"A Question for TOYOTA ED,,,,", Need info for my 1992 Toyota Camry V6. Problem...


Hello again, I am the resident Toyota expert here at FixYa.

I work for a Toyota dealership, and, with this tip, I hope to shed some light on the alleged Toyota gas pedal issue, and bring some comfort to all of the Toyota owners that read this.

If this tip helps you, please click on the "helped" icon below. Thanks.

The first thing owners need to know is this:
There are TWO different manufactures of the gas pedals that Toyota uses in their cars. They are as follows:

C.T.S. and DENSO

The CTS pedal is the one currently being modified at your local Toyota dealerships. The government (specifically, NHTSA, has inspected and approved the ongoing repairs, take comfort that the government is very aware of the repair, and is in agreement with Toyota that this modification will cure any possibility of the accelerators 'stciking'.

Now, The DENSO pedal is markedly different, and has been found to have NO ISSUES of the alleged sticking condition.

Next, we need to address exactly WHICH cars have the allegedly affected gas pedal installed.

Look at your 17 digit Vehicle Identification number...If it starts with a ' J ', this denotes that you have a Japanese produced vehicle, and ALL Japanese produced vehicles will have the DENSO pedal fitted.
Again, the DENSO pedal has been shown to have no sticking issues.

If your car/truck has a 1, a 2, a 4 or a 5 in the first position of the VIN, this indicates that your vehicle is American production. If you have an American production vehicle, don't panic.

The CTS pedal is installed in about 50% of the American production vehicles. American production ALSO has the DENSO pedal fitted.

You can easily check to see which pedal you have, by looking at the black box that is connected to the moving part of the gas pedal. This is ABOVE the part where you press on with your foot

With a flashlight, illuminate the gas pedal in your car. If you cannot see a shiny silver metal plate on the side of the pedal box, that faces the brake pedal, you have a DENSO pedal. Look closer, and you will see the DENSO word visible on the side of the pedal assembly.

Again, DENSO pedals are not involved in the alleged 'sticky pedal issue'

The CTS pedal has a shiny silver metal plate on the side of the pedal, that faces the brake pedal. If you can see this shiny silver metal plate, you have the CTS pedal, and will need to take it to your Toyota service department, and they will modify the pedal. This procedure will take about 45 minutes.

Vehicles involved in the current CTS pedal modification:
Avalon
Camry
Corolla
Highlander
Tundra
Sequoia
Matrix

Vehicles NOT involved in the CTS pedal modification"
All Japanese production, AND
Yaris
FJ Cruiser
All SCION
Venza
Solara
Sienna

So, to sum up this tip...If you have a CTS pedal, it needs to be modified. As of this writing, I have personally modified over 150 pedals, and have YET to see one that was remotely sticky. Rest assured that the modification that your Toyota service department will eliminate any worries that you may have with regard to your gas pedal.

Hopefully, with this Tip, I have provided you some useful information, and, with this info, you will be able to know which pedal you have, and, if you DO have the CTS pedal, please make an appointment with your local Toyota dealership for the modification. ALl of the Toyota dealers have sufficient quantities of the repair parts on hand.

If you consider this tip helpful, please click on the helpful icon located below. If you want or need any more information, please feel free to post up a question in the question area located on this site, Preface your question with the following: "A Question for TOYOTA ED,,,,",

I will get right back to you.

Thanks for reading my tip

Where is the radiator cap on a Lexus ES 300 1996


It's not on the radiator but more likely to be in a plastic bottle somewhere above the top water line as an expansion bottle.
Look for what could be a blue cap on a bottle, usually screw top, which has a couple of pipes going towards the radiator

Refill antifreeze/coolant


dont whatever you do try to remove the small red drain plug as it will either brake which means a new radiator or will start leaking take off the lower radiator pipe it will be kept on with a what us brits call a jubalie clip the fluid will drain from that when its empty just put pipe back on and refill radiator when the radiator is full start the car and the level will go down keep filling untill it reaches the max level on the over flow bottle or if it hasent got one till it reaches the top of the filler if there is to much in when the water expands it will go down the over fill pipe hope this helps cheers ivan

