No Fluids in any vehicle are consumed,nor do
they ever need to be topped off

So you have issues.

If you can not see a leak, then have a
combustion test done at the radiator,
for exhaust gases,that may indicate
a bad head gasket

Engine tepmrature goes up or down when i turn on the heater


That is pretty much normal, the heater blower fan acts like the radiator does and helps cool the water passing through it by extracting the heat from it. then once the car inside temp warms up it goes back to normal. Nothing to worry about.

The temp gauge on my 2008 ram 1500 jumps from normal temp to hot checked engine the temp is fine my heater them puts out cold air and I have no heat if I shut heater off and wait a few minutes temp gauge...


It probably low on coolant. The heater will blow cold when there is not enough water (coolant) to keep the heater core full. Check the radiator (not the overflow reservoir) when it's cool.

No heat unless I am moving


My 2008 had the same problem. It turns out that the coolant system, if not filled properly will cause air to block the transfer heat in the heater core. This is what I did, and it worked, while your motor is cold, pop open the caps on your radiator and your overflow. Top off your radiator to the brim with antifreeze, put caps back on. Start and bring up to operating temp, (I just drove to the grocery store). This will work any vapor bubbles trapped to get flushed out, and then repeat. This can take 2 or 3 times. Easy fix.

I would like to know the actual temp it should run after changing thermostate. It runs about 1/2 way up. But when you cut it off and restart it its above 1/2 for a minute or so. I bleed the air valve on it...


When you run the engine, the coolant will remove heat and release it in the radiator. After you shut the engine off, the heat from the cylinders will still be there and the coolant will heat up some more. This is normal since there is no cooant circulating through the radiator.Without an actual temp gauge, there isn't any way of knowing just how much warmer it gets. I own a 1994 F 350 and have installed actual gauges. I can run my truck and watch the coolant temp. If I shut it off for up to 20 minutes, the gauge will go up ( sometimes as much as 20 degrees) when I start the engine, but return to the normal temps as the coolant is ciculated through the radiator.

My 2001 nissan sentra doesn't have alot of power until after it warms up. it won't even go up a hill. What could be wrong with it?


Possibly the intake air temperature sensor or the engine coolant temp sensor are stuck at full hot. The computer will schedule too little fuel--especially with the engine cold and you'll have very little power until the engine actually gets closer in temp to the stuck sensor. The engine coolant temp sensor sends signals to the computer NOT to your temperature gauge on the instrument panel. That is a different sender. So your coolant temp gauge on the instrument panel may show normal.

My 03 Jetta TDI temperature gauge had been indicating that the vehicle is operating at below normal temp some of the time. Even after a highway run. I had not had a rad flush in since l owned the car...


I think the light you are seeing is for low coolant. There may have been a small air pocket in the system. So just check the coolant level. If it is low add some. It's not uncommon to add a small amount a day or two after work was done on the coolant system.

I have a really strange problem with my Nissan 2006 Pathfinder. The heater will not heat up and blow out hot air as long as the vehicle is sitting idling. When I want to defrost the windshield on frosty...


Since your blower is working and it is a heat issue,thats where we'll start,First thing is have you checked the coolant level in the radiator when engine is cold,make sure it is filled to top,next verify you have coolant in reserve ,Start your van and get it up to normal operation temperature,If your heat gauge on the dash works correctly it should be 190 degrees,Now lift the hood and locate the two heater hoses going into the heater assembly at the fire wall,Both hoses should be hot to hold on to,if both are hot and no heat inside your problem will be the blend air door in heater assembly.
if neither hose is that hot you need to replace the thermostat in the engine to get it up to 195 degrees.
if one hose is hot and one is luke warm then the heater core is blocked and to blame. hope this helps y

Nissan dealer claims they replaced the heater pump [not the water pump], is there such a thing as a heater pump?2005 nissan pathfinder


Yes, your Nissan Pathfinder has a heater pump. The heater pump circulates the hot coolant from your engine to your heater core(s). You have two heater cores if you have rear temperature controls. My guess is that your problem was that you had very little heat or no heat at idle. Attached is the page from the service manual on how to replace it.
