Hi, coolant goes into the reservoir pictured below. There is a different reservoir for the windshield washer fluid. There is also a much smaller reservoir for the brake fulid. That one is in the right rear of the engine compartment, just in front of the driver. Be careful not to put coolant in the brake or washer fluid reservoir. Thanks for using FixYa.

Drain and refill radiator on 2001 toyota sienna

The drain is always near the bottom of radiator... Sometimes there's a wing nut....just turn it to open it...Make sure you open your radiator cap so it will drain faster...Also after draining you close back off the wing nut then pour in antifreeze At the top under the radiator cap..Warning make sure your car has cooled down before opening either drain or drain plug

I want to change my coolant in v6 camry

normally , there is a drain vave at the bottom of your radiator on your car, and a person should wait till a cars cooling system is cool enough to drain, you can do this by opening up the drain valve and letting the antifreeze run into a safe container, [and flushing radiator out if you choose to do so,] but aftewards , make sure drain valve is closed, and you can refill the cooling system with the proper type of anti freeze that your cars manufacture calls for, afterwards, start car up and wait till thermostat opens, [ you can tell by your temperature gage,] and add additional antifreeze if needed, but make sure car does not over heat while running, if so shut it off and wait till it cools down, could be a air pocket in the system, will have to wait later to restart to allow air pocket to be relieved from system.

1995 toyota 4runner where do you put antifreeze in the radiator or the expansion tank

If coolant mix below 50% and room in tank for antifreeze, pour neat antifreeze in tank.

Run for a while and check antifreeze strength. Parts stores sell a little eye dropper with plastic colored beads to test coolant.

1994 toyota camry- recently replaced radiator, timing belt, water pump and thermostat- no heat when idling- lots of heat when reving the engine or driving

check your antifreeze mix, this is a common problem when your antifreeze mix is too much antifreeze and not enough water. 50/50 mix to 55/45 mix is ideal for most applications. too much antifreeze and not enough water will not transfer heat as well as the proper mixture.
make sure your mixture is 50-55% antifreeze.

Toyota Corolla 2003 CE. Car started overheating, Pulled over and steam was coming from engine. Found out radiator seemed to be leaking. poured antifreeze into radiator and heard liquid splashing on ground...

You may need to "burp" the system and get the air out. When car has completely cooled, take radiator a off, start car, let it warm up (but not overheat) and see if level drops. Add coolant/water mix to top it off. Never run straight antifreeze. At most a 50/50 mix of distilled water and antifreeze.
Air can get trapped in areas of the system when its been drained. Just monitor that temp and don't risk damaging the engine by overheating.

Where do I put the antifreeze?

Open the radiator if it needs fluid top it off, then move to the expansion tank. If you can't find any marks (first make sure that it is the cooling system expansion tank and not the wiper fluid or something else) then fill it halfway.

How do I replace 2000 Toyota Camry radiator?

Let the engine cool down. With a catch can under the radiator unscrew the petcock. It's usually on the bottom drivers side end tank. Next disconnect the fan wiring and remove the fans. Disconnect the upper and lower radiator hoses and the overflow hoses from the radiator. Remove the two transmission cooler lines. Remove the two mounting brackets at the top of the radiator and pull the radiator out. Transfer any parts that aren't included with the new radiator and install radiator. The rest is the reverse of removal. I like to use new hose clamps and fresh antifreeze whenever i change a radiator, but it's up to you. If the original antifreeze isn't too old and you didn't get any transmission fluid in it you could reuse it you want.
