Just changed the radiator in my 2003 pt cruiser today. Could not get all the antifreeze back in. Assumed there is air trapped in the system. Started engine. Coolant temp gauge does not rise at all even after a few minutes. I'm afraid of hurting the engine. What should I do.

FYI this is a non turbo model
Hello, there is an air bleed fitting below the engine cooling system pressure cap, what you'll want to do is open that and fill the cooling system until a steady stream of coolant comes out of the fitting

Ok, I will try that. This is my first time on Justanswer.com. If that does not work, is there a way to let you know, or do I have to pay for another question?
