PROCEDURE


  1. INSPECT FOR COOLANT LEAK

    CAUTION:

    To avoid being burned, do not remove the radiator cap while the engine and radiator are still hot. Thermal expansion may cause hot engine coolant and steam to blow out from the radiator.


    1. Fill the radiator with engine coolant, and then attach a radiator cap tester.

    2. Warm up the engine.

    3. Using the radiator cap tester, increase the pressure inside the radiator to 123 kPa (1.3 kgf/cm2, 18 psi), and then check that the pressure does not drop.

      If the pressure drops, check the hoses, radiator and engine water pump for leakage. If there are no signs or traces of external engine coolant leakage, check the heater core, cylinder block and head.

  2. INSPECT ENGINE COOLANT LEVEL


    1. The engine coolant should be between the L and F lines when the engine is cold.

      If the engine coolant is below the L line, check for leakage and add TOYOTA Super Long Life Coolant (SLLC) or similar high quality ethylene glycol based non-silicate, non-amine, non-nitrite, non-borate coolant with long-life hybrid organic acid technology to the F line.

      Note

      Do not substitute plain water for engine coolant.

  3. INSPECT ENGINE COOLANT QUALITY

    CAUTION:

    To avoid being burned, do not remove the radiator cap while the engine and radiator are still hot. Thermal expansion may cause hot engine coolant and steam to blow out from the radiator.


    1. Remove the radiator cap.

    2. Check for excessive deposits of rust or scales around the radiator cap and radiator reservoir filler hole. Also, the engine coolant should be free of oil.

      If excessively dirty, replace the engine coolant.

    3. Install the radiator cap.
