The radiator cap is in the engine compartment, not at the radiator. The mr2 has a very strange radiator set up, because of the rear engine. when the engine is cold, open the radiator cap. If you see fluid, you're probably ok. However, I would recommend if you are worried about it, to bleed the system of air. The procedure is in the owner's manual, but there are 3 air bleeding valves. You need some hose (usually found in the front trunk behind the shroud and spare tire, clear plastic flexible tubing. One valve is on the drivers side radiator top, one is by the heater, and one is on the engine/transmission (the one with the hose already going to your overflow tank). with the car off, you can open these valves to let air out of the system if it gets trapped in those high points.

Let me know if you have trouble.

When you change fluid and filter, if it doesn't seem to be be taking enough fluid, you need to check the return cooling line. Loosen the return line ( the back one ) and have someone start the vehicle and put it in gear. If the check valve by the radiator is not plug you will have fluid pumping out. THIS ONLY TAKES A SECOND OR TWO, so don't let it run too long. If no fluid comes out, then the check valve is pluged and you need to replace your cooling line from the radiator to the transmission. This a common problem that cause the transmission to strave for fluid and burns what is in it. Remember to always check fluid level in Neutral and use Plus4 transmission fluid. Good luck.

The heater does not work on our 2000 Nissan Maxima. The fan blows air..but no heat. What could this be and what could it cost for repair?

make sure cooling flued is filled to the maximum . Is this no cure .maybe your heater crane is stuck and warm water is not comming through. find the crane at the heater radiator or just in front of where the heaterhoses go to the interior. it is possible that Nissan installs a electronic heater crane. then the only way to fix it is to fit a new one. hope to be at any help to you
