I was losing coolant in a 1997 Toyota Corolla
last October and the radiator
was replaced. The next morning, the overflow tank was empty and the repair shop said there was air in the line. I have still been losing coolant in various amounts, daily, for the last 6 months, more coolant when the overflow tank lid is on tight, less coo[lant if cap is not on tight. The dashboard temperature gauge registers in the middle. Even though the temperature gauge does not indicate overheating, it is extremely hot under the hood and inside the car after I drive the car. I think that it needs the coolant temperature sensor to be replaced. Should anything else be checked? The check engine
light is not on.
JA: Sometimes things that you think will be really complicated end up being easy to fix with Toyota. The Toyota Mechanic I'm going to connect you with knows all the tricks and shortcuts. Are you hoping to fix this yourself?
Customer: No. I plan to take it into a repair shop.
JA: OK! The Toyota Mechanic will help you with the diagnostics so you are sure to get this fixed right. Is there anything else important you think the Toyota Mechanic should know about your Toyota?
Customer: It has 248,000 miles on it, but other than the coolant problem, drives well, with no history of major mechanical problems.
JA: OK. Got it. I'm sending you to a secure page on JustAnswer so you can place the $5 fully-refundable deposit now. While you're filling out that form, I'll tell the Toyota Mechanic about your situation and then connect you two.
