Sounds like a major vacuum leak. Is the air intake hose attached from the air filter to the throttle assembly and is tight

SOURCE: replacing the radiator system for nissan altima 1998

Drain coolant from the cooling system. White plastic drain plug in bottom of radiator.

take off bottom rad. hose and top rad hose.

All wrenches and sockets are either 10 or 12 mm. Remove air shroud from around radiator and fan.
Sometimes its easier to remove fan too.

If its an automatic, remove 2 rubber hoses at bottom of rad.

remove 4 bolts top and bottom that hold rad. in place.

reverse order of parts. Fill with coolant and check for leaks.

That is the basics of it.

SOURCE: hole in radiator

Depends On The Size On The Hole And How Much You Have To Spend Also By The Location Of The Hole. If Its A Tiny Hole You Can Use Jb weld Purchasable At Most Auto Parts Store. If Its A Small Crack They Sell An Additive That Will Seal It At Any Auto parts Store.
If Its A Bigger Crack Or Hole You'll Need To Find Someone To Weld It For You.

For The jb Weld And Additive It May Not Last But In Some Instances Lasts A Really Long Time.

Sincerely,
Michael Scott

SOURCE: My 2005 Nissan Altima loss power while I was

the 2.5 altima's had a recall on that problem about 2-3 years ago. Go to edmunds or progressive find the recall letter and the dealer will fix it free. well here you go:

section_opened.gif Recall ID # 07V527000 - ENGINE AND ENGINE COOLING Recall Date: NOV 14, 2007 Component: ENGINE AND ENGINE COOLING Model Affected: ALTIMA Potential Units Affected: 653910 Recall Details Recall Date: NOV 14, 2007

Model Affected: 2005 NISSAN ALTIMA

Summary: ON CERTAIN PASSENGER VEHICLES EQUIPPED WITH A 2.5L ENGINE, THE CRANKSHAFT POSITION SENSOR CAN OVERHEAT CAUSING A BRIEF INTERRUPTION IN THE SIGNAL OUTPUT FROM THE SENSOR.

Consequence: IF THE INTERRUPTION IN THE SIGNAL FROM THE CRANKSHAFT POSITION SENSOR IS SO BRIEF THAT THE ELECTRONIC CONTROL MODULE (ECM) LOGIC DOES NOT HAVE TIME TO DIAGNOSE THE CONDITION, THE ENGINE MAY STOP RUNNING WITHOUT WARNING WHILE THE VEHICLE IS DRIVEN AT A LOW SPEED INCREASING THE RISK OF A CRASH.

Remedy: DEALERS WILL REPROGRAM THE ECM FREE OF CHARGE. CERTAIN MY 2006 ALTIMAS WHICH HAVE BEEN PREVIOUSLY REMEDIED UNDER RECALL CAMPAIGN 06V223 (NISSAN R0606) ARE NOT INCLUDED IN THIS RECALL SINCE THE REPROGRAMMING FOR 06V223 ALSO INCLUDED THIS REPROGRAMMING. THE RECALL BEGAN ON DECEMBER 31, 2007. OWNERS MAY CONTACT NISSAN AT 1-800-647-7261.

Potential Units Affected: 653910

Notes: NISSAN NORTH AMERICA, INC.

SOURCE: I have 1994 Nissan Altima 230K that overheats after a few miles.

you've answered your own question! You're cooling system has leaks possibly from your rad. You should have no leaks whatsoever.
I would also look to see if you have leaks anywhere else. Look under the car on the passenger side - see if you have leaks from the water pump. I would go to a radiator
repair shop. They will flush the system and check for leaks.
I wouldn't hang around or else you will damage your engine AND transmission. Which will be more money down the line.

Is there something I can do to stop a leak the size of a pin hole in my radiator. I drive a 2005 nissan altima


You can drain the radiator and solder the leaky spot . A cheap-o electric solder kit from a an electronic/geek shop will do fine. Gently ( I mean gently....) wirebrush the area first. When it's done and no leaks, spray paint it to avoid rust.

My '99 Nissan Altima is sick. It drives, but I can only give it 1/4 throttle or it will bog. Also, the horn and the speedo have stopped working (I think the lights have stopped as well). If I put the key...


Need to maybe replace the battery with a new one that doesn't leak, and clean up the battery connections with a wire brush so it's shiny and clean looking.

Check for blown fuses in the fuse box for the horn and speedometer.
