1993 Toyota Camry V6: Coolant Overheating Problem.

I have a 1993 Toyota Camry V6 with 198,000 miles. The car was running well with good maintenance until few months earlier smoke was coming out from the engine. I changed valve cover gaskets. The smoke stopped but the engine started overheating after 20-25 minutes of driving. The coolant starts boiling and comes out of the resorvoir tank vent.

Per mechanics suggestions, I changed one item after another like the radiator, hoses, thermostat, water pump, timing belt, radiator fan and the hydraulic motor. But still the same problem. It's not the head gasket, because there is no white smoke from the exhaust nor any coolant leakage.

The radiator fan speed is much slower than like an electric fan. Is it because of hydraulically operated? I could stop the fan by my finger. Is it normal?

Please help me. What could be the cause of overheating? Thanks.

If the fan is still free spinning when it's in overheat, the fan is bad. Change it.

1993 toyota camry v6 car bucking in gear


Shawn, I would start by using a good injector cleaner thru the fuel system. Does it run smooth at all, like when cruising? You need to use the good stuff, the $1.00 a bottle junk won't help but it does sound as though you have a fuel issue, could be a bad injector itself on a car of that age.

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!

Have you tried replacing the overflowtank top. This can cause your problem. A lot of people don't realize this. It gets worn and can;t hold the pressure of coolant. Change it out $8 and let us know.

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.

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.
