Question about 1988 Toyota MR2
The radiator cap is in the engine compartment, not at the radiator. The mr2 has a very strange radiator set up, because of the rear engine. when the engine is cold, open the radiator cap. If you see fluid, you're probably ok. However, I would recommend if you are worried about it, to bleed the system of air. The procedure is in the owner's manual, but there are 3 air bleeding valves. You need some hose (usually found in the front trunk behind the shroud and spare tire, clear plastic flexible tubing. One valve is on the drivers side radiator top, one is by the heater, and one is on the engine/transmission (the one with the hose already going to your overflow tank). with the car off, you can open these valves to let air out of the system if it gets trapped in those high points.
Let me know if you have trouble.
