Question about Toyota Camry

Open Question

My Camry 300 SEi V6, engine coolant drains out after every top up.

Everytime I top up engine coolant, and after driving for about 4km when I stop the coolant spills out through a relief pipe. This goes on until coolant level in at a minimum mark. Every few days I have to top up. This is unusual to top up so often. I have replaced both radiator caps with new ones but the problem persists. Please help.

    Hi M Stephen Bidi, how is the head gasket on the engine ?
    if it is blown it could be passing exhaust pressure into the cooling system and causing pressure build up in cooling system ?

SOURCE: 1993 V6 camry engine over heats and check engine light comes on

The thermostat housing is located by grabbing the upper radiator hose, and following it back to the engine block.
The housing that the hose is connected to is the thermostat housing.
Changing the thermostat will fix your problem!

SOURCE: 1993 Toyota Camry V6: Engine Overheating Prob

Yes if it hydraulically operated it could be because the pump for the fan is bad. If I am not mistaken the fan is run off of the power steering pump correct. check and make sure the pump is working correctly. I have not seen a hydraulic motor on a car I know they put them on a lot of diesel trucks like humvees and some Chevy diesels but not on a car. Most are usually electrical. I know on humvees with a hydraulic fan they have a fan controller check this and make sure it is working right you can unplug the controller and the fan should stay ingaged and turn faster.

Another item worth checking on '92-95 V6 Camry's is the power steering fluid. The radiator fan is hydraulic and runs off the power steering fluid and power steering pump. If your fluid level is low, it might not have affected your steering, but it could have prevented the fan from coming on when necessary.

Where is the switch to the fans located

You mean the radiator fans? There is no simple switch. They can be either hydraulic or electric drive, and are controlled by the engine coolant computer and coolant temp sender, supplied by a 15A fuse. See here p 345

Where is the power steering temperature sensor on 1993 Toyota Camry v6

On some Camrys the radiator fan is run by hydraulic pressure from the power steering pump. I think the sensor you mention is the engine coolant temperature sensor, which is in the circuit which operates the fan when the engine becomes hot. If this fails the engine will overheat, yes. The fan does not cool the hydraulic fluid from the pump.

If your power steering fluid gets low the same thing can happen, but you would notice immediately as the steering would become intermittently harder.

Where is the petcock valve located on the radiator on 1993 toyota camry V6?

There are no petcock valve on toyota camry.
What its a plain radiator cap that has a valve in it, pressure can be activated at certain point and the coolant goes through the coolant reservoir.
You mean the radiator drain plug? you would see that plug underneathe that radiator assembly, wing nut type plastic made, can be loosen by hand or a pair of pliers!
Hope that was your looking for!

93 toyota camry

it means that you have probably cracked the engine block and the reason it did this is because you lost your cooling fan which is supposed to click on and off t keep the motor from over heating. replacing your cooling fan motor circuit relay could have prevented this. check your ecm brain computer.

Camry 3 litre v6 engine: Coolant in radiator bubbling profusely.

If there is no white smoke billowing out of the tailpipe, I would not remove the heads. If you had bad heads or head gaskets, there would be a whole lot of white smoke pouring out of the tailpipe. Coolant bubbling into the overflow indicates poor coolant circulation...You may just have a seized thermostat, partially clogged radiator or malfunction cooling fans. Try removing the thermostat and running it. If the bubbling stops, you do not have a cylinder head issue.
