without it getting stuck. Please help

By now you have damaged the head gasket which is the cause for all the pressure. Have a leak down test done to confirm.
