Measure it ,simple,some models have a bigger rad and some have more tubes in matrix depending of the end market where vehicle is sold . Five Germans in an Audi Quattro arrive at the Italian border. An Italian police officer stops them and says "Itsa illegala to putta five-a people in a Quattro !"

"Vot do you mean, it's illegal ?" the German drivers asks.

"Quattro means four !" the policeman answers.

"Quattro iz just ze name of ze fokken automobile" the German shouts ... "Look at ze dam paperz: Ze car is dezigned to carry 5 people !"

"You canta pulla thata one on me !" says the Italian policeman. "Quattro meansa four. You havea five-a people ina your car and you are therefor breaking the law !"

The German driver gets mad and shouts "You ideeiot ! Call ze zupervizor over! Schnell! I vant to spik to zum vun viz more intelligence !!!"

"Sorry" the Italian says, "He canta comea. He'sa buzy with a two guys in a Fiat Uno."

1993 toyota camry v6. continually boils and percolates out through the overflow bottle. radiator done. thermostats etc only thing not done is the hoses.. any clue . seems to just boil up top

You may have a bad temperature sensor.

You may also have blockage in the cooling system. If you want to check for blockage yourself, you can do the following.

Checking coolant circulation;

After the engine has ran for 6 to 8 minutes, and the heater has been on for a few minutes, turn the engine off and very carefully reach behind the engine, at the firewall and feel both of the hoses that go to the heater core. ( the hoses are usually about 1 inch in diameter ).
If both hoses are hot, then you should have good criculation, however, if only one of the hoses are hot there is something blocking the ciculation.
I usually flush the whole cooling system first and if that doesn't fix the problem then you need to check, or have checked, the heater core valve. It's usually in the cab near the heater core, but some vehicles do have them in the engine compartment.

I hope this helps you.

I have a 1992 toyota camry le with a 3.0 v6. I'm having an issue with the heating system. It blows somewhat of warm air and not hot air? The engine warms up to normal operating temp. Do i need to change...

I would start by checking the hoses at the heater core. One should be hot the other cooler but still pretty warm. If one is hot and 1 is a lot cooler you probably have a plugged heater core. You can also check to see if you hear the blend door slamming and check air temp change when you switch from full cold to full hot. If there isn't a clunk at full hot or cold the door might be stuck.

I have a 2005 toyota camry.Leaking antifreeze on drivers left hand side. Mechanics took apart dash did presure tests etc. and can't find leak? Any suggestions?

The only antifreeze that goes into your car is two hoses (one in, one out of firewall, behind engine) that connect to what looks like a mini radiator. This is called the heater core. Usually this leaks to the passenger side, however it simply has to be your heater core leaking. Tell them to connect those two hoses together instead of running them into fire wall, and if the problem stops, which it will, to replace the heater core. How big is the leak by the way?

Base on the age of the car it can be few areas.

radiator cap (old)

radiator pin hole leak and/or at the plastic joint.

heater core (check for wet carpet on the passenger floor)

heater hoses

blowing heat gasket.
PLEASE check for white smoke AFTER the car is warm up. 10 minutes after start up.

Please check all of the above and port the result on the comment page/window,

Heater core

To begin, if you have A/C, you're screwed. You HAVE to take it into a shop cause the system has to be discharged. Otherwise: pretty much you need to take apart the entire dash. Well, the lower portion anyways. Take all the cover panels off, then take out the center console, and the plastic around your shifter. After that, take out the metal supports for the dash. Then take the duct between the fan (far right) and the heater unit (center) out. Now, you're left with the heater unit which is in the center. Go under the hood and around that center area you'll see two hoses coming out of the firewall. Drain the radiator, and then disconnect those two hoses. Now you can take out the heater unit. Inside the unit is the heater core. In order to install, just do the reverse. Hope this helps.

Frequently loss the coolant and temperature increase. Heater blow cool air instead hot air

You are losing coolant if you have a coolant pressure tester follow the directions and use it. If you don't when the car is cool use a 50/50 solutuion of water and coolant fill system and check all the listed items carefully with a flash light and look for leaks. It is either a bad hose, cap, water pump or radiator. Your coolant circulates through the dash and the blower blows throught the heater core to produce heat. No coolant no heat. I would also check the passanger side floor for anti freeze or moisture could be a leaking heater core also.

check the heater control valve. its a plastic valve in the engine compartment, ensure the cable is attached and also ensure that the valve moves when heat is selected. also it is possible that someone has bypassed the heater core due to a leak. check to make sure both hoses are still connected.
