Engine Cooling problem
1986 Toyota Camry 4 cyl Front Wheel Drive Automatic 210, 00 miles
When driving to work this morning(temp 75), went approx 3 miles and temp was ok (gauge at Half), but in the next 3/4 mile suddenly went up to H. I parked it and walked the rest of the way.
Coming home (temp 95), it did fine (Guage at half).
1--I DID have A/C on on the way home (and both fans were working)
After I got home, I noticed both fans were running.
I turned A/C OFF and neither fan was running (gauge still hovering around half).
2--Had NEW Radiator cap both times.
Would this be thermostat or temp sensor to control fan---How can I tell the difference?
