    Do you have any way to raise the bar in the front? If you do raise the front of the car take the radiator cap off run the engine until it gets hot and then add antifreeze to it replace the radiator cap make sure you fill the overflow tank

The best way is to fill the coolant system, run the engine with the cap off and the heaters on hot until it gets warm . If the water level drops top it up put the cap on , carry on running the engine until the thermostat opens . Shut off engine let it cool once the pressure has dropped take the cap off as it cools the air will come out. Depending on system might have to do it more than once . Make sure the heaters in the car are hot .

Bleeding the air from an engine cooling system is not near as critical as say the braking system. After a radiator is replaced and refilled, new coolant is continually added to the external overflow bottle until the system equalizes as indicated on the "normal" level mark. Since the engines water pump is constantly moving antifreeze under pressure throughout the cooling passages radiator and emissions systems, the negligible amount of air is eventually displaced and vented to the overflow bottle. Some Toyotas do have a high point bleed screw that can be opened to let out the air, but usually only sprays antifreeze all over your engine. Again this small amount of air in the cooling system should not be enough to cause the water pump to cavitate or lose flow. Make sure all hose clamps are tight otherwise air could be drawn in on the suction or low pressure side or antifreeze could leak on the discharge or high pressure side. Good luck!

SOURCE: need marks for timimg belt

On the crankshaft gear there is a VERY small dimple that aligns with a mark on the motor. The mark on the motor (a small triangle) is at roughly 11 o'clock. After you line these timing marks up look at the camshaft gear and you will see that on one of the spokes there is a hole. You need to use a mirror to line this hole up with the dimple on the cover that is behind the camshaft gear. (It is at roughly 1 o'clock) If this hole is 180 degrees from where it should be you need to rotate the motor 1 more revolution at the crankshaft and it should now be lined up, or close. Once lined up I like to take a silver (metallic) Sharpie and make my own mark on the camshaft gear and on the backing plate that is behind it. You can make this mark where ever it is convenient for you. As long as you know where your marks line up, that is all that matters. This way I don't have to use the mirror as often.

  • Step 5 Once you have your timing marks aligned you need to locate the tensioner. The tensioner obviously keeps the appropriate amount of tension on the timing belt.

    SOURCE: Do I need to bleed the system after replacing the radiator cap?

    Definitely recommended - Process is fairly simple, let the vehicle idle and/or reach normal operating temperature - turn the"bleed screw" slightly open and note as the air bubbles escapes from the screw. Also make sure the radiator is topped up with sufficient coolant. Funny enough, the mechanic should have taken care of this process after replacing the thermostat....

    SOURCE: How do I replace 2000 Toyota Camry radiator?

    Let the engine cool down. With a catch can under the radiator unscrew the petcock. It's usually on the bottom drivers side end tank. Next disconnect the fan wiring and remove the fans. Disconnect the upper and lower radiator hoses and the overflow hoses from the radiator. Remove the two transmission cooler lines. Remove the two mounting brackets at the top of the radiator and pull the radiator out. Transfer any parts that aren't included with the new radiator and install radiator. The rest is the reverse of removal. I like to use new hose clamps and fresh antifreeze whenever i change a radiator, but it's up to you. If the original antifreeze isn't too old and you didn't get any transmission fluid in it you could reuse it you want.

    SOURCE: How do I replace a knock sensor for a 1992 toyota

    First, I would like to mention that most knock sensor codes are not caused by the knock sensors, but a mechanical problem with the engine. The knock sensors cannot differentiate between noises caused by mechanical problems like a bad pulley bearing, bad motor mount, noisy alternator bearings, etc. and spark knock. knock sensor codes are set when the computer has retarded the timing as far as possible to compensate for ignition ping (Spark Knock) and the noise still exists.

    With that said, here are the instructions.

    Remove the Intake Chamber assembly.
    Disconnect Injector connectors.
    Disconnect the heater hose from the Intake Manifold.
    Remove the 9 bolts. 2 nuts, 2 plate washers and Intake Manifold assembly.
    Remove right hand engine mounting stay and water outlet.
    Disconnect the following hoses and connectors:
    Radiator inlet hose.
    Engine coolant reservoir hose.
    Engine Coolant Temperature Sensor connector.
    Engine Coolant Temperature Switch connector.
    Ground strap connector.

    Remove the 3 bolts and right hand mounting stay.
    Remove the wire band.
    Disconnect the water bypass hose from the inlet housing.
    Remove the 2 bolts, 2 nuts, 2 plate washers and water outlet.
    Remove the 2 gaskets.
    Disconnect the Knock Sensor connectors.
    Remove the Knock Sensors.

    How can I bleed a air pocket on a 95 Toyota Camry do they have a bleeder valve if so where is it located


    Air pocket in the cooling system i'm assuming?
    Remove radiator cap when the engine has cooled down (verify by collapsing the upper radiator hose to make sure there is no pressure remaining) start the vehicle, turn your climate control to high fan, hottest temp. Add coolant to the radiator as needed. You should have good heat coming out of defrost when the cooling system is successfully bled out.

    OK this is not be a big problem. You have air in your coolant system. The temperature sensor is not immersed in coolant but is in an air pocket. When the engine is cool remove the coolant filler cap. Inside the car switch the heater controls to maximum. Switch the engine on. As the engine gets warmer squeeze the top rubber pipe between the engine and the radiator. Add more coolant to the filler cap to replace the air bubbles when they are expelled. When the engine is near operating temperature screw the coolant cap on tightly. Keep running the engine and keep squeezing the rubber pipes occasionally to help any air bubbles move. Make sure that the bottom rubber hose from the radiator back to the engine gets hot. Ensure that the fan for the radiator is running. Only when you are sure that no more air is in the system do you switch the car interior heater off. Check the coolant level when the engine has again cooled down and add more coolant if it looks low.

    Last summer we had to replace the radiator on my 1993 Toyota Camry LE. We thought that would fix the problem with the car over-heating, but it didn't. The old radiator was corroded. My car still wants...


    the corrosion you noted when you removed the old radiator is throughout the cooling system and is probably causing a blockage in it, he first suspect would be the heater core. When the new radiator was done, did you replace the thermostat too? If you didn't, replace it now, and get a good commercial flush and thoroughly flush out the cooling system, it might save you from having to replace the heater core.

    I really dont think this is a coincidence when you hit the deer it probobly damaged the air conditioning condensor which is just in front of the radiator in the very front of the vehicle there probobly is a leak in the ac system and all your freon leaked out causing the car to only blow hot air , i work for a toyota dealer as a mechanic and and yes it could be a relay or fuse but its just not likely on a 2007 camry ,exspecialy when you were just in an accident you need to have a mechanic test the system they have gauges and ac machine to solve your issue really not a problem you can do yourself due to lack of tools and equipment hope this helps
