Could be a number of things, coolant? Or water? Make sure it is coolant, it boils at 265, water boils at 212.F, How about the oil? Checked it lately? It will cook an engine if it doesn't have any. Is the radiator clogged up inside or out side? Peek inside and see if you see rocks forming at the little openings. Outside full of bugs and grass? The thermostat usually stops working in the open position and runs cool, but it should be checked. The worst thing is a blown head gasket, it will have oil in the top of the of the radiator or water in the oil, also look for steam coming out the exhaust when it is running. A radiator shop can do a compression check and tell you exactly what piston it is. And give you a quote on repair, it is expensive. Upwards of $1500. Hope this helps.

2000 maxima runs hot/overheats and sporadically gets heat when on the gas. Otherwise no heat at all. Already replaced the thermostat, heater core, radiator and hoses...gets good flow but gets no heat and...


That is typical that the heater won't work well when the engine is overheating. Often because of low coolant, also the htr. core is the highest part of the coolant system. Bite the bullet and check for a head gasket problem-a compression test should tell you.

I fail to see why you tried to ruin the motor
& may have succeeded

Drive 60 miles AFTER it overheats
Then drive 3 weeks without wondering about
the overheating issue

Someone should take the car away from you

Stupid & then tell the whole world on the internet

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.

Overheated and found small pin hole in passenger side radiator hose. Suspect thermostat(s) stuck. Need to change.


The hole in the hose will cause it to overheat through water loss and pressure loss. Replace the hose first and see how it works.

My nissan maxima 2000 model is overheating when the A/C is on


check to make sure the electric fan for the a/c is coming on when you turn the a/c on if not have it repaired or replaced if necessary. also make sure you have adequate and clean coolant in your cooling system at the proper 50/50 mixture. if it hasn't been changed in more than 3-5 yrs. it's definitely due, and have the thermostat done at the same time.