I have a holden rodeo 1998 ute. the radiator is putting water into the overflow bottle but not drawing it back down again. have replaced radiator cap and regulator.


flush the radiator out means take it off. flush out swapping end to drain it, keep doing this until there is no rust water and runs clear. if it is red really red colour you should change the radiator. also you should flush out the internal heater as well this can be done with hose pipe swapping hose pile from one pipe in to out pipe. and just keep doing it till it is clear.. flush engine out put hose in on hole and block up other pipe that have been taken off e.g radiator and heater change side of engine until clean running water you may want to take the thermostat off and clean that out to. if and black sludge comes out it has been blocking up for awhile and not had a regular clean out. 2 to 3 years is fine with atop up of antifreeze every year.after all clean put parts back on. fill system run engine till hot keep topping up until all the air is out squeeze all accessible pipes you can and get the are out when the fan comes on. turn engine off if fan don't stop pull the fan fuse will be in the engine bay fuse box. and leave engine to cool down leaving the top off the bottle. top up when cold put in the antifreeze mix/summer mix. and one cap of strong bleach just one. this will stop it blocking up so quickly.. only one cap any more will make air in the system. should be fine after this.

How do you put radiator in 1999 hyandai accent


1) Drain radiator by removing cap, and bottom radiator drain bung or bottom hose.
2) Remove top hose.
3) Disconnect the radiator fan's wiring and any temperature sensor wiring if fitted.
4) Remove radiator retaining clasps
5) Disconnect radiator bottom hose.
6) If fitted with an auto box, then remove automatic gearbox oil pipes (Underside)(you might wat to clasp these so they don't leak oil everywhere)
7) Remove radiator expansion bottle feed pipe from top of radiator.
8) Ease out the radiator. If the radiator fan is getting stuck or caught up, then drop the radiator back down and remove the fan first after disconnecting from the radiator body.
9) With new and old radiator placed side by side on a soft surface, change across any components from the old radiator, which didn't come with the new one. These may or may not include such things as: cap, fan retaining screws or clips, bottom radiator seating rubbers, rubber fan shrouding, temperature sensor, top and bottom rubber hoses.
10) Rebuild by reversing the above instructions. Apply silicone pipe sealant to top and bottom hose locations. Make sure you clean and/or replace any heavily corroded metal pipes which connect to the radiator. (Now is also a good opportunity to replace the thermostat to be on the safe side)

11) Fill system with a fresh 50/50 water/antifreeze mix, flush out and refill expansion bottle. Just before you refill the system, turn the interior heater setting up to maximum heat, but do not start the vehicle.
12) Top radiator up to max. Gently massage the top radiator hose to help eliminate air from the system.
13) Once filled, start the car. Pay attention to the temperature. Keep topping up the radiator as bubbles come around the system and the coolant level drops. At the point no more bubbles appear, close off the radiator with the cap. Allow the engine to reach normal operating temperature. If the weather is cold you may want to hold the engine at around 2,500 revolutions to help build heat faster. Keep it running until the radiator fan kicks in, then let it idle for a couple of minutes.
14) Stop the engine and let it cool.
15) Once cool, open the radiator cap and top up again if level is low.

16) Road-test the vehicle. After returning check again for any leaks.


Running the car for the first few days after radiator replacement, check the radiator level and expansion bottle level every day for the first two or three days. This level may drop slightly as any trapped air pockets are pushed out while running. Also, it is possible that any small leaks may begin after adding fresh anti-freeze to the system. If you begin loosing fluid over these first few days, then re-inspect your work and run a cooling system pressure test.

Dear,

your car has got the radiator jammed due to rusting or unwanted ingrediants,

You need to get the radiator and hose pipes flushed out with the cleaning agent for the problem to get solved.
