Did you replace the thermostat? The water pump may not be moving the required amount of water to properly cool the engine. You can also have a blown head gasket.

My 96 toyota Avalon is overheating and the heat has stopped working? Replaced the radiator and still overheating


Did you also change the thermostat while you were doing the rad? The thermostat is the most common cause of engine overheating, it should be changed every couple years whether it is acting up or not.

My 1996 toyota avalon is overheating. There are no leaks, thermostat is new, radiator is new and has been flushed, changed the fan relay. Don't know why its overheating.


Is the fan coming on? If not, possible lower radiator fan switch/sensor? No leaks... So overflow tanks level stays stable? How do you know it is overheating? Elevated temp guage? Engine smells overheated? Both? We need more info.

No water in radiator, smoke in vents


Doesn't sound good. I think you might have cooked the engine. But just in case, get some coolant back in there of some kind, water just for the test, and see if you can get it running again, check the exhaust pipe for steam. The check the oil for water and the water for oil floating on the top. If you have any of these signs, the head gasket has blown out and needs to be fixed, You can get it to a radiator shop for a compression check, will tell you everything. Even how much to fix it. But only if it is not seized up. Then, you will need a new motor or a new car. Hope this helps.

1995 toyota avalon, overheating,just changed s/belt compressor stop working, now it runs hot. is this now a prblm with water pump or first thermostat?


I do not see a good connection between the serpentine belt and the engine overheating suddenly.

Perhaps you have a lot of burnt belt rubber on the water pump pulley?

Is the upper radiator hose hot? If so the stat is opening. If you start the car cold with the radiator cap off you can watch for coolant starting to flow and make sure the stat works...if the flow is low you have either a blocked stat or poor belt grip at the waterpump. Have you flushed the radiator recently? After 15+ years your car could be ready for a cleaning.

Where is the thermostat on a 1996 Avalon?


follow the upper radiator hose away from the radiator toward the motor and that is where you will usually find the thermostat housing.
