Engine Cooling problem
2001 Chrysler PT Cruiser 4 cyl Front Wheel Drive Automatic 202832 miles
My engine is sporadically overheating. The radiator was replaced about 3 months ago, I have just replace the water pump, thermostat and timing belt. The cooling fan works on both high speed and low speed. Today following the replacements I ran the car about 15 miles and let idle for over 20 minutes with no overheating at all. After the car cooled down I started it up to drive again and it began to overheat in less than 2 miles. When the car overheats and I turn the heater on it will not blow hot constantly (alternating hot/cold air coming out the vents). There is no water in the oil or oil in the coolant, also no white steam out the tailpipe. Some have suggested the head gasket, but there are really no symptoms to indicate a blown gasket.
have the same problem?
