Question about 1986 Toyota MR2
Posted by Anonymous on
I just was reading this and had a few thoughts for you:
1. Is it possible the thermostat is installed backwards? That's an easy fix.
2. Is the radiator fan working?
3. If the pumping action from the water pump seems normal yet the engine still wants to heat up, it's possible that the radiator is clogged-up.
4. Worst case... If with the radiator cap off, the coolant literally blows out of the opening... and the engine has really heated up recently... you may have a blown head gasket. If you suspect this, have the oil drained for inspection of coolant in the oil and don't run the engine anymore. A major fix would be required.
Hope some of this helps you. Good luck!
