2001 Celica GT overheating and no heat

I have a 2001 Celica GT. I was driving to visit a relative and I had only driven about 2 miles and the temp dial was flashing hot. I pulled over, shut off the engine and poured some water in the tank. Now, the car overheats on a regular basis, enough that I cant drive it hardly at all. There hasnt been heat coming into the cab for a few months. I am thinking its the thermostat but Im not sure. Please help. Only form of transportation.

Yes start with the thermostat, also need to fine out why it was low on coolant.

    You should get a coolant flush first, and make sure they purge the anti-freeze. Then change thermostat and then water pump if the flush doesn't work. Wish we did the flush first, but the repairs were rather easy for our friend and only cost us $80 plus parts. The clogged line is the problem, it causes the overheating and no heat.

I had a similar problem. I replaced the Thermostat, and while that was out I had the Heater Core flushed out. It had tons of rust coming out, so that MAY be a problem for you as well.

The Thermostat replacement helped tremendously with the "No Heat" situation, as it brings the engine to a fixed heat level and keeps it there.

For help with the Thermostat replacement, see my help on THAT situation as well. It's a task you may not want to attempt alone.

Over heating engine, can drive for 1 mile without damage?

Any engine, when cold, takes at least 3 miles before reaching operating temperature.. After reaching operating temp it still takes a mile or 8(depending on your vehicle) before "over" temperatures are reached. Therefore if needed, a vehicle can be driven several miles without any coolant/water at all before overheating and causing damage, if started from from cold.

2001 toyota celica no heat coming out

check your radiator level, as stupid as it sounds my 01 celica didn't have heat for 2 years. I was thinking it was the heat flap or something because when I drove the heat would start working and when I stopped it would stop working. Yesterday the car overheated so I checked the antifreeze and added about half a gallon. The car stopped overheating and as a side result the heater started working normally again. I did head slap and went on with life. Most vehicles have the heater core low to the floor but in the celica it is actually higher than the motor which means if fluid is at all low it won't work as it turns out.
