Toyota Tercel 1984-1994 Repair Guide

Cooling System


One of the most common, if not the most common, problems associated with trailer towing is engine overheating.

The cooling system should be checked frequently and maintained in top notch condition. If the engine temperature gauge indicates overheating, particularly on long grades, immediately turn off the air conditioner (if in use), pull off the road and stop in a safe location. Do not attempt to "limp in'' with a hot motor-you may cause severe damage.
