It'z a 2004 PT w/Turbo! Could it be the fan sticking? Or what??

Expert:  Dan replied 1 year ago.
It is not a fan sticking, if that was the case it would be fine at highway speeds and only overheat at low speeds or stops. When it starts to overheat does the heat on interior still work? How long does it take until it overheats? Thanks.

It , then blew hose back home when errands completed???Blew a hose Saturday, morn with in-town errands for about an hour and a half before blowing hose? Didn't regist. hot while errands done, then blew hose in driveway, after errans done??


 

Expert:  Dan replied 1 year ago.

Is the hose actually bursting or just disconnecting from fitting?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.


Broke something back by firewall, about middle of Motor compartment> Needs to be on lift or jacked up to find more3 I think. What parts are by firewall that pressure could break? Runs very ruff at low idle and when A/C is on?


 

Expert:  Dan replied 1 year ago.
The hose back by the firewall would be the heater core hoses which send coolant to heater core. How many times have the hoses broke? Is it the same hose that keeps breaking? Thanks.

What bigger thing could cause the bad idle, rough running, overheating on grades and the Intense pressure to blow stuff like hoses, clamps, cause high heat and blown stuff?? Engine, water pump, gaskets, drive train, etc.???

Expert:  Dan replied 1 year ago.
It sounds like you may have a blown head gasket, it would cause all of these symptoms and is somewhat common on this engine. At this point you should have a combustion test and pressure test done to determine if head gasket is leaking. It is about a $1300 job to have the head gasket replaced depending on where you go. Let me know if you have more questions or if there is anything else I can do to help. Thanks Angela.
