Question about 1994 Toyota Camry

1 Answer

Refilling Anti-Freeze 1994 Camry V6 with a hydraulic radiator fan. Is there a special procedure to refill the radiator? The following link on yahoo states "You have to start it up empty after you do your repairs. When the guage on the dash starts to go up, have someone hold the accelerator at 2000 RPMs. While the car is being held at 2000 RPMs, begin to fill the radiator" http://answers.yahoo.com/question/index?qid=20071020113419AAjrLy2

    Re: Your link- What a load of garbage. Anybody who would tell somebody to start up a dry engine should be fired. After 30+ years in the auto business, that is the most blatently ridiculous post I have ever seen.

    NO NO NO ! That is NOT good information. If you follow that information, you are going to DAMAGE your engine! You fill the radiator like you do any other vehicle, and then you bleed the air out thru the aux rad cap on the passenger side. Please do NOT run the engine with no coolant in it as you have described! The automotive information that FixYa provides is much better than some

No ther isn't a special way to refill the radiator. the way they are describing it is a way that you wont get any air caught in the lines. otherwise you can just put anti-freeze in the radiator or the overflow tank.

    the only time your going to damage your engine is by letting it over heat. if you start the motor and then start putting in the anti-freeze you won't damage your motor at all.

Is there a fuse that runs the radiator fan in 1997 buick lasabre


there is a fuse aswell as a sensor switch in the radiator itself which when reaches certain temp activates fan to cool radiator, if radiator isnt getting all that hot or not at all there is a thermostat built into cooling system, generally to side above gearbox or to the front of engine, this could be stuck closed which will prevent water circulating, you can identify this part by looking for a dome shaped plastic or metal piece bolted to engine (generally two, one either side, and it will have an electrical sensor located in it or beside it, drain coolant, remove domed cover and there you will find thermostat, purchase replacement and refit making sure to clean all joining surfaces and use or apply proper gasket or liquid gasket to seal joint, filling cooling system is bit mor tricky, for this just google car make model with coolant filling procedure, dont forget to add anti freeze when refilling, this also acts as a summer coolant.

Engine warms well, heater fan blowing well, but very little heat comes into cab


It could be one of two things.
1. Bad thermostat. Your thermostat is pobably not opening when the engine warms up. Install a new thermostat and you should be OUT OF THE COLD. If not,
2. Your heating core and radiator is probably clogged. One way to solve this is. Flush out your radiator with radiator flush kit. Pease read your owners manual, (YOU NEED TO USE A SPECIAL TYPE OF ANTI FREEZE). If you use the the green color Presotne anti freeze, It will gradually corrode through the linings of your radiator. And the green color prestone anti freeze will blow out the radiator. So read your owners malual ( I beleive it says you have to use Dextron Anti Freeze ( Pink Color).. Replace your thermostat and flush out your radiator. Then refill your radiator with dextron anti freeze. Also make sure the anti freeze resivor is filled to the proper level.. Once you do all of this, YOU DEFFINITLY WILL BE IN HEAT.. YOU CAN DO THIS YOUR SELF ( iT WOULD TAKE ME NO MORE THAN 1 TO 2 HOURSFOR ME TO DO THIS IN MY DRIVEWAY) OR YOU CAN HAVE THIS DONE AT ANY QUICK LUBE LOCATIONS... HAPPY MOTORING

1993 Toyota Camry V6: Engine Overheating Prob


Yes if it hydraulically operated it could be because the pump for the fan is bad. If I am not mistaken the fan is run off of the power steering pump correct. check and make sure the pump is working correctly. I have not seen a hydraulic motor on a car I know they put them on a lot of diesel trucks like humvees and some Chevy diesels but not on a car. Most are usually electrical. I know on humvees with a hydraulic fan they have a fan controller check this and make sure it is working right you can unplug the controller and the fan should stay ingaged and turn faster.

Is there a special way to add coolant to the Grand PRix


I assume it's a V6, I know from working on Fords and when we would refill the radiator on a V6, we would take the upper hose loose from the radiator and back fill it that way. Hope this helps

Replacing the cooling fan on a 1993 toyota camry


On the '92-95 V6 Camry, the radiator fan is hydraulically operated by the power steering fluid and power steering pump. If the fan isn't running as fast as it should be, check your power steering fluid level.
