#158 of 727 1993 toyota camry overheating
Jul 05, 2008 (6:41 pm)
This car is driving me crazy. Its over heating. I am slightly disabled and discouraged. I pulled the thermostat because i thought it was stuck. I can see water still flowing so i am assuming the water pump is working, the fans dont seemed to want to come on, i checked the fuses, and they are good. Today i went out there because i read somewhere that you can pull the caps off the relays and see if they are working well i did with my test light and the fans came on. But the car still wasnt cooling down, temp was rising. Im not a mechanic but a simple parts changer but i know how things are sopposed to work. I cant figure this out. Does anyone have anything else i can check?
Thank you for your time

Not at all normal. My '04 Camry has 53K miles and the a/c is fine. My 10-year-old Nissan Frontier still has working air.
I think you have almost no choice but have a qualified mechanic take a look. You don't have to go to the dealer, since the car is out of warranty. Get recommendations from friends, relatives, or co-workers.

I have no idea what it is, but if rare, I wouldn't worry about it.

Is the high pitch coming from the flasher unit, or does it sound like it's coming from the radio as interference?
You might just want to buy a new turn signal flasher, they're cheap.

I rode for 2months. That is not my car. It's a my sister's car. But It's my first car in US. It's a very old car. It ran 12miles. In spite of, engine is very soft and strong. Now I ride chevrolet cobalt 2006. But camry is stronger than cobalt. Of course, they have different horsepower. But feel is different.

Your 1993 Camry overheat.
I think you got the water in okay. Well you said you took out the thermostat so it should not overheat unless the pumps got a small leak. Its way over on the left side as your looking at the engine. I think its under those black covers and makes it hard to detect leaks. I usally get on the ground and look up at the belt pullelys, for any corroded water trails. The water usually evaporates before you discover it. When my wife gets home Ill look at ours, it its a V6.
Abused cars with clogged radiators will over heat on freeways but if yours is heating up at idle it sounds like the relay fans. A simple paper clip across the relay connector will make the fan come on, either hot or cold. Remove the relay and then jump the two farthest terminals on the wire bundle side or allthe terminals until the fan comes on. I have a cheap test light I usually jump across the live terminal to the other terminal with a paper clip hooked on the alligator clip end of this tester. A single clip and no tester gets hot in your hand from the current draw.
The relay is always on the outside of car in the engine compartment.
Ill make this topic watched on MySpace page. Let me know how far you get.

Looking at water pump for V-6 Camry 1993
Its hard to pick up leak without removing black covers. A short cut to test for this leak is find a shop that does alot of radiator repairs they might have a pressure testor. It takes 2 min to remove the cap and put this tester on. It should hold pressure for at least 15 minutes.
#167 of 727 '95 camry 5spd...What should it idle at?
Jul 18, 2008 (7:13 pm)
I know, I know....I posted a message about purchasing the '95...and yes, I did buy it. I love it so far, but I have a (hopefully) small problem.
I had a '96 neon 5 spd (awww, it was my first stick, such wonderful memories:0) ) and I was told it was supposed to idle either at 1,000rpm or just a hair above that. So I guess I made that into my own rule of thumb since then.
This '95 camry (I just noticed today) seems to idle below that, say around 800 (alright, if you were to look at the tach. it would be right smack between "0" and "1"). When the air runs, it idles higher, which seems to help ease the vibrating I get when it sits at a light with no air on. The arrow bobs up and down slightly as I sit at a light but never fully reaches the "1". It doesn't seem serious, but it's enough to bother me....any idea's and how I might fix it? Is it lack of power from something like the battery or....? Thanks for your help!
