Question about 1998 Toyota Corolla
I have been teying to get my question answer but have not been successfull. I would like to cancell my membership since I can not get through and ask the experts.
I would definitely think that your water pump was still working since you said that the temperature comes back down to normal when you come to a stop. If it wasnt working it would heat up even more since there was no air over or water moving through the radiator. One way you can check to see if the water pump is working though is by removing the ratiator cap, when the engine is COLD, and starting the car up and waiting for the pump to kick on. Obviously you will have to wait for the egine to warm up, you can speed this up by turning on your A/C, and once it is warm and the pump kicks on you will actually be able to see the coolant moving inside the radiator. If the car gets up to normal temp and then goes higher while you are waiting to see this coolant movement your pump is probably bad. If you see the coolant move, you need to replace your radiator. You probably want someone to help you do this, one person in the car, one outside. Just make sure you are careful when looking into the radiator, wear some safety goggles. Let me know if you have any further questions and thanks again for using FixYa!
