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 themostat...so 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.

Car is overheating


First make sure the cooling system is full. This might require letting it cool and filling it more than once though the main raditor cap. Then it needs looked over for leaks. If it won;t stay full it'll overheat. The hose from the recovery tank to the raditor connection at the cap is a problem spot and it the raditor can't **** the coolant from the tank back into the raditor the engine will soon get low. If these things are alright then you neeed to watch it heat up, and see what's happening. The engine should worm up and as it does the upper raditor hose will warm and but hot but not right away. The side of the raditor should start to warm up soon after that, Touching the raditor it should warm up evenly from top to bottom if it doesn;t it's clogged. If the hose and engine get hot and the pressure inside the hoses rise but the raditor says cool then the therostate is sticking and needs to be changed. If the whole radidor gets hot till everythings too hot and the fan does'nt come on then you need to test the fan and it's fuses and connections. The cooling fan will be comanded on if you unplug the coolant temperture senser that's pluged into the side of the therosate hoseing as it's where the upper hose connects to the engine. If the fan seems to be coming on and hot air is coming off the back of the fan and it's still getting too hot and you've decided that the whole radidor is getting evenly hot then the engine may have an issue. Exhaust clogged up ( cat canvertor, muffer bent pipes) The check engine light might be on and the reasons it's on need to be examinded.

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
