  • Are you sure your system has the 50/50 water/coolant mixture? Some guy adds water to your system, you add some coolant, are you sure you have the right ratios? And you didn't mention if Toyota checked this, you just said they burped the system, cleaned the AC, and changed the oil (motor oil?) None of that has to do with the engine coolant.

    Is it overheating while driving, or does it happen when you get stopped in traffic? (or both)
