#2924 of 2937 Heating Issue/ Radiator
Aug 12, 2012 (4:37 pm)
Hi, I recently got my infiniti 2003 g35 checked by the mechanic and was told my radiator had broke, and so I went ahead and replaced it myself. However, now when I try driving my car I see that the same issue is re-accuring before I replaced the radiator. My COLD-HOT gage keeps going up and I'm afraid my car may over-heat. When I try turning my heater on, it stays cool and never warms up to the temperature desired, for instance 76 degrees. Any suggestions/help on this one?????

Hi, I just recently purchased a g35 sedan with 131,000 miles. I was wondering since the mileage is so high I'm going to take it to a mechanic for a tune up. My question is what should a tune-up include and any suggestions on how much I should be charged. Thank you guys!

Sounds like the water pump. If the thermostat was stuck in the closed position it would overheat. In the open position it would never get to operating temperature as the coolant would keep circulating. If the thermostat is working properly but the water pump isn't, when the thermostat opens the coolant doesn't move from the engine to the radiator. The heater cools the coolant in the heater core then runs cold. Check it out.

Today's vehicles don't need tuneups. You just replace spark plugs and the air filter. The plugs should have been replaced at 100,000 miles. You can pull one and check it yourself. You can also check the air filter yourself. Or have your mechanic check it.

is there any chance you "double-gasketed" the filter---a common error, when the gasket from the old filter sticks to the engine block.
Also, any chance you're tightening the filter too much?
Just checking the basics first....
the oil pressure regulator valve attached to the oil pump so that would require removal of the oil pan.

the filter and all is ok, no double gasket old on came right off. i cleaned the area well and replaced filter hand tite

so you are 100% certain the leak is around the oil filter itself?
If so, the next thing I'd do is get an oil filter from Nissan. They have built-in pressure relief valves.
