Dec 22, 2009 I worked at a Nissan dealer for 18 months and we'd get a lot of these in. While keeping the bottle tool full of… say it with me. This is my last Nissan I will ever own. Place the new heater core inside of the heating and cooling unit, and reassemble the unit.
Nissan says the coolant mixture must be between 50-55% ethylene glycol based antifreeze and water. If no leaks found you most likely have a slow head gasket leak into one or more cylinders.

Not if you're dealing with Nissan. This of course was after I had thermostat and water valve comes with a new thermostat replaced.
If you want all the mumbo jumbo you can get a copy from your Nissan dealer. The goal is to remove humidity from the air before it hits the cold windshield where it would condense and cause fogging. Everything seems to be okay. Run the engine at 1500rpm, giving it a little rev every now and then, until the cooling fans come on. These steps apply to replacing an electrically operated engine cooling fan in a Nissan Altima and, while more challenging than the same procedure on some other vehicles, a novice can accomplish them with little more than a wrench and screwdriver in an hour or two. Much cleaner way to do things. Set the parking brake, and block the rear wheels.
All fluid levels have been checked and are fine, no issues there. They are available for the following Nissan Altima years: 2013, 2012, 2011, 2010, 2009, 2008, 2007, 2006, 2005, 2004, 2003, 2002, 2001, 2000, 1999, 1998, 1997, 1996, 1995, 1994, 1993, 13, 12, 11, 10, 09, 08, 07, 06, 05, 04, 03, 02, 01, 00, 99, 98, 97, 96, 95, 94, 93. Like, I can lift that hose up a good inch or two. And take the reservoir tank hose off of the fill neck. Many Nissan Altima enthusiasts are dissatisfied with the sound of the original equipment manufacturer's horn and choose to replace it. In models made around the turn of the century, the core is located behind the steering column, meaning you mainly need to remove that.
If combustion air sneaks into the cooling system, that can form an air pocket. I changed carbon cabin filter,made sure little gear under dash to temp knob wasnt broken,flushed and bled system. Cut or drill a hole in the bottom of the jug smaller than the outside of the hose so it will make a good seal. Once I'm on the highway, the air eventually turns luke warm and if riding extended period on highway, heat will turn warm. Run the heater on full heat and the engine like this. Next, low coolant can cause this to happen, so make sure it is full.
The problem doesn't come up on diagnostic readings. Most orders are shipped the same day. Don t use anything skinner than a coat hanger. You can't blame the dealer for this one. Try one that specializes in radiators if there is one in your area.
Remove the instrument panel by removing all of the securing bolts and clips. It blows cold air through windshield or vents.

You'll see the rad 'burping' as the air in the cooling system travelling to the highest point it can - the open rad cap. You'll likely get really hot air from the heater. What we used to do was lift the front end of the car about 3 feet off the ground using the hoist and take the rad cap off.
The heater blows cold air! I will not be purchasing another Nissan, not because of the problem, but for personal reasons. Jan 07, 2011 Have you tried asking them to just flush the system, as well as reverse flush? We sell wholesale to the public. Drain the engine coolant from the cooling system. Some guy or woman came up with a really cool tool that looks like this. Even then, if you sat at a red light, the heat would gradually become cold. One week later tank was real low.
