Hi ya so i...

Hi ya so i changed the thermastat on 2001 nissan altima an now it over heats and slowly leaks fluid it might be the seal but wondering where the bleader plugss are

Mechanic's Assistant: What is the color and consistency of the fluid? And where exactly are you finding it?

Green and 50/50 mix it looks like its coming from around the thermastat area but could be the upper hose

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your Altima yourself? What have you tried so far?

Ya fixing it myself i have replaced the lower radiator hose and clamps replaced the thermastat housing and seal and of course the thermastat

yep the grey kind

there is no bleeder valve for this car you should use a radiator funnel on the rad to bleed the system
