2007 nissan exterra overheats


Hi Kim,

I can feel your frustration. It sounds like you've done all the logical stuff already. The "donut hole" in your process would seem to be not changing the water pump. The water pump as you might imagine, is responsible for circulating (pumping) the relatively cool water in the radiator into the running engine that contains the hot water. Hoses connect the two together. A thermostat is between the radiator and the engine. Once the water in the running engine gets to a certain temperature, the thermostat opens allowing the water pump to send cool water into the engine and hot water out to the radiator to be cooled. The heater core is usually on the passenger side firewall area.

It sounds like the water pump is the only thing left to change - if it isn't working - it can't circulate the water - and will result in overheating. Lastly, a clogged heater core shouldn't cause the engine to overheat - in fact, if the engine begins to overheat, you should turn the heat to HIGH fan and HIGH temperature to help remove some of the heat in the coolant.

Good luck!

Is this a blown headgasket:?


It sounds like you probably have a newly installed window in your engine block. Overheating can do serious damage to an engine. If the headgasket was bad, there could be damage anywhere from a cracked cylinder head all the way to severely overheated and dammaged crankshaft and camshaft bearings. The fact that it suddenly started spraying oil all over everywhere suggests that a bearing has come apart and a piston or connecting rod has broken and you now have a hole in your engine block.

I have a leak and cannot find where it is coming from!? Could it be coming from the water pump?


Yes its likely most water pumps have a small hole on the under side of them called a weep hole. Its there to let you know that the seal is starting to leak and the pump needs to be replaced before it completely fails say on the highway and dose a lot of damage to the engine If its coming out the bottom center of the pump shaft and just driping a little then its time to replace the pump you should be able to feel the hole with your finger

No heat,fans ok replaced tstat ????


These cars are famous for clogging the heater core and restricting the flow of coolant, i would have the whole cooling system flushed also if it looks dirty, to help back you will need to locate the two hoses on the rear of the engine that go to the heatercore, remove them from the core or the engine side i think the engine side is easier but what ever you think because im not sure what engine is in that car, a 3.0 or 3.8 etc, after removing the hoses from engine you will then use a water hose to flush the core, point one hose down so not to get sprayed and take the hose and push it into hole of the other hose and blast the water as you watch what comes out the other end, then switch hoses and do the same repeat these steps a few times until clear water flows then reconnect hoses and top off coolant and see if theres heat, hope this helps, good luck.

What is entailed in 120k service on my Eclipse? Timing belt plus what else?


I usually recommend a cooling system overhaul to my customers. It can go a long way in preventing damage from cooling system failure. I replace the water pump and ALL cooling system hoses including heater hoses, bypass hoses and radiator hoses. Then I flush out the radiator and the heater core with all the hoses removed. I go to the dealer and ask them to get me every colling hose that goes on the car. They are a lot more expensive at the dealer, but my 36 years of experience has taught me that the aftermarket hoses don't fit correctly and many have to be modified to get them to fit and they don't last as long as original equipment. It can be a little expensive, but it is a LOT cheaper that having to replace an engine or buy a new car.

When changing a timing belt, you should also replace the "timing components" which include idler and tensioner pullies. These pullies have as many miles on them as the belt and will not last as long as the new belt if you don't replace them. Failure of these pullies will cause the new timing belt to come off and cause serious engine damage. (ALL Mitsubishi engines are interference engines, meaning that severe engine damage will result from a failed timing belt.)

A transmission fluid and filter change is probably also appropriate at this time - especially if it has not been done in the last 30,000 miles or so.

Overheating


CHANGE THERMOSTAT AND RADIATOR PRESSURE CAP.CHECK COOLANT LEVEL.MAKE SURE YOU HAVE 50/50 ANTIFREEZE AND WATER.MAKE SURE COOLING FANS COMING ON WHEN ENGINE REACHES 190 DEGREES.TO SEE IF COOLANT FANS RUNNING TURN ON CAR AIR CONDITIONER TO SEE IF FANS RUN IF NOT CHECK COOLING FANS FUSES.IF FUSES GOOD I AM LOOKING AT A FAULTY COOLANT TEMPERATURE SENSOR.IF ALL IS GOOD.NO LEAKS AT RADIATOR HOSES + HEATERS HOSES. NO LEAKS AT WATER PUMP WEEP HOLE OR GASKET.NO LEAKS AT RADIATOR.LAST RESORT CHECK ENGINE OIL. IF LOOKS LIKE MILK SHAKE YOU HAVE LEAKING HEAD GASKET.THAT WILL CAUSE ENGINE OVERHEATING.

Is there a way to know wheither its the water pump or a hose if you car is losing antifreeze? The car doesnt seem to be leaking when it is idle in the parking spot but when i come home frome a ride the...


it could easily be burning the antifreeze through a bad head gasket. if when warmed up the upper hose is quite stiff indicating the system is under pressureand you shut it off,even waiting until the radiator fan comes on and then right away turning of the key,wait and see iff anything runs out.the water pump would have to be looked at from below while the leak is ocuuring= reason must mechanics suffer a lot of burns. or with a sall extendable saft mirror. you could also loose antifreeze from a heater core leak but that would give a lot of steam on your windshield inside in the cold weather,or the carpet would be wet inside the car

My 96 Isuzu Rodeo does not indicate that it is overheating but the hoses connecting to the radiator swell up and look like they are ready to pop. Now, there is a really loud noise like a metal fan hitting...


sounds like you might have a head or head gasket problem, combustion pressure leaking into radiator/cooling system causing pressure build up (hose swelling) the noise could also be from this failure.
get engine warm so hoses swell, turn off engine remove spark plugs leave radiator cap on and pressure from cooling system as is(hoses swollen) wait 5-10 minutes crank over engine with plugs removed and keep clear of spark plug holes, put paper in front of spark plug holes if water comes out of spark plug hole or slight wetting of paper with water head or head gasket is at fault.

2006 honda civc lx water pump or radiator hose is leaking cant figure out the problem


Hi there You need to purchase yourself a water pressure tester kit, available from most Car Parts Factors. This will enable you to apply pressure to the cooling system, preferably when cold (you don't want to get yourself burnt with hot water) and with an inspection light and small mirror to help you, determine more accurately where your leak is coming from exactly.
