Next to do is to have a compression test done to check for a head gasket or cracked head problem. IF you have a viscous fan hub attached to the fan then replace that if the overheating occurs at low road speed with high engine rpm or stopped at lights and idling. It may appear to be working when you look at it but it will not drive hard enough to pull air through the radiator when needed.

yes it can mix, also check the timing cover for rubs from the timing chain. this is the common problem with 22r. many mechanics will tell you its the block but they are just trying to make money.

SOURCE: coolant leaking

Hello Kasalama :

Is it possible to wash off the engine while protecting the distribuutor and other electronics so we can start with a clean and dry engine ? . * Make sure that your radiator is full and that the Radiator/ Coolant overflow reservoir is at the proper level . * I would put a large piece of cardboard on the floor and along with a bright flash light or shop light use it to guide you where the leak s coming from .

If that is not helpful , I would perform a pressure check on the cooling system . The pressure check can be performed as a diagnostic tool . Put the truck in park and apply the parking brake . Attach the pressure diapham and Start the engine . You will have to manually pump it to a specified pressure as indicated on the gauge/ manometer .

The pressure diaphram usally attaches where the " radiator cap " is . Applying pressure can show leaking hoses, pipes and leaks in the radiator or fittings .

Be mindful that you can also have a leaking Intake manifold Gasket .

I hope that this info has been of help to you .

The fluid coupling in the cooling fan may have failed. If so, a new fan clutch is appropriate for you.

Thanks for choosing FixYa and welcome to the site. Have you checked to see if it is a coolant sensor? Have you checked to make sure the fans are coming on? Are you leaking coolant anywhere? Checked the cap?

Its over heating and ive changed the water pump clutch fan and themostat.


You may have a blown head gasket. They can leak outside the motor, inside the cylinders (causues white smoke), or into the block causing water in the oil (light brown color and or bubbles on the dipstick) or oil in the radiator. Hopefully you have none of those, so the next step is a radiator flush as you probably have something clogging up the radiator or thermostat. You have to drain the radiator and fill with clean water. Pull out the thermostat and leave it out for the flush. There are radiator flush products that I suggest highly. Run the truck to operating temp (about 20 min) with the heat on and dump the system by removing the bottom hose hose from the radiator, after the truck cools off. With the hose still off dump water through the radiator to clean it out fully. fill with water and let it run once again to clean the block, then reinstall new thermostat and anti-freeze. This should clean out any rust and stop leak that is causing your problems.

1990 toyota 4runner over heating imetiatly new thermostat heater will not blow hot air doese not leak antifreze only steams


Since you have a new thermostat installed and no heat and overheatingyou have one of two or a combination of problems. You either have a bad water pump or a clogged radiator. The radiator can be flow checked at a radiator shop, if it flow checks fine replace the water pump. The pump may not have play in it indicating it is bad, but the shaft inside cold be broken so that the fan turns and the pulley turns on the outside but not internally where it counts.
