Asked by Mar 18, 2015 at 01:03 PM about the 1999 Toyota Camry Solara 2 Dr SLE V6 Coupe

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

1 Answer

142,895

Does the overheating have any correlation with highway, 65mph driving and stop-and-go traffic? Mileage? And has it ever had a water pump changed? What does the coolant look like? Dark red? I know, full of questions but that information will help me try to figure this out
