No, but why? How do you know it needs to be replaced? At that age, it's unlikely to be broken. "Don't fix it if it ain't broke"

    I am hopeful that it is because my other only option would be to guess if the head were cracked the car qould overheat.

  • gbob59 Apr 13, 2015

    There are many reasons for overheating besides a faulty thermostat (if it is faulty) Is it "boiling over"? It's possible the temp gauge is faulty. A bad electric fan, or bad coolant pump (water pump) could cause problems. Head gasket diagnosis is buy bubbling from the fill tank with cap off and engine running.

SOURCE: How difficult to replace 1995 Toyota Corolla radiator/thermostat

You can replace the radiator yourself, but why do you need to? The thermostat is on the engine. Follow the large hose that goes to the engine block....not the water pump. The thermostat is under that or sits on the top of the engine....looking for a pic for you!

I believe it is on the water pump which is in the front of the 3.0 engine at the end of the bottom radiator hose.

Toyota doesn't publish instructions for that. Its checked and installed for free as a courtesy on an oil and filter replacement, at good repair shops. You took it apart, I'm sure you can figure it out. People that aren't auto mechanics, think everything's so simple.

What is the toyota number for the cabin air


The cabin air filter is actually pretty easy to change. Here are the steps:
  1. Set the air conditioning system to Recirculation. The case for the cabin air cannot be removed with the system in the Outside Air mode.
  2. Turn the engine off.
  3. Open the Glove Compartment
  4. unclip the damper rod on the ride side of the glove compartment. To unclip it usually it is just a squeeze tab but sometimes it is a phillips head screwdriver.
  5. The glove compartment now must be squeezed together at the rear to allow the tabs to be released. Just let the glove compartment hang down.
  6. Through the glove compartment opening, locate the filter cover and remove.
  7. Remove dirty filter and replace with the new and reverse steps 1-5 to put it back together.
Shouldnt take to long usually takes me about 5 minutes to change it.

As for the toyota cabin air number im not to sure on that but you can go to any parts store and pick up an aftermarket cabin air which will save you a bit of money, same quality..
