Re: 2001 Camry 5SFE random overheating

It is funny, we can drive around town for an hour and it is fine, but the moment we hop on the highway and go above 50 mph it overheats!

Re: The Air Conditioning thread...

When I converted mine to 134, it was being all funky so I ended up replacing the evaporator, expansion valve, and drier. Then replaced the compressor and it has worked great since!

Re: 2001 Camry 5SFE random overheating

Ah, well, the engine also burns quite a bit of oil too, despite the nice compression, so it probably needs a rebuild. There's also a lot more involved in getting the head off of this beast compared to a tercel, where if you take the engine out, everything just comes out in one go. Timewise, I don't ...

Re: 2001 Camry 5SFE random overheating

Kind of thinking about just getting another engine at this point.

For now though she's fine around town it's only on the highway she over heats.

Re: 2001 Camry 5SFE random overheating

Tried the best bars leaks head gasket sealer, at $48 for the bottle and it did not work. The 100% guarantee did work however and I got a refund!

The head bolts are torque to yield. Could I remove one, torque a new one, and repeat in sequence?

Re: Need a rocker arm shaft

I do have the entire head the rocker arms are on but I imagine it would not be cheap to ship.

With that said, you could have it for the cost of shipping and handling!

Re: Need a rocker arm shaft

Rocker arm is what the cylinder head has to run the valves right? I have an old head that has the rocker arms that might work might not it's been stored outside a while so you have to clean it up.

It seems that upgrading the forum and being able to use better anti spam tools put a big dampner on the amount of spam Bots getting in.

Re: Tercel Part blowout! EVERYTHING must go!

I do still have both timing belt kits!

I do not think I have a rocker arm shaft, but will look. Refresh my memory, where is the rocker arm? (didn't sleep much last night)

Re: 2001 Camry 5SFE random overheating

Okay, this head most likely has not been touch since it was brand new but I will look into if the bolts are torque to yield or not. I've looked into the head gasket sealers and I think I will give one of them a try. The bars leak one seems to be the best combination of good reviews and you can use i...

Re: 2001 Camry 5SFE random overheating

So you're saying that even if the compression is fine, the head gasket could still be acting up.

What are the chances something is cracked instead?

I do have almost just water in the system now, I might drain it a few more times then give a sealer a try.

Re: 2001 Camry 5SFE random overheating

Forgot to mention there was white crud on all four spark plugs too. Will have to get the wife to drive behind me and look for white smoke! It maybe ate a few ounces of water today. Idle is rough at times which I have read can be water leaking into the combustion chamber. Could it be the headgasket i...
