OVERHEATING

2001 Lexus IS 300

Engine Cooling problem
2001 Lexus IS 300 6 cyl Two Wheel Drive Automatic 135000 miles

My car is overheating after I already replaced the rad cap. I have no idea what else it could be. It dose have water in it. Do I need anti-freeze? Or no. The water also get spit out of the rad.

Hi there,

Replace the thermostat and check that the cooling fans are working, also it is a good idea to have the radiator cleaned & flow tested by a radiator repairer.
