Cooling fan not working, or your cooling system needs a complete service. The cooling fan should be on continuously when the A/C is on.

What happens to Nissan 240sx motor when it overheats?

A lot of bad things... Depends on how bad it overheated. If it didn't overheat for too long it should be fine, the knock sensor may have cracked though. If you drove it while overheating you could have burnt valves and a warped head. Google "burp 240sx" and follow those directions for removing the air from the cooling system, the 240 has a very good cooling system and should not overheat.

What is the difference of Nissan 240sx and Nissan 180sx?

the Nissan 240sx in American markets was released with the ka24de... a dismal attempt of a performance engine. while in Japan Australia and other markets was released with the sr20de/sr20det, a MAGNIFICENT engine, easy power gains with bolt on modifications, and an aftermarket parts list that could fill a phone book, has proven it to be one of the best performance engines coming from Japan. early models of the 180sx came with the ca18de/ca18det engines which are very popular too, but later models came out with the sr20det also. the only notable difference would be the body and interior, but the chassis remains the same.

Battery alternator and starter have been replaced in an 89 Nissan 240sx. all i hear is a clanking when atempting to start after a while its stats what can cause this problem what can fix it?

It could be the timing chain guides. 240sx engines are notorious for this. The timing chain guides are made of cheap plastic and they wear out and break off after time. When the engine is started, the pieces get kicked up from the bottom of the oil pan and make a racket for a while. I don't think is causes much harm, though.
