Why would the radiator fan continue to run after the engine stops after the thermostat was replaced on a 1997 Nissan Altima?

It isn't a problem. Electric radiator fans sense the temperature of coolant and if it is above a certain threshold the fan will stay on until the temperature drops down, even if the engine is off. It's normal. Don't try to fix something that isn't broken.

The thermostat on a 96 Nissan Altima is located on top of the engine at the upper radiator hose. It is contained under the thermostat housing which holds it in place.

the thermostat is located at the engine end of the lower radiator hose inside of the housing that the radiator hose connects to.

Ingeneral, the fan will run only if the temperature of the radiator is above the normal range. If the fan is running, then the radiator must be over temp unless the radiator fan thermostat or it's relay is defective. If the radiator truly is over temp then you have a larger over-heating problem You state the thermostat was replaced. if you replaced the fan thermostat then either the radiator really is over temp and it is doing what it should, or there is a problem with the thermostat-fan relay or switch. If you replaced the engine thermostat that controls the flow of coolent between the engine and the radiator, then that probably wasn't your problem and you should look elsewhere for an overheating cause. I would start by determining if the engine actually is overheating or not. If it is, I would look for coolent system problems like the engine thermostat (if you didn't replace it already), water pump, leaks, scale build up in the radiator, or blockages in the system. If the engine isn't overheating then I would consentrate on the fan, fan thermostat and relays.

There are numerous reasons why a Nissan Altima will overheat. One such reason is a closed thermostat or the radiator may be leaking.

You have to remove the thermostat housing, which is located right where the top radiator hose clamps to the engine. Take off that housing, and the thermostat will come right out. Be sure to install it the same way you took it out...

The thermostat on the Nissan Altima should be directly behind the alternator. This will be on the passenger side of the car and directly under a large heater hose.

Should be located in a removable housing at the engine end of the upper radiator hose Drain about 1 gallon of coolant from the radiator Remove this housing Note how thermostat is installed Clean both surfaces Replace thermostat and gasket Re-fill coolant slowly to prevent an airlock Start engine and look for leaks Run engine to normal operating temperature with heater on Re-check coolant level In my 1999 Nissan Altima the thermostat is located on the lower hose under a housing as described above. this is very unusual place but that is were mine is located.

Drain the radiator. Remove the belts driving the pump. The pump can then be unbolted and replaced. Make sure to use new gaskets during the installation.
