Question about 2000 Nissan Maxima
I have removed the thermostat and replace the water pump and flush the radiator. Still overheatng. I have not Burp the system yet. Any idea?
You will need to replace the radiator. You can flush the radiator, but the water will only run through certain coils (this is the part of the radiator that is used when car is in idle). When your car is running at highway speeds it runs another route through the radiator (cannot flush this part unless you pressurize it, still not sure you will flush it out). What all this is saying is you have a blockage in your coil caused from build-up of residue. Sorry to say but its best to replace the radiator than try to flush it out and have it happen again later.
You should be able to run your a/c when your car is in idle, but highway speeds will make your car run hot. Let me know if this helps.
