Check to see that your not low on coolant after the vehicle cools down would be the 1st step. If thats okay then you need to have the water pump flow tested and make sure the thermostat is working properly. Either way I would consider a cooling system service given the age of the vehicle especially if you have not had it done in the last 2 years. Hope this helps.

    I HAVE INSTALLED NEW THEROMOSTATS FLUSHED RADITOR STILL OVERHEATS

  • mikehead Oct 05, 2010

    Did you have the water pump flow tested, your not moving enough coolant at higher speeds which usually indicates a restriction somewhere (radiator, heater core, etc) or a water pump that is going bad. Could also be a faulty ECT sensor.

My 2002 Altima SL 2.5 drives and shifts fine for an hour or so. Then it won't shift from first gear.


In spite of what Firestone did it still sounds like you have a defective speed sensor. Other people have also had this problem and it was solved by replacing the speed sensor.

I hope it resolves your problem.

Heater blows cold air at low speed and idle 02 nissan altima


I worked at a Nissan dealer for 18 months and we'd get a lot of these in. The cold heat at idle is accompanied by a sloshing noise from behind the dash - you've got an air pocket in the heater core. What we used to do was lift the front end of the car about 3 feet off the ground using the hoist and take the rad cap off. Then we'd run the engine at a fast idle (jam a screwdiver against the throttle stop to hold it fast or put a slight weight on the pedal if it's Electronic Throttle Body. Run the heater on full heat and the engine like this. You'll see the rad 'burping' as the air in the cooling system travelling to the highest point it can - the open rad cap. Top up with a 50/50 mix of coolant and water as you go. When it burps no more, you have a full cooling system and should not suffer any more "cold heat".

If you do this yourself, PLEASE use jack stands, block the back wheels and put the parking brake on!!!

Can I put P225/60R16 on my 2006 Nissan Altima the factory spec is for P215/60R16


You should be o.k. Your speedometer will read a little lower than actual speed (about 2 mph) so if your going 60 mph, by speedo, you'll be doing roughly 62 mph. Approx. only 1/2" wider so shouldn't rub when turning sharp. One thing to be very aware of though, as I experienced it personally with exact same change in size, is that the response in the steering wheel seemed a bit quicker. In other words, until your used to them, pay close attention to road more while driving. I found a slight movement in steering wheel on highway, and vehicle wandered off quicker, as well as when in turns, it took less travel of steering wheel than normal. Just takes more concentration for a while.

The RPM of Nissan Altima stays high when drive over 65 MPH.


No....the rpms differ from engine to engine and from manufacturer to manufacturer. RPM's are always higher at higher speeds.

Stick shift # Automatic RPM


That is normal,If you do the same speed in 4th gear the rpm's will almost double.

The rpm's will repond faster in a manual than an automatic.

In a manual the engine supplies the power required directly to the gear that you have selected thus the engine rpm's will increase or decrease as needed.

About RPM


The RPM's should go up with speed and then level out once you mantain a speed.
