I have a 2004 nissan maxima that has a water coolant gasket leak. I'm trying to fix it myself but I don't see any threads explaining how.I really need help


Which gasket is it you are talking about ... a cylinder head gasket or a water pump gasket?

A cylinder head gasket replacement isn't straightfoward or cheap to do and requires a lot of technical ability and tools... In the UK a cylinder head gasket replacement would cost about £1000 - probably the same in US dollars

If it is the cylinder head gasket, try a special additive in the coolant system. The images below are generic. You will find similar products in the USA:

For radiator/block sealant have a look for something like:

However, if you're determined to replace a gasket yourself, it's a workshop manual you need.

1998 nissan maxima problem water in the oil


If there is water in the oil, it wouldn't last long under the heat/pressure of the engine, so if you are seeing water it must be super fresh. Are you losing coolant? If so, then i'd suspect water pump/water pump gasket if you never had that replaced. It could be head gasket, but you would probably experience a consistent coolant loss with maybe loss of power or misfiring. You can check with a pressure/leak down test for head gasket. Either way, if you are losing coolant I'd check water pump. If you aren't losing coolant than it can't be the water pump or head gasket really letting "water" in.

I have a 2000 Nissan Maxima and it has been leaking coolant come to find out it leaked into the oil. Now car will not start, how do I fix it? Thanks


does car turn over or is it seized-if seized might be better to look for a new ,rebuilt or bone yard motor depending on ur $$$ status---if turns over coolant gets into oil by either bad or cracked intake or intake gasket----blown head or head gasket---cracked cylinder these are the cuses that oil and coolant mix and neither is a simple fix will need to pull motor apar for repair

My 1996 Nissan Maxima has a milky colour engine oil & white smoke from the exhaust.


you probably have a leaking head, water is getting into the oil. if it does not stop, then try some engine seal, and engine honey. if that doesnt work, be prepared for some major work.

I am about to have my water pump changed on my 1996 Nissan Maxima. If there is water in my oil what other problem could it be beside the water pump? Thanks, Sandie


I just had to changed my water pump today. Its not the difficult for person handy with tools and a common sense demeanor for cars. Unfortunately, if its not the water pump, then its most likely the Head Gasket.

Does your oil look milky or foamy? If so go to next...

Do you see water with antifreeze dripping under your cars motor near the passenger front tire? "If so, then its most likely your Water Pump Problem"

If not, then its your head gasket!

1993 twincam max with oil pumping into radiator. runs perfectly, seems to be a one way leak, no water in oil or trans


check the intake or head gasket, for they may be bad. Engine oil leaks can occur at the intake manifold gasket, at a blown head gasket, or within a cracked head or block. good-day !

Leaking water between the motor & the firewall. any ideas


Probably one of your heater hoses, which flows coolant to the heater core in the dashboard, is leaking back there at the firewall.

Engine Oil in antifreeze in my nissan sentra 95 1.6 L.


Could be a head gasket that is leaking at an oil passage. Do you have antifreeze in the oil also?

See if the intake has blown a gasket it could be leaking water into theoil. If its getting hot then you probly have a blown head gasket. Julie

1995 Nissan Maxima Over heating, no heat blowing, water not moving


Simple thing to test first would be to pressure check the radiator cap. Next would be to check for combustion gases in the radiator indicating a leaking head gasket.  It is an aluminum head and iron block engine and there is a possibility that antifreeze anti corrosionpackage runs out due to over age then fails due to too long in the engine it results in galvanic corrosion at the head gasket-commonly resulting in a failed head gasket.  There are other engines that are vastly more prone to this than the maxima engine.  If there is a leaking head gasket the gases could rise to the top of the system and block the water flow into the heater.  Listen for gurgling sound in the heater.
