SOURCE: 1993 Toyota Camry V6 Timing Settings

Get a T belt from toyota. It has 3 white lines on it and and arrow mark. 2 lines are solid and one is broken. Put the arrow facing away from the engine. The cam gears have a dot punched into them near a certain tooth. This is where the solid white lines will line up with. The crank gear will have a dot also. It will line up at 90 degrees from the top, towards the front of the car. This is where the broken line will match up with. With the belt installed with all lines on their proper dots and arrow away from the engine, you valve timming is correct.
Of course you need to remove and compress the tensioner also. I assume you know this already since you didn't ask.

SOURCE: where is the thermostat for 1995 toyota camry v6

the thermostat is located driver's side of the vehicle. Follow the upper radiator hose to its end to a water outlet housing. the thermostat is in the outlet. take off the air flter lid and hose and it is easier to get to. take the hose off and the metal line to the housing. the other part of the housing is holding the thermostat. it is held with two 10 mm bolts. good luck.

SOURCE: how to change a thermostat in a 2001 toyota camry

This is better done when your engine is cold.
Park the car on a level fround.
Open the hood and remove the radiator cap.
Put a sizable container under the radiator and open its drain-plug.
(the drain-plug is by the radiator lower back wall).
Thermostat is in the inlet pipe held by three 10mm bolts that's attached to the engine block. (please note how it sitted)
Installation is reverse of removal. (replace o-ring around thermostat with a new one)

What causes a 1993 toyota vienta to heat up excessively


Coolant level low, thermostat stuck closed, radiator fans failed, head gasket leak to coolant jacket

After checking the coolant level, look at the radiator fans when it is very hot to see if they operate.

If OK, have a mechanic do a simple check for combustion gases in the coolant, and a compression check on all cylinders. This is not expensive.

If OK, change the thermostat and flush the radiator.

Thermostat location


You probably have the iron block 3VZ V6, on which the thermostat is located in the water pump housing, under the water inlet. All this is behind the timing belt cover, so think about what stuff can be wisely replaced, if all that has to be taken off.

If the alloy block 1MZ V6, it is more conveniently located on the outside of the engine, in the water inlet where coolant comes from the bottom of the radiator up to the block.

Radiator toyota camry 1998 v6


You may have

- a coolant leak somewhere, comes out when the engine heats up and pressurises the radiator. Camrys do develop a crack in the plastic radiator top tank, which can be hard to see if on a seam. Another place which leaks is under the intake manifold, which is not visible. There is a test, called a "leak-down" test

- thermostat stuck closed, preventing coolant circulation

- a leak through a head gasket from a combustion chamber to the coolant jacket. This will quickly cause overheating, and sometimes causes white bubbles in the radiator neck, like dry ice. There is a test kit available for gases in the coolant.

I HAVE A 93 TOYOTA CAMRY LE V6, THAT HAS A WATER PROBLEM, THE WATER KEEPS GETTING VERY HOT, ENGINE PUSHES THE WATER OUT TO THE COOLANT RESERVOIR, LEAVING MY RADIATOR DRY. I HAVE REPLACED THE THERMOSTAT AND...


These engines will overheat for many reasons. >>make sure there is no leaks at all, as air will cause the system to overheat while losing coolant at the same time. Depending if the radiator is original or after market, there may be TWO radiator caps (one on the engine and one on the radiator)- the one on the engine usually is faulty because of direct engine heat to the seal.>> On the thermostat housing, there is an O-ring at the end of the feeder pipe, usually leaks especially if the thermostat was replaced and not the O-ring. >>Check also the hydraulic driven radiator fan>>Check power steering fluid for proper levels first. unplug the switch atop the powersteering pump, start engine, rev to 2000 rpm (fan should increase in speed-you should hear it) if not it may be faulty.>> Check system for proper flow- With engine cold, remove the engine side radiator cap and rev the engine(1000rpm) slightly, notice if the coolant is flowing. If not, possible faulty pump, or clogged radiator. Hopefully this helps
