98 Celica overheating problem - c7d7b55.jpg Cooling Thermostat.
Look along the radiator hose where it enters the engine. This controls the water temperature.


Toyota Celica Thermal Fan Switch The Toyota Celica thermal radiator fan switch is usually located in the radiator or the engine block and has 2 or 3 wires coming from the unit. The 3 wire switch has a dual sensor for dual speed radiator fans. The Toyota Celica thermo fan switches come in the factory temperature settings and also come in cooler thermostatic settings so the fan will come on at a lower coolant temp.

The Toyota Celica cooling system is made of aluminum components and requires a Phosphate free coolant. DO NOT PUT an over the counter antifreeze in your Toyota Celica, as it will ruin the radiator and water pump.

Toyota wont start over heated replace the thermostat and radiator cap could it be the water pump is bad how do I tell


if it wont start immediatly after it overheated then you may have blown the head gasket, or melted a coolant temp sensor or other sensor or wire. look closly for the melted stuff. remove radiator cap and fill with water to the top of the rim. have someone crank it and if a air bubbles come out while cranking then a headgasket is most likely blown. some little bubbles at first dont mean nothing. its a steam of bubbles the whole time its being cranked that indicates head gasket

KIA IS STILL OVERHEATING,


The thermostat is the engine temp controller. All the sensors do is relay information.

Are you sure your over heating. Has anyone infrared temp tested the actual temperature.

If you are really overheating a temp gun can test differnnt areas to try to find a blockage somewhere.

You could have a clogged radiator if you used a sealer in the coolant pryor to doing the head gasket.

Yes this has happened to me. The coolant temperature sensor tells the radiator fan when to turn on to cool the radiator. When this sensor is faulty your vehicle is overheating and it can cause a blown head gasket if not replaced. I hope this was helpful.

No wiring to be found for coolant temp sensor on '98 2.8 v6 Audi


What i would guess it that the person before you had the car, left the plugs off from the sensot, and they melted onto something that got very hot. That would explain why it would read overheating. Check everywhere near the sensor for places it could have melted onto and then either buy a new plug for it, or just soder the wires straight onto the sensor.(Not reccomended )

Temp Sensor


The temp sensor known as the engine coolant temp. sensor tells the computer if the engine is overheating and so forth and tells the injectors how much fuel to give the engine. The temp. sending unit is what controls what your guage reads. It sounds like you need the temp. sending unit. It located near the thermostat housing with a single pole connector.
