Chrysler: I have a 2004 pt cruiser with 78,000 miles on it.

Customer Question

I have a 2004 pt cruiser with 78,000 miles on it. I have just had the timing belt, water pump, cam sensor, and thermostat replaced using manufacturer parts. The engine runs great. My problem is that after 25 miles or so the car starts to overheat. I have pulled the radiator ,flushed it, and cleaned between the radiator and the air conditioner. I have used a block tester but cannot get a negative result. the air conditioner is low on charge and does not cool. Any ideas ?

I have also replaced the radiator cap . Is it possible for the air conditioner to be causing this ?

if the ac is low on charge no it won't cause it to over heat you may still have some blocked passages in the radiator unfortunately you may have to end up replacing it
