You might be lucky and only need a new radiator cap. The seal may have gone bad. If not there may be a small crack in the plastic of the radiator. It also sounds like you may need a new valve cover gasket. It's hard to tell without seeing what you have going on. :) Hopefully this helps get you going in the right direction.

What would make a 2005 2.5 nissan altima temperature gauge float when driving.


Trapped air in the coolant might cause that. Is there a coolant air bleed screw on or around the thermostat housing? Crack it open with engine running and see if any air comes out.
If no air bleed screw, find a fitting in the top most place on the engine that is in the water passages-the air if any will be at the top. The temperature gauge sender might work: if you loosen a fitting, just crack it open so air could escape, engine running. Once only coolant comes out, tighten the fitting.
Don't know what else would cause the gauge to float, unless it was heating unevenly. How hot does it get? Overheating or not?
If the engine is running hot, consider having a block test- a simple test, should be inexpensive, where they test for exhaust gases in the coolant, drawing radiator fumes into a container with a special fluid that changes color in the presence of hydrocarbons. And you know what that means: leaking head gasket.

Nissan Altima 2000 - Engine oil leaking problem.


replace the front oil seal. first i would clean the engine with purple power (degrease etc.) then look at the engine and make sure the leak is not coming from above like possibly the valve cover gasket or from the oil sending unit. try to tighten the bolts on the valve cover and even the oil pan. you never know, you may get lucky. i don't know where you are but front seals are cheap but the labor on the job is what costs you.

How many termostats does a 2003 nissan altima have and how easy to fix.


There is one thermostat for coolant and it is located at the end of top radiator hose inside the kneck that it connects to. To replace this the hose has to be removed and then the kneck,thermostat is brass colored valve that covers center of hole,clean old gasket from block side and kneck replace with new one and gasket with a bit of rtv sealant tighten kneck evenly when putting it back on,connect hose wait a short while for rtv to set up and should be good to go,"make sure engine is full of coolant b4 reassembling,just pour strait in engine if it isn't or you can damage new thermostat.overheating can also be sign of water pump not working as well so if still having problem then it is possible cause and on older models radiators get clogged.

Heater blowing cold air


My 2005 Nissan Sentra 1.8s with 55,000 mi. blows cold air from the heater. Coolant not circulating in engine. Lower hose stays cool to touch. Both heater hoses cold. Changed thermostat - didn't fix it. Coolant not leaking or dirty. None in oil - no oil in radiator. Changed worn water pump belt - pump spins freely with no noise or resistance. Cooling fans come on after warm-up. Temperature gauge stays in normal range then jumps to hot and back again. Coolant good to 10 below - didn't freeze here yet. No other problems or repairs to car. Afraid to drive and make worse. Help!

Replacing the radiator system for nissan altima 1998


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.
