    I new thermostat should undoubtedly open, have yo installed it in the correct way. to check the thermostat drop it into a cup of boiling water and it will pop open.

    im likely to think its another problem, water pump, blocked radiator.

    can you explain what exactly is happening, how long your running the car for, can you see water circulate in the radiator when it heats up?

If fans come on with the ignition, try your fan switch ;-)

It's possible that you put the thermostat in backwards.

I have a 1995 Toyota with brand new thermostat, new radiator, and new fan switch.thermostat not opening, what do I do?


It is possible that there is no coolant on the engine side of the thermostat. Sometimes there is an air lock that will not let the coolant reach the thermostat on the engine side. It may open from the coolant heat if the engine is run long enough, but you have to watch the engine temperature, or you might overheat it.

Fan blower stays on after i shut car off i unplug the wire for it so it does shut off and when i need air i plug it back it and my radio stays on after i shut car off and take key out...my radio is...


Some cars are designed to have the fan run for a few minutes after you turn the car off. But if doesn't stop until the battery drains, then it might be a faulty switch or temperature sensor.

Or, if the fan stays running when the engine and radiator are cool you have a very cheap problem: The fan thermostat is stuck closed. A new thermostat will fix the problem--the hardest part of replacing it is finding it. Follow the wires from the fan to the switch--it is usually on the bottom tank of the radiator. Drain the radiator first and save the coolant to put back in after you replace the thermostat. NEVER OPEN A HOT RADIATOR.

If that wasn't it then check the following:
  • Check to see that your coolant level is correct. Top up as necessary.
  • Lay your hand on the radiator (with the engine off) and feel if it is as hot at the top as it is at the bottom. If not, your radiator may be clogged and need flushed or replaced. (Flushing is cheap. Replacing the radiator isn't)
  • Do you get heat from the heater? Leave it turned on high and see if your fan stays running the next time. If it takes care of the problem that could mean you have a kinked radiator hose.

Hope this helped (remember comment and rated this).

Car overheats


The problem of over-heating could be due to one or all of these defective parts:
(i) thermostat
(ii) radiator
(iii) fan relay
(iv) fan switch
(v) water temperature sensor.
In your case, I suspect that your radiator probably is clogged, so needing replacement.

To Replace the radiator:
a. allow the engine to cool.
b. place a suitable container under the radiator, and drain it out by turning backward the wing-nut under it.
c. open the radiator cap to allow atmospheric air to further push down the coolant.
d. with a piece of pliers, depress the top clamp holding the radiator hose. Do the same for the lower radiator hose.
e. remove from the bottom of the radiator and plug wth suitable bolts, the two transmission fluid rubber lines.
f. with a 10-mm socket and wrench remove the two bolts holding the radiator to the front frame.
g. depress the electrical plug at the bottom of the radiator. Remove its thermo switch at the bottom left hand side of the radiator. (replace with new if changing to new radiator) Also notice two rubber cups at bottom of radiator.
i, installation of the new radiator is reverse of removal. Refill radiator with new coolant.

To replace thermostat:
a. disconnect the negative terminal of the battery.
b. drain the coolant into a container, as
explanied above.
c. remove the upper radiator hose from the thermostat housing on the engine block.
d. remove the two bolts from the thermostat housing. Please note the way it was bolted to the engine. Clean its housing and seating areas.
e. fit a new o-ring to the thermostat, and replace with a new thermostat.
f. tighten its bolts to 14-12-foot pounds.
g. Replace the top and bottom hoses back.
i. refill with new coolant.

To replace the fan relays:
a. open the hood.
b. disconnect the negative battery terminal.
c. locate the meduim-size black plastic box on the driver's side fender. This is where the fan relays are. Look inside the cover of the medium-size plastic box to see the fan relay positions.
d. gently and firmly pull out each fan relay. Replace with new ones as needed.

To replace the water temperature sensor:
a. this is bolted to the top of thermostat housing.
b. unplug it from it location.
c. use a 14-mm deep socket to remove the temperature sensor. Replacement is reverse of removal.

I replced my radiator & thermostat and my car is still overheating. Toyota Camry 1992, help


water pump may be bad. or you may have a head gasket leaking. If it perks over out of the radiator before it really hot thats a sign you have a head gasket issue. A shop can tell you for sure with a smog machine. If you have gas in your water the smog machine will read it.

My radiator fans are constantly running while the car is on, the problem is in this cold weather the car temperature stays below the C even after driving for a while, is there a way to adjust the fans...


nope, sounds like the coolant temperature sonsors have failed. they should be fairly cheap and easy to change. i dont know exactly where they are, usually on the intake or near the thermostat housing.

How to change a thermostat in a 2001 toyota camry


This is better done when your engine is cold.
Park the car on a level fround.
Open the hood and remove the radiator cap.
Put a sizable container under the radiator and open its drain-plug.
(the drain-plug is by the radiator lower back wall).
Thermostat is in the inlet pipe held by three 10mm bolts that's attached to the engine block. (please note how it sitted)
Installation is reverse of removal. (replace o-ring around thermostat with a new one)

What can cause water to get very hot and be pushed out into the the coolant reservoir in a 1993 Toyota Camry LE v6?


Several things ... best guess, in order:
1. (very likely) Radiator fan is not blowing (turn on car and a/conditioner. When compressor kicks in, the radiator fan must blow). If it ims not blowing, the radiator fan motor may be burned out ($40).
2. Check / replace "cooling fan" fuse ($1) and / or "cooling fan" relay switch ($7).
3. Could be (not likely) thermostat sticking shut. Replace thermostat ($20)
4. Could be radiator hose collapse (not very likely) ($18)
5. Radiator clog or hose leak (possible)
6. Head gasket broken (not likely unless you don't fix current problem) ($150)

The more detail of the symptoms, the better we can assist you.

Hope this helps!
