The corolla had an option for a cd player. I never seen the optional cd player. Don’t know if it was a single din or it was double din.

Is your coolant overflow container cracked? That’s not normal. Would need to replace it.

Wait, that’s not for coolant. That’s for the windshield wiper fluid

Ok looked like the washer fluid.

Are you experiencing any cooling issues? Overheating?

No opposite getting warm and guage 1/2 as it should be but only warm and no air coming out of driver side floor vent
No you don’t. Have you ever even seen an 8 track player? The last one I saw

What year is your Toyota? You may have a rare and very valuable radio/8track player! You may want to have an antique dealer give you an appraisal! If you can find an 8 track tape somewhere, you may want to check to see if it [the player] is still functioning. I'm guessing your Toyota is 40-50 years old! How many miles has it put on during the last 4 or 5 decades?

I doubt that is an 8 track tape deck, probably is cassette. I have a radio in my 1999 Tacoma truck that has an option for an external CD player and in fact I added one. I am going to put the same kind of installation in my 1997 Celica, since the CD in the radio has quit. I did have an aftermarket radio back in the early 90's that had a "CD" button but in reality it was a cover you pulled off to insert the audio plug from a portable CD player.

A breather hole is ok in your overflow since the vacuum from the radiator sucks fluid from the bottom, ditto with the wind screen fluid.
Don't sell that 8track remote unit that plays CD's is a real gem bro. Big demand $ for this, casettes are so so.

Sorry Steve.
