If you have an auto box then the transmission oil cooler is leaking into the radiator and the fix for that is a new radiator.. Have a compression test done to check for the gasket . If the oil is black then you may have a warped head and engine oil is passing the gasket to a water jacket hole.

My toyota townace regurgitates the coolant when I turn it off


It is possible that there is an air lock in the cooling system and this is allowing the coolant to hit the hot cylinder walls when the engine is switched off which immediately boils off. It is possible that there is a head gasket problem coming on as well so have a compression test done to check for gasket/ cracked head faults.

The only way pressure can build up in the radiator is for combustion gasses to leak into the cooling system. This is usualy from a blown head gasket, a cracked cylinder head or a porous block. These things should have been checked for when the engine was rebuilt. Assuming it was done by an engine reconditioning service.

How many quarts of oil does a Corolla Dx hold at oil change?


4 quarts, 5 with filter change according to the book. Rule of thumb, buy 5 and once you drain and replace the filter, start by putting 3 and a half quarts in and check the level. If it's between the marks start the motor and run for 5 minutes then let it sit for 5 minutes and recheck the level. Top off half a quart at a time till you get the oil level between the full and add marks.

Where do you refill the oil in a Toyota Townace


Dipstick, oil filler , filter etc are under the passengers front seat.
If you lift the carpet immediately in front of the seat, you will see a pair of clips holding down the seat, unlatch them and lift the seat ( in some models they hide a clip in the centre console).
The brake fluid is under a cover in the dash.

Overheating


Having the radiator rodded is a good move. Retest. If it has an electric radiator fan check temp sensors. If the fan has a clutch it may need to be replaced if its slipping with the engine hot. Check bellts. Its likely a fan air flow issue if the engine overheats when the care is not moving or is moving slowly. If the engine overheats only with AC on that narrows it down. Write back if that's the case. Lots of things can cause this. Antifreeze and a good radiator cap discourages boiling. Pressure in the radiator raises the boiling point but it can't build up pressure if the cap is bad. Antifreeze also raises the boiling point. If actual boiling happens in the engine then steam builds up in critical places and drives the collant out of the block making the engine even hotter than it already is. Replace the cap. Check the antifreeze.
