Question about 1992 Toyota Paseo

1 Answer

Overheating This car keeps overheating, spewing antifreeze sometimes. Changed the thermostat first. Thinking head gasket but clear clean oil, no white smoke and still runs good. Water in radiator seems to be moving so I don't think it's a water pump. Before I pay for a new head gasket I'd like to eliminate any other problem it could be. Any ideas or experiences??

How do i fix and whats the problem


It's definitely the head gasket from what you described. If it is a v-8 like I think it is then its better that you replace both head gaskets or you'll be going back and doing the other one .

Head gasket or IM gasket? overheating, think there's antifreeze on spark plug threads. drained flushed bled system. new thermostat rad cap. still overheating.


Somebody been using tap water in their radiator? The vehicle is old enough to have a lot of accumulated rust and crud in the Radiator which, depending on relative water quality and location of water pump could over pressure the system and have it squirting into overflow. If the threads of the plug have antifreeze on them it's coming from the OUTSIDE not the inside.

What causes oil to get in antifreeze


Driving the truck without a thermostat won't necessarily hurt the engine. It will take longer to get heat and it will be sporadic because the coolant is always circulating. Oil in antifreeze could come from 2 places, transmission cooler in rad if you have an automatic. The lines inside will occasionally start leaking. The other is from the engine, usually a head gasket leaking. My suspicion is that you have a leaking head gasket. This would explain the over heating with oil in the coolant. Take it in and get a pressure test on the rad or a compression test on the engine. This should confirm or eliminate the head gasket. Hope this helps.

Overheating they say head gasket changed


If you have white smoke from the tailpipe, coolant in the engine oil, engine oil in the cooling system, that indicates a head gasket failure. However, the most definitive way to test is to have a hydrocarbon test done on the cooling system (checks for exhaust gasses that obviously don't belong in there).
If the system comes up clean, you still can have either a leaking intake gasket, partially obstructed radiator (many times flush will go around obstructions not through them), a malfunctioning electric fan or fan relay, or even an obstruction in front of the a/c condenser or between the condenser and radiator (leaves, plastic bags etc) Don't forget though even if the cause is other than a gasket, if repeatedly or severely overheated the head gaskets can also fail. That is why complete testing is very important.
good luck

2005 chevy equinox overheating.. we changed the thermostat, still overheating. and now there is gray/white smoke from exhaust???


sounds like you have a blown head gasket.
be sure engine is cold, open water tank be sure it is full than start car with tank open see if you see bubbles in the tank. If so possible head gasket blown.

98 crv still overheating


I hate to be the one who tells you but,if your radiator cores arent blocked as you said you have your radiator fixxed,its a head gasket,antifreeze is leaking by the head gasket and going into the piston chamber when the piston goes up it pushes the fluid back into the radiator,check your oil distick for a milky white look,antifreeze in the oil,if your car starts to have white smoke its antifreeze getting into the exaust ports either way head gasket
