Default Overheating crisis....please help!!!

I am new to the site and turbo platform. My name is Rick and i own a 2004 pt/gt cruiser 2.4t auto stick with every option available all the way down to heated and cooled seats....I've owned the car and love it for only about 2-3 weeks..it was my aunt's car and was very well maintained..it just turned 100,000 miles and started overheating when I'm sitting at a red light or parked...I can hear it gurgling in the firewall..I always shut it right off...but can anyone enlighten me to any extra precautions I should know before changing g the thermostat to a 170-180 degree fail safe thermostat?
I'm being told this platform requires a specific coolant...I will be checking out the other topics in the forums but any answers would be greatly appreciated...
