The over flow cap should be replaced, it don't hold pressure like it should and causes an engine to overheat. And the thermostat, it let water run though the engine and some engines will over heat without one. But if you never had one then you should be fine. Try the cap, a auto store can usually do a pressure check.

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.

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.

My 2003 v6 camry recently overheated. Both alternator belt and 2nd belt recently replaced. No evidence of losing coolant. No change in oil appearance. Replaced coolant reservoir and let idle to...


both fans do not turn on at the same time. one fan is for the AC condensor and the other is for the radiator. A/C turns on one fan, Radiator temp switch turns on the other one. If you have never replaced the thermostat, or done a radiator flush/refill, you should do one now.

New thermostat good temp at all speeds get to 65 runs hotter 70 hotter 75 even hotter wonder if fan temp switch is going bad fans only come on for 10 or 15 seconds?


high speed overheating are a good indication. something is wrong with radiator. check coolant level, make sure the fans are working, and check radiator for broken fins or dirt and debris in radiator fins. if air is not going through radiator, it will over heat. if all is fine. replace radiator cap to see if this fixes problem. but check radiator fins first for debris.

more likely to be a thermostat/fan temp sensor or fan problem.(dont you just love armchair mechanics,any decent tech would start with the cheapest/obvious solution and work up).

water pump may be bad. or you may have a head gasket leaking. If it perks over out of the radiator before it really hot thats a sign you have a head gasket issue. A shop can tell you for sure with a smog machine. If you have gas in your water the smog machine will read it.

1993 Toyota Camry V6: Engine Overheating Prob


Yes if it hydraulically operated it could be because the pump for the fan is bad. If I am not mistaken the fan is run off of the power steering pump correct. check and make sure the pump is working correctly. I have not seen a hydraulic motor on a car I know they put them on a lot of diesel trucks like humvees and some Chevy diesels but not on a car. Most are usually electrical. I know on humvees with a hydraulic fan they have a fan controller check this and make sure it is working right you can unplug the controller and the fan should stay ingaged and turn faster.
