    Hi, thanks for the fast response. The car only has 1 fan which is on all the time as soon as you start the car. Unfurtnetly the rad doesnt have a bleed point so i will jack it up to get the air out. Will let you know what the outcome is. Thanks.

Thermostat, coolant sensor, fan relay etc. First check the coolant level, check for leaks. Check if the fans are on when the engine is hot, about to over heat. If equipped with two fans they both should be on. If its all good have the system flushed and a new thermostat installed. If you want to change the thermostat yourself follow the big hoses that are attached to the radiator. Look at each where they attach to the engine. It should be apparent where the thermostat is at the end of the hose. After replacing the thermostat if you don't top off the coolant and there is air in the system the car will over-heat with the new thermostat. Some times radiators have air bleed valves on top. If not then jack up the car a little. Jack it up in the side the radiator cap is at so the air can work its way out. To fill it add coolant when the car is cold, off, and jacked up. Leave the cap off and start the car this is so the thermostat opens and the coolant flows. Continue to add coolant until it over-flows close or put the cap on. Put coolant in the over flow reservoir fill it to the low level. If the radiator has the air valve you don't need to jack the car. If you did it right the car should not over heat and the heater should be working.

Hi Kiwi, Have a look for oil leaking onto the exhaust system, particularly onto the exhaust manifold. I'm fairly sure that you'll spot something from there. Regards John

How to install a thermostat in a 1994 toyota pick-up 4WD, V6 engine?


Locate the top radiator hose. Follow the hose to the housing that is bolted to the engine. Remove the bolts and the thermostat will be revealed. Since the thermostat is directional, notice how it sits in the housing, or in the water jacket inlet. This is exactly how the replacement should go back. Before installing, make sure that both surfaces are clean and dry, (the housing and the inlet). If a gasket is required, make sure you have one. If not, some silicone gasket is ok.

THE NORMAL LOCATION FOR A THERMOSTAT IS AT THE END OF THE TOP RADIATOR HOSE ON THE TOP OF THE ENGINE. THERE SHOULD BE A ROUND BALL SHAPED HOUSING HELD IN PLACE WITH TWO OR THREE BOLTS. UNDER THIS HOUSING, YOU WILL FIND THE THERMOSTAT. HOPE THIS HELPS. THANKS FOR AN HONEST RATING AND FOR USING FIX-YA. GOOD LUCK. PLEASE KEEP ME POSTED.
