I do not see a good connection between the serpentine belt and the engine overheating suddenly.

Perhaps you have a lot of burnt belt rubber on the water pump pulley?

Is the upper radiator hose hot? If so the stat is opening. If you start the car cold with the radiator cap off you can watch for coolant starting to flow and make sure the stat works...if the flow is low you have either a blocked stat or poor belt grip at the waterpump. Have you flushed the radiator recently? After 15+ years your car could be ready for a cleaning.

How to stop my toyota hi lux from overheating?


-First you have to check that all the radiator fans are running when the water temperature rise
-Then check the thermostat inside the thermostat housing, by removing it. When you soak it in the cold water, the valve should be close and when you soak it in the hot or boiled water, the valve should be open

My 1995 toyota avalon runs about 5 minutes and shuts down,then it takes a hour to crank it back up


Could be your fuel pump. When it runs see if you can hear your fuel pump running, should be a low humming noise towards middle rear of vehicle. When the vehicle goes dead, keep the key in the on postion see if you still hear the fuel pump running. Also while it is running check to see if the temperature gause goes way up. It may be overheating, because of low coolant, or have a bad thermostat sensor and think its overheating and shutting its self off. If these check out it could also be a clogged fuel filter. Without being there its a tough call.

My 1995 toyota avalon is overheating. When this happens, antifreeze fills up my reservoir container, even when I didn't put that much antifreeze in it.


Check to see if there is water in the oil...If there is water in the oil then it could have a head gasket problem..Did you ever replace the thermostat? If it is stuck then it would also cause overheating...Excessive exhaust backpressure because of a clogged catalytic converter could also cause overheating..Also check belt tension and condition. A loose belt that slips may prevent the water pump from circulating coolant fast enough and/or the fan from turning fast for proper cooling...Another thing it could be is a faulty Water pump -- Any wobble in the pump shaft or seepage would call for replacement. In some instances, a pump can cause an engine to overheat if the impeller vanes are badly eroded due to corrosion or if the impeller has come loose from the shaft. The wrong pump may also cause an engine to overheat. Some engines with serpentine drive belts require a special water pump that turns in the opposite direction of those used on the same engine with ordinary V-belts... Also check the Fan -- With mechanical fans, most overheating problems are caused by a faulty fan clutch, though a missing fan shroud can reduce the fan's cooling effectiveness by as much as 50% (depending on the fan's distance from the radiator) which may be enough to cause the engine to overheat in hot weather or when working hard.
