Firstly, ensure you have the required 'mixture' of coolant/water (must have required coolant).

Second, I would recommend you re-test all the cooling system sensors again (make sure they're within specifications), in case a new one is faulty.

Third, ensure the new thermostat was of the correct temp setting (they all differ), so that it opens at the required time. Most cooling systems operate within 90 - 100degC.

Fourth, make sure the radiator (and associated hoses) aren't blocked.

If your temp gauge is reading higher than normal, but NOT in the danger zone...then this can be considered normal (especially if you've replaced with new components) and nothing to be concerned about.

However, if the temp gauge IS in the danger zone....then this suggests the coolant is not flowing through the cooling system properly.

If all above components test ok, then it's possible your water pump may not be pumping enough volume.

SOURCE: My 96 camry is having

U do indeed have a slipping transmission, by now it is burnt to a crisp, no u can't save it, once the clutches are worn out and start slipping the transmission will need to be overhauled, I assume you have checked the fluid level and it is at least showing on the dipstick with hot engine, so check the flluid level. A new radiator would not cause the transmission to fail.

SOURCE: Last summer we had to

the corrosion you noted when you removed the old radiator is throughout the cooling system and is probably causing a blockage in it, he first suspect would be the heater core. When the new radiator was done, did you replace the thermostat too? If you didn't, replace it now, and get a good commercial flush and thoroughly flush out the cooling system, it might save you from having to replace the heater core.

My fans on my radiator isnt turning on i had my radiator changed and when the new was installed the fans didnt turn on again. What did i do wrong?

The fans are activated by heat sensors; they won't engage until the water temperature reaches a certain level. If they don't come on at all, check that the sensor wires are intact and securely on the sensors.

Radiator fan will not come on , the car is over heating. I was told that I could unplug a sensor on the bottom of the radiator and the fans will run all the time but I do not see this sensor . Noah

no the sensor needs replaced if it is bad try to wire the fan up hot to the battery by unpluging the harness two wires and wiring it to the battery to see if the fan is good if it is call me at 9378292794 and i will tell you a couple different things you can do. you can also test the harness and see if it is getting a ground and a hot.

What would cause my radiator fans not to run

A lot of different things fall into this senario.Low coolant level,air in the cooling system,and a stuck thermostat,or,a bad coolant sensor,or even a bad cooling fan relay,or the cooling fans are bad.Turn the defrost on or the ac,the cooling fans should come on if the fans,and the relay are ok,if so,replace the thermostat,and coolant sensor,and bleed the cooling system of air.

Radiator fan on my 1994 toyota camry

there are actually 3 temp sensors. 1 is on the top of the engine that goes to temp gauge in dash has 1 wire. next to it is a 3 wire sensor for engine control and choke. on the bottom of the radiator next to the hose is a 2 wire sensor. loosen all 3 but leave connected. get engine hot past halfway point on dash gauge. with ac off disconnect 1 sensor at time. start with 2 wire under radiator. it takes the most abuse. fan will come on when you disconnect broken sensor. 2sensor must agree for fan to stay on till engine cools when turned off. note this is solution i used after verifying fuses, fuseable links and relays worked.WOO HOO! make sure you check both the fuse box under hood and fuse boxleft side of steering wheel my ECU fuse was inside my bros was outside.ECU B on my car goes to nothing and is under hood. Had it confused with ECU on wiring diagram.DOH!

Coolant fan switch

it's hooked up to the temperature sensor. if you don't get a temp light on, the sensor might be bad. it's usually located where the upper radiator hose goes into the engine. also check your thermostat.

the temp sensor is probably stuck in the open or hot position the fan temp sensor probably needs to be replaced.It could also be that you have a short in the wiring harness......most sensors like this complete the ground circut so if the wire is touching a ground some where the fan will think the sensor is telling it to run. check the wiring harness first itll be the cheapest to repair. these sensors are generally somewhere on the intake manifold.

Look for:
a bad relay
" " fan
" " " switch
" " temp sensor
a loose, corroded or broken wire at the temp sensor at the bottom of the radiator.
Start with the relay. Buy or borrow a Haynes manual for this car, lotsa pics.
You will need a continuity checker (cheap)

Radiator fan is not working

Some toyotas have a coolant sensor NOT to be confused with the Temperature sensor. The coolant sensor is located on the radiator it selt, most likely on the bottom and close to the middle. Replace it and the fans should work as needed. Now a temporary fix, unplug the sensor, this will make the fans run only when the engine is running or the key is on the on position. Good luck.
