Question about 1997 Nissan Maxima
The problem first started when i had my radiator replaced i just bought the car and it was sold to me without a serpintine belt after replacing the radiator and harmonic balancer, my car continues to overhreat before replacing the radiator it just squeeked really loud whenever the engine was idle now it overheats everytime i drive
If you cant see it leaking, it could just need a coolant system flush to clear anything out that could be clogging it. get it towed to a shop to get it flushed. if you see it leaking, find the source and correct it! look at the drain plug at the bottom corner of the radiator, could be lose which would cause massive amounts of loss because thats where it is emptied for normal maintenance.

Check or have the electric cooling fan or fans checked, to see if they are coming on, and the radiator cap checked. You've done everything else.

Sounds like a blown head gasket from multiple overheatings. Parts retailers have a chemical that can determine this. To use it the coolant level in the radiator needs to be a little low so no coolant will be pulled into chemical container. Engine needs to be at operating temperature. The containter is pushed onto radiator cap opening and bulb squeezed numerours times for about 2 minutes. If the chemical changes from blue to yellow (or green depending on manufacturer) then the head gasket is blown or head has warped (or both).

i have a 2005 1.8 nissan sentra.i rplaced the radiator becuause it was leaking.so when i did i took it for a test drive and the needle went to hot then back down to middle ways between the C & H BACK IN FORTH.so i replaced the thermostat. now as far as i can tell it is staying in the middle of C & H. i can't feel no water though cerulating through the top or bottom hose of the radiator. so now that i told you what i done so far my question is???? ( my heater is not working in the car it is blowing out cold air & i left the car runnng for about 45 min. even took it up and down the road.still cold air.what do you think i need to do?????????? )
