Question about 2002 Nissan Altima
Heater works sometimes and not others. Does this have anything to do with the water pump?! Took it to an autobody shop and the guy said he has to fix the water pump. Another shop had told me that the heating coil was blocked up and so needed to be changed (repair takes several hours of labour) and so now I don't know where I stand. What are the possible problems behind a heater that won't work??
Hello solangesolib ,
the altima's i have encountered , are extremely difficult to bleed the air out of the cooling system , sometimes we have to jack up the front of the car to (for lack of better terms) burp them , i have tryed flushing heater cores , replacing thermostats , to no avail , but the air pocket thing is a charicteristic of the beast . also , 1 other thing we see is the blend door actuator get out of sync with the hot / cold selector knob , the gear is down by the drivers right foot , in the open , easily verified , its like a slice of pie shaped gear , they do strip and / or get out of sync , then when you turn knob to hot it really isn't . between these two things, is all we have really seen be wrong . hope that fix ya .
