Local Almera Overheating

Postby chris87 » April 1st, 2012, 12:25 am

Got a local used almera , while driving i realized the temperature guage raised to high temperature. Stopped the car and allowed it to cool down.I have a metal radiator but and checked to see if there was any loss of coolant however the coolant in the radiator and reserve tank were topped up as usual. i drove the car for about 5 minutes home with the temperature guage going straight to high and dropping and going back to high. i was wondering if this problem could be the thermostat or the fan?

looks like the thermostat sticking. Get it checked before something more costly happens.

start the engine and turn on your AC. are both fans coming on?
turn off the AC, are the fans coming on before the temperature gauge goes over half?

the fans come on as usual when the ac is on and when it is overheating the fans come on when almost on high. it seems strange as the temperature is back to normal today. getting it checked out tomorrow.

Just in case the problem persists after you changed the thermostat, check out your temp sending unit. Experienced this same thing on both a frontier and civic where the vehicle "overheated" but there was no bubbling or lost of coolant.

mechanic advised not to place back thermostat but can this have any adverse effects?

I was advised not to remove my thermostat from any of my vehicles because the temp would read lower than optimum. This could be overlooked but If the ECU reads temp is lower it causes more fuel to be injected into the engine to heat it up. So you fuel economy would be affected mostly. Could be BS but it makes sense.

I recommend getting a check for any bad grounds, had a 323 playing up with that foolishness.
