I have a coolant leak that is coming from the drivers side area near the air filter and top of transmission. Are there any coolant hoses on that side, I cannot see if the water is coming from a hose or...

Hi Chris,Your vehicle is a front puller with transverse engine. You need to remove the air cleaner housing and all allied units. Underneath it you will see a number of coolant pipes. There are those leading to the cold start system and the thermostat housing. Before beginning any work make sure the engine has stood until cold. When you have full visual you should be able to see stains where the coolant has leaked out. The marks are usually easy to distinguish. Do not remove pipes from a hot engine, as apart from the possibility of burning yourself, rapid changes in temperature may damage the engine. Make sure to fill with 40% coolant and add water to until full. Best regards Johngee10

if the coolant is low enough, there will be air/space at the top of the engine. where the temperature sensor is located. also where the thermostat is located. air heats up much quicker than water. an abnormally fast rise in temperature might be due to the temperature sensor getting hot because not ehough coolant is flowing through the system. to check coolant level, wait until the engine is cold. remove the radiator cap by pushing down on the cap with the palm of your hand and turn counter clockwise. there will be a safety stop about half way around. this is to prevent the cap from blowing off in the event of pressure build up. again, push the cap down and turn to remove. if you see no coolant, there is a leak in the system. fill with the proper anti freeze. note the quantity. get the leak fixed.

the thermostat may be bad if there is no leak. have it replaced.

there could be a collapsed hose restricting flow

the temperature sensor may be bad, but you would probably get a check engine light

the water pump may be bad, but you should hear some noise if that were the cases.

my bet is a leak or the thremost

Hi, nissan stanza 91 engine overheats and smell burnt and white steam coming out from it, but the indicator on dashboard remains normal, in the middle. what shoul I try, to fix it?

You could possibly have air in your cooling system. If the dash gauge temperature sensor does not have coolant flowing past it, it will give a false temperature reading while your engine is actually overheating. If you recently drained and refilled your cooling system, you might need to bleed the air out of that system. If you didn't drain it recently, you might have a leak that's letting out coolant and letting in air.

My 2001 Nissan Quest temp gauge rise to hot, cools then get hot

You better not be driving your car overheating like that and shutting off on you! It sounds like you've most likely lost all your coolant due to a leak of some sort, and your engine is overheating. I would take the vehicle to a shop make sure you don't have some kind of major coolant leak. They'll also want to do a "block-check", which is a fluid that can detect combustion vapors in the coolant, that would indicate you've blown a head gasket due to overheating. It's very bad for an engine to run without coolant, even for 10 minutes. I'd have the vehicle towed in unless the shop is right around the corner. If you'd like to check your coolant level yourself, make sure the engine is cold or at least the vehicle has been off for an hour. Checking the overflow tank level may not be good enough. You'll have to remove the radiator cap and determine if you've got any coolant in the radiator. If not use either regular pre-mixed green coolant, or if you have non pre-mixed dilute it to a 50/50 ratio coolant and water. I wouldn't continue to drive your van with it acting up like it has until you can get it checked out.

I have replaced the thermostat on my 1991 Nissan Stanza, and would like to know where the Air Bleed screw is for the coolant system?

Having owned a Stanza for over 10 years, there is not a coolant bleeder screw on that car that I'm aware of. I just run the car with the radiator cap off until the thermostat opens, then add coolant as the level inside the radiator drops and the air gets circulated out, then replace the cap. After the car totally cools off, add coolant as needed to the overflow bottle, to bring it up to the recommend maximum level. Always worked for me.

Engine coolant indicator

make sure that your fans are working first. to do this. start veh and let idle until it warms up. but if it starts to get hot and fans do not turn on, check fuses. if they work then look for leaks.

It may be temperature sensor on radiator. Dashboard gets info from it. If this sensor is not good, ac will stop and dashboard willl show some strange temperatures.
