I think that you have an issue with your wiring harness under the wiper colweling. nissan has issues with those harnesses right under the cowling on the l/h side of car. the problem is right under the l/h wiper, where the harness rubbs on the wiper arm assembly and wires get exposed and whole bunch of issues develop, just like the ones that you are talking about. i had one where fans came on along with lights and other problems. I would look in there. remove the wiper arms and colwing and look at the harness on l/h side where it surves to 90 degrees. good luck.

2005 volkswagon jetta cooling fan wont turn off


temp switch fail most likely. fail safe keeps fan running so engine will not overheat. temp switch will be screwed into engine block. may be cover by cover, hoses or something else but pretty easy to replace. DO COLD for the sensor is in the collant port of the engine and will leak a little when changing. Good luck hope this helps.

Drive for about 15 mins and car get to a warm temp and then suddenly turns off with no hesitation missing or warning then will not start again for 30 mins when it has cooled down, temp doesnt get hot.


To start with check the coolant level in radiator...Your vehicle is equipped with a head temp sensor that is designed to shut motor down before it reaches temp. that will result in engine damage..If level is ok then i would look at the water pump at being your next culprit.In either case i would definetly check your temp. sending unit to make sure its operational due to the fact you state that vehicle doesnt get hot...Another thing you can check is to make sure that your cooling fan turns when car gets hot...If fan doesnt come (after you have made sure coolant temp sensor is operational) check fan relay located in power distribution box in engine compartment...

Sounds like the same old intake manifold gasket leak to me. (If it is equipped with a 3.1L engine) Check your engine oil to see if it looks like a chocolate milkshake. For the 3.1L or the 3.8L engine, make sure the coolant level is full. Check the level in the RADIATOR, not just the coolant recovery reservoir. (take the radiator cap off only when the engine is cold)

1998 altima overheating


It may be the thermostat, but you should also check:-
1) Coolant level is at correct level (full) when checked cold- prior to running,
2) Cooling fan/s are running normally as they should when coolant temp rises,
3) A coolant hose on the suction side of the water pump is not collapsing (due softening) causing restricted coolant flow,
4) Radiator coolant core is not blocked, or radiator heat dispersion air fins blocked with insects/grass,
5) Engine does not have other running problems that cause it to overheat.

it is not engine thermostat.Your engine temp is normal right? doesnt sound like expansion valve. which is basically thermostat for a/c system. make sure your cooling fans are coming on and no trash on condensor this is in front of radiator.

First check for the rad fan working. It could be the Fan relay, bad ground connection or coolant temp sensor (commands the fan relay). If not, check for little tiny bubbles in the coolant. Do this by running the vehicle with the rad cap off. Make sure there is no pressure in the cooling system first or you will get burned (squeeze rad hose, should be cool and easy to squeeze). Look into the top of the rad and watch for these tiny little bubbles. If they are present, you will need a head gasket.
