There are a lot of things that can cause overheating.
Most of the common causes you have replaced already.
I would suspect that either the cooling fan is not runing or runinng at the correct RPM. If not, then determine if the fan is getting power using a test light or multimeter also check the relay.
Make sure the front of your car is not restricted in any way, and the fins of your rad isn't plugged with bugs, or dirt
Let me know.

Toyota corolla 1993 water pump leaking and steam coming from top of radiator. added chem and weld solution to radiator recently

Since the water pump is leaking there is low action of the water pump to circulate the water into the engine jackets and the radiator.
So you need to remove and overhaul or replace the water pump, replace the gasket, check the radiator for leaks with high pressure test, replace with a good cap and the fault of heating and steaming will be gone. Also check the timing of the engine, do a tune up.

I have a toyota corolla 1986 4 door salon, the water is'nt circulating, the water pump is'nt leaking in fact their is no leakage, but my car overheats, the belts are working - does anyone have any ideas?...

If there is heat coming out of the vents than you know the water pump is working. This would leave the thermostat as a likely cause of the overheating. Especially if the radiator never gets hot.

My 1990 toyota corolla is getting hot really fast - i fill radiator up and after 5-10 min the water has evaporated - it appears to be leaking somewhere around the right side of engine (facing front of car)...

Well there are only 3 things that could have gone wrong.

1. Radiator Leak - this means the radiator has developed a hole with via corrosion of the metal parts of simply integrity failure of the plastic parts of the radiator.
2. Hose leak - this could be a hole in 1 of 2 hoses that connects the engine to the radiator. Or it can also be a leak where the hose connects to the radiator (clamp Failure).
3. Water Pump breakdown - this is where the gasket in the water pump has failed and is leaking out the water rather than pumping it.

All the problems above has different ways of diagnosing. but we can probably narrow it down.

1. if the leak is near the radiator then it could be a hose connection, hose breakage or Radiator hole.

2. if the leak is nearer the engine then check the other end of the hose and if its not there then it could only be the water pump is leaking. You can check this if there are water stains on the water pump. The water pump on a 1990 corolla is mechanical turned also by a fan belt. Look for a pulley that has a hose connected to the radiator and that would be the water pump.

1998 Toyota Corolla LE appears to be overheatingf - how can i fix this?

A few things to check before you know why it is overheating. First, coolant? Got it? Or are you running plain water? Check for oil floating on the top of the radiator. Check for steam coming out the exhaust, Check for water in the oil by checking the oil level. If it is overfull. Lastly, if you have any of these symptoms, get a radiator shop to do a compression check, you might have a bad head gasket, they will tell you exactly what piston it is. And they can give you a price on repair. Usually $1200. We found it cheaper to replace the engine that to fix the gaskets. Hope this helps.

My 1998 corolla has been overheating recently. I checked and the radiator is not leaking but my coolant runs out pretty quickly. I sent it for an inspection and no problems were found except that the cap...

yes you could change them both yourself if you have the tools,,,and it could be a blowen head gasket or a leaking water hose,,or water pump,,,
first get a new cap,,the cap holds the presher in the rad so the water dont boile up so easly the thermostst may be ok,,,

Car's overheating

Check to see if your radiator fans are working. If you have A/C just turn it on and both fans WILL come on unless there is a problem ie: bad fuse(s), relay(s), or motor(s). I don't mean to scare you, but, someone "could" have a pretty bad head gasket leak and still not see fluid come out of the exhaust. If the fans are both working, it could be any number of things from, a faulty coolant temp sensor, a faulty dash gauge, possible air bubble in the cooling system. Another easy check is coolant consumption, if you are leaking coolant into the cylinder while engine is running and/or into the crank case. Just check to see if your coolant level is going down and/or your oil level isn't growing because of coolant filling up your crank case. Hope this info helps...(subytech)...
