Find out where you're leaking. Anything that causes the coolant to leak out is cause for concern. Fill the radiator. Leave the radiator cap off and start the engine. Watch for bubbles. If there are quite a few bubbles and the coolant wants to blow out even before the engine gets warm, you might have a head gasket problem.

The top radiator hose is above the thermostat. If the top radiator hose is hot, the thermostat is opening. The thermostat is not the problem. Perhaps the radiator is clogged up or the water pump is bad. Look elsewhere.

You replaced the thermostat and radiator cap and its still hot?

first, make certain the thermostat is not installed backwards, if still hot then remove a radiator hose and see if coolant is discharged with pressure behind it(this checks the water pump); it is also a good idea to flush the cooling system; make sure there is not debris in front of the radiator; beyond all this you may just have to have a professional diagnose it

How do you replace the thermostat located on a 1993 Toyota Camry 4 cylinder?

my 1993 Toyota Camry radiator had a hole in it it was overheating. I replaced the radiator. The car is still overheating where is the thermostat located. First, drain your coolant from the radiator. Find your lower radiator hose and follow it to the metal housing. This is the thermostat housing. Remove the 2 nuts with a 10mm wrench. Remove the thermostat and replace with new one and new gasket. Re-install and re-fill your radiator with new coolant. Drive the car with heater running. Allow the engine to cool and top off the radiator. Add coolant to the reservoir to halfway between Full and Low.

Radiator crack car overheating replaced radiator ran car for a week then the car overheated again should I replace the water pump what should I do?

I would suspect the thermostat is the culprit. Replace the thermostat. definately replace the thermostat, get a new gasket and all. Also, start the car cold and see if the inlet hose to the radiator warms up evenly. if it gets really hot on the engine side of the hose and is still cool by the radiator that means that there is no flow and either the thermo is installed wrong or something is clogged
