    While I was driving my truck a week and a half ago it started to overheat after and hour plus drive in the summer heat. I pulled over and once it cooled down noticed it was low about 2L of coolant. I topped it up and it was fine for a week and a bit. I decided to change the rad cap just ot be safe. I had not noticed and leaks and did not smell the coolant at the time of the overheating. I checked the oil to make sure there was no contamination and the coolant reservoir was almost full. The truck seemed fine until yesterday when I made a 5 hour trip. About 3.5 hours in to the trip I stopped to get a drink and noticed as soon as I stopped the temp started to climb. I pulled over and let it cool down and it was about 2L low of coolant again. The oil appears fine, I did not see or smell any leaks and the reservoir still had some fluid in it. Ihave no idea where the coolant is going but its going somewhere

I have a 91 22re 4wd 5spd when it first starts it makes a loud clacking noise that goes away after a few seconds what is that noise my rocker arm shafts and rocker arms are in good condidion

The 22re engine was infamous for having timing chain problems where the timing chain guide and tensioner would rub on the back of the waterpump. Check your timing chain to make sure all components are operating correctly and check the back side of the water pump. If it succeeds in tearing up that water pump cover you will coolant rush into engine and water lock the motor. More damage than checking and or replacing the timing chain and components.

Car over heats within 30 min. after starting

Thermostat is bad or the head gasket is blown, Test on cold engine, first remove radiator cap, start engine and observe coolant in radiator, you should not see any air bubbles being produced by the engine as it warms up, some coolant may slosh out so locate a drain pan under car to catch any overflow, keep pets away from coolant!
If air bubbles are present the head gasket is suspect, further testing with a cooling sytem pressure checker is required to confirm the diagnosis. I had a 22RE in a 94 Toyota Pickup that had a warped block causing a blown head gasket. Not a cheap repair if it is.

Bad thermostats do not let the coolant into the radiator hence the engine will be hot but the radiator will feel cold when running.

Be careful with radiator caps, never remove one while the engine is hot, scalding is a most unpleasant experience.

I have a 1994 toyota truck with a 22re engine, and the problem is a fluctuating idle with the a/c on or off.

I would suggest idling your high idle speed up a quarter turn while air conditioner is on full .

1988 toyota 22re truck will crank and run perfect until you turn the engine off then it takes about a hour before it starts again engine just turns over.

First step, see what is missing when it wont start, fuel, or spark. Is it carburated? or fuel injected. (22re should be injected.)

Radiator keeps over pressuring out of cap

I hate to tell you but most likely your head gasket is blown. But first have your 13 psi cap pressure tested. If the head gasket has blown out in between the cylinder and the water passage , engine compression will enter your coolant and over pressurize the cooling system. This could be caused by a pin hole in the head gasket and that is all. also make sure your head is not warped. The 22re has a cast iron block and aluminum head causing the head to expand at a different rate than the block. causing the gasket to wear and leak. Good luck.
