I have it sent to carmax for the warranty. They said they donít work on engines. Then I had it sent to Toyota for the work. They called me and said it was a engine failure. Then call back 2 hour later and said there was no coolant. Brand new engine cost 17k. I start doing research and notice a recall on my car. I tell them it could be a recall. And they said due to there being no coolant it would be considered neglect. I reported it to highways safety association. That a company wonít do my recall. I have a few questions.
If a car doesnít have coolant would the car last 15 minute being on?
Next isnít there a safety shutoff for the car when it hits a certain temperature?

No I donít race the car nor speed. I am still paying it off.
Also, The recall pertains to valve springs not anything related to coolant. So if you are losing coolant you have another problem. Good luck hope you get this sorted out.
