Engine Cooling problem
2003 Chrysler PT Cruiser 4 cyl Front Wheel Drive Automatic 96,000 miles
Hey. The past week or so my car overheated after driving a while. Now, the tempurature gauge goes up at a stop light or when the car is idling. As I drive the needle goes down. I thought it was the thermostat but a mechanic friend of mine told me it might be the heating core. As that is very expensive I was hoping you might be able to tell me what else might be causing this. I read about testing the thermostat in hot water and will try this, but what else can cause this? I'm sorry but I don't have a credit card and not much on my debit or my donation would be bigger. Give me a week or so and I will gladly donate a bigger amount.
have the same problem?
