See if you have a leak in any of your coolant tubes. If no leaks, you may have a bad thermostat that is stuck closed and needs to be replaced asap.

Nissan maxima loses power after 50 miles per accelaration


Could be an overheating problem, the head may be reaching a certain temperature that causes it to warp. It would do that if it had overheated in the past. Check the radiator and see if there is oil at the inside top of it. If there is, remove it and replace with anti-freeze and water. Then add AlumaSeal aluminum powder to the radiator fluid through the radiator cap, not the overflow container. Clean the surfaces of the radiator cap and radiator before replacing the cap.

My 2001 Nissan Maxima is overheating and I am also getting bad gas mileage. I have replaced the radiator cap, the engine coolant and thermostat. It is still overheating.


One possible cause of this is your radiator might be clogged with corrosion, in order to verify this is withe the engice cold, open the radiator cap and then, fill it up to full but not to the point that it will spill, start the engine and step on the accelerator pedal and observe the water from the radiator if the water will squirt upward. If the radiator is clogged, you need to have it overhauled to declog corrosion that is on the fins of your radiator.

You may also check the fans if they are spinning.

Hope this helps, it happened to me before and I'm just sharing it to you.

2006 nissan maxima radiator fans not kicking on/overheating


CHECK THE FUSE BOX ON THE DRIVER SIDE UNDER THE HOOD. CAN BE EITHER YOUR COOLANT TEMPERATURE SENSOR NOT WORKING TO LET THE FANS KNOW TO TURN ON OR YOUR THERMOSTAT IS STUCK CLOSE OR THE FUSE FOR THE FAN MAY NEED TO BE REPLACED.

2001 nissan maxima overheating problem persists


It sounds like the the thermostat that was replaced is probably faulty. This being the cheapest and easiest to do I would start there. I can't reply about the air pockets. I have never heard of that before.

Check or have the electric cooling fan or fans checked, to see if they are coming on, and the radiator cap checked. You've done everything else.
