My 1996 toyota avalon is overheating. There are no leaks, thermostat is new, radiator is new and has been flushed, changed the fan relay. Don't know why its overheating.

Is the fan coming on? If not, possible lower radiator fan switch/sensor? No leaks... So overflow tanks level stays stable? How do you know it is overheating? Elevated temp guage? Engine smells overheated? Both? We need more info.

Radio and tape deck on 1997 Toyota Avalon randomly coming on and now has a burning smell in the tape deck. What is the issue?

unfrotunately, due to the age, the burning smell is possible coming from a short inside the player.....I would suggest that you pull the fuse, so that it does not functioin anymore, and replace ASAP, as I have seen a simple short turn into a bigger problem

Hi, airjeff8

In a nutshell, you need to get the valve cover off and see whats going on under there. It could be a broken camshaft or a valve/spring issue amongst other things.

Whip the cover off and have a look.
