2002 toyota celica gts overheats

I've had the thermostat replaced , radiator flushed and engine flushed out yet the car still overheats. I can let the car sit and idle for an extended time and it doesn't overheat. I can drive the car and keep under 45 mph and it doesn't overheat but if I drive it over 45mph the car temp creeps up until it overheats.

I would do a compression test and leak down test to determine if the head gasket is blown, that is the most likely reason

Drain bolt for radiator flush on a 2001 toyota celica


There is a drain in the side of the block normall near the back on the side. Sometime it is a tap that you screw in not out to open it. It is possible to flush without removing the plug but if you want a good job take the time to remove the thermostat and flush using the bottom radiator hose and not through the radiator as you won't want any muck blocking up the cores in the radiator. Then flush the radiator from bottom to top.

On a 2000 toyota celica gt, the engine will overheat when driving only, what can cause this?


Have you checked the engine temperature when the gauge shows fully high if it is true message and not lying and the problem is the temperature gauge? Since this happened stop the car open the bonnet touch the radiator hoses and even with off running engine touch the vents of the radiator to all surface and see it the temperature is everywhere the same.

1990 toyota pickup is running hot and when i shut


Try with the small stuff first. Replace the thermostat. Before you do that, you should flush and refill your system with just water after the flush process. The bottle of solution that you put into your radiator to flush it and clean it has instructions, follow those. Then let the car cool down and drain the system and refill it with fresh water only. Run this water for a bit and then do it once more. Once cooled back down , replace thermostat and replace the 50/50 mix of antifreeze and water.
Check engine oil level as well, low oil will overheat engines quickly.
