Question about Nissan Altima

1 Answer

My car continue to run hot. I had my raditor replace because it did have a leak. So my uncle said that it can also be the themostat that is causing the car to run hot. I had the themostat taken out this morning. He said that I can run the car without the themostat until I get another today but the heater would not get hot. While coming to work, the car was getting hot again. The gauge for the temperature was getting closer and closer to the Hot area. What else could be the problem? The car is a 50 Nissan Altima.

My 99 aurora is running hot on the freeway,i'll changed my rad,water pump,and got my fan switch rerplace and done a combustion leak test just to see if i had exhaust gasses in my coolant...

Is the air dam at the bottom of the front of your car intact? If not it will definitely cause the engine to run hot at highway speeds since not enough cooling air will be passing through the radiator.

Not shure if I should replace the thermostat or water pump in my 03 chevy s10

If water pump leaking replace both, if not and truck is over heating start with thermostat.

1996 toyota corolla--had to check the raditor fluid daily but had no trouble running hot unless the fluid was low: replaced the radiator and now the car runs hot with coolant in the radiator. The car seems...

did you replace the thermostat when you put the radiator in,you could still have an air pocket in the system,recheck your coolant in the radiator when it is cold.
the next thing is to verify the cooling fans are working,when you see it hot check to see if it really is hot or gauge is lying,if it is hot see if the fans are running to maintain cooling temp,if they are not check coolant fan fuse and relay and last fan motors

1998 ford expedition 4.6 engine without tow package...overheating

If you're running it without a thermostat it's clear there isn't enough/any coolant circulating through the block. When the motor is running are the hoses off the radiator soft and flexible or stiff. If they're soft there's no coolant flowing through them. Chances are the radiator core is bad or there is a crack in it somewhere. Have it removed and tested.

It is over heating and i can't find the temperatre gauge under the hood...

first of all check the radiator for leak or blockage. make sure the coolant is fresh. follow th eupper radiator hosr to the emgine block. there should be 3 bolts attached the themostat housing. take the themostat out and put it with hot water, maks sure the opens. the temperture sending unit should be directly under the themostat. msot likely the themostat is cause or the problem. unless the temperture gage is not reading correctly.

No heat 95 escort

2 things to check

one take the hoses back off the fire wall take a hose and flush out the core both directions
till the water flows freely and clean this will eliminate the possibility of the core being stopped up

then you need to check the Heater ac blend door to see if it is moving when you slide the control from cool to hot the cable may be off or the door arm broken

hope this helps David
