PT Cruiser still overheating

Asked by Guru1NZJD May 25, 2020 at 04:24 PM about the 2002 Chrysler PT Cruiser

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

2002 Chrysler PT Cruiser would overheat dramatically
when I would stop at a red light, or sitting at a drive-thru.
Runs good on the highway, but idling and stop and go
throws it into the red and makes it boil. I changed the
heater core about 3 days ago and it is still doing the same
thing. Also the thermostat had been changed before this.

Overheating at idle or low rpm is caused by the cooling fan not coming on. Have the fan system diagnosed and fixed.
