Question about 2002 Nissan Sentra
I was told that my Nissan has a coolant leak. The External Head Gasket has green coolant around it. I am a older women who knows nothing about cars so please help.
My car only has 24,000 miles on it.
I need to know if it should be repaired and where as I live in Portland, Oregon.
Also took this car into Nisson Dealership for inspection 2 months ago and they (to make this short) did not find this problem.
A Mac's Cooling shop found this problem as I also needed a new Radiator etc. as it was also leaking coolent.
Hope this makes sence as I am in hurry.
Take it to your auto parts store in town (call around to find one that can before you leave your driveway) and have them do a radiator preesure test. Won't cost a dime. If it pressure to 30 p.s.i. and holds, you more than likely don't have a problem and the techs were pointing out a previous problem and didn't know it had been repired.

The generic method of bleeding air from the cooling system is to use a floor jack and raise the front of the car as high as possible, then fill the coolant recovery tank full and run the engine until it just starts to overheat, high end of normal zone on gauge, then shut the engine down and run cold water over the radiator core, this will self bleed the system and the coolant will be pulled from the recovery tank, repeat as necessary, never let the recovery tank run dry or more air will be pulled into the system.
