    Default Prado unuasual overheating

    Model: Prado 4.0 V6
    Year: 2004
    Mileage: 195000km
    Problem: This is a curious case of overheating. Overheating only occurs after long distance driving (140km/h +) for a period of 300km or more. Whilst driving the engine stays cool, only once i slow down in a town or road block does the heat gauge rise. once i take off again or keep the vehicle in neutral at 2000rpm or more does the heat gauge stabilize. The problem occurred at 178000km, this does not happen during local driving. After long distance it takes liquid in the radiator, but the water bottle stays full. in actual fact the water bottle kicks out liquid through the overflow pipe. Toyota has replaced the radiator and thermostat and the problem still occurs. Toyota has checked the viscous fan and water pump and somehow no one can find the cause of the problem. Again, during local driving the engine stays normal.
