I have a 1987 Toyota Tercel wagon, 4WD. Last year it started overheating, it was dumping fluid out of the radiator to the overflow tank. I found a small hole in the radiator and patched it with epoxy weld, it worked fine for 6 months. Then started overheating again, same issue, dumping the fluid, which I understand is caused when the radiator has a leak and is not holding pressure. I found another leak and welded it, but it is still overheating. I am going to get a new radiator, as the one I have is obviously shot.
My question is could there be anything else causing this problem that a new radiator wouldn't fix? Like the thermostat?
