I am not one hundred percent positive there is one but look near the thermostat housing and see if there is a metal tube coming off of it on the tube you will see a small bleeder screw possibly 8mm. Open the screw and start the car with the heater on high watch for solid water to come out of the screw.

My car keeps overheating..I changed the thermostat but the gauge is still all the way to hot..could it be the water pump?


Probly not. Unless the pump is run by it's own belt which broke. Usually , a pump is good till it starts leaking all over the place.
Please explain overheating problem more. Is it while you are driving , or when you are stoped in trafic. Does it heat up and overheat very quickly after you start the car. Is it really overheating , or is your guage just showing overheat.

2003 intrepid over heating


make sure that the system has been bled of all the air to do this there should be a little bleeder screw near the thermostat housing open this up until water comes out start the car and turn the heater on high watch for any air bubbles to come out of the bleeder until it is straight fluid coming out see if this fixes it, also check the radiator cap this could cause overheating too, if this is all fine check the fan switches to make sure they come on at right temperature.

Have you shop perform a "leakdown test." You probably have a bad head gasket )or a leak in the gasket).

My 04' over heating when idoling and ac is on


Fixed problem HERE........................


We changed thermostat, belts, water pump, hoses... you name it we changed it nothing worked. Just before we ordered a new radiator I took a few pics sent them to my dad and instantly he said to remove the bleeder bolt then fill radiator. That's it guys months of overheating a lot of money and hours of work when in the end it was so simple, cost nothing and took 2 mins.


Turns out most the Nissan motors have a type of bleeder bolt or something (not sure what its called exactly) on top of the motor and that should be removed while filling radiator. step 1 wait till engine is cooled down all the way. step 2 remove radiator cap. step 3 remove the bleeder bolt on top of motor (look around for it. Its just a little old bolt all alone) step 4 slowly fill radiator until coolant/water to come out of the bleeder hole. step 5 put bleeder bolt back in. step 6 put radiator cap back on. That's it. Good luck



if you do not do these steps air get caught in the system and when heated turns to steam. and your radiator cant circulate that steam because the hot air raises. The steam will just sit at the top of the motor and block the coolant/water from circulating through the radiator like it should. Without it passing through the radiator correctly it will not cool. Having a new radiator helps because when they installed it they probably filled it correctly (by removing that bleeder bolt). They knew they could have just filled the old one correctly but there isn't any $$$money$$$ in that for them. trimble7383_0.jpg
