1989 Toyota Corolla 2bl Fan not coming on to cool radiator

You would first need to jumper the relay to make sure the fan can run, and then check the relay circuits for power and a ground signal from the computer. The computer grounds the relay when the fan is needed.

Car will not start in park or neutral , have tried moving it back and forward to engage linkages but is not starting . fan and lights come on and thats it

Is it a carburated or electronic fuel injection? but, firstly you should detach 2 electrical connectors from the starter and clean them thoroughly ( cable, bolt, connectors...) with CRC QD Electronic Cleaner to see if this works. REMEMBER TO DETACH THE CABLE FROM THE NEGATIVE TERMINAL OF THE BATTERY BEFORE YOU GET TO WORK ON THE STARTER CONNECTORS.

Location of the collant plug

The radiator drain is located on the bottom of the radiator. If you are unable to easily locate it, try removing the bottom radiator hose as a second way to drain the cooling system. The power steer pump noise may be caused by a failing pump – check it out

How Do I Repair My Car? / How Do I Change My Car Radiator?
How Do I Change My Car Radiator? WARNING! A cooling system can have up to 15 p.s.i. when hot. Only repair or check when the ENGINE IS COLD or personal injury can result. Always have the vehicle under inspection on level ground, in park with the emergency brake on. Always wear protective eyewear, gloves and necessary clothing before inspection or work begins. Never crank an engine over when anyone is near the battery or engine. Always have an operational fire extinguisher close by, obey all first aid instructions in the event of an injury. Never stand in front or behind a vehicle when cranked over or running. When engine is cranked over keep hands and clothing away from rotating components.
window.google_render_ad(); The vehicle's radiator is the component that removes heat from the engine through thermal heat exchange. It is usually located in the front of the vehicle under the hood. The engine creates heat from the internal combustion that continuously occurs inside the engine, this heat is transferred to the engine coolant, then circulated through the thermostat then to the radiator. Inside the radiator there are many small tubes with cooling fins attached that allows the coolant to be cooled and then returned to the engine in a continuous cycle. Radiators are mostly made of 2 plastic tanks and an aluminum core.
Step 1 - Identify Radiator and Cooling System Components (under hood)
how_to_replace_radiator.gif The thermostat housing is where the thermostat resides, it is connected to the radiator upper tank. The system is filled and checked at the radiator cap. The radiator is held in place by the radiator holder brackets and is usually near the top radiator tank. Some radiator configurations may vary in appearance but the concept is the same.
Step 2 - Disconnect Negative Battery Terminal
how_to_replace_radiator_2.gif Make sure the ignition key is in the off position, loosen the terminal pinch bolt and disconnect the battery terminal (gloves suggested). Anytime you perform repair work like this it is a good idea to disconnect the battery to avoid electrical short circuits. Always disconnect the negative battery cable to avoid a short to ground and NEVER let the wrench contact to positive side of the battery. Make sure the battery is clean at all times. If corrosion exists rinse battery with water (hose) and sprinkle with baking soda to naturalize the remaining acid.
window.google_render_ad(); Step 3 - Drain Cooling System
drain_coolant.gif (Bottom View) Locate the radiator drain valve, turn it counter clockwise to loosen. On some cars there is a protective plastic splash guard that may need to be removed to access the radiator drain valve.
