I had a 1993 with v6 had multipule problems with cooling system mechanic changed water pump and thermostat it overheated on the way home from him i found the little hose missing from inside the overflow tank so it couldnt take back from it i replaced that and it didnt overheat for a couple of months then the hydrulic radiator fad stopped working it was the sending unit on the engine that worked for a couple more months then i found the radiator caps were bad it has 2 of them . ( your radiator could also be clogging up its old ) then a year later the head gasket went car was never overheated bad to where the coolant was steaming out either so that is probably what you are in for its an old car . hope this helps

My 1994 toyota camry is ovverheating even when the water pump is new and the radiator are goo, no leak the hoses are good The car is still overheated


If this happens very quickly, it is probable you have a head gasket leak to the coolant jacket. There is a simple test a mechanic can do for combustion gases in the coolant.

If the car warms up normally, then keeps getting hotter, the temp sender may be faulty, causing the radiator fans not to run when they should start. Check they do run when the engine is getting hotter.

Or, the thermostat could have failed closed, not allowing the coolant to circulate.

Coolant boiling in resevoir.


It can be faulty coolant temperature sensor.Its not sensing exact coolant heat temperature so its overheating then required level.

-----------

Get the coolant pressure tested, its definitely leaking coolant. You will need to get the coolant running line.


Pressure test will help you to know from where exactly coolant/refrigerant is getting leaked.

1994 Toyota Camry LE V6 Overheating, Steaming Engine--Blown Head Gasket??


It is best to be systematic about this. It could be either the water loss or the overheating which is the basic cause, either one could come first.

- there is a test for combustion gases in the water jacket, from a blown head gasket. This will very quickly cause overheating, and the excess pressure will blow the water out the overflow reservoir. If the car has already overheated and died, this is unfortunately quite likely

- the temperature sensor in the block may have failed. This will prevent the fans from running when the engine overheats, and you can see this. The fans are not driven by a belt. P68....

- the thermostat may have stuck closed. You will have to get it out and test it, but this is not difficult. See p328


http://www.turboninjas.com/camry/eg2.pdf


- this model of Camry has a plastic top tank to the radiator, which eventually cracks. Look there carefully.

- it may be that a radiator hose has gone soft and closed up. Check they are allowing good coolant flow.

- it could be that in a car this age that the radiator has silted up and is not allowing coolant through. Disconnect the top and bottom radiator hoses, when cool, and run water through from a garden hose to get some idea about that.

94 toyota camry xle v6 overheating noticed leak in overflow res.


I think the leakage out of the reservoir is being caused by the overheating, not the other way round.

This can be caused by several things:

- failed thermostat (not opening)
- failed temperature sensor (not turning on the fans)
- blown fuse or failed relays in fan supply (if electric)
- soft hose from radiator to water pump "sucking in" and preventing flow
- blown head gasket allowing combustion gas into the water jacket (less likely)

Change the radiator cap, it may be the wrong pressure rating which will cause the coolant to boil at a much lower temperature than designed.
