Question about Cars & Trucks

Heating problem I recently purchased a 6 cylinder toyota petrol motor after running for about 15-20 minutes the machine starts to run very hot ! I left the radiator cap of and dirty rusty looking water came out of the top (obviously very dirt water and need good flush out I took the themostat housing apart (no thermostat inside ?) do you think I should put one back in? also do you think that once I clean system ( flush radiator and engine block out ) my heating problem should be sloved ? No obviouse leaks , no sign of water in engine ( milky oil in sump ) fan and belt looks fine, radiator average to poor condition engine starts pretty much straight away everytime and this sounds fine. Any suggestions welcomed- thanks

Milky oil means water is mixing with it might be a gasket

There seems to be an air pocket or no antifreeze in engine block. Try this method disconnect upper radiator hose and pour water directly into hose down into engine block until it full. when its filled reconnect hose and fill up radiator. as the vehicle warms up open bleeder valve on the thermostat housing and release air from system. open slowly and BE VERY CAREFUL WATER WILL BE HOT, bleed until you get a steady stream opening and cosing valve. However if all of this don't work. You may have a bad pump. Good Luck

I'm reading that it is an air cooled engine with a carby
the indications are that either there is a heat sink problem for the electronic ignition ( ignition breaking down from the heat of the motor or the carburetor getting too hot and boiling off the fuel ( vapor lock)
There should be a heat stopping adaptor between the carby and the inlet manifold ( bakelite material)
fuel lines should be well clear of the engine
check float level as while it may be operating well , the hot fuel will eventually drop the level to a point where it is too low for full operation of the engine
check that the cooling fins around the head and the cylinder are not covered with dirt/dust

Best to get a timing light and set the timing in accordance with the decal under your hood. Or just turn the distributor with the engine running, i would guess counter clock wise, until it runs best. Turn it slowly, just a little at a time, and test it for power by brake torqueing. You don't necessarily want it at the place where it runs the smoothest.
