Hi, what I would do is when the motor is cool, grasp both radiator hoses and squeeze them together to see hose easy they are to close off or together. What happens is the internal spring gets weak and rusted apart, and as you are driving the auto, the hoses will get hot and actually collapes causing no water to cool the motor and it will over heat. If they seems to be fine, take a look at the water pump on the front of the motor and see if it has any water leaks from the small hole at the bottom of it. When this happens, the pump is failing and will start to drip water. You should have a mixture of anti-freeze, 50/50. The pump will sometimes make a grinding or loud noise when its loosing its bearings. If the pump is good, you have replaced radiator and thermostat, you must have a crack or partly blown head gasket. This is all that's left in the cooling system. You might want to take it to a jiffy lube and have the engine completely flushed out. I am not sure the cost, but it would be less money then going to a shop. They also may tell you if they can tell if the head gasket is blown. Carefully check all that I have noted for you. I don't believe its a head gasket if it seems to run good except for the over heating.so, do that and keep me posted on the outcome. I would like to know about the hoses and pump. Please be kind when rating my help to you, that would be very kind of you. Let me know, and we can go into it further. Thanks, Sincerely,
Shastalaker7

Look at the tailpipe. Do you see white smoke? That smells sweet? Okay, let the engine cool about 12 hours. Open the radiator cap (the actual radiator cap, not the overflow cap), and start the engine. Do you see white smoke? If not, put your hand over the cap. Do you feel pressure? If any of these is a yes, bring it to a mechanic and have them check the head gasket. Or, if your A/C condensor looks like you hit a brick wall with it, and all the cooling fins are bent over, might want to replace that.

92' camry v6 started overheating ,noticed moister and drips from tail pipe. Blown head gasket or ? Also doesent appear to circulate in radiator untill I remove thermostat.Was going to R&R waterpum


A failed thermostat stuck closed will cause overheating. Test that item by boiling it. Nearly all car thermostats will have opened fully at 100 deg C. There may also be a number stamped on it to indicate its opening temp. You can keep track with a kitchen thermometer with a range above boiling.

A blown head gasket will often cause very quick overheating, and you may also see white bubbles like dry ice in the radiator neck. There is a simple test for combustion gases in the coolant, which any competent mech can do for you. The kit can also be bought from Autozone etc.

It is possible that the water pump has corroded away internally and is not circulating water, but if the car has always had antifreeze added, that should not happen. My Camry V6 water pump was still good after 220000 km. If you do get in there, replace the timing belt while you are at it.

A faulty temp sender in the block may also cause overheating, but only because it does not start the radiator fans when it should. You would notice if they were not running when the engine got really hot.

Tailpipe drips don't tell you much, as there is always moisture in the exhaust gas.

Tip

"A Question for TOYOTA ED,,,,", Need info for my 1992 Toyota Camry V6. Problem...


Hello again, I am the resident Toyota expert here at FixYa.

I work for a Toyota dealership, and, with this tip, I hope to shed some light on the alleged Toyota gas pedal issue, and bring some comfort to all of the Toyota owners that read this.

If this tip helps you, please click on the "helped" icon below. Thanks.

The first thing owners need to know is this:
There are TWO different manufactures of the gas pedals that Toyota uses in their cars. They are as follows:

C.T.S. and DENSO

The CTS pedal is the one currently being modified at your local Toyota dealerships. The government (specifically, NHTSA, has inspected and approved the ongoing repairs, take comfort that the government is very aware of the repair, and is in agreement with Toyota that this modification will cure any possibility of the accelerators 'stciking'.

Now, The DENSO pedal is markedly different, and has been found to have NO ISSUES of the alleged sticking condition.

Next, we need to address exactly WHICH cars have the allegedly affected gas pedal installed.

Look at your 17 digit Vehicle Identification number...If it starts with a ' J ', this denotes that you have a Japanese produced vehicle, and ALL Japanese produced vehicles will have the DENSO pedal fitted.
Again, the DENSO pedal has been shown to have no sticking issues.

