You most likely have air in the system. These things can be a royal pain to get the air bleed out of the system.
Look back next to the brake booster and you will see a rubber tube with a screw cap in the end of it(this is the heater bleed), also on the front of the intake area you will see a black tube with an allen sloted cap.
Remove the slotted cap and screw the screw cc on the rubber tube. Add coolant to the coolant jug allowing the system to equalize until no more coolant can be added. Add as much coolant as possible to the engine fill( the sloted cap near intake). The heater air bleed will remain open.Replace the engine fill cap.Start the engine and turn the heater to MAX position.Close the heater air bleed when a steady stream of coolant comes from it, during engine idle. Allow the engine to idle for five minutes, add coolant to the degas bottle as needed to maintain the cold fill MAX mark.Reopen the heater air bleed to release any entrapped air and close again. Maintain engine speed of 2,000 rpm for 3-5 minutes or until hot air comes from the heater.Return to idle and verify hot air is still coming from the heater. Set the heater temperature setting to 75° F and allow the vehicle to idle for two minutes.Shut the engine off and allow to cool.After the engine has cooled, add coolant to the degas bottle to bring the level to the cold fill MAX mark. This should have the air out of the system.

There is a hose on the side of the coolant resevoir that has a straight blade screwdriver fitting in it. Open the fitting and this will bleed the heads on the LS. Without opening this you will never get the air out of the head, trust me.

– Mark direction of rotation of toothed belt with coloured felt tip marker pen. – Turn crankshaft to TDC. Mark on toothed belt guard -A- must align with mark on V-belt pulley -B-. – Check position of camshaft pulleys. The larger hole in the locking plates -arrows- must face inwards. hinweis.gif Note If the larger hole in the locking plate is positioned to the outside on the toothed belt pulley, the crankshaft must be turned one revolution in direction of engine rotation. – Remove sealing plug -arrow- from left side of cylinder block. The TDC drilling in the crankshaft must be visible (or able to be felt) in the sealing plug hole. – Screw clamping bolt -3242- carefully into hole onto limit stop so that the crankshaft is secured against turning. – Remove central toothed belt guard. – Unscrew vibration damper. hinweis.gif Note The vibration damper is secured to the crankshaft with 8 bolts. – First remove bolt -1- from oil filter housing, then remove bolts -2- for toothed belt tensioning element cover. – Remove cover. hinweis.gif Note t The toothed belt tensioning element is oil dampened. It can therefore only be pushed back slowly. t Use locking pin -T40011- to lock tensioning element. – If necessary, align holes in housing and on tensioning element piston, before tensioning using long nose pliers or a thin wire. – Turn tensioning lever of toothed belt tensioning roller -1- in -direction of arrow- using hexagon key. – Secure tensioning element with locking pin -T40011- when the tensioning lever of the toothed belt tensioning element -2- has been pushed back so that the holes in the housing and the pistons align. – Seat the camshaft clamp -T40005- into the camshaft locking plates and loosen the securing bolts approx. 5 turns. – Remove camshaft clamp -T40005- again. – Now pull the camshaft pulleys off the tapers using two-arm puller -T40001- and legs -T40001/2-. – Loosen tensioning roller -arrow- and remove toothed belt.

Temperature gauge in nissan frontier goes from medium to low randomly, also off and on roaring sound coming from what seems to be the fan while running.


This is an indication of air or gas bubbles in the cooling system, it can be that the system is low on coolant due to a leak (have a cooling system pressure test performed) or that you have a leaking engine cylinder head gasket. I would also replace the thermostat just to rule it out as a cause, it could be sticking and causing the rapid swings in engine temperature.

How do i stop my car from overheating?


it can be several reasons for your overheating we`ll start with the basics as you don`t say what you have tried yet.it could be the thermostat stuck shut which will require replacement,it could be that your cooling system is low very low on coolant and that there is a leak in the system,either the radiator,water pump, frost plug,or a head gasket is bad and causing the overheating,the cooling system will need to pressure tested and checked for leaks and damaged components replaced and the thermostat should be changed at the same time,it can also be a bad temperature sensor, also the cooling fan or fans may not be working either by a bad connection or a bad cooling fan motor,this can be checked by hooking up a tool that communicates with the on board computer and the cooling fans can be commanded to operate,if they don`t then while they are commanded you can tap on the cooling fans to see if they will start to work or if they are seized or you can hook up two jumper wires one ground and one positive and directly feed the motor from the battery to see if it will start working.and you thought fixing cars were easy,lol

Pls help me solve the issue of overheating in my passat v6 wagon 2001 model


overheating is a sign that there is a cooling circulation problem. the first things to check are: make sure your water pump belt is at the proper tension and is infact there ( not broken ),, next thing to check is the coolant level and antifreeze to water ratio:, also make sure your cooling fans are working, next thing to check is the operation of the thermostat --if it is bad then it needs to be replaced.. you might also want to do a cooling system flush - just to make sure everything stays nice and clean for the future.

hi, have you changed the coolant thermostat. you can check this by taking out the thermostat boil it in an old pot and if it OPENS it is o.k.. or bleed the system of coolant take the highest coolant pipe off WHEN COLD and lower it down if flowing then the coolant pump is working. the radiator could be blocked. the engine coolant pump fins can corode (this can warm the coolant too), need to check if coolant is ciculating. the coolant dies after 3 years. gerry
