Question about 1995 Toyota Camry
When turning a corner the back end of the car sways back and forth like the care is about to tip over
I'd be concerned a linkage has come adrift in the back end somewhere, or one of the rear struts has failed and lost its oil. Another possibility is that a rear wheel is loose, either at the wheel nuts or the hub itself.
Here is a diagram, at p 80 and p 89.
Have a look under there and compare it to this, try to see if anything has fallen off. Look at the rear strut towers to see if there is any fluid leak visible which might indicate one side is not functioning.
With the car jacked up, grab each rear wheel at the tread, front and rear, then top and bottom, give it a hard shake to see if you can feel any looseness.
Never get under the car when supported only by a jack of any type. Use axle stands or wheel ramps.

Could be the lower control are bushing, it apparently is an issue with that model year. Big bucks (850 CDN$) to fix as the 'whole' front end needs to be partially dropped and both should be done at the same time. A mechanic should be able to see if that is a problem while the car is on the hoist. The mechanic should be able to point to the area or point where the contact is being made. Mine lasted till 100,000 km, I heard it on the second hand test drive ( at 90,00 km) and asked a buddy ( a Toyota Master Mechanic) about it and he made me aware of it; i bought the car anyways.

Firstly, ensure you have the required 'mixture' of coolant/water (must have required coolant).
Second, I would recommend you re-test all the cooling system sensors again (make sure they're within specifications), in case a new one is faulty.
Third, ensure the new thermostat was of the correct temp setting (they all differ), so that it opens at the required time. Most cooling systems operate within 90 - 100degC.
Fourth, make sure the radiator (and associated hoses) aren't blocked.
If your temp gauge is reading higher than normal, but NOT in the danger zone...then this can be considered normal (especially if you've replaced with new components) and nothing to be concerned about.
However, if the temp gauge IS in the danger zone....then this suggests the coolant is not flowing through the cooling system properly.
If all above components test ok, then it's possible your water pump may not be pumping enough volume.

Testimonial: "I appreciate your help...Maybe I should just relace the water pump, that would be the last thing that I would need to replace."
Your best bet is to get a service manual, which can usually be found on ebay. A third party manual by Haynes usually costs about $25.
