Smile Over-heating issues

I found this how to Part 1 -How to Test for a Blown Head Gasket (Chrysler 2.0L, 2.4L) to be useful! As I had this problem with my PT Cruiser(son's old PT cruiser ), I was able to find, with the second part(exhaust leaking into cooling system, the source of my problem. I've read a few threads on here about this issue, one thing that Nitro posts is the head test(combustion), for those that want to check at home the other two test can be done with no tools! Those that are stubborn, like me, will do everything themselves. I was fortunate enough to have the tools, money, and time(weekends) to fix my PT myself. I like to thank this forum for being available for me to read and learn to be able to do these things myself! Perhaps this link, I found, can help those that will wait to the last resort(head test) to find where the over-heating issue is coming from. As this being a test for blown head gasket, at least this will help narrow down the source of problem.

Yep, this forum is a gold mine to anyone wanting to keep their aging PT going and in top condition. And I've found many of the members here to be very knowledgeable and generous in sharing that knowledge with folks wanting to fix their PT's themselves at home. Some of the other forums are not that way.
