How do you drain coolant from engine block on Nissan Quest 2001?
Open the drain valve on the side of the engine block.
Where on the engine block of a 1987 Nissan maxima are the coolant system drain plugs and after you flush the system do the drain plugs have to be replaced?
yes in a way. block heaters heat the coolant in the block there for warming the block up. coolant heaters heat the coolant out side the engine like in the hoses and radiater. and when the coolant gets hot enough it opens the thermosate and starts flowing through the engine..The coolant heater should be hooked into the engine so that it heats only the engine and the heater core. If the coolant heater is trying…
Kind of. There are water jackets inside the engine block and usually the heads of a liquid-cooled engine Water (or coolant) will either flow from the block to the head to the radiator, or from the radiator through the head to the block (a reverse flow design). The latter is better because it cools the heads first and helps prevent detonation. It also reduces thermal shock to the engine block.
I need to drain the engine coolant from the engine block on a 1997 transport. Where is the engine drain plug located?
Take it to dealer and hope they do it correctly, There is a plug on bottom of radiator loosen and it drains coolant out of radiator, but not out of engine, There are plugs on the side of the engine block that have to be removed to drain coolant out of block. Probably impossible to get to and accidents happen, sorry I hope this helps some.
Check the radiator coolant level! When it is low, and RPMs decrease at low speeds or idle, the coolant isn't being circulated through the entire cooling system, such as the heater core! Be sure the engine is cool before opening the radiator cap and adding coolant! NEVER add coolant to a hot engine because it will crack the block or cause the head gasket to blow!
Why would you only get 2 quarts of antifreeze out of your radiator when there is supposed to be 11 quarts of fluid in the system?
Find the Engine Coolant tank on the front passenger side of the engine bay. Look straight down into the gap/space between the Engine Coolant tank and the main engine block. You will see a small tube-shaped oil filter sticking out from the bottom of the engine block area. On the 4.0L it is on the passenger side of the middle of the block. On the 4.7L it is on the driver side front of the…
The head gasket sits between the head and the engine block if it is leaking out where you can see the coolant, yes you can smell the coolant if it is leaking into the engine no you cannot smell the coolant. You can check the oil to see if it has coolant in the oil if it does then the head gasket might be blown.
If your coolant is brown, this means it has LOTS of rust in it. If this is the case, then you need to flush your cooling system and refill it with fresh coolant. Be sure to drain your engine block as well as your radiator, as MANY people neglect to do this. Without draining your engine block, you are basically just changing half your coolant.
