2001 CHRYSLER PT CRUISER (4 CYLINDER) – OVERHEATING ISSUE
My daughter drives my one owner 2001 Chrysler PT Cruiser (4 cylinder). A week ago she picked up a rock or something and developed a hole in the radiator. I took it to my mechanic who replaced the radiator and the hoses. A week later she drove home from school and stated that white smoke was coming from front hood (coolant smell) and the temperature gauge was at max. I opened hood and noted that the overflow tank was empty, but radiator still full. She said for the week since the new radiator was installed she heard a gurgling sound from under the hood after she would stop the car. Any thoughts certainly appreciated.
