Question about 1988 Toyota Camry

2 Answers

My engine on my 90 Toyota Corolla is overheating after only about 20 minutes of driving. I have been told that I should first replace the thermostat. Where is it located? While I'm at it I would like to drain and flush the radiator. Where is the radiator drain plug also?

The drain plug is on the bottom of the radiator,simply follow top radiator hose to the engine at the end should be your thermostat which is definitely causing the over heating

The Toyota of your year is equipt with a map sensor,it is located on the firewall with a vacuum line leading directly to the intake manifold, This sensor measure engine load and adjust fuel accordingly.This is definetly the problem,make sure the vacuum hose did not come out,Look at the underhood emission sticker for it,it Toyota has a different name for it it might be called boost sensor or pressure sensor.

Bad ignition coil. Borrow a known good distributor to swap with yours, and if the problem goes away you'll know that's what it was. The ignition coil is inside the distributor body and can be easily replaced.

Overheating engine: termo guage at the middle during idle


The Temp gauge should read in the middle of the gauge at operating temperature. This is normal. The radiator fan should come on after idling (not driving) for 20 minutes. The fan should also come on when you turn on the AC. Are you experiencing overheat problems?
Please reply if you have overheating issues.
