OVERHEATING

2001 Toyota Camry

Engine Cooling problem
2001 Toyota Camry 4 cyl Two Wheel Drive Automatic 140000 miles

We changed the timing belt and the water pump. The engine is running like it did before. BUt the engine stated to overheat. So we looked at the thermostat- running fine. And we can see that the water pump is running like it should. But it seems like the coolant is not getting to the engine properly. Have we done something wrong?

Hi there,

make sure that the thermostat bleed valve is fitted to the top and try and bleed excess are out of the motor by taking off a heater hose and filling the engine with water and allow it to run out the heater hose, put the hose back on and continue filing, when full run and feel that the heater hoses are both hot, (heater turned on) you may just have an air lock in the engine.
