That's one of the longest sentences I've ever read! Guess they don't teach punctuation where you come from.

You said you bought a "dlush". What the heck is that?

Why do you have a poll on top of your post that has nothing to do with your problem? The radiator is probably fine.

IF I understand what your trying to say; you either have a small leak that you can't find or you have tiny head gasket leak which you wouldn't see out the tailpipe because the coolant is being burned in the combustion chamber.

Take it to a mechanic and have them do a pressure test, compression test and a leak down test to find out where the water is going.

Finally, do you own a PT Cruiser? What year, what mileage and what maintenance has been done to it?

His fans maybe not working?
It's just boiling over like mad?
Turn your heater ALL the way up under 20MPH until you get it fixed!
