Temp running to high

Asked by Aug 12, 2015 at 08:47 AM about the 2001 Toyota Camry LE

Question type: General

I have a 2001 Toyota Camry. My car is running a little high. he fans are not kicking on. I
have changed the temp sender senor. I am wondering if it is my thermostat or my Relay
Fans. The fans come on when I turn on the defroster. I had a new Radiator put in in Feb I
do not think they put in a new thermostat.

You have me a little confused. Are you talking about your radiator fans under the hood, or the heater/A/C fan that blows air through the vents inside of the car? If your radiator fans are not kicking on, first check your fuses and relays. If those look good, drive the car until it get's up to operating temperature, then turn on your A/C. Pop the hood and check your fans. They should be on. If not, you have an electrical problem. Post back with results.....

Yes i am talking about the fans on in front of the radiator.The fans come on with the A/C. So, I was thinking the Relay Fan Fuses. I did have the Radiator changed in Feb. I do not believe they changed out the thermostat.


Your fans don't run constantly. Only at certain temps. If they came on with the A/C, I would say that they are operating normally. Your overheating issue may be the thermostat like you had thought.

Thank you I will be changing I really hope it works
