First you must disconect the smaller hoses, then the one on the top left then top right. When you disconect the small hoses expect fluid to leak out, so get a large container. Same for the larger hoses. Then put the emergency brake on (just in case) and start the car, but make sure there is something under the engine [preferably towards the front] to catch the fluid. Be sure to rev the engine a couple times. After about 30 seconds shut the car off. Now use a hose and spray it into the radiator where the cap is located. Finally re-connect all the hoses and re-fill the car of engine coolant and if its front wheel drive you will also need trans fluid.

I think the proper tire size is 13 inches in diameter It is really P175/80R13 but today's replacement is P175/70R13.

Engine overheat. Check coolant level along with radiator cap for proper pressure and radiator for any leaks.

With proper maintenance you should easily go 150,000 miles with no major repairs. It may go much longer or not. Impossible to say.

The question you ask is too involved for a proper answer. You may want to go to a car parts store, and get a repair manual for your car. They cost about $16.00 Or, go to a Public Library.

Previous answer wrong. It is not a re-clad Sentra. It is the Nissan Primera, which is a completely different car. They might share the same SR20DE engine, but the Sentra doesn't have the Primera's Multi-Link Front Suspension. With proper tires, one can handle like it's on rails when pushed into hard corners, the other will under-steer and wallow. The Primera has more mass, which translates into less jittery handling.

The 2011 Nissan Sentra wiper blade sizes are 26" drivers and 17" passenger side wiper blades. Do not buy by length-only however. See Sources and Related Links below for more information. Since there are over 22 different wiper arm attachments - be sure to lookup exact wiper blade part numbers by vehicle make, model and year for the brand wiper you decide to purchase. This ensures correct length AND correct attachment.

Mineral sludge from tap water. A good radiator flushing will help and then use proper coolant to help keep the sludge building up and blocking the radiator.

The wearing of safety goggles would be proper procedure when your face or eyes may be exposed to dust and flying objects, or to chemical splashes.

This is difficult so pay attention- (1) Remove the radiator cap (2) Start filling the radiator with a proper mixture of water and coolant(Most climates us a 50/50 mixture) (3) Once the coolant reaches the radiator neck stop filling and let the coolant go down, you can speed this up by starting the engine and letting the coolant start to circulate. (4) keep doing this until the coolant level remains at or near the top of the radiator. Happy Motoring!

To replace a water pump on a Nissan Primera one must obtain the proper parts, the proper tools, and the instructions made to fit the model of the machine.

lack of proper care. lack of proper (distilled) water in the radiator.

The tires must be inflated to the precise psi for the light to go off. If the tire pressure is too high, the light will stay on. The system should reset itself, after proper inflation, within a few miles of driving.

The problem could be: # Insufficient coolant in system # Water pump drivebelt defective or out of adjustment # Radiator core blocked or grille restricted # Thermostat faulty # Electric cooling fan inoperative or blades broken # Radiator cap not maintaining proper pressure # Ignition timing incorrect

So that it can be repeated reliably by others.

Check the radiator (and the resevoir) after it cools to see if radiator fluid has been filled to proper levelds. Also, check the radiator hoses. In addition, check the oil.

Radiator stores engine coolant for circulation throughout the engine The radiator is placed at the front of the engine and exposed to the atmosphere to keep coolant cool to maintain proper engine temperature

un hook positive terminal from battery for 5-10 min then re-connect...that will reset you brain and it will re-teach itself assuming everything is in order
