Should you replace the radiator in a 1995 Toyota Camry right away if there is a crack in the top but it is not overheating at all?

I would say yes. Think of it this way. Your cooling system is under pressure. When the car is heating up it will build up alot of pressure and eventually the crack will get bigger. And if your car over heats , it could get pretty costly to repair a cracked head.Plus be stranded on the side of the highway somewhere. It may be a pain right now and go why bother, but for about 100 bucks are less get it replaced and in the end you might save 500 bucks or more plus the car in the shop and believe me I work in a mechanics shop and we don't charge you cheap. I see so many engines go bad because People do not change there oil regulary. I much would pay 20 bucks for an oil change every 3,000 miles then to spend. $1,000- $3,000 on a new motor. It's up to you. Don't replace it and it will cost you more, or Replace now and save.... Up to you. Hope that helps out some.

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.

There may be other reasons for the vehicle to be overheating but yes if you have let the reservoir run dry then it wont have suction to draw fluid back into the radiator so you will have to fill the radiator as well.
