Do you hear a sloshing noise coming from your glove compartment? If so, they did not completely remove tha air pocket. I had the same problem. Jacked up the front of my car and started the motor. Removed the radiator cap while still cool, and topped of the coolant. Then as the motor warmed up, the air bubbled out of the radiator. Once the bubbling stopped, reinstalled the cap and all is good.

2005 Nissan Altima 2.5L - where is the heated oxygen sensor number 2 located

Oxygen sensors are mounted either side of the catalytic converter. Number 1 is mounted before the cat in the down pipe and the Number 2 is in the exhaust pipe just after the cat, think the number 2 is the downstream.

1996 nissan altima. no heat. waterpump and thermostat was replaced. Air pocket in the heater core? someone once said to park the car on an incline and run the engine at 2-2500 rpm for a few minutes....

If the castings of the engine happen to be able to catch and hold air pockets, it is about the only reliable way to get the air to move out of the head or block where it is trapped.

Park in a manner that puts the uppermost hose on the engine at the highest point. If it happens to be the upper heater hose, you may consider adding a flushing tee.

Air pockets are rather common. I have had 3 vehicles that suffered from air pockets in various locations.

Coolant guage goes to 3/4 hot when car is put in park then comes down to 1/2 coolant has been flushed out and replaced.

Hello and thank you for using FixYa!

If you did not have this problem before the coolant was flushed and replaced, then you most likely have a air pocket in the coolant system causing the over heat or running hot condition. Nissan's can get air pockets very easy if not bleed correctly causing over heating.

Thanks Jay!
