Head gasket needs replacement. You'll find coolant in the cylinder when pressure tested.

No heat in a 2007 Altima blows only when you are on the gas


Your present thermostat seems to be stuck in the open position and not allowing coolant to warm to temperature. I think you should have your thermostat changed. This will give you heat. GOO LUCK FRIEND.

Heater core may be clogged. Try flushing it to see if water flows through freely. Also check the heater water control valve for restrictions.

2002 nissan altima heater problem


have 2002 altima,blower works no heat at idle and very little heat when accelerating.I changed carbon cabin filter,made sure little gear under dash to temp knob wasnt broken,flushed and bled system.Nothing worked so checked hoses to heater core and found inlet hose was hot,outlet hose was not.So investigated this problem and came to conclusion heater core was clogged.An easy way to check is to get car to normal running temp. put on heater and blowers at full.Go under dash on passenger side where counsel meets firewall,this is where heater core core inlet and outlet aluminum tubbing go through firewall,you will be able to feel both tubes one closest to you is outlet, so if this one is not hot and and other is your heater core is clogged.I detached both inlet and outlet hoses to heater core from water control valve.Then I blasted water with waterhose and nozzle set at jet,first through outlet hose to blow gunk out,then through inlet hose until water runs clear.Reatach hoses fill and bled system.heater works great nice and hot!

1995 Nissan Altima - a/c blows warm air. Several other problems, car has a loud idle and will often die out if I do not keep the a/c or heat setting on low, then the car idles normal. Just moved to Fl


Possibly bad compressor, worn bearings in a pulley or lines TO compressor. Also, perhaps wrong refrigerant added. Sometimes it makes a difference as there are some 7 different kinds.

No heat. Both thermostats replaced.


Pressure test the cooling system. Remove the spark plugs and inspect the top of the piston. Look for coolant. If you can see your own eye you found coolant. If the cooling system was properly bled and still no heat at idle you may find coolant in the cylinder. The head gasket would need to be replaced and the surfaces prepped. Machining the head is not recommended.

Heater blows cold air at low speed and idle 02 nissan altima


I worked at a Nissan dealer for 18 months and we'd get a lot of these in. The cold heat at idle is accompanied by a sloshing noise from behind the dash - you've got an air pocket in the heater core. What we used to do was lift the front end of the car about 3 feet off the ground using the hoist and take the rad cap off. Then we'd run the engine at a fast idle (jam a screwdiver against the throttle stop to hold it fast or put a slight weight on the pedal if it's Electronic Throttle Body. Run the heater on full heat and the engine like this. You'll see the rad 'burping' as the air in the cooling system travelling to the highest point it can - the open rad cap. Top up with a 50/50 mix of coolant and water as you go. When it burps no more, you have a full cooling system and should not suffer any more "cold heat".

If you do this yourself, PLEASE use jack stands, block the back wheels and put the parking brake on!!!
