Question about 2000 Toyota Celica

Coolant reservoir low

I have a 03 celica and topped up the coolant a week ago and it is low again. i know where the coolant is coming from. on the top of the reservoir there is a run off hose and the coolant over time seems to be coming from there like a dripping tape, can anyone explain this, or tell me if this is normal? a toyota mechanic didn't seem too bothered by it, and i get my car serviced at this dealership.

IT is normal to lose a little coolant over time, but when you replace it, use a mixture of the appropriate coolant with a mixture of DISTILLED water. If you continue to lose coolant, you may have a leak in the system that can be tested for by placing it under pressure. The radiator cap can be a problem.

2000 mitsubishi eclipse coolant leak and car smoking.? My coolant reservoir has been dry for several weeks now. Stupid on my part I know, but it's the third time it has gone dry in the past three


You did not say if it is a 4 cyl or a V6, but generally the power steering pump is belt driven, and the V6 water pump is driven by the timing belt.
The pump in question could be the power steering pump. Or it could be the 4 cyl water pump.
You might be able to take a photo of it and post it here to make sure, or check an auto parts store for a visual.
As for the coolant leak, is the pump smoking, or leaking ?
You can't really see the V6 water pump without removing some parts from the side of the engine.
Do you know where the power steering system is leaking ?
Does the engine run rough after you fill up the radiator ?

I have a 1999 Audi A4 Avant, I keep having to top up the water reservoir, what could the problem be?


If you are talking about the reservoir for the radiator, the radiator pulls coolant in from the tank when it is low.
If you are adding coolant - water every week and there are no external leaks, the engine is burning the coolant out the exhaust pipe.
Usually a leaking head gasket - intake gasket or cracked head.

Replaced the thermostat 3 days ago . about 3 hours ago as i was driving the light came back on


What light? low coolant? did you check the reservoir again as it was possible that the system had not purged properly and sucked the reservoir lower which activated low coolant.

the problem could be as simple as a faulty radiator cap from your description the water that is expelled when it gets hot is not being drawn back as the radiator cools down
could be a leak in the reservoir hose
I am thinking that the low coolant sensor in the top of the radiator tank is getting an air space and that is what is activating the light
I don't think it was head gasket problem as you would be overheating or loosing coolant within days not weeks I would go to an accredited radiator specialist shop and have a pressure test done for leaks in the system including the water pump leaking when running
I am saying that the vacuum created as the coolant cools down is not as good as it should be to draw water back from the reservoir to keep the radiator full to the cap

Double check coolant to make sure you don't have oil floating on top. It's either an exterior leak, which would mean head gasket or valve cover gasket or it's an internal leak which would also mean head gasket. It it was burning that much oil in that a time, it would run poorly and you'd most likely get a check engine light.

If it isn't over heating, then the coolant light means it's low on coolant, just add some to it, but don't fill it to the top.
As far as the blower, if the fuse is good , have the relay switch checked, or the blower motor it's self might be no good.

2000 Toyota Celica coolant reservior empty


I hate to tell you this but its possible...

You have a leak. Look around on the driveway and try to determine if you have an external leak as opposed to an internal leak. If you see no coolant on the ground, suspect a blown head gasket. Do not continue to drive this car in this condition. If it does indeed have a blown head gasket, serious engine damage will occur.

Check your exhaust for white smoke. Chances are good you have a blown head gasket and coolant is leaking into the engines combustion chambers and is essentially burning off. Also check your oil, if it looks like caf mocha, this will confirm coolant is leaking into the oil via the blown head gasket
