Question about Nissan Sentra

1 Answer

Hey, I've go a nissan b14 1995, and the cooling system isn't working. The fan turns on when it reaches the mid temperature but after a while of using the car, the water on the tank starts boiling and coming out of the water tank. there seems to be no leaks of water. bad thing is I cannot drive long distances... and the car shows that the temp is always normal... (never goes up from the middle) any suggestions?

Check temperture with thermometer if above 210 degrees check thermostat for correct operation and one easy way to check this is to drive at hyway speed then quickly check for boiling if not thenypou might have a blown head gasket /when car isnt hot or boiling pull radiator cap and smell for gas fumes or exhaust fumes if so its a blown head gasket napa sells a head gasket kit that you can easily use to check this also

Cooling Fan Not Working


if the fan is electric, the problem is probably the fan thermostat. usually fitted into the water pipes near the radiator.

Overheating problem, what is the most probable cause?


You need to stop using it immediately before you
cause some damage or more than you may already have
That is just common sense. It should not overheat or
be any different than it was in the past without problem

The car has to be checked over/diagnosed,tested,etc for
various issues to resolve

Borrow or Rent a car until resolved

No way to guess at the problem

You should have some type of codes avail even
if the check light isn't on,you need professional help
to get a start on resolving

The timing belt maybe worn & jumped or the head gasket
bad.

Over heating isn't usually a cheap repair unless the thermostat
sticks partially closed

The RPM moves around the car is 11 years old,so it may just
need a though going over

Timing Belt,O2 Sensors,Exhaust Converter,Spark Plugs
and such

If you depend on a repair shop to do things & don't
have the knowledge to request work done throughout
the year,then you run into a lack of proactive preventative
maintenance situation. Most things are simple looking
back, once resolved

93 4runner new radiator new t stat still overheating.


Check:

1. Thermostat. Replace with an OEM one from the dealer. 2. Radiator. Make sure it's not plugged up. 3. Radiator Cap. There cheap from the dealer and I consider them a maint. item. 4. Water pump. How many miles are on it? 5. Fan Clutch. Make sure it has some resistance
6. Temp. Sensor for the gage.Have you checked that the electric cooling fan is turning on when the engine reaches operating temp? A faulty coolant temperature sensor will not trigger the fan, or the fan itself or fan relay could be shot. You might also have a head gasket leak that is not into the cylinders, so it would overheat without causing milky oil. Another possibility is a clogged radiator -- with 15 years on the vehicle, it's quite possible. Have the cooling system pressure checked, and replace the radiator cap for starters -- if the radiator cap isn't holding pressure, overheating will occur rapidly.

2002 ford taurus overheats. Just replaced radiator, waterpump, thermostat and heater core. what else can i do to repair. also, ford flushed the system.


About the only thing that you didn't list is the cooling fan. Are you sure that it's working properly? Drive the car until the engine starts to get hot. After awhile you should hear the cooling fan come on. After you have driven the car for a while, park it and open up the hood. If the upper radiator hose is almost too hot to touch, then check to see if the coolant fan is running. If it isn't, then turn the AC switch to "AC MAX". If the fan still doesn't come on, then a malfunction is indicated. Try to locate the fan control relay and swap it with another relay that has the same part number. Use a relay that will allow the engine to run. Allow the engine to reach operating temperature and see if the fan comes on after switching the AC switch to "AC MAX". If the fan now operates, then replace the relay. I hope this is helpful to you. Thank you for trying Fixya.com. If this does not solve your problem, then post a comment and I will respond by getting into more advanced diagnostics.

Radator fans will not come on 1996 neon


The older Dodge neon cooling system has always been a problem, so this will not be easy to diagnose and repair.

A little background. There is a temperature sensor in the coolant system that sends that information to the PCM and the PCM then sends a signal to your temperature gauge to register it. Once the temperature of the preset peak, the PCM then sends a signal to the cooling fans to turn on, so the do NOT run at all times when the engine is turning, only when the coolant level reaches a preset level (in the 200F to 235F range). The one exception to that is when the AC is turned on, the radiator fans should be told to turn on. So start the car, turn on your ac and see if the cooling fans turn on. If yes, you don't have a problem with the cooling fans. But that doesn't mean that you don't have a problem with your cooling system. If the car is overheating, you need to find out if the PCM is sending a signal to the cooling fans to turn on. If it isn't the trouble could be in the PCM.

I have changed the thermostat, and Waterpump. But it is still overheating. Someone said that it might be the head gasket.Will that cost me alot of money? Will that sovle the problem?


Before you tackle the head gaskets I would check a couple other things first:
  • If you just replaced the thermostat and the water pump, that means that you've recently added coolant to the cooling system. I would check for air bubbles in the system by 'burping' it. In order to burb the system you need to open it up either at the radiator cap or at the bleeder valve. On a lot of cars you can find the bleeder valve by following the upper radiator hose to the thermostat. Slightly open the bleeder and squeeze the upper hose a few times to try and work out any air bubbles. You can also run the engine with the bleeder open or the cap off to try and circulate the coolant and allow any air to escape. Air bubbles in the system can cause overheating.
  • Another thing you can check are your fans. Run your car for a while at idle to allow it to heat up. When it gets to the point where it starting to overheat check your cooling fans to see if they're running. If they're not, chances are that the coolant temperature sensor has gone bad which is fairly inexpensive and easy to fix.

If it does end up being the head gaskets then yes, that would cost a lot of money to repair. Let's hope that's not it.

Good Luck!

Cannot get cooling fans to turn on for radiator???


The cooling fans won't run until either the engine coolant temperature reaches about 218 degrees or the air conditioner/defroster are on. Once the engine reaches appx 218 degrees the fan will come on and run until the coolant temperature drops a few degrees and will then turn back off. If either the a/c or defrost are turned on then the cooling fan will begin to run to remove the heat from the a/c system and should stay on until either is turned off. If the engine is overheating in slow or stop and go traffic then the fan may not be working at all due to a bad fan motor or blown fuse.

My cooling fan does not come on when car is started.both the ac and cooling fan comes on when ac is started


The cooling fan is required to operate when the engine temperature rises above the maximum operating temperature threshold.
After the car is started, it will usually take some time for this temperature to be reached.
Ensure fan runs when fan control temperature sensor switch demands.
