    When you say water do you really mean engine coolant?

I have 99 Nissian altima water leak driver side under hood I got under car couldn't pinpoint where leak was could not see from top either its straight water no oil or tranny fluid mixed in

it could be just condensation from the a/c or is it leaking into the passenger compartment? If it is not coming in and it is not coolant i do not think it is anything to worry about. If it is blue the washer bottle could be cracked.

My 99 cavalier 2.2 is leaking water / coolant on the left hand side of the engine area. It leaks while driving and while the car is not running. As far as i can tell its not leaking into the oil and not...

no freeze plugs are located on the sides of that engine... the front and back when viewed under hood.... i believe your resivoir- overflow is on the same side as you describe the leak so id check that first otherwise it seems youve a thermostat housing, intake manifold leak or another waterpump issue

Idles high

High idles are usually caused by a vacuum leak. The leak could be from a hose or hoses that are connected to the engine and have either cracked,disconnected or became loose over time. Intake gasket could also be the cause. You can open the hood and inspect all the hoses. Then start the vehicle (if hoses are ok) and see if you can hear the vacuum leak and pin point where it is coming from. Besure that your extremely careful if your engine is running and you are under the hood. There are many moving parts you need to be careful of as well as parts that become hot when the engine is running.

Have a 2000 cadillac deville with north star engine. Had oil leaks fixed back in 2009 and no leaks of any kind since but it uses oil like crazy to me and it smells like oil when you start it up and drive...

First, your oil consumption could possibly be a bad PCV Valve if it sticks open, it will **** oil out and pass through air filter, engine and out through exhaust w/little or no smoke. The whining noise sounds like a vac leak, check all small vac lines in and around intake manifold. A vac leak could also be contributing to your oil consumption problem.

My car shaking and running hot, don't know why

First thing to check would be the water pump. With the engine off, look under the hood and grab the fan with both hands. (Some cars have two fans, an electric one, and a belt driven one.) You want to grab the belt driven fan, and see if there is any play. Also check the coolant level, then check for leaks at the water pump. Make sure all belts are in place. This is the place to start, if the water pump is good, it could be a bad head gasket, you may have lost compression on one cylinder, causing the engine to run roughly.

How to replace coolant for nissan altima 2006

Park the Nissan Altima on a flat surface and set the parking brake. Next, open the hood and check the external temperature of the radiator. If the radiator is warm to the touch, wait for the radiator to cool before you continue.

Twist the radiator cap one turn to relieve any pressure. Step back from the radiator and allow a few seconds to pass, and then completely remove the radiator cap.

Place a bucket or tray with at least a 2-gallon capacity underneath the radiator and below the drain plug. The drain plug on a Nissan Altima is on the passenger side bottom of the radiator.

Loosen the drain plug and let the old coolant drain completely into the bucket. Take care while loosening the drain plug, because it's plastic and can be brittle. Pour the old coolant into a sealable container for proper disposal later and put the bucket back under the drain plug opening.

Close the drain plug and pour distilled water into the radiator until it's full. Then, open the drain plug and let the water flow into the bucket. Keep repeating this procedure until the water runs clear and debris free into the bucket. You will need at least 3 gallons of distilled water.

Make sure to tighten the drain plug and fill the radiator with fresh coolant. Refill the radiator to within an inch of it overflowing. Check the drain plug and hoses for any possible leaks.

Start the Nissan Altima and turn the heater to the high setting. Let it run for about 10 minutes and shut the engine off. Check the coolant level and refill, if necessary. Finally, put the radiator cap on and close the hood.

2002 altima idling too high check engine light on

The first and easiest thing you should do or have someone do, is check under the hood for a vacuum leak, possibly coming from a cracked or broken hose. Check and inspect all rubber hoses, including the large ribbed hose running to the throttle body (Engine air intake from the air filter box). You can hear a leak if it is loud enough and will sound like a hiss. Your engine is idling high because of a vacuum leak.

  1. Sometimes the steam from under the hood, because it is over heat.

  1. Check the water hose include the heater hose, it is a smaller hose behind the engine on the top near the back of the hood, find out which hopes is leaking.

  1. If the hose is OK, check the freeze plug on the engine, because if the engine is too old, maybe the plug was rust and leaking, when it’s leaking, the engine is hot, you will see the steam under the hood.

  1. When engine is hot, you have to be very carefully, do not open the water cap, if you want to open, you have to either wait a while or use a heavy towel to cover the radiator cap, then open it.

  1. Maybe the radiator is leaking.
I hope this can help you a little bit. good luck.
