1998 camry overheatingafter several minutes the water hoses collapse


Asked by Apr 06, 2016 at 08:25 PM about the 1998 Toyota Camry

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

1 Answer


If hose is collapsing there is air in the cooling system. To remove air remove cap off of over flow tank add anti freeze to full mark leave cap off and start vehicle and let idle, once vehicle starts to reach operating temp and thermostat starts to open anti freeze level in tank will drop add more anti freeze to full mark then put cap back on also anti will start to back up in tank before thermostat starts to open this is normal.
