Question about Cars & Trucks
Due to the thermo housing change , you may have created an air pocket in your system. You will have to bleed the air out, and fill system to proper level. GOOD LUCK FRIEND.

SOURCE: Hi, I have a 2001 nissan
hi. was just looking at your problem of (sentra) overheating and actually, i am a mechanic for nissan and have changed many head gaskets for this particular vehicle equipped with 1.8 liter motor and found that they are notorious for this problem of faulty head gasket's.Unless you did't properly bleed the system,which i doubt because you seem mechanically inclined since you already changed every other part of the system,i would't doubt that this is the problem.Anyway, by the time you read this, you have probably already found this out..Just thought i would let you know this info.Good luck!...by the way,if you haven't already changed you cam and crank sensors,do that too,before you get stuck and get the part's at the dealer!!!!-they are redesigned from the old one's!!just some advise to try to help you out!!! John from N.Y.

It depends on where the leak is coming from. If the water pump is leaking, it has a hole on the bottom of it. You will see a trail of dried anti freeze coming from the bottom of it, indicating a bad water pump. It's best to dry everything off, crank it up and let it come to operating temp and check for where the leak is coming from. It may just be an old hose or loose clamp.

your fluid needs topping up, auto matic transmissions actually use the oil to drive, not friction plates as in normal manual transmissions

SOURCE: OVER HEATING
In the fan circuit...You have a temp switch screwed on the radiator, a fuze and a relay in the fuze box plus a fan. Swap the relay with another relay, replace the fuze. The other fan should come on when the a/c is turned on. If you fix the fans and it still overheats, you may have a BLOWN HEAD GASKET. ALSO ARE YOU BLEEDING THE AIR FROM THE SYSTEM? DO YOU SMELL EXHAUST IN THE COOLANT?

I recommend flushing the radiator thoroughly if not done recently. there seems to be some sort of blockage in the radiator at this time. if you get lots of metal fragments that are flushed out during this flush, i will then recommend a rebuild on the radiator or replacement of the radiator. make sure the cooling fans are cycling on time as well.
