Customer Question

Hi I have a Toyota avensis and when I start the car the engine temp gets near to red and then drops down to normal within 1 minute and usually stays normal for the rest of the journey. Also my vents have stopped blowing hot air

Hi there,

Have you checked the coolant level recently, not just the recovery tank, but removing the radiator cap as well?

Heater inoperative is a sign of no circulation or low coolant.

If the coolant level is ok, I would be looking at replacing the water pump.
