Question about 1998 Nissan Sentra
Hi i have a 1998 Nissan Sabre and today the heat gauge topped and i used coolant & filled Water but it Spits it out.. Please Help
It would seem that your overheated engine has warped the cylinder head and compression/pressure from the combustion chamber is adding to the pressure of the water/cooling system hence the spitting out. To verify, pls check your oil dipstick and see if the oil has turned to brownish milky color. If yes, then it calls for an engine overhaul, if not possibly air pockets inside engine water jackets.
Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.
Good luck and kind regards.
Thank you for using FixYa.

Add a mixture of one-half water and one-half antifreeze to the radiator. Fill it right up to the top.
Fill the overflow/coolant reservoir with the same 50/50 mixture.
Leave the radiator cap off, turn the engine on and let it run until the radiator "burps": You will see the coolant level drop and may see or hear a large air bubble come to the top as the system burps.
Keep an eye on the temperature gauge throughout this process.
Refill the radiator to the top and coolant reservoir as needed.
Put the radiator cap back on.
