1994 toyota camry with over heating problem

I flushed the radiator twice new fluid. I think it could be the radiator fan since it doesn't turn on at all even when car is over heating and steam coming out of over flow tank. Ive never had any over heating problems with it before or any problems with it in 3 years always changed oil after 3K and did turn up less then 30K ago. What steps should i take before i go ripping the fan out and buying a new one. Could it just be a fuse or a relay. Its a 4cly. I read on here could be stuck thermostat, it runs okay for about 15 mins either at idle or driving before it gets hot enough to steam out the over flow tank. Slowly rising temp until its ready to blow. Thanks for all the help and info been a great car and hope shes got 2 more years in me until im done with nursing school. Thanks again

    Hi, and thank you requesting my personal assistance; I am sure that I can help you.

    First, I am going to need a bit more information before we can arrive at a solid solution.

    I need to know:

    When you start the car, and let it idle, without driving, how long does it take for the temp gauge to go from cold to the High side?

    The cooling fan NEVER comes on, is this correct?

    Now, I need to know this, and you are going to have to be careful...When the engine is hot & overheating, check the temperature of both the TOP and the BOTTOM radiator hoses; are they BOTH the same temperature? Be advised that you will need to use caution touching the hoses. If one is MUCH hotter than the other, this opens a whole new avanue of diagnosis; this info is paramount to me to help you.

    Is there any "white smoke" (CLOUDS of it) coming from the tailpipe.

    Get this info back to me, and we will get you sorted out.

You need to check your power steering fluid, if it's low it will kept the fan from coming on,
I know it sounds funny but it's true!!!

Last summer we had to replace the radiator on my 1993 Toyota Camry LE. We thought that would fix the problem with the car over-heating, but it didn't. The old radiator was corroded. My car still wants...

the corrosion you noted when you removed the old radiator is throughout the cooling system and is probably causing a blockage in it, he first suspect would be the heater core. When the new radiator was done, did you replace the thermostat too? If you didn't, replace it now, and get a good commercial flush and thoroughly flush out the cooling system, it might save you from having to replace the heater core.

'94 V6 XLE - Started slipping in reverse. Drained fluid and refilled, which which seemed to solve for a while, but now (1000 mi) is slipping badly again. Cold fluid level is good, but looks dark. Tranny...

Yea, was thinking same thoughts, you should've changed filter when fluid replaced. I would have it powered flushed and fluid & new filter. Toyota trans are pretty tough and this SHOULD cure the problem.

I have a 2001 camry that has started overheating. The two radiator fans are not turning. The blades spin by hand but are not turning on even when the ac is on. I was thinking to check the thermostat, water...

Check the ECT (engine coolant temperature) sensor. Both the fans will ground through this sensor. If it is failed, the fans will not come on no matter how warm the engine.

Hello my 1994 camry toyota has a problem holding the water. We replaced the thermostat,fan switch,radiator cap, and it keeps comsuming the water. What do you think the problem might be? Javier

Javier, have you checked the coolant overflow tank for holes, cracks, or loose hose? When the engine in your car heats up, the coolant expands. The coolant overflow tank (located near the radiator) takes up any coolant that is forced out of the radiator. If the tank is damaged or not connected to the radiator correctly, the coolant will not siphon back into the cooling system when the engine cools off.

Cant find thermostat on 1994 toyota camry

its on the driver sidde of the engine. You will see the radiator hose running to the thermostat housing. You must remove the radiator hose and thermostat housing to see it. also make sure your radiator caps seals aren't leaking, especially the one on the top passenger side of the engine!!

Flush your regulator, and replace your fan cooling system.

Coolant fan switch

it's hooked up to the temperature sensor. if you don't get a temp light on, the sensor might be bad. it's usually located where the upper radiator hose goes into the engine. also check your thermostat.
