Engine Cooling problem
1990 Toyota Corolla 4 cyl Two Wheel Drive Automatic 75000 miles
I have a 1990 Toyota Corolla that was overheating.
I flushed the radiator and removed the thermostat by recommendation to test if the thermostat was the issue and it still overheats only when I am climbing a hill.
There is little oil leaking on top of the transmission case just below the distributor. I had just replaced the distributor and plugs about 3 mths ago and the car drove like a dream. Now it misses because I hear a little clacking sound when I first give it the gas. Maybe the plugs are getting fouled by a oil leak. I removed the oil cap and there was some back pressure. Could this be a small leak in the head gasket? I have no water in the oil and not much loss of oil at all. It starts hitting the red while going uphill.
have the same problem?
