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.
There are multiple reasons for overheating including by not limited to:low coolant levelhead gasket is gonefaulty thermostatradiator is not working properlyfan has failed etc
It is spec for a Toyota and is the only coolant you should use
You can use universal coolant which you can find in any auto parts store, or you can use a coolant for Japanese card, or you can go and get coolant at a local Toyota dealer.
how much engine coolant dosee a 2000 toyota corolla hold
I use the genuine 'Toyota Long life Coolant' it is red in colour
To flush the coolant in a 2002 Toyota Echo you will need to drain it first. Flush with fresh water and then refill with coolant and distilled water.
If there's no leak, an overheat is caused by a problem with coolant level, coolant circulation, or heat transfer. Fill the coolant level. If the problem recurs within a month, it was something other than low level. Circulation problems are caused by clogged radiators, bad water pumps, non-functioning thermostats.
The 1993 Toyota coolant temperature sensor can be found on the front of the engine. The coolant temperature sensor will be a few inches above the thermostat housing.
Toyota Long Life coolant. Pricey. Any brand name ethylene-glycol based coolant, mixed 50/50 would be OK.

The 2003 Toyota Camry coolant temperature sensor can be found on top of the engine. The coolant temperature sensor will be near the center of the exhaust manifold.
Your 1999 Toyota Corolla can use any SAE certified anti-freeze coolant. The anti-freeze coolant can be mixed half-and-half with water.
The 2006 Toyota coolant temperature sensor is located on the front of the engine. The coolant temperature sensor will be a few inches above the thermostat housing.
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.
Any brand coolant will work.

Some possibilities: Cooling system thermostat has failed - water pump is failing or has failed - the radiator is clogged up - incorrect mixture ratio of water to coolant fluid.
The cooling fans may not be working. Check fuses. The thermostat could be stuck shut. The coolant could be low. Too new of a car to be overheating unless coolant has not been changed. The OEM Toyota long life coolant is a very good product, but I wouldn't leave it in for 100,000 miles.The condenser in front of the radiator could also be damaged by rocks and/or bugs. The aluminum fins are easily damaged.
The coolant temperature sensor on a 2001 Toyota RAV4 is located on the exhaust manifold. It is on the driver's side of the manifold.
Check your owner's manual. It recommends Toyota brand longlife (red) coolant. Toyota coolant is 'similar' to GM's Dexcool (orange) but the chemical makeup is slightly different. Do NOT use standard (green) Ethylene Glycol coolant unless you completely drain and flush (at least twice) your cooling system. Cheers
Do you mean overheating? Is steam coming out? It could just be a bad thermostat, if so, replace it. Have you checked your coolant level? Have you changed your coolant? You may possibly need a new water pump (change the serpentine belt at the same time).
completely drained out it should take 1 3/4 gallons of TOYOTA coolant. I emphasize TOYOTA, because it is the best coolant out there. I was a Toyota technician and saw many problems with cheap aftermarket products such as alternators, starters, brakes, and even coolant. I hope you got what you were looking for.
You have a blown headgasket.
