Question about 1992 Lexus Es 300

1 Answer

I was driving my 1992 lexus es300 when I noticed the coolant needle up in the red zone. I stop and noticed that the overflow had filled up and was very hot. What could be wrong? It was a hot day and I was running the air conditioner.

Mini Cooper temperature gauge goes to red zone when idle


check coolant level could be too low allowing air in the cooling system causing air pocket in engine around the engine coolant sensor.coolant sensor needs to be in hot coolant so it will cause the cooling fan to come on at a set temperature.make sure coolant correct level and the coolant level in the cooling overflow jug should be at full cold mark.the cooling overflow jug should never be empty,if you see empty cooling overflow jug air got in the cooling system so make sure when engine cold every time raise hood make sure cooling overflow jug coolant level at full cold mark.if jug stay empty you have cooling leak.so replace radiator cap,if coolant level all good,i would replace the engine coolant temperature and thermostat.when your car come to a long stop or driving along long line of slow moving traffic the engine coolant blower motor should running if not have vechicle code scan for faulty coolant fan motor control module.or ecm problems.

White smoke means water is getting into the engine from teh coolant system. Likely that your engine cylinder head has a crack, or head gasket is bad

I think you can have a head gasket leak and not get coolant in your oil. You may be getting enough in there that it's causing that cylinder to not fire and give a rough idle.

My 1992 Lexus ES300 overheats after driving it a short distance (4 miles). Checked radiator, hoses, all looks good and no leaks. Please tell me what else could cause the engine to overheat.


If you see no leaks and the fluid level is also good in the rad overflow bottle. It could be the water pump. When the car is running do you feel the hoses are hot and pressurized. Do you feel heat with your heater cranked up. The coolant may not be circulating. This would mean you need a new water pump, most likely the impeller is worn/broken inside. It can be fixed by yourself but will require some skill and time.

Valve stem seals can cause this problem, but normally only when first started. Oil in the rocker cover seaps through the oil seals into the cylinders and is burnt up on start up.
Try a "STOP A LEAK" additive and it may reduce the oil consumption and smoke.
I found some on e-bay and it worked on my tired old escort. It even stopped the rattling tappets.

Lexus ES300 White smoke out the exhaust no milky substance in oil


It could be the intake gaskets or even still the head gasket. How about the coolant ? Did you refill with same type coolant ? Have you noticed if it's thick and gooey ? mixing coolants will sometimes produce a thick gooey coolant that clogs up the cooling system. If the car ran hot it could also be a cracked head or block. Warped heads also. Somehow the coolant seems to be getting into the cylinder(s).
