Nissan Repair Questions? Ask a Mechanic for Answers ASAP
please explain..did the heat just quit?..or did it quit after some work on the cooling system?
its daughters car she says its been not working sense summer I guess its the head gasket
does the engine over heat?
shes says no says the temp gage goes to mid and stays
ok,,and never needs to add coolant?
been adding about a qt a month
lets try something simple here first
lets bleed the system this way,,,just to make sure it doesnt have air in the system
1,you need to remove the radiator/reservoir cap when engine is cold
2-start the engine and let it idle
3-turn the heater on high
4-keep coolant on hand and add it as needed...some coolant may gush out with the air,so be careful
5-keep doing this until the engine is at operating tempeture,the heater is hot and the coolant in the radiator settles down
6-then install the cap
been adding sense 2006,,,I tried that ,,it got to temp but the heater hoses are cold
does it leak any coolant?
if it does I have never found
it is very posible for it to have a blown head gasket
sense it is using a little coolant
and,,you have no leak
how does that keep it from flowing I,m not geting ant thing with cap off running
i would think the compression is equalizing the pressure,,,causing the coolant not to move to the core
you are very welcome
