    Just a thought; Try putting a piece of cardboard or ? in front of your radiator to block some of the cold air, (like 18 wheelers do). Or change your thermostat.

    I agree with ProfessorG. Replace the thermostat and gasket with Toyota OEM parts. call a dealership for the part numbers, and check ebay.com for better prices!
