Overheating I Have 2001 toyota camry. We found that the radiator had a leak. We sealed it and replaced coolant and water. When we attempted to take the car for a ride the thermostat shot up to Hot could it be a leak or a thermostat problem

    Could be either but I can't see it from here... try LOOKING at it!!!! A leak looks just like a leak...any time you do system work after an overheat it is best to change the t stat!

Sounds like a leaking head gasket. The head gasket can allow coolant to leak into the cylinders, and compression to leak into the cooling system.

Coolant boiling in resevoir.


It can be faulty coolant temperature sensor.Its not sensing exact coolant heat temperature so its overheating then required level.

Get the coolant pressure tested, its definitely leaking coolant. You will need to get the coolant running line.


Pressure test will help you to know from where exactly coolant/refrigerant is getting leaked.

I have a 2001 Toyota Camry that is overheating. I can smell burnt antifreeze. The radiator is full of antifreeze, but the reserve tank drains quickly. It appears there is no circulation. There is a small...


The overheating could be a stuck thermostat, or a failed water pump among other things. If you are loosing coolant faster than the leak on the hose, you may be burning it out the exhaust pipe. Which would point to engine problems.
If the temp gauge is not showing the engine is hot, and the fan is not coming on, what you are smelling may only be the drip blowing onto the exhaust pipe. The engine may not be running hot.
A mechanic would use an infered thermometer or a scanner to "read" the engine temp to verify it is overheating.
There is a chance the system is not actually full and has air pockets in it which would need to be bled out.

Radiator toyota camry 1998 v6


You may have

- a coolant leak somewhere, comes out when the engine heats up and pressurises the radiator. Camrys do develop a crack in the plastic radiator top tank, which can be hard to see if on a seam. Another place which leaks is under the intake manifold, which is not visible. There is a test, called a "leak-down" test

- thermostat stuck closed, preventing coolant circulation

- a leak through a head gasket from a combustion chamber to the coolant jacket. This will quickly cause overheating, and sometimes causes white bubbles in the radiator neck, like dry ice. There is a test kit available for gases in the coolant.

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!

Frequently loss the coolant and temperature increase. Heater blow cool air instead hot air


You are losing coolant if you have a coolant pressure tester follow the directions and use it. If you don't when the car is cool use a 50/50 solutuion of water and coolant fill system and check all the listed items carefully with a flash light and look for leaks. It is either a bad hose, cap, water pump or radiator. Your coolant circulates through the dash and the blower blows throught the heater core to produce heat. No coolant no heat. I would also check the passanger side floor for anti freeze or moisture could be a leaking heater core also.
