The following may indicate that your vehicle is overheating.
(For example, the vehicle speed does not increase.)
Stop the vehicle in a safe place and turn off the air conditioning system, and then stop the engine.
If you see steam: Carefully lift the hood after the steam subsides.
If you do not see steam: Carefully lift the hood.
After the engine has cooled down sufficiently, inspect the hoses and radiator core (radiator) for any leaks.
If a large amount of coolant leaks, immediately contact your Toyota dealer.
The coolant level is satisfactory if it is between the “F” and “L” lines on the reservoir.
Add coolant if necessary.
Water can be used in an emergency if coolant is unavailable.
Start the engine and turn the air conditioning system on to check that the radiator cooling fans operate and to check for coolant leaks from the radiator or hoses.
The fans operate when the air conditioning system is turned on immediately after a cold start. Confirm that the fans are operating by checking the fan sound and air flow. If it is difficult to check these, turn the air conditioning system on and off repeatedly.
(The fans may not operate in freezing temperatures.) STEP 7
If the fans are not operating: Stop the engine immediately and contact your Toyota dealer.
If the fans are operating: Have the vehicle inspected at the nearest Toyota dealer.
Wait until the engine has cooled down before adding engine coolant.
When adding coolant, do so slowly. Adding cool coolant to a hot engine too quickly can cause damage to the engine.
Observe the following precautions:
