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.

Overheating after driving three miles


I would replace the thermostat. Its a cheap fix and most likely the issue. If you replace the thermostat and are still overheating then you may have a more serious issue. But going 3 miles and overheating sound like the thermostat is not opening up at operating temperature.

Replaced thermostat on 1993 toy corolla - still no heat and overheating engine. what do I check next?


check the waterhoses for heat, touch them once the engine is at operating temperature. If one of them is cold against the other, you waterpump needs to be replaced.
