Hi I’m new on here and I could use some help.
I have a 2006 Nissan Maxima and I can’t figure out what is up with my coolant system.
To start I replaced my motor with a good used JDM but before installing into my car I put a new timing set in it as well as a new water pump, thermostat and, after the engine install, new radiator and hoses.
After adding the coolant and burping it I’m still having some issues. The are the upper and lower radiator hoses are very hard and the lower radiator hose and bottom of the radiator is cold to the touch even after driving. And the one that really baffles me is the overflow bottle will lose coolant after a few days. So I have looked and see no leaks and no coolant in the oil so no clue why the overflow is losing coolant.
With all this said my temp gauge doesn’t go past the middle so I assume it’s not overheating.
Has this happened to anybody else? If so, how did you fix it? If not, any ideal what I can do?
