Question about 1998 Nissan Altima
Hello Guys, i own a nissan altima 1998 and have found myself suddenly driving in a cloud of fumes because the radiator is spraying coolant on the engine manifold :).
I would not mind getting my hands dirty but would like to know what tools and equipment I need ready before I start tinkering around, If anyone could help me with the sequence of removing a radiator, All help is appreciated.:)
Drain coolant from the cooling system. White plastic drain plug in bottom of radiator.
take off bottom rad. hose and top rad hose.
All wrenches and sockets are either 10 or 12 mm. Remove air shroud from around radiator and fan.
Sometimes its easier to remove fan too.
If its an automatic, remove 2 rubber hoses at bottom of rad.
remove 4 bolts top and bottom that hold rad. in place.
reverse order of parts. Fill with coolant and check for leaks.
That is the basics of it.
