Overheating

Asked by Oct 22, 2018 at 01:33 AM about the 2001 Toyota Camry CE

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Would my car keep overheating just
because the overflow tank has a
crack in it? I also see leak under car
but can’t see where it’s at when I look
under the hood

Overflow tank holds coolant that when temperature goes down, refills the radiator. could this alone cause overheating? There is a very remote possibility. Typical causes of overheating are a bad water pump, thermostat going bad, clog in system caused by a collapsed hose, excessive air in cooling system, clogged up radiator, or defective coolant temperature sensor (ECT). You can solve this by taking the car to a mechanic and find out what's actually going on before you destroy the engine.
