Question about 1999 Toyota Camry Solara
No, Just a ratchet and socket set, flat tip screwdriver, pair of pliers, thermostat, gasket scraper,hose clamps, and gasket sealant(if you want to use it). Question for you: How old are your hoses? 3 years or older? If so, might as well change them also. Remove the top hose( helps to have it all out of the way), Its metric, about a #12 or #13 socket to remove the bolts holding the thermostat housing cover off. Remove that (STOP) turn it over and clean it down to metal (want no leaks), remove the old thermostat, (STOP) and lets clean the block also (no leaks) down to metal. Replace the thermostat, apply a think coat of sealant, place the gasket, on the housing, apply a thin coat of sealant. Replace the housing. bolt back down, and replace the hose ( always use new clamps, safety first). Let is sit about 30 minutes, allow the sealant to set, start the car let it warm up, and then top off the radiator. (adding fluid when the engine is hot, will put it to the correct level. Hope this helps.
