You may have an air pocket in the cooling system. Most hoses have a wire spring inside to prevent collapse.

SOURCE: power window issues

Try removing the fuse to the windows and see if that resets the system. I know what your talking about of the 02 Altima, have a issue with mine using to much oil and the dealership says there nothing wrong.

Hope this helps with the window issue

Hello , you are probably not doing anything wrong. Some garage door openers will not accept some codes. My Toyota Tundra 2005 worked on my garage door , but my 2004 F250 would not. Quinn , Arizona

SOURCE: 2003 Altima engine cold and off, a/c off, collant

i think that you have an issue with your wiring harness under the wiper colweling. nissan has issues with those harnesses right under the cowling on the l/h side of car. the problem is right under the l/h wiper, where the harness rubbs on the wiper arm assembly and wires get exposed and whole bunch of issues develop, just like the ones that you are talking about. i had one where fans came on along with lights and other problems. I would look in there. remove the wiper arms and colwing and look at the harness on l/h side where it surves to 90 degrees. good luck.

SOURCE: trouble is insufficient coolant temp. for closed loop fuel control on 96 altima

How old is the battery? Are the connections clean and tight? Have your starting, charging system check and replace your thermostat. Good luck to you.

Turns over but won't start

if you lost all the coolant most likely the engine overheat. temperature sensor is not accurate if no coolant to touch the sensor.after you fill again,the coolant enter inside the cylinder and kill the sparks.
Remove the spark plugs and inspect for coolant. crank the engine without spark plugs and see if coolant will blow out.turn the engine to cylinder #1 top and pressurize with air. look at radiator if the coolant bubble.

Remove a hood from a 2006 nissan altima

absolutely not. first thing, carefully remove the washer hoses. there are four bolts on the hinges. just remove front two completely then slowly remove rear two while someone else holds the other side of hood. the hood itself is relatively light.when reinstalling, keep the hood bolts slightly loose and bring down the hood slowly, not letting it close. when you can position the hood straight, tighten a bolt on either side then close the hood. if it closes and opens while being evenly gapped on both sides tighten all four bolts. then replace the washer hose and done.

How do i know the thermostat is going bad in a 1990 grand marquis

If anything, it might be stuck partially open. If it were stuck fully closed, the car would really overheat, like boiling hot. You might try taking the radiator cap off when it is cooled down enough, and start the car and wait till it has reached normal operating temperature, so the thermostat should be fully open. Now momentarily squeeze the upper radiator hose together as tight as you can, trying to stop the flow. Look into the radiator and see if you notice a surge of coolant when you let the hose go. If the thermostat is open you should feel the coolant surge when you let your hand go of the hose, and see the coolant coming into the radiator. Just kind of a rough test. If you aren't sure, a new thermostat is always a good idea.

How to replace coolant for nissan altima 2006

Park the Nissan Altima on a flat surface and set the parking brake. Next, open the hood and check the external temperature of the radiator. If the radiator is warm to the touch, wait for the radiator to cool before you continue.

Twist the radiator cap one turn to relieve any pressure. Step back from the radiator and allow a few seconds to pass, and then completely remove the radiator cap.

Place a bucket or tray with at least a 2-gallon capacity underneath the radiator and below the drain plug. The drain plug on a Nissan Altima is on the passenger side bottom of the radiator.

Loosen the drain plug and let the old coolant drain completely into the bucket. Take care while loosening the drain plug, because it's plastic and can be brittle. Pour the old coolant into a sealable container for proper disposal later and put the bucket back under the drain plug opening.

Close the drain plug and pour distilled water into the radiator until it's full. Then, open the drain plug and let the water flow into the bucket. Keep repeating this procedure until the water runs clear and debris free into the bucket. You will need at least 3 gallons of distilled water.

Make sure to tighten the drain plug and fill the radiator with fresh coolant. Refill the radiator to within an inch of it overflowing. Check the drain plug and hoses for any possible leaks.

Start the Nissan Altima and turn the heater to the high setting. Let it run for about 10 minutes and shut the engine off. Check the coolant level and refill, if necessary. Finally, put the radiator cap on and close the hood.

I want to flush the radiator... how do I do that?

FIrst drain the previous liquid in the radiator.

Take the Drivers side "fog light" out(only 2 screws), and access the bottom raidiator hose behind the light. Loosen the clamp and pull the hose away from the raidiator untill drained completly, put hose back on, refill with water, then drain again.(repeat as much as needed until flushed to your desire) I prefer to run the engine a few minutes between flushes, but "YOU MUST MAKE SURE ENGINE HAS COOLED" before draining the fluid.

Need help with coolant flush on 2002 pontiac montana....bleeder valves....

Many cars have problems with air trapped in the cooling system because the cylinder head coolant passages are higher than the radiator cap. Park up hill and leave the radiator cap loose. Run engine until thermostat opens, hot upper hose. Keep reservoir full, let cool down repeat. Make sure heater is on all the time.

No heat installed new heater switch, replaced water pump..replaced coolants, and thermostat......................what else could it be? Nissan 2003 GXE Sentra 1.8 L Engine/...

you could have an air pocket in the cooling system that has to be burped. With a cold engine, park uphill and leave the radiator cap loose. Fill radiator and coolant reservoir. Start engine with cap loose and run at 1500 rpm until temp gauge reads normal. Feel if top radiator return hose from engine to radiator is hot. If yes, coolant is flowing and thermostat is open. If cold, thermostat is not staying closed until engine is hot.

report results.
