Default Chrysler 2000 few issues

Good afternoon all, I am the new proud owner of Audrey my 2000 PT Crusier only had her a week tomorrow. I only paid a small amount for her ao in now way was I expecting a pristine car with no issues. She does have a few issues that we are sorting through. The main one being when she does a journey eg a short one she bubbles over. First of all we have changed the thermostat and currently waiting delivery of the lower and higher relays and a new temp sensor. Also replaced the eroded radiator cap.

The other issue we have is that we disconnected the battery and since the stereo which is original needs a Code. The car being the age she is we didn't get a handbook with her does anyone know how we can retrieve this?

Great full for any hints or tips anyone has as we haven't owner a PT Crusier before. However has always been a dream car.

Welcome to the forum from the great sovereign state of Arkansas!

So you are from Warrington in Cheshire, England?

Your PT is likely going to be a little different than the US version. What size engine do you have?

Also, the US radio does not need a code. So you may have to ask one of the other Brits on the forum.
