Question about 1991 Toyota MR2

1 Answer

Mr2 Hi, after talking to you yesterday about my mr2 head gasket i took another look, i can tell you now that there is no oil in the water and no water in the oil. I took the lid of the water and put some in and took the car for a drive, the temperature gauge stayed about mid way, i came back and let the car sit for a while. I then checked the water and needed to add some more as it looked to have gone, after i put more water i noticed some bubbles even after it sat a few minutes, i then revved the engine a few times noticed some white smoke coming out of the exhaust and the water started to rise and over flow with the temperature gauge slowly making its way up to half way on the reading. Does this sound like the head gasket or maybe a water pump problem.

Try that SteelSeal that you are talking about. Just follow the directions exactly.

My MR2 is getting a lot of pressure built up in the cooling system. It pushes the overflow tank's water out through the overflow hose. i replaced the thermostat and i keep adding water into the radiator...


Hi,
I just was reading this and had a few thoughts for you:

1. Is it possible the thermostat is installed backwards? That's an easy fix.
2. Is the radiator fan working?
3. If the pumping action from the water pump seems normal yet the engine still wants to heat up, it's possible that the radiator is clogged-up.
4. Worst case... If with the radiator cap off, the coolant literally blows out of the opening... and the engine has really heated up recently... you may have a blown head gasket. If you suspect this, have the oil drained for inspection of coolant in the oil and don't run the engine anymore. A major fix would be required.

Hope some of this helps you. Good luck!

My 86 toyota mr2 over heats about 10 minutes into running it. the anti-freeze leaks out from around the head gasket but the oil and the anti-freeze isn't mixed together. i'm not sure if i should replace...


Best bet is the gasket. After removing the head have it serviced professionally, replace thermostat and water pump and timing belt while in there

Head gasket was leaking on my 86 mr2 Replaced the


Check all the wiring connections that you loosened or took off when you removed the head. something is loose or disconnected ,eg., ground wires .
Make sure you have spark at spark plugs whemn cranking ,and fuel pressure.
Did you try spraying starting-fluid in the intake, see if the engine runs for a little bit.
Compression to be anything above 100 psi will firean engine ,sometimes lower too.

if yoiu have an oil pressure gauge is the pressure good? check the pressure and also cjeck the thermostat and water pump those are major causes of overheating if you have water in your oil ( check dipstick for 9oil and if its foamy and light brown you have a head gasket problem if not its something else of what Imentioned)

I have had exactly the same thing happen to me. In the end it was a faulty water pump which was allowing water into the engine.

Mr2 head gasket


Hooking up proper test equipment to the engine is the best way to check for a bad head gasket; usually, air is injected from a air compresser hose into the spark plug holes, with that cylinder having the valves closed. If coolant starts to bubble out of the coolant filler tube, it would then be safe to pronounce the gasket bad. Try some SteelSeal.
