Question about 1991 Toyota Camry
-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. -------------------------------------------------------------------

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.

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.

SOURCE: car's overheating
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)...
