Question about 2000 Nissan Xterra

1 Answer

Fan for Air Conditioner

Hi,

I have a 2000 Nissan Xterra. While driving with a/c on, the temperature gauge stays at the halfway mark, but if I park for only a minute with the a/c running the gauge moves VERY quickly upward to almost the danger zone.

Question is, is there not a separate fan for the air conditioner - not the fan that blows the cool air - but a fan that aids in cooling what's under the hood?

If so, may I ask what it's called so that I will know what the heck I'm looking for on the Internet
. Typing in "fan" along with "air conditioner" only brings back results for the fan blowing the cool air inside the cabin.

Thanks!

Carole

You have a fan temp sensor located on the engine block that controls when fan turns on or off.

2001 Nissan xterra temp gauge rises to H when idling?


Dear George,
I'll start with the most common cause.
Check the radiator cooling fan to see if it is functioning correctly.
It is turned on by a sensor that screws into the engine block, and there is also a relay in the under-hood electrical box.
Finally, the electric fan is mounted at the radiator.
There should be 2 fans there, one of them is for engine cooling, one for Air Conditioner cooling.
The engine cooling fan should come on anytime the engine temperature exceeds the setting of the screw-in-the-block sensor.
If it does not, it could be the sensor, the relay, or the cooling fan itself that has failed.
If you live in an area of the country that is prone to extreme cold temperature, "road salt" can contribute to fan failure.
If all these check OK, write us back and tell us, we'll go to step # 2.
God bless your efforts.

My 2002 xterra has started running hot..code po 217 came on..after gas cap was put on wrong..cleared code put gas cap on right then fine for 2 weeks..when idleing heat gauge rises high..as soon as i rev...


Hi Code P 0217 does point to the thermostat but it also points to the wiring, cooling system, and the temperature sensor, to check the thermostat start engine then once the temperature gauge in the car reaches normal the thermostat should open and the top hose that goes into the radiator will warm up quickly as the thermostat opens, if the thermostat is stuck in it's open position the top hose will start warming up before the engine reaches it's working temperature, hopefully i have explained it clearly,

Air Conditioner quites during idle


our car will do this, if the car is in idle and not reving or in drive the clutch will disingage the ac fan as not to burn it out.....in idle it gets very hot....and usually the air comming across the coils helps to keep the systems cooler....it's a good possibility it's because your car uses the r135 or r134 coolant and not the r12 coolant, they are trying to keep the r12 off the shelves for non industrial use....hope this helps you....shia

Nissan Altima no cool air blowing or hot air blowing


Hi!
It appears we have an Air lock scenario and you will need to perform a system Bleed.
Park the vehicle on level ground, when cold remove coolant filler cap, start engine and leave to idle, turn heater on full and blower to max. When engine reaches operating temperature watch and listen near coolant filler, keep clear as gurgling and hopefully a boil over should occur. Top up with very warm coolant and wait as it may do it again.
Check for heat inside vehicle if warm replace coolant cap but keep an eye on temperature gauge as the ~Air lock may have moved on from heater matrix/core so proceedure needs to be carried out again from COLD.
