Question about 2000 Toyota ECHO
The water pump was changed on our 2000 Toyota Echo and since then, the system has been air locked. There is also no heat in the interior of the car. How do we proceed to fix this problem?
Check your heater tap in the engine bay ...they usually ran off a vacuum hose.
If the system was not bled properly..ie by filling the radiator WHILE the bleed screw is open you will get an airlock.
the bleed screw is usually on or near the thermostat housing.
The water level must be higher than the top on the engine (I use a piece of PVC pipe in the radiator filler to do this.)
Also make sure the thermostat is not stuck in the closed position.
