coolant level in the rad is full and burped? this has a cable operated heater valve ? It is where the heater hoses are going through into the car? Lifting the cable off and turning the heater valve by hand one way and then the other does and does not allow the heated coolant to pass to and from. putting some lube on the cable can allow the control to move fully where before, it did not go right fully? is that the kind it has? Then you would reattach the cable. Your speed insert for the trans must have a sensor? and an electronic speedometer ? Some toyo kind had sensors and some could have cables. have you a haynes manual?

if the cable sheath it out of range, you can unsnap it, reposition it and snap it back into place. That car is economical and simple to fix for most of its issues that come along. timing belt, seals, waterpump, carb issues, or what have you. It is worth keeping no matter what the issue. the you pull it yard or equivalent in your area has every part at one time or another.
