If you can find a radiator shop that will replace just the top part and if you can get the part it cam be done
however it cracks because the plastic has become unstable from age and heat so most radiator shops will advise to save time and money and replace the radiator with a new unit.

How do you replace a 1998 toyota avalon xl exterior door handle?


You have to remove the inner door panel to access the exterior handle's mounting nuts. Once you have the panel off, there will be a plastic film, or water shield, that you can peel off far enough to reach the handle ( when done, reseal the plastic with a little adhesive).. The handle is usually held in place by just two nuts which you remove, then disconnect the latch rod from the handle, and pull the old handle off. Attach the rod to the new handle, tighten the attaching nuts, and put everything back together. Getting the door panel off is the hardest part of this job.
Good luck.

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.

Starter problems


You do not replace the solenoid, you just have to replace the affected parts. What you need to replace are the 2 copper contacts, and the solenoid plunger. After removing the starter, remove the 3 8 mm bolts at the top of the solenoid housing. Remove the metal cap, and extract the solenoid plunger. Loosen & discard the 2 burnt contacts, and reassemble, refit a new plunger and bolt it all back together. Get the contacts and the solenoid plunger at a Toyota dealer.
