I have a 1996 toyota tacoma 4cy. And I have a overheating problem. I flushed the radiator and changed the thermostac and I have the same problem! Besides the radiator. What else can it be? I will be changing the radiator but I just wanted to know if there's anything else I should be looking for! Thanks
Do you

Have a look on my grocery list could be one of them:

Have it block and pressure tested-do the block first to pinpoint a combustion leaking into the cooling system or a gas analyzer to sniff for hydrocarbons at the radiator fill neck.

Pressure test: do not do a pressure test if there's leakage at the headgasket this might cause coolant into the cylinders and lock it up or bend a connecting rod if cranked thereafter. The headgasket should be repaired before doing the pressure test.

If the block and pressure test passes check the following: Thermostat,Pressure test the Rad. cap,Clogged radiator,Fan clutch,Radiator electrical fan,relays, temperature switch,collaspe hoses,water pump and air lock.

Meantime I'll be taking
