SOURCE: toyota estima 2.2 td 1992 van overheating

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!!

SOURCE: Location of Water Pump and Thermostat

The water pump run right of the pulley, it would be the pully with the hose running off it. then you can follow that hose to the thermostat housing.

SOURCE: coolant leaking

Hello Kasalama :

Is it possible to wash off the engine while protecting the distribuutor and other electronics so we can start with a clean and dry engine ? . * Make sure that your radiator is full and that the Radiator/ Coolant overflow reservoir is at the proper level . * I would put a large piece of cardboard on the floor and along with a bright flash light or shop light use it to guide you where the leak s coming from .

If that is not helpful , I would perform a pressure check on the cooling system . The pressure check can be performed as a diagnostic tool . Put the truck in park and apply the parking brake . Attach the pressure diapham and Start the engine . You will have to manually pump it to a specified pressure as indicated on the gauge/ manometer .

The pressure diaphram usally attaches where the " radiator cap " is . Applying pressure can show leaking hoses, pipes and leaks in the radiator or fittings .

Be mindful that you can also have a leaking Intake manifold Gasket .

I hope that this info has been of help to you .

Will it hurt to run a 92 toyota 4runner with out a thermastate in it

Not at all. Just make sure the thermostat civer is sealed so you dont leak coolant. If you are overheating, has the waterpump been changed and the timing belt, since the water pump is timing belt driven.

Water leaking underneath the motor

A little leakage is normal. Also the A/C will drip water, but that comes down from the firewall area.

From the motor, it may indicate a leaky water pump. This will drip from the front of the engine which is the right side as the driver looks. The pump is located under the timing belt cover.

Also check all your large hoses to see if a leak has developed at any joint.

The V6 engine often develops a water leak under the intake manifold which is hard to see. The water appears on top of the transmission. Camrys will often also get a split in the plastic radiator top tank, so look there.

If you are not losing large amounts of water, you have a while to track it down at leisure !

WHAT IS THE COST OF REPAIR ON A HEAD GASKET FOR A 2003 toyota 4runner v6 . it is not blown yet but every oil change i have to fill the coolant reservoir so every 3000 miles

Hello, and welcome to FixYa. Please allow me to assist you.

More often than not, head gasket failures will result in an immediate overheat condition, and you will see billowing clouds of white smoke coming from the tailpipe.

To answer your question, the time to replace both head gaskets is about 10-12 hrs, at your local labour rate. My service department would charge 900 dollars labour. Then, figure about an additional 3-400 dollars in a gasket set, oil, filter, coolant and any machine-shop work that would be needed to true the cylinder head mating surfaces.

Before you do any of that...

Personally, I would suggest that you inspect the water pump on your vehicle. This is where you are most likely going to find you leak. 4Runner V-6s are known for the impeller shaft seal on the water pump to leak. To see/inspect the water pump, you will have to remove all of the plastic covers that are fitted to the front of the engine. Once they are all removed, you will see the water pump in the center of the cylinder block. If you see any evidence of pink or white crusty materials on or under the pump, you have found your problem...and, it is MUCH cheaper to change the pump, as opposed to doing the head gaskets.

I hope this helps you out.

Thanks for choosing FixYa for assistance today.

Waterpump leaking, maybe???

Either your water pump seal is leaking or you have a hole in your radiator hose. Either one can ruin your engine in minutes if left unrepaired. I lost a perfectly good Ranger pickup engine when one of my employees ignored the warning signs. Don't let that happen to you

Smelling antifreeze,i hear maybe waterpump,engine lightly sprayed on top in front of fan, engine runs rough when idleing but runs great at normal riding speeds running like this since august 08, when...

Could be a hose or the water pump either way when it leaks your fan is blowing the coolent back on your engine and could be blowing on your ignition wires making them wet and causing a miss fire. Do you have to add coolent regulary?

Power steering pump

if the leak isn't from the hoses or connectors under the car.  Clean the pump area with carb cleaner spray, then tie a small bit of white cloth around both hoses (tighten the clamps at the same time).  This will reveal the source of the leak.  If the hoses are OK.  It's most likely the front seal and requires a replacement pump.

1992 Ford Crown Victoria water leak out of bottom of engine after replacing water pump

You either have a leak from the pump area or one of your hoses is leaking. Start your motor and watch for where it is leaking from.
