Question about 1985 Toyota Celica
Have you tried replacing the TCS ? ( temperature control sensor.)
Posted on Dec 06, 2008
When you replaced the thermostat did it have a little brass bypass valve next to the actual thermostat valve? If not you were not given the right part, there was a part update to deal with one overheating problem. Most dealers don't find the right one in their system, I don't know why it isn't cross referenced. I had my GTS checked by three different dealers in three different cities (I move around alot) and none of them were aware of the the update. They each made some adjustment or changed the thermostat and the overheating seemed to be fixed for a while. I finally found about the part change online. I bought my 85 convertible as it rolled off the truck, I just had to wait 15-20 years for the internet to be able to figure it out myself. ;-)
The correct part number is 90916-03070.
