Sounds like you need to bleed the air out of the radiator. If you already did that, there next thing might be a faulty coolant temperature sensor on the radiator or a loose connection from the coolant sensor to the radiator fan. The coolant temperature sensor turns on the radiator fan when it reaches a certain temperature.

1. Bleed the air out of the radiator.
2. Make sure the radiator fan is turning on.
3. Check for a faulty coolant sensor.

Good Luck.

    Your car is fine, as long as you don't have any oil/water mix and as long as it does not hit RED and the thermo fan turns on it is fine (as it states in the corolla owner's manual, the temperature will run up and down in the temperature gauge).

Only thing I do not see in your list and the most overlooked is a new radiator cap. The radiator cap itself is extremely important to regulate the pressure in the system and just something as simple as this could be the problem. If this doesn't I would have to know more. Is the heat working? If not could indicate a clog in the heater core. When you stop does the coolant overflow into the overflow (common condition when the radiator cap) is bad. Since you have done everything it is my guess since you replaced the radiator you used the old cap.

My 1987 corolla AE82 4 door sedan has an overheating problem. i changed the thermostat and radiator, not loosing any fluids, what could be the problem. Temperature sits at half way for normal and when i am...


Hi and welcome to FixYa,

Offhand, overheating as you described could be caused by:
  • too soft rubber upper/lower radiator hoses;
  • radiator fan clutch (is one is used) would need additional silica oil;
  • radiator fan relay switch;
  • radiator thermostatic switch for the fan.
A couple of ideas you may want to explore/consider:
  • wire the radiator fan directly to the IGN B+12;
  • remove the thermostat (not applicable in cold climate);
  • check water/coolant ratio (50/50);
  • some radiator fans will only work if and when the A/C or heater is engaged.
Good luck and Thank you for using FixYa.

Pls be informed that due to my current rank and rating, even a Helpful would be detrimental to my status. Should this solution not address your concern, it would be appreciated if you could just not rate it at all. Cheers.

Now what? Changed alternator but car still won't start.


a dropped/disconected starter solenoid cable is a good candidate, a heavy cable runs from the battery to the starter, a lighter cable runs from the ignition to the starter solenoid, the ignition key throws the solenoid which engages the starter pinion gear in the flywheel, and connects the cable to spin the starter motor. even loose may not be producing enoug current to fully engage the starter.
there is a fusible link in the battery cable that is a good candidate.
if the battery were disconnected during alternator changeover, look for loose cables at the battery posts, and corrosion on the posts.
if the battery was not disconnected look for collapsed positive plates on one or more cells of the battery..
