Nissan Pathfinder Radiator

Three Tips to Maintain the Optimum Performance of Your Nissan Pathfinder Radiator

Your Nissan Pathfinder radiator is fitted on your vehicle to keep its temperature cooled down. Because the engine can generate a lot of heat, the radiator is responsible for regulating this. It contains coolant, which flows through its system to keep your engine cool and working properly. Thus, you must maintain your radiator at all times. Once it is damaged, it can affect the temperature and performance of your vehicle as a whole. Here are some tips on how to clean and protect your radiator:

  • Flush the old coolant away to prevent contaminants from entering your radiator.

If the coolant inside your radiator is stored for quite some time already, you must drain them. This is because the fluid might be contaminated, which is not safe for circulation. This procedure is commonly known as flushing. By doing this, you can ensure that possible rust deposits that settled inside your radiator will be removed. Moreover, flushing can allow the radiator pump to be lubricated. This pump should also be maintained because this is where the coolant flows in and out of your radiator.

  • Use the appropriate cleaner, such a radiator cleaning solution, for enhanced protection.

During the flushing phase, you can add a cleaning solution in your radiator. This substance can protect your radiator from potential rust deposits that may settle and damage it. However, you must not add any cleaning fluid other than your radiator cleaner, such as bleach or vinegar. Although these are known as cleaning agents, their composition can damage the internal areas of your radiator.

  • Consider the amount of coolant that must be in your radiator.

It is recommended to keep the amount of coolant in your radiator in full amount. This is because your radiator needs to send enough amount of coolant to your engine. So a low level of coolant can damage your cooling system and your engine as well. Make sure that the coolant you will add on your radiator is clean and diluted to make the composition mild enough for functioning. 50-50 is the standard mixture percentage of the coolant and water for your radiator but it can change especially in warmer climates.

  • Troubleshooting Problems with Your Nissan Pathfinder Radiator

    The Nissan Pathfinder is a premium sports utility vehicle that gives you an outstanding engine performance. To maintain the engine's optimum working condition, it needs coolant to regulate its temperature. Your radiator is responsible for the regulation of this coolant which flows to the engine. Thus, if you are experiencing problems with your cooling system, you should definitely inspect the condition of your radiator. Here are common indications of problems linked to your radiator:

    Leaks under your vehicle

    If there is a visible pool of greenish leak underneath your vehicle, you must check your cooling system. This can be traced to your radiator, which can have indications of rusting. If rust deposits start to accumulate on your radiator, they can cause cracks and damage. As a result, the coolant inside your radiator can leak through those cracks. Another possible cause for this situation is your radiator pump. It serves as the chamber for circulating the coolant from your radiator. If it wears out, the coolant can escape from its internal area and leak outside.

    Too much heat from the engine

    When you notice that the temperature of your vehicle is highly felt because it exceeded its normal heat, there might be a problem with your radiator. This situation usually happens when you are driving at high speed and you engage in heavy acceleration. Your radiator needs a constant speed to cool down the fluid that flows through the engine. So if you are driving too fast, the fluid will not be regulated totally when brought down to the engine. As a result, your engine will overheat. Another possible cause of an overheating engine is when your thermostat is broken. Although this component is not attached to your radiator, the thermostat controls the amount of coolant that should be circulated in and out of your radiator. If it is broken, it will not be able to manage the coolant flow that leads the engine to exceed its normal operating temperature.

    Hissing noise

    If you hear a hissing noise on your vehicle, that usually roots from the coolant from your radiator. If the coolant leaks from a damaged radiator or from its pump, then it can cause your temperature gauge to indicate overheating. Moreover, uncontrolled amount of coolant brought to the engine can cause it to overheat. An overheating engine typically exhibits noise similar to hissing.
