? I am simply draining the coolant in the radiator, so I have two gallons of pink coolant. I assume that I can just drain the radiator and fill it back up , with the pink and at least have some fresh coolant with no worries about freeze protection since it is all premixed. We should not have had to pay this much for a repair on this type of car, whether or not the warranty is expired. The vehicle was not repaired. The vehicle was taken to another independent mechanic where the contact was informed the engine needed to be replaced.
The pink is only sold pre-diluted. Make sure to check your engine when it is cold for an accurate reading. The speaker clips have little metal retainers that can get stuck in the hole. The current and the failure mileages were 135,000. We have always owned Toyotas with no problems. If you wanted to remove the speedo panel, you just take off the screws by the driver door side and off it comes.
I could not find any close to that in stores. I went on the internet and found that I am not alone with this problem. Should I mix it half and half? I took it to the dealership and had two tech's ride with me and they experienced the jerking but couldn't determine what it was. All routine maintenance is performed on a regular basis. The car was pulled over and stopped.
The vehicle was taken to a local mechanic where the water pump was replaced; however, the failure recurred. The vehicle was taken to a private mechanic where the mechanic confirmed that the head gasket needed to be replaced. If the thermostat sticks open, the coolant doesn't absorb much heat because it just flows right through and out of the engine. Additionally, we have access to the paperwork from our local mechanic who has routinely done the oil checks since we've had the car. My 2002 Camry xle had about 98,000 miles on it at the time, which is not a lot by Toyota standards. When driving, the slipstream air flows through the radiator and cools it way down, and there isn't enough heat left in the coolant to warm the climate air.
While examining the vehicle the contact noticed a puddle of coolant underneath the vehicle where it was parked. I stopped at the Toyota dealer, and they said the 2006 has Toyota pink coolant, which is premixed. Toyota refuses to admit that this line of cars has defective head bolts. In any case I keep a gallon of their pr-mixed stuff handy for topping up, which has not been necessary yet in 25,000 miles. Coolant, or anti-freeze, is the substance in your 2001 Toyota Camry that absorbs the heat exuded from your engine, and dispels it through the radiator. Do you really need to use coolant sold by Toyota? I put in green Prestone. They buy it from one of the 3 manufacturers and put their name on it.
Also have the system pressure tested by a shop and put on a rack to check for signs of leaking under the car. I expected much more from Toyota than we have presently experienced and am very disappointed and frustrated. Take it or leave it, I guess. You need a flat screwdriver or some flat soft edged tool to remove the trims, and a Philips head screwdriver to open the screws. Now the jerking is getting worse and is happening at all speeds. It takes about 2 gallon of coolant for flush and replace.
This is clearly a defect on Toyota's part and needs to be compensated for. I need some guidance on the type of coolant to use. You need to drain and flush out your current coolant first. The national office offered to call my dealership, which they did, I don't know what they'll do for me since last time they told me until a check engine light comes on they can't do anything. One month after the vehicle was repaired the failure recurred. The contact was informed that due to this failure, the engine ran at a low temperature and the head gasket failed. Water boils at 100'C so you need antifreeze mixed with it but antifreeze does not have the same heat transfer as water so you cannot run 100% antifreeze cause it does not transfer heat fast enough and you over heat.
Gently tease out the clips and put it away from scratch danger. The mechanic told the contact that the problem was common with his particular model. For this age of a car, and supposedly being the most reliable and highly rated car for that year this should not have happened. Have spares - those things are super fragile. The mechanic informed him that the head bolts were stripped and the head gasket had blown. The technician recommended that the engine be replaced due to the defective cylinder head bolts.
