Question about 1992 Toyota Previa
Hi, somewhere early this year, around January or February, a friend borrowed the van to Auckland about 6 hours drive from my place, Hawera. He on the air condition , the van overheating, he brought to the near by mechanic and they changed the thermostat, at that time there was no leaking with the water pump. Thank you !
The impellors in the water pump are prone to corrosion,especially if no or incorrect radiator additives have been used .this will cause water to stay in motor & boil whilst the water in the radiator stays cold because it cannot circulate.try flushing radiator ,installing a new thermostat (which is more than likely not opening )& radiator cap,refil with correct additive,.if the car still over heats then you will need to replace the water pump.bugger!!
