Question about 1991 Toyota Camry

1 Answer

What is wrong if the car over heats quickly?

-Every 10 miles, I need to add a quart to a gallon of water. -Both Fans do not turn on. -Water spits out between the Radiator and the House that connects to it. -If I press on the accelerator too much, the car seems to do this "putt-putt-putt" thing, especially going up any hill, or slant, like it`s about to die!

Ethier your car's overheating is a stuck thermostat or cause of overheating is a leak in your cars cooling system. -------------------------------------------------------------------

SOURCE: toyota estima 2.2 td 1992 water temperature high

I had same problem, but when I got to top of hill and sat idle for a bit, it would kick down ? replaced thermostat and still happened until I dumped radiator fix for temperature problems, overheating and such and has not happened since, no problems but even when I know the engine has to be overworked and should show hot, it never goes past middle. I'm not sure of name of liquid, got it from a car dealer, but it is basic about $18.

Check the thermostat. Maybe it's stuck closed or maybe it was installed backwards.

Sounds like the thermostat isn't opening, or you have a cracked head or bad head gasket and it is adding too much heat to the system.

Check to see if your radiator fans are working. If you have A/C just turn it on and both fans WILL come on unless there is a problem ie: bad fuse(s), relay(s), or motor(s). I don't mean to scare you, but, someone "could" have a pretty bad head gasket leak and still not see fluid come out of the exhaust. If the fans are both working, it could be any number of things from, a faulty coolant temp sensor, a faulty dash gauge, possible air bubble in the cooling system. Another easy check is coolant consumption, if you are leaking coolant into the cylinder while engine is running and/or into the crank case. Just check to see if your coolant level is going down and/or your oil level isn't growing because of coolant filling up your crank case. Hope this info helps...(subytech)...

I have a 1996 Pontiac Sunfire I don't know how much antifreeze put in it they say you can't add water to it so how many gallons of antifreeze do I put in it thank you in advance


If the system is empty, it will usually hold about 1 1/2 to 1 3/4 gallons of liquid. You can add water, but you want to make sure it is distilled water. you do not want to use tap water as the minerals will clog up your system causing more expensive future repairs. But you also do not want straight water as the boiling and freezing points are not optimal. Your best bet is to use premixed universal coolant.

If i have a concentrated formula of 1 qt of liquid how many ounces of this concentrate would it take to make 2 eight oz solutions per day for 8 days?


you have posted in the wrong section but my maths is pretty good so hope this helps.It would be much easier and more exact if you made up the whole amount then decant into 8oz containers, you have a quart =2 pts so will need 6pts to make the gallon , which i expect you already new ,if you must do it the other way then use 2oz of the concentrate and add 6oz of water

1996 Ford Taurus is heating up really quick if driven 5 - 10 minutes over 60 mph


If water pump is old,like over 70,000 miles on it,replace it when you do the fan belt and tensioner.
A new thermostat and a radiator flushing might also be in order. don-ohio (:^)

How much antifreeze should i put in radiator after a flush


sytem capacity is 8.6 qts. you want a 50/50 solution, so drain alittle more than a gallon of the straight water out, and add 4.3 qts. of dexcool antifreeze or equivalent. i always go slightly stronger just to be sure, but not too much antifreeze as it doesn't work straight. no more than 4.5 qts.

There was 2 bottles of water put in the gas tank


Try draining tank first if there is a drain plug. If no drain plug you will have to drop tank to empty it. Once tank is empty put in 2 gallons / 10 Litres of fuel and add a quart or 1 Litre of denatured alcohol or methyated spirits. The alcohol will mix with any water and consequently disperse through the fuel which will then be burnt normaly in the engine. When most of this mix is used up fill tank and add anothet pint of denatured alcohol to mix with any remaining water.

COULD THE RADIATOR CONTINUE TO MAKE A CAR OVER HEAT AFTER THEROMSTAT HAS BEEN REPLACED?


yes,, If it is plugged it will make the heat rise quickly ,, there has to be "flow" just as a precaution,, and it does happen,, thermostats can be placed upside down on some models, or the wrong temp setting on the unit itself is incorrect , also,, check (if you have elec fans,) make sure they are kicking in, Let the car idle for 10 minutes or so,, with the AC off, the fans should engage once the temp goes up to cool the water in the radiator itself, Once the motor water hits the temp on the thermostat it opens allowing the motor water to be replaced with what was in the radiator,
