Nissan maxima 1999 temprtr increase more than half ,when increase speed ( new ladator replaced also plugs) some times shutdown


Hi,
The problem would be the radiator is somewhat already blocked. The coolant cannot flow freely to the radiator to the engine.
I would recommend that you bring your car to the nearest garage/radiator shop and have them replace or repair the said problem.Ask the mechanic also to check the thermostat valve, sometimes the valve is stuck up and did not open up freely and made the coolant passage too small for a proper circulation.
The temperature gone up during high speed means that coolant did not circulate properly!
Hope that solves your problem.
Thanks for asking FixYa!

Its been running hot and had trouble starting. now it won't start at all, i installed a new battery


i would check the thermostat, most of overheating problems are thermostats. also check your radiator top and lower hoses to make sure they are not collapsing, this goe's for heater hoses also. also you might want to check out the coolant temperature switch, that is normally located on the intake manifold, i assume that your radiator is circulating coolant good, if so, check the items that i have mentioned. hope that this information has helped you.

3.3L Engine

Fig. Thermostat assembly and related components-3.3L engine

NOTE Never remove the radiator cap when the engine is hot. Serious burns could occur from high-pressure engine coolant escaping from the radiator.
  1. Be sure the engine is cold.
  2. Disconnect the negative battery cable.
  3. Drain the coolant. Properly disposed of used coolant.
  4. Remove the upper and lower radiator hoses. Remove the fan shroud.
  5. Remove the drive belts and the pulley bracket.
  6. Remove the water inlet retaining bolts.
  7. Remove the water inlet and the thermostat.

To install:
  1. Installation is the reverse of the removal procedure.
  2. Be sure to apply a continuous bead of the proper grade and type RTV sealant to the housing.
  3. Install the thermostat with the jiggle valve or air bleeder at the upper side.
  4. Be sure to refill the cooling using the proper grade and type engine coolant.
  5. Start the engine and check for leaks.
  6. Start the engine and allow it to reach operation temperature. Recheck the coolant level, fill as required.

Hope helps (remember rated this)

1. Improper water circulation: Sometimes, eventhough you are sure that you have enough water on your radiator, your car still overheats. It might probably be that the water is cannot circulate properly, which results to improper cooling process. There are several reasons for this which you can discover by yourself. To verify if the water circulates properly, start your engine without the radiator cap. If water circulation is good, you should notice that the water pops smoothly over the top but still retains the amount. Another way to check, detach one of the ends of your radiator hose from your radiator and see if water flows continously over.
If water doesn’t circulates well, check the thermostat if it’s open. It should be open, meaning clean, and the water can pass through it.
If thermostat is clean and still the water doesn’t circulate properly, then you have to check the water pump. That’s probably where the problem is. A little leak on the pump will cause improper flow of water through the radiator system.
If you are sure that the problem is not about water circulation, another thing you can consider is check the engine oil. Very low amount of oil can cause greater friction of the mechanical system of your engine. If it’s not time to change oil yet, you can add over some amount of oil until advisable amount is reached.
While we can’t be always sure about our engine, especially if it’s not new, we should be prepared when it happens. Bringing extra gallon of water in your trunk will surely help.

I have a 2001 nissan xterra 6 cyl I have replaced the thermostat and still its overheating. What is the next step?


I can't believe that your radiator is shot, it's a new truck. How about clogged? How about full of bugs or hay in the front? How about the coolant? Are you running coolant or water? Look for white smoke or steam coming out the exhaust after it warms up. This you don't want to see. I would get it to a radiator shop and have them check it for a blown head gasket. They will be able to tell what's happening.

My 04' over heating when idoling and ac is on


Fixed problem HERE........................


We changed thermostat, belts, water pump, hoses... you name it we changed it nothing worked. Just before we ordered a new radiator I took a few pics sent them to my dad and instantly he said to remove the bleeder bolt then fill radiator. That's it guys months of overheating a lot of money and hours of work when in the end it was so simple, cost nothing and took 2 mins.


Turns out most the Nissan motors have a type of bleeder bolt or something (not sure what its called exactly) on top of the motor and that should be removed while filling radiator. step 1 wait till engine is cooled down all the way. step 2 remove radiator cap. step 3 remove the bleeder bolt on top of motor (look around for it. Its just a little old bolt all alone) step 4 slowly fill radiator until coolant/water to come out of the bleeder hole. step 5 put bleeder bolt back in. step 6 put radiator cap back on. That's it. Good luck



if you do not do these steps air get caught in the system and when heated turns to steam. and your radiator cant circulate that steam because the hot air raises. The steam will just sit at the top of the motor and block the coolant/water from circulating through the radiator like it should. Without it passing through the radiator correctly it will not cool. Having a new radiator helps because when they installed it they probably filled it correctly (by removing that bleeder bolt). They knew they could have just filled the old one correctly but there isn't any $$$money$$$ in that for them. trimble7383_0.jpg
