Asked by Jul 24, 2016 at 06:31 PM about the 1999 Toyota Camry LE

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Yesterday I noticed my radio going in and out,
then today my car started running hot then
cooled back down immediately after take off.
Then I turned off my car and had to have a
jump for it to start back up. I had oil changed
Friday and keep scheduled maintenance on my
car. Could it be a bad alternator? Since being
jumped it has started on its own everytime. I
just need some advice please I'm a single
momma and need a good running car!

You should get the alternator voltage tested should be charging at 14 volts.

Where can I get it tested at? Places like autozone or should I just take it to my normal mechanic?

Autozone will scan it for free.

Also get your battery tested. You can do it at Walmart.

I juse bought my battery in March and it has a 1 year warranty. But having a bad battery wouldn't make my car run hot would it?

As far as vehicle getting hot then cool back down after driving check anti freeze level maybe low and autozone will test your alternator for correct voltage for free.
