At 55 MPH we can assume you have ample airflow across the radiator, so proper antifreeze circulation 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 going to require, and with a sock in your mouth you are going to have to breath extra hard to maintain the proper amount of air to keep you going. At 55MPH the water pump is pumping a large amount of hot antifreeze throughout the cooling system.

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...

Horrible engine knock in 1995 toyota celica


Check for oil pressure.Check the compression in each cylinder.
Yank the valve cover to see if the camshaft is actually turning during cranking mode,only.
Disable the fuel pump or disable the spark(fuel disable preferred)
The engine may have "eaten" something it shouldn't.
A valve may be broken off inside the cylinder head.
Usually an exhaust valve.

Toyota celica vvti 2000


The first thing is to have the computer scanned for codes. the check engine light should also be on with the engine idle too high.Scanning for codes is the best first step in finding the problem.
this could be caused by a vacuum leak or bad throtle postion sensor or mass air flow sensor and more.Go to an auto zone or other auto parts store ,they will scan the codes and give you a print out of the codes. get me the codes and i will try to help you solve this problem.

1996 Toyota Celica. Oil warning light came on two weeks ago. Topped up immediately with 2L. Have driven the car minimally since. Today the warning light came on again. A kind neighbour checked it and...


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.

Celica oil consumption


Try cleaning your engine with an engine flush such as AMSOIL engine flush and then draining your oil once the flush is complete. It will clean the interior of the engine and drain out the contaminants. Once this has been perfomed replace the old oil with completely synthetic AMSOIL or Mobil 1. These oils are know for there ability to clean an engine and to reduce the chances of sludge formation in toyota engines. This is a good place to start before you go spending thousands on a new engine!!
