2001 Toyota Hilux 5L Engine w/ CT20 Turbo Overheating!! Recently I have undergone a full engine recondition on my 5L, cost $3,750! , everything on the engine was immaculate upon return and install. I have also installed a CT20 Turbo, in great condition and followed all correct procedures to ensure the best performance and safest also. I have a put an TOP MOUNT intercooler, and a brand new radiator to go with all of the money i have spent. I have had one issue overall with the mods i have performed and after spending the money I have been dissapointed to find that under load or travelling uphill, my coolant temperature sensor on the in car guage is reading above 100 at times and boiling at 105 degrees. I have also a thermo fan installed. which i have hard wired to a switch so i am able to leave it on all the time. I have also taken it away to have it Dyno Tuned, not for maximum performace but just a tune, and since then it seems its been a bit worse off than it was before i took it? WOULD REMOVING THE AIR CONDITIONER RADIATOR MAKE ANY DIFFERENCE ON THE HEAT/ AIR FLOW AS I AM CURRENTLY NOT USING IT? OR SHOULD I PUT BACK IN THE GENUINE RADIATOR? HAS ANYONE HAD ANY OTHER PROBLEMS AS SUCH AND IF SO. Please Help!
Hi, Corolla ZRE152, 2007 - Just installed new genuine rear brake pads and they overheat only after 10km drive. Had the discs machined and re-installed but the issue persists. Could it be sticky calipers? I had great trouble pushing the pistons back in both times to make room for the new pads. Had to use all my strength on a clamp. On other cars used to push them in with a hammer handle.
Hey guys, Im in dire need of assistance I have been slowling working on my recently purchasd ST184R and getting everything back into tip top shape, when I have found the thermostat was mounted around the wrong way from one of the previous owners, of course blocking water flow and making the car over heat. I have fixed that issue but the one issue I cant solve is my thermofan will not turn on, I tested it by connecting it to battery terminals and it worked perfectly, my water pump seems to be working, thermostat is fine, all I can guess is that my fan switch is busted, I can not locate where the thermo fan switch is, and Im doing my head in trying to solve this issue, I'd rather not try and rewire or hardwire it to an ignition or anything, I would like to get it fixed properly and preferably by myself. if any one knows or has any sugestions please let me know, what they think car details 1991 ST184R 5sfe 2.2L Manual 2 door coupe gt. ignore the ignition leads,I have replaced them lol.
