Yes, I drove a total of about 800,000 miles in 240D's and really enjoyed them. They are easy to fix and you don't have to fix them very often. They also are very reliable and economical. They are also comfortable for an economy car.

[QUOTE=LarryBible]I've never seen a 240D with an expansion tank. The only ones I can remember seeing only have an overflow hose neatly mounted along the fan shroud to drain on the ground.

This is correct my 240D does not have one, just the overflow hose. I made a overflow tank out of a thick plastic bottle and put the overflow hose in the bottle all the way to the bottom. Now it will give and take coolant from the bottle. It's hot here in FL also and after years of constantly adding to the radiator as it always looses fluid and then runs hot, I rigged up the bottle after noticing that the over flow tanks on Toyotas only have the one hose in them. This will work, just use a thick plastic bottle.

Make sure your AC condensor and radiator is not plugged with small crap...

I saw one 240 where all the cotton from a cottonwood tree plugged her up good and she would heat up real fast.. especially at idle.
