    I seem to be having the same problem. I ran mine at 2000 RPM for 30 min while parked and it just skyrockets. I observed no leaking prior to the orverheating either. All the hoses have good pressure, and the motor fan clutch seems to be running fine. The funny thing is that if I run the 4-runner in the highway it will not overheat. It only acts up when I drive it through local traffic (stop and go), making me think it might be the motor fan clutch after all. I could really use some insight or clues as to what might be wrong.

    If so then it has to be the clutch fan because its getting the air from the high speeds not the clutch fan, put a electric fan then see what happens

I have a 1995 toyota 4 cyl pickup, it keeps overheating.There was some white smoke coming out of the exhaust but when i changed the thermostat and purged the coolant system the white smoke stopped and it...

Somehow the coolant is getting into the exhaust system. Either by a blown head gasket, a cracked head or possibly a cracked block. If it's an aluminum head, that's probably it.

1995 4Runner: coolant coming from exhaust pipe?...

Coolant coming from the exhaust pipe is a common indication that you have a blown head gasket. This is a fairly common problem on 4runners equipped with a 3.0L V6 engine. I do not recommend driving the vehicle in this condition even if it is not yet overheating because it can lead to serious engine damage.

Got a overheat signal the last 2 times i've driven my 95 4runner. Added some antifreeze when the engine was off and it started trickling fluid down the right front lower part of engine. Any Ideas?

possibly a blown head gasket. do you notice the fluid coming from between the head and the block? don't continue to drive this way because it will cause more damage to the engine and the head.

Old Toyota Corolla heating problem and engining stuttering.

you really need to have your cylinder head opened and checked. Your mechanic is right. The cylinder head might have warped due to overheating or might have a hairline crack were water can seep through. You will be lucky if the head gasket is the only problem.

Is this the diesel model ? or petrol power? Never lug your diesel engine it will overheat even a new engine. Check your coolant level when engine is cooled down it may need burped. Why the head gasket change? did the head get checked for cracks and surface flatness, could be still leaking combustion pressure gases into the coolant have a test for this
