SOURCE: how do you replace a thermostat on a 2002 toyota

The thermostat is located in the water inlet housing that is connected to the lower radiator hose.
The thermostat is equipped with a by-pass valve. If the engine tends to overheat, removal of the thermostat would cause a decrease in cooling system efficiency.

CAUTION NEVER drain coolant directly onto the ground! NEVER open, service or drain the radiator or cooling system when hot; serious burns can occur from the steam and hot coolant. Also, when draining engine coolant, keep in mind that cats and dogs are attracted to ethylene glycol antifreeze and could drink any that is left in an uncovered container or in puddles on the ground. This will prove fatal in sufficient quantities. Always drain coolant into a sealable container. Coolant should be reused unless it is contaminated or is several years old.

SOURCE: 2001 toyota celica head sticks, possible oil pump.

Replacing the oil pump is a major job which involves tearing into the engine. I don't know what you mean that the cylinder head sticks, but I can assure you that just replacing the oil pump is not going to fix your problem.

SOURCE: how hard and how long does it take to replace a

Hi , A lot depends on which line it is. As a rule brake pipes are not difficult to replace if you have the replacement parts. The worst bit is bleeding the system after you have finished. If you cannot get the parts then you need special tools to form ends on the metal pipe. Time taked can be a couple of hours for a small pipe to a couple of days to replace everything.
Hope this helps Dwane4444

98 Celica overheating problem


c7d7b55.jpg Cooling Thermostat.
Look along the radiator hose where it enters the engine. This controls the water temperature.


toyotacelicathermalfanswitch.jpgToyota Celica Thermal Fan Switch The Toyota Celica thermal radiator fan switch is usually located in the radiator or the engine block and has 2 or 3 wires coming from the unit. The 3 wire switch has a dual sensor for dual speed radiator fans. The Toyota Celica thermo fan switches come in the factory temperature settings and also come in cooler thermostatic settings so the fan will come on at a lower coolant temp.

The Toyota Celica cooling system is made of aluminum components and requires a Phosphate free coolant. DO NOT PUT an over the counter antifreeze in your Toyota Celica, as it will ruin the radiator and water pump.
