It is important to maintain the proper fluids in a vehicle. A 1997 Toyota Corolla XL uses 10W30 type oil.
Yes, your fluids should be flushed every so often.
AnswerHave you checked the fluids (e.g. oil, coolant, transmission fluid)? When the car is working harder--as in driving faster-- it generates more heat. The car sheds heat through its fluids. If the fluids are full then it sounds like the coolant is restructed. Take it to a radiator shop.
Type of fluid should be on the oil filler cap. Probably one of the ATF fluids.
Urine because you can change the fluids often.
change the wiper fluids, or get it checked out
I had mine changed out in an hour, that includes draining the fluids.
A radiator is defective if fluids are leaking out of the radiator or there is a leak of steam. Or, if thecore is blocked, the radiator will remain cold or just slightly warm in places.
I would guess: -New belts including timing -flush all fluids (radiator, brake, transmission, etc) -replace spark plugs and wires
If you can unbolt the cooler then unbolt it whatever way is easiest. Then remove the radiator. If it is part of the radiator itself then drain the radiator first completely and then disconnect the tranny lines and try to plug them if possible or put then draining into a container. Dont want to mix the fluids. Then remove the radiator. That should be it. That is way that I have done it before.
Unbolt and remove the top cover, or metal shroud. This will give you access to the radiator. Remove the rad. hoses and trans. lines. Unplug and/or remove the two fans ( I left them on the radiator when I removed the radiator) then unbolt the radiator and lift out of the car. It will be somewhat heavy if you do not have the fluids drained from it. I assume you need to get the tanks repaired due to leaking.
Five quarts of oil with filter change (don't know radiator and other fluids capacities)
In a radiator, the fluids get really hot, when things get hot they expand and then they have to go somewhere, the fluid goes into an overflow.
the shop said it would cost around 400.00,labor about 2 hours and fluids and radiator
2002 Toyota 4Runner Sport I use Mobil 1 15w50 synthetic with 5k change intervals; all other fluids are replaced using Red Line Racing synthetic products.
This happens on new cars as well as older models, when the car warms up the idle should drop. When its cold the fluids in the motor get thick so it works alittle harder until it thins out with the heat
Fluids flow under an action of a force.Fluids lack the ability to resist deformation.Fluids change shape as long as a force acts.
Temperature, Pressure and Fluids, such as Magmatic Fluids.
liquids and gases (apex)
Maybe a blown head gasket. fix it quickly.
in the oil pan you have drain radiator and tranny fluids first
No, but some autos use the radiator to cool transmission fluid. It circulates within its own plumbing, and the fluids never commingle.
On a 2001 GMC Savana 5.7 V8. There is no drain plug. You actually have to remove the big hose that joins the engine to the radiator. This will drain out all the fluids.
The transmission oil cooler inside the radiator is no good and allowing the fluids to mix. Not a good situation, don't drive it until it is fixed.