If your car/truck has a 1, a 2, a 4 or a 5 in the first position of the VIN, this indicates that your vehicle is American production. If you have an American production vehicle, don't panic.

The CTS pedal is installed in about 50% of the American production vehicles. American production ALSO has the DENSO pedal fitted.

You can easily check to see which pedal you have, by looking at the black box that is connected to the moving part of the gas pedal. This is ABOVE the part where you press on with your foot

With a flashlight, illuminate the gas pedal in your car. If you cannot see a shiny silver metal plate on the side of the pedal box, that faces the brake pedal, you have a DENSO pedal. Look closer, and you will see the DENSO word visible on the side of the pedal assembly.

Again, DENSO pedals are not involved in the alleged 'sticky pedal issue'

The CTS pedal has a shiny silver metal plate on the side of the pedal, that faces the brake pedal. If you can see this shiny silver metal plate, you have the CTS pedal, and will need to take it to your Toyota service department, and they will modify the pedal. This procedure will take about 45 minutes.

Vehicles involved in the current CTS pedal modification:
Avalon
Camry
Corolla
Highlander
Tundra
Sequoia
Matrix

Vehicles NOT involved in the CTS pedal modification"
All Japanese production, AND
Yaris
FJ Cruiser
All SCION
Venza
Solara
Sienna

So, to sum up this tip...If you have a CTS pedal, it needs to be modified. As of this writing, I have personally modified over 150 pedals, and have YET to see one that was remotely sticky. Rest assured that the modification that your Toyota service department will eliminate any worries that you may have with regard to your gas pedal.

Hopefully, with this Tip, I have provided you some useful information, and, with this info, you will be able to know which pedal you have, and, if you DO have the CTS pedal, please make an appointment with your local Toyota dealership for the modification. ALl of the Toyota dealers have sufficient quantities of the repair parts on hand.

If you consider this tip helpful, please click on the helpful icon located below. If you want or need any more information, please feel free to post up a question in the question area located on this site, Preface your question with the following: "A Question for TOYOTA ED,,,,",

I will get right back to you.

Thanks for reading my tip

What causes a 1993 toyota vienta to heat up excessively


Coolant level low, thermostat stuck closed, radiator fans failed, head gasket leak to coolant jacket

After checking the coolant level, look at the radiator fans when it is very hot to see if they operate.

If OK, have a mechanic do a simple check for combustion gases in the coolant, and a compression check on all cylinders. This is not expensive.

If OK, change the thermostat and flush the radiator.

Hi,i,m a guest here .i have overheating problem with my toyota camery 92 v6...i got that my fan isn't working well , i changed it & the fan got better,,but it's not fixed yet & still i have...


How about the thermostat?

If your getting heat out the vents, the coolant is full, the upper hose is hot and the lower hose is cold that the t'stat is not opening.

If both the hoses are hot, the coolant is full, and you feel the fan pushing hot air than check the front of the radiator for debris build up. If there is no debris than the radiator could be plugged internally or the cooling fins may be severely rotted.

If the coolant is full, there is no heat out the vents and the upper hose is hot/lower hose is cold the water pump is not circulating enough coolant.

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.

Car running hot 1993 toyota camry. it has new engine head, new fan, midas did a radiator flush check to see if it was that. checked water pump said no its not the reason the thermator is not in the car...


You should have a thermostat in the engine. It allows the water flow to speed up or slow down as needed. Also, make sure your antifreeze is set for 20° BELOW zero.

Overheating


1. start the engine and leave the radiator cap open.
2. put a cardboard cover or a rug in the front of you radiator.
3. let it runs 20 minutes or more, see if it is overheated and see the water or coolant in the radiator circulated or not. If not, as soon as you have already changed water pump. thermostate and check the hoses, no leak, I think your radiator was blocked.


Did you put stop leak before?
