Default glub,glub,glub

I have the PT home from the shop, now, a problem I had before the accident, I blew 2 head gaskets and after the last one(head was shaved in case of warpage) the engine will over heat at a stand still(long stoplight etc) and when it gets up t "speed" it is ok. When I shut it off today I could hear a "glub, glub, glub" coming from the engine like there is air traped inside the engine? could that be part of the issue? When the head and gasket was redone all new thermostat and timing belt etc was put in...

You might have air in the coolant system.

I think Mean Green is correct. Trapped air. When they refilled the coolant system, somebody didn't bleed the air out.

Also, you might want to check if the fan is running when you have the AC on and your stopped at idle. If the fan isn't running, you might have a burnt out fan motor.
