Heater hot when driving cools down a lot at idle what is wrong


Is cooling system clean and full? When at idle, water pump is turning much slower so water in heater may not be circulating well. Try back flushing heater core.

My 1996 Nissan Maxima only overheats when on incline but I can turn the heat on & it cools down immediately.


Could be the radiator fan. Running the heater adds a second source of getting rid of heat in the coolant. Is the radiator fan running when it is hot ? Are you sure the cooling system is full ?

1996 nissan maxima overheating


i believe the question was explained as fans work!! why all the fan inop answers?? anyway...you will need to check the water pump first...if you change it then make sure your cataltic converters are not plugged. from there its ussually a combustion leak from cracked or defective head gaskets due to the mileage. if it stays cool at idle its deff not a cooling fan problem..the fans only are used primary at idle. hope this helps

When heater/ac on..temp gage goes to hot when car idling but when driving holds at normal


Check to see if your electric radiator fan comes on when you are idling. You would be able to hear it if you open the hood. It should come on at around 200F and go off at 160-170F. If it is not working the car would heat to hot, when you are driving the air is forced thru the rad cooling off the antifreeze.

Have problems with a/c not cooling on nissan maxima 1999 year .has good pressures on gages .not cooling inside ,doors on box seem too be working .compressor is working .any ideas on what maybe wrong


You say the pressures are good?The low side on this vehicle need to be lower than most,because it has a expansion valve,it needs to be around 30 psi,to about 35,if it is not,and the freon level is correct,then the expansion valve is bad.If this was helpful,please rate,thank you.

Nissan 2000 ac hot when idle


the a/c condenser has a fan in front ( there is actually 2 fans if you sit on the car it will be fan on right side ) if this fan does not
come on immediately when you are parked and engine in idle
there is a problem with power to it, or motor failure. If you drive it
on the highway and a/c operates fine that's because air is circulating though condenser (thats what the fan is supposed to do at idle or slow traffic)
