Looking down from the top, there are normally two sensors going into the housing. Malfunction is detected when the engine coolant temperature does not reach to specified temperature even though the engine has run long enough. The truck will most definitely run hot with a trailer behind it so I hope that will help them figure it out. We're here to help you find that perfect Water Outlet for your Nissan Frontier. The excess heat is used to run the heater in the passenger compartment of the Frontier. Thank you for all the suggestions.
I recently replaced the one on my 4 runner and it was very obvious where it was located. Drain about 1 gallon of coolant from the radiator Remove this housing Make note how thermostat is installed Clean both surfaces Install new thermostat and gasket Re-fill coolant slowly to p … revent an air locck Start engine and look for leaks Run engine to normal operating temperature with heater on Re-check coolant level The thermostat is located in the housing just above the water pump. Remove the exhaust manifold heat shield. At 222 degrees the needle is almost in the danger zone. If you do not do this the gasket will slip when you try to put it back on. I had to take off the radiator hose and the duct from the air intake to the manifold to get access. Again, you will be working by feel, but can periodically stop and look with the light to see what you are doing.
But the big news is the factory-supercharged 210-hp V-6… After a cold, rainy spring morning spent in futile pursuit of the wary wild turkey, my hunting buddies debated ideal vehicle configurations over lunch. Then, 2 weeks ago, on a 70 degree day, I hooked up my truck to an empty trailer maybe 1000lbs and towed it 15 miles. We briefly met under the hood of my truck and he assured me that the repair was similar to other thermostat replacements I had done once some twenty years past. Do have some magnet inserts for your sockets, You'll need them. Entering your vehicle information in our Year Make Model selector up top, helps ensure you get an auto part that fits your car, truck or other type of vehicle.
Remove undercover with power tool. If you shine the shop light up under there you can see it. Kevin by I just changed the tstat on a 97 Nissan pickup king cab with a 2400 12 valve engine and went under the assumption that everyone was right about the top hose housing being the location and it is not! There is where the t-stat housing is. Note how its installed then remove the thermostat from the outlet pipe This is a much more difficult job than it should be. Install the new thermostat in the same way as the old one. The thermostat housing is in the lower hose! For '01, the Frontier gets a significant front-end redo and interior upgrade. Steel chains are very strong, and usually not replaced until they break or if a high mileage engine is apart for some other reason.
The timing chain is steel, so what I have been told is it is really hard to wear out, if you encounter rough running engine and a tune up etc doesn't seem to change things, than maybe the chain. Once you have that, an hour or two will be enough to replace a Nissan thermostat and get you back on the road. I have a 2001 Frontier with a 4 cylinder engine. It's not right up on top like most every other car I've changed one on. I had a look under the hood and it wasn't obvious as to where it is. Note: that is the wrong housing. I hope you understand my hesitance in jumping back into the fix without some verification first.
It … takes longer to get access to the thermostat than it does to get it off. Y … ou may want to remove the fan, or you can work around it expect your wrist to get several superficial scratches which is a bit annoying. You're on your way Answer. Thumbs were raised, heads nodded. Hey all, just started getting really cold here in Vancouver, -4, and the new qx4 i just picked up is having trouble heating up.
Fill with water and antifreeze. You have to take the four bolts off the top of the engine. It was strictly the engine light keep coming back on with this one P1126 code after a bit of driving despite me erasing the code several times. Steel chains are very strong, and usually not replaced until they break or if a high mileage engine is apart for some other reason. You will be doing this by feel but can periodically stop and use the light to see what you are doing. I finally got fed up with chasing my tail and took the truck to a dealer with my main concern being a blown head gasket or cracked head.
Should be located in a removable housing at the engine end of the upper radiator hose. They are not replaced as a routine scheduled maintenance item like the rubber timing belts used on many vehicles. You can now remove the t-stat housing. Has any one had any experience with this? Checking the intake manifold vacuum makes sense too as mentioned above, for an exhaust obtruction. I'm leaning toward the thermostat. I've had vehicles that you couldn't set the timing on. At 205 degrees, the needle would start to move above the normal position, so the gauge seems to be fine.
Remove the other end of the radiator hose off the thermostat housing assembly. Also i am curious on the book time the dealer uses for changing the thermostat. I'm curious though if this is for a 350z or for qx4. My truck ran fine the whole time, just was not getting up to the right temp within the computer's predetermined time. However, for three years since I quit making modifications, the truck ran perfectly cool and the temp needle never once went above the normal operating position, even through thick sand at the beach, mountain trails and towing heavy trailers, until last summer. When none of those repairs made a difference I built new radiator fan shrouds and that made no difference. Drain the coolant from the radiator.
