Question about 1998 Toyota Camry
Hello, the car over heats after it has been running for 10 mins, we have serviced the radiator, changed the thermostat and the fan belt and the car is still over heating. Please can you help??
Are you using a TOYOTA thermostat? The OEM 'stats have what we refer to as a "wiggle valve", and the 'stat should be inserted with this valve point straight up to 12 o'clock. This allows air to be purged from the cooling system. If everything is good, you may just have a "air blockage"; the system will not pump air in the cooling jacket, the water pump will just cavitate the air, resulting in your overheat condition...

check to see if the lower radiator hose is collapsing, if not then take the fan belt off and check for slop in the water pump. Somethimes the pump can go bad and not leak. let me know if this works out for you.
