No it's elec. check cooling temp. sensor, will sit close to the thermostat housing, also check cooling fan fuse and relay. also when temp gauge at about haft way up check voltage at cooling fan connector, if there is voltage replace cooling fan. also with a/c on fan should come on right away, check voltage at fan.

My 1996 Nissan Maxima only overheats when on incline but I can turn the heat on & it cools down immediately.


Could be the radiator fan. Running the heater adds a second source of getting rid of heat in the coolant. Is the radiator fan running when it is hot ? Are you sure the cooling system is full ?

2000 Nissan Maxima Overheating


Hi. Your radiator fan motor may be seized. Should ingage between 95-100 degrees when you parked on idle after achieving full working temp. If it doesn't, check fuse first and than relay responsible for cooling fan( you can find cavity in your owner manual. Let me know. The reason you car is ok while driving is the air going thru your radiator. When you stoped or parked for longer time with no speed there is nothing to cool your radiator. Fix it asap or eventually will cause engine over hit and seize.

See if you have a leak in any of your coolant tubes. If no leaks, you may have a bad thermostat that is stuck closed and needs to be replaced asap.

CHECK THE FUSE BOX ON THE DRIVER SIDE UNDER THE HOOD. CAN BE EITHER YOUR COOLANT TEMPERATURE SENSOR NOT WORKING TO LET THE FANS KNOW TO TURN ON OR YOUR THERMOSTAT IS STUCK CLOSE OR THE FUSE FOR THE FAN MAY NEED TO BE REPLACED.

Check or have the electric cooling fan or fans checked, to see if they are coming on, and the radiator cap checked. You've done everything else.
