I have a 1990 Toyota 4wd pickup 5 speed trans with a 22 RE engine that has 168000 miles on it. I recently started having a problem. What s happening is as I drive the coolant is going into the overflow tank and spilling out but it wont go back into the radiator on it's own like the coolant recovery system should work. There is no water in the oil and the coolant is still a nice green color. No smoke out of the exhaust and the tempereture only comes up to about 1/4 on the guage even when driving uphill. It has a new thermostat and radiator cap and the radiator is only a year old. I did have the timing cover and chain replaced about a year ago because the chain wore a hole into the cover and the coolant was leaking into the oil. I am at a loss as to what the problem could be. Any help would be really appreciated.
have the same problem?
