SOURCE: 1997 Toyota Avalon over-heating problem due to low coolant level

Could be buring coolant from headgasket leak. thats the only other way coolant can leave your engine besides a leak.

Side note:
I strongly reccomend in the future not to use ne kind of coolant stop-leak stuff. you have small passages coolant needs to go through and that stuff also cloggs up those areas. alot of people dont think that far ahead. so alittle info for the future for you. it also cloggs up your heatercore and radiator. and will cause faster corrosion in those areas.

My toyota highlander heats up past red, goes back to midpoint within 30 seconds?

It sounds like you very likely have an air pocket trapped in your coolant system.You might also want to check for signs of coolant seepage anywhere on the motor/trans.My best advice would be to remove the cap when cold and top off your coolant, then perform a pressure test on the vehicle to see if you're loosing any coolant anywhere.I hope I could help, Rate me accordingly, Thanks!!

Vw golf 2001. coolant system not working

Your most probable cause for this is because your water valve needs replacement or repairing. Not all cars have a water valve that brings the heated coolant into the heater core unit.

Essentially, the heated coolant is brought from the engine block directly, into a mini radiator that has a fan to blow heated air into your vehicles cabin.

If that valve were clogged, or the switch itself to open up the water valve that blocks the coolant from going into the heater core unit, then you wont be able to get heat from the vents.

ALSO, another reason why your car might also be overheating as well, is you need to check your coolant levels as well to make sure it is fully filled up, if it is, then your thermostat might also need replacement.

good luck with your problem.

2001 Toyota highlander(4cyl),turns over,won't start afer few spins.Then,it will finally start.Has always started(fired)immediately- pumped gas a couple of times and it will finally start-runs fine-any...

Your cold start valve is not opening to assist the firing. It function is to provide extra fuel to ignite the all combustion chambers easily. When the engine doesn't have this extra fuel from the cold start valve, it will take a few times to get it going. The cold start valve is turned on at the time of starting only if the ECM get the signal from coolant temperature sensor saying it is at a preset level. When the sensor is bad, it can give a wrong value so ECM think that temperature is hot so not turning the Cold start valve. Replace this coolant sensor first, then the next thing is to check out the cold start valve.

Heating problem

I can't solve your problem, but since so many people who own a highlander are have the same types of problems, it seems to me that Toyota should be checking into this problem.

What do you think?
I am going to call my dealer today.
