Default Aloha Everybody!!!

Heyy There,

I've Got a 2002 Pt Cruiser Automatic 2.4 with no Turbo. Recently had the Motor Flushed, and Replaced Radiator that had a hole in it. Shortly after it strated to Overheat for the first Time, so I changed the radiator Cap made sure there was no air in the system and also Replaced the Thermostat. Worked well for a couple of days and then started to overheat again...
Fan Kicks On after Warming Up, and The Coolant is Circulating fine??? Trying to fix it Myself before taking it into Dealer???



Thanks

Welcome to the forum.

The fan kicks on after warming up but does it come on as soon as you turn on the A/C? It should, if not, one speed of the fan motor might be burned up.

In the engine compartment there's a black bx partially hidden by the air filter. under the cover is a diagram that shows what all the boxes and fuses are for and of course if you have the owners manual it explains what everything is for in there. Both high and low fan relays are in the back box. The relays are usually found to be good if the fan isn't working but it doesn't hurt to check. As I said, the fan should come on any time the A/C is ON. if you can hear the fan, it's the high speed. The low speed part of the fan is very quiet.

Yes, you can take the thermostat out if you have kind of skills. The upper manifold needs to come off if you do it the easy way, otherwise it's pretty tight in there. To bleed the air, you need to get at the bleed screw which is right next to the thermostat and bleed the air out a few times to make sure all the air is out.

Great answer from Busted so you need the thermostat to make sure it seals correctly.

On the bleeding....here's an older link that hopefully it will answer your questions...
