Question about Cars & Trucks
Plugged heater core is possible.It's the lowest spot in the cooling system(almost). Flush out the core with a garden hose:carefully.
Don't snap the heater core tubes when removing the heater core hoses. May be easier to follow where the heater hoses go on the engine to flush it.
There will be a "bubble" in the system after you do this.
Drive the car really hard to purge the bubble and check coolant,again when cooled off. Also helps to park it uphill and rev the engine to force the bubble forward,into the radiator.

sounds like the thermostat is not functioning correctly? either that or not in at all? thus making the water which would normally warm up quickly, warm up extremely slowly and on really cold days not at all? with a 2.6 engine your car shoudl warm up in record time?

check with your local Toyota dealer in the parts department and make sure you give them the liter of both engines and they can give you the correct answer and you can also try autozone.com to see if they have your car listed for diagrams pictures and step by step instructions if your car is not listed then try your local library they have all the car manuals and even copy them for you
