Please tell me where the thermostat is located. Thank you!! What are some of the symptoms of a sticking thermostat?

The thermastat is at the end of the radiator hose on the engine, under the housing the hose attaches to. Over heating, heater blows cold, is the symtoms.

I cannot find the thermometer for the radiator on the 1993 toyota camry. Where is it? Can it be relaced without a rofessional?

It should be a heat sending unit. And probably located on the head or intake manifold. Close to the top radiator hose. May be a different one near the bottom hose. It is possible to change yourself. Wherever you buy one at, have them print you a diagram on where it is located. Or they can show you on computer. Piece of cake.

1994 Honda Civic LX\overheating within 2 mile drive

Remove and raise upper hose at thermostat end and remove lower rad hose.
Fill rad with a hose and watch for flow from bottom rad hose and/ or bottom rad hose connecton.......water should fall though rad easily.
Honda rads are cheap.....any restriction....replace rad.

Remove thermostat....fill thermostat housing with hose and watch for water flow at bottom rad hose.
Flush good.

Remove heater hoses.......flush back and forth until a good flow is present "With heater control set to hot" if no or poor flow....replace heater core.

Stop leak can plug everything.

Also.......not likely causing over heating....but your mileage,if you do not know if the timing belt has been changed.....CHANGE IT NOW!
Water pump is optional at this mileage.
