Question about 1991 Toyota Pickup
I recently had a new engine put in. Then the knock sensor had to be replaced. After this the engine started running hot, I was losing coolant, and I noticed oil leaking out from around one of the head bolts. Thinking there was some kind of leak in the system, I added a stop leak product the the radiator. Turns out the mechanic forgot to replace a clamp on one of the hoses. Now I am not losing coolant, but the engine stills runs hot sometimes. Do you think I might have clogged the radiator? Also, will removing, sealing and retorching the head bolt stop the oil leak? The engine runs great and the exhaust is invisible. No funny smells.
Did you check the thermostat? brand new thermostat sometimes went bad too; happen too me once on my 1989 toyota supra....; Check the water pump and hoses. Flush the radiator really good then get 50/50 mix water & coolant;
