Question about 1997 Nissan.5 Altima
I am having a 97 nissan altima - 78k - This weekend I noticed some coolant leak in the ground, I looked underneath and found coolant trace on the places above the Oil pan(it should be dripped from the area somewhat above the oil pan I guess). This happens only when the car is standing in the same place for more than 1 day during weekends. Could you please tell me what might be the cause? - (Any hoses??).

You need to replace the thermostat in the radiator, they are very inexpensive and most times you can replace it yourself, if that doesn't help, drain the radiator and buy a drain kit and radiator cleaner, it will remove rust corrosions and anything else blocking up the flow, replace fluids and check to see if it runs properly, worst case senario is that your water pump needs to be replace cause Nissans are notorious or I should say Older models are and water pump seems to be the thing that goes out before anything else

replace the front oil seal. first i would clean the engine with purple power (degrease etc.) then look at the engine and make sure the leak is not coming from above like possibly the valve cover gasket or from the oil sending unit. try to tighten the bolts on the valve cover and even the oil pan. you never know, you may get lucky. i don't know where you are but front seals are cheap but the labor on the job is what costs you.
