Running hot will cause head gasget to fail. Or if head is not torqued properly, or a faulty head gasget. Pressure in cooling system means, blown head gasget or cracked head.

Hi there. It sounds like you have done the most obvious checks and I can assure you by-passing the heater core will have no effect. There are three possible causes that you need to investigate further and you will need specialist equipment for it - you either have a hair-line crack in the head or cylinder wall or it might be that the head bolts are stretched and therefore weakened and so need replacement. To help you identify these aforementioned possible problems, you might need a specialist fluid that you put into the cooling system which changes colour when combustion chamber pressure enters the cooling system, you need to contact your local Ford Dealer for this - but then you still have the three possible problems to deal with - cracked cylinder wall/s, cracked head or stretched head bolts. Hope this helps, Scottech.

Another item worth checking on '92-95 V6 Camry's is the power steering fluid. The radiator fan is hydraulic and runs off the power steering fluid and power steering pump. If your fluid level is low, it might not have affected your steering, but it could have prevented the fan from coming on when necessary.

The 3100 and the 3400 are noted for the intake gasket going out. You can usually see it leaking at the left front and right rear of the intake as you sit in the car. Look along the slanted area of the intake manifold where it joins with the heads. If you are tight on money, the repair is generally around 5-700 dollars, buy Bars Leak Head repair. It will take two days to fix, however if you follow the directions to the letter, you will not have the problem again. I have repaired head gaskets that were literally leaking water that you could see and two years later it is still running. Remember to follow every step on the bottle to the letter or you have wasted your time. The only one you do not have to worry about is the step where it tells you to remove the plug at the cylinder that is leaking since you are not leaking at a cylinder.
Hope this helps
