Question about Toyota Celica
At 55 MPH we can assume
you have ample airflow across the radiator, so proper antifreeze
is the thing to inspect. I compare overheating at 55MPH to jogging
with a sock
in your mouth. The faster and longer you jog, the more air you are
require, and with a sock in your mouth you are going to have to breath
hard to maintain the proper amount of air to keep you going. At 55MPH
water pump is pumping a large amount of hot antifreeze throughout the
If there is a restriction in the system like a kinked radiator hose, a restricted radiator, or a stuck thermostat, it will produce the same affect as the sock in the mouth scenario. Rust and water calcification can accumulate in the radiator and drastically reduce the flow of coolant at high speeds. Removing the radiator from the vehicle for disassembly and cleaning or radiator replacement are the only two real cures for a clogged radiator.
check for any leaks because of which the engine oil is emptied so quickly...
