Re: Pt crusier 2001 overheating

If it all started after replacing the radiator it could be possible that you have a air bubble in the system. Some vehicles can be a major pain to get all the air out. Make sure that your cooling fan(s) is coming on. If the fan(s) aren't that could be the issue. The cooling system can't displace the heat quickly and can cause the vehicle to overheat. It would be some really bad luck to blow a head gasket from replacing a radiator. There is a special tester that can test for exhaust gases in the cooling system. Other then a mechanic shop I'm not sure where you would have access to this tool. It would be cheaper to use this tool over removing the head to find nothing.
