Question about 1987 Toyota Land Cruiser
Your thermostat may be staying closed, if the top coolant hose becomes hot after the engine running for a while, then thermostat is opening ok. Next check to see if the bottom hose going to the rad is getting warm. If its staying cold then you may have a problem with the water pump not circulating the water around the cooling system. If thats ok check the rad cap is sealing ok. when the engine gets up to normal engine temperture remove the reservoir top filling cap which has a rubber pipe going to the thermostat housing. with the engine running there should be no water coming down the pipe and exiting the filler cap. If there is it could be the rad cap not holding pressure which it would need to be replaced or the head gasket is leaking and pressurising the coolant system.. hope this helps you..

This can be due to ur cylinder head being too damaged by the time it was skimmed,Cylinder head gasket replaced was not of genuine quality,also check if the thermostat is working properly and the radiator is clean,as in the water flow is good.If not try flushing the Radiator.

Ondo the clip on the highest hot hose and vent any air from system.
engine should be hot.(this should be done first before any remedial work undertaken,if needed)
