    Engine & Drivetrain
    I don’t know what it’s called, but I need to know the inside diameter of the hose that comes off the radiator at the location of the radiator cap and feeds into and/or out from the coolant reservoir tank.

  2. Added coolant, it spewed, now I don't have heat?

    Last weekend, I was looking over my fluid levels, belt and hose conditions in my 97 Avalon and noticed that I didn't have any coolant in my reservoir. I topped it off to the Min mark. On my way to work this morning, I noticed that my temp gauge was getting hotter than it's ever been so I...

    Hey guys/gals- I searched for an appropriate thread, but couldn't really find one, so I'm starting a new one. Obviously- I'm needing some advice. My dealership did some work on my pickup @ the end of July. About 2 weeks later, it would have a little trouble starting- just a slightly slower start...
  7. Do you have to remote the thermostat to flush cooling system in '97?

    I've got a 97 XLS (V6) and have drained the radiator and block of its coolant. The Haynes manual says to do a flush but removing the thermostat but does that *really* need to be done? Thanks!
