Several things ... best guess, in order:
1. (very likely) Radiator fan is not blowing (turn on car and a/conditioner. When compressor kicks in, the radiator fan must blow). If it ims not blowing, the radiator fan motor may be burned out ($40).
2. Check / replace "cooling fan" fuse ($1) and / or "cooling fan" relay switch ($7).
3. Could be (not likely) thermostat sticking shut. Replace thermostat ($20)
4. Could be radiator hose collapse (not very likely) ($18)
5. Radiator clog or hose leak (possible)
6. Head gasket broken (not likely unless you don't fix current problem) ($150)

The more detail of the symptoms, the better we can assist you.

Hope this helps!

It may be normal for the coolant to return to the resivoir, especially during hot days. if your cluster/instrument panel temp gauge is at mid line(normal) there's nothing to worry about. if it's under the mid level or above(overheating) your thermostat may be faulty. time for replacement. Check your oil, make sure it's not a milky consistency. It should be just oil. if yours looks milky, you may have a cracked head/head gasket.

Could be...
Low coolant due to a leak
bad waterpump (Also make sure the belt that runs it is good)
bad thermostat
plugged radiator
fan not working to cool the radiator
or a head gasket leak.

Start by getting the coolant system pressure tested to see that it's not leaking. (Or verify that the coolant stays full)

SOURCE: i have a 1993 toyota camry le v6, that is not over

I'd remove the thermostat and run it. If the problem continues, it could be head gaskets, but, v6 head gaskets rarely fail. Also make sure that teh rad cap is good; have it pressure tested.

This could result from a thermostat which is stuck closed, or a failed coolant temp sensor not allowing the radiator fans to run when they should, but I think you have a blown head gasket. Overheating is a classic sign of combustion gases getting into the coolant. The pressure also forces it out of the overflow.


Warm up your engine a little, about half, and remove the radiator cap by putting a towel over it first. Then let the engine keep idling until hot while you look down the filler neck into the radiator......carefully.

If you see white bubbles like dry ice, that is a failed head gasket. If not, have a mechanic do a test for combustion gas in the coolant with a gadget like this

I have a 93 camry V6.the other day I thought my car had ran out of gas so I went got gas but then ten minutes later it acted like it again. I thought it was my O2 sensor but now when I push my gas it...


Sounds like it overheated and blew a head gasket or cracked a cylinder head. The causes could be a bad thermostat, non-funtioning cooling fan, coolant leak, clogged radiator or missing fins on the outside of it.
Check the oil dipstick to see if there's white milky sludge in the oil pan, if so the bearings may have been damaged also.

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


Hi,
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!

How do I replace a knock sensor for a 1992 toyota camry v6 le


First, I would like to mention that most knock sensor codes are not caused by the knock sensors, but a mechanical problem with the engine. The knock sensors cannot differentiate between noises caused by mechanical problems like a bad pulley bearing, bad motor mount, noisy alternator bearings, etc. and spark knock. knock sensor codes are set when the computer has retarded the timing as far as possible to compensate for ignition ping (Spark Knock) and the noise still exists.

With that said, here are the instructions.

Remove the Intake Chamber assembly.
Disconnect Injector connectors.
Disconnect the heater hose from the Intake Manifold.
Remove the 9 bolts. 2 nuts, 2 plate washers and Intake Manifold assembly.
Remove right hand engine mounting stay and water outlet.
Disconnect the following hoses and connectors:
Radiator inlet hose.
Engine coolant reservoir hose.
Engine Coolant Temperature Sensor connector.
Engine Coolant Temperature Switch connector.
Ground strap connector.

Remove the 3 bolts and right hand mounting stay.
Remove the wire band.
Disconnect the water bypass hose from the inlet housing.
Remove the 2 bolts, 2 nuts, 2 plate washers and water outlet.
Remove the 2 gaskets.
Disconnect the Knock Sensor connectors.
Remove the Knock Sensors.

These engines will overheat for many reasons. >>make sure there is no leaks at all, as air will cause the system to overheat while losing coolant at the same time. Depending if the radiator is original or after market, there may be TWO radiator caps (one on the engine and one on the radiator)- the one on the engine usually is faulty because of direct engine heat to the seal.>> On the thermostat housing, there is an O-ring at the end of the feeder pipe, usually leaks especially if the thermostat was replaced and not the O-ring. >>Check also the hydraulic driven radiator fan>>Check power steering fluid for proper levels first. unplug the switch atop the powersteering pump, start engine, rev to 2000 rpm (fan should increase in speed-you should hear it) if not it may be faulty.>> Check system for proper flow- With engine cold, remove the engine side radiator cap and rev the engine(1000rpm) slightly, notice if the coolant is flowing. If not, possible faulty pump, or clogged radiator. Hopefully this helps

The timing belt runs the water pump. If the pump bearing is bad, yes it could cause the timing belt to jump or even strip some of the teeth from the belt.
