Tell us a little more about you and your car for proper introduction to the forum..

After your next trip, when the car is hot, check the little bleeder on the thermostat housing and closely check the black rubber tubing that runs between the neck of the radiator fill and the over flow tank for cracks or leaks.

I would suggest checking the little hose that goes from the radiator cap to the overflow reservoir tank.

Also check the thermostat housing. It's a common problem with PT Cruisers.

I see that JoeX posted similar suggestions as I was typing.
