Engine Cooling problem
1993 Toyota Corolla 4 cyl Front Wheel Drive Automatic 200, 00 miles
Hi, I recently got involved with helping someone down on there luck. I have been a mechanic for over 25 years but retired my tools over 10 years ago. My question is.
No coolant in oil
No coolant (white smoke) out tail pipe
no external leaks
But extreme amout of steam in cooling system.
Im thinking head gasket but the leak seems to be one way and that is from hot exhaust gas to cooling system.
car runs good but coolant gets evaporated quickly.
is it a head gasket or a cracked head and is there any way on this particular engine to narrow it down before dissassembly. If it were a head gasket I would attempt the job but if the head has to be replaced it will be junked.
have the same problem?
