S. Sly is right. You have motor oil in your water and it IS headgasket time. Mill the head and make it perfectly flat, again. About $50 as a machine shop operation, alone.

I have a 1993 toyota Camry V6. I have replaced the air intake hose, radiator cap, air filter, thermostat, and coolant reservoir. Everday it still ovet heats. The water cames from the little overage hose on...


This could result from a thermostat which is stuck closed, or a failed coolant temp sensor not allowing the radiator fans to run when they should, but I think you have a blown head gasket. Overheating is a classic sign of combustion gases getting into the coolant. The pressure also forces it out of the overflow.


Warm up your engine a little, about half, and remove the radiator cap by putting a towel over it first. Then let the engine keep idling until hot while you look down the filler neck into the radiator......carefully.

If you see white bubbles like dry ice, that is a failed head gasket. If not, have a mechanic do a test for combustion gas in the coolant with a gadget like this

93 4runner new radiator new t stat still overheating.


Check:

1. Thermostat. Replace with an OEM one from the dealer. 2. Radiator. Make sure it's not plugged up. 3. Radiator Cap. There cheap from the dealer and I consider them a maint. item. 4. Water pump. How many miles are on it? 5. Fan Clutch. Make sure it has some resistance
6. Temp. Sensor for the gage.Have you checked that the electric cooling fan is turning on when the engine reaches operating temp? A faulty coolant temperature sensor will not trigger the fan, or the fan itself or fan relay could be shot. You might also have a head gasket leak that is not into the cylinders, so it would overheat without causing milky oil. Another possibility is a clogged radiator -- with 15 years on the vehicle, it's quite possible. Have the cooling system pressure checked, and replace the radiator cap for starters -- if the radiator cap isn't holding pressure, overheating will occur rapidly.

Where is the petcock valve located on the radiator on 1993 toyota camry V6?


Hi,
There are no petcock valve on toyota camry.
What its a plain radiator cap that has a valve in it, pressure can be activated at certain point and the coolant goes through the coolant reservoir.
You mean the radiator drain plug? you would see that plug underneathe that radiator assembly, wing nut type plastic made, can be loosen by hand or a pair of pliers!
Hope that was your looking for!

What can cause water to get very hot and be pushed out into the the coolant reservoir in a 1993 Toyota Camry LE v6?


Several things ... best guess, in order:
1. (very likely) Radiator fan is not blowing (turn on car and a/conditioner. When compressor kicks in, the radiator fan must blow). If it ims not blowing, the radiator fan motor may be burned out ($40).
2. Check / replace "cooling fan" fuse ($1) and / or "cooling fan" relay switch ($7).
3. Could be (not likely) thermostat sticking shut. Replace thermostat ($20)
4. Could be radiator hose collapse (not very likely) ($18)
5. Radiator clog or hose leak (possible)
6. Head gasket broken (not likely unless you don't fix current problem) ($150)

The more detail of the symptoms, the better we can assist you.

Hope this helps!

91 toyota camry overheating problem


So far you did the right things in the right order. If you have a pressure cap (looks like a radiator cap to the rear side of the engine. Dealer $15) change the pressure cap also and then flush the radiator. A sure sign of blockage is when you open the radiator look around inside the top if you see brown or green kind of gunky stuff. Flush the radiator anyway.
If after the radiator is flushed and you still overheat, the next posibility is the head gasket. But don,t worry yet, follow these steps and observations. (this goes for 93 camry V6 also, I have one)

  1. change radiator cap and pressure cap where applicable
  2. Change the thermostat.
  3. Some cars may have a thermo switch which ramps up the fan(double fan designs). Change that if applicable.
  4. flush the radiator and engine block
  5. change waterpump AND headgasket.
The temperature guage can tell you what you need to know.
  1. If the guage starts to spike up after stopping, pausing in traffic or while in gear not moving but it is fine while driving along the highway, then you are having a blockage in the cooling system. FLUSH SYSTEM.
  2. if there is a bubbling sound in the engine when you turn it off, FLUSH SYSTEM
  3. If the car overheats at anytime, anywhere and it drinks coolant like a fish, then you my friend have a headgasket problem. Change waterpump and head together
