If your car runs well, then the head gasket must have been the problem for the no start condition. The head could have warped causing a leak which caused the overheat condition, which lead to a further damaged head gasket.

4 cyl. cars are known for this problem, but it happens to V-8's as well.

Watch those coolant levels in 4 cylinder cars, especially.

Does the nissan maxima 2004 3.5L V6 engine automatically shutdown when overheating


Hi Dean, Sorry to tell you this but as far as I know it does not shut down. If the engine overheats it is more likely that a seizure or partial seizure will shut it down.Overheating can also result in damage to the cylinder head or the gasket under it. Regards John

I have a 2002 Nissan Altima 3.5L SE Engine that overheated while on a trip. The overheating affected some few components in the engine and they where replaced. However, the car refused to start.


Were the parts installed correctly? All wiring harnesses plugged back in? Did the Nissan quit running before parts were replaced? The overheating may have blown a head gasket.

1999 nissan altima, overheated and no leaks after fluid replinished, but car will start and then shut off after a few minutes.


check to see if your engine oil and antifreeze are mixing.if overheated you burned ur head gasket car will not turn on because it loosing engine compression. to check this you need to do compression test..ur engine will seize if you keep starting it.and letting it keep shutting off.keep damage to a minimum internally
