What could be making my 1992 toyota celica overheat


Asked by Nov 22, 2015 at 10:49 AM about the 1992 Toyota Celica GT Coupe

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

It overheated recently.  Lost most of
its fluid.  Steamed off didn't spill out.  I
took off upper radiator hose and had
no flow.  I put new thermostat in, no
change.  I flushed radiator no
obstruction.  I just took off the water
pump and it seems to be working fine.  
What else should I check?  Thanks

Is your radiator dirty internally? I also suspect that you may have a blown head gasket - check for oil in the radiator and water in the engine oil. You also may need a new radiator cap. If your car has an electric fan make sure it is working properly.


Thanks for your help. It was the head gasket and the water ports in the head were cloged up with sediment. Thanks again
