1990 Nissan Pickup - Overheating/No Heat

Showing 10 out of 10 Posts
Question From Britches on 1990 Nissan Pickup - Overheating/No Heat

Hello,

I have a 1990 Nissan pickup. Right now it has no thermostat and runs no higher than the "C" on the temperature gauge. If the thermostat is installed, it runs hot. Here's a timeline of what's happened to it as well as what's been done to it:

1. Timing chain wore a hole in the timing chain cover causing the truck to overheat.
2. Timing chain cover was replaced and a new timing chain kit was installed.
3. Truck was overheating so we turned the heat on to help cool engine and no heat came out of vents.
4. New water pump and thermostat were installed.
5. Truck was still overheating and still had no heat so I had someone check for blockage in the lines and none were found.

I really want to get the thermostat installed so I can get it up to operating temperature. Why does it run hot when the thermostat is installed and why is there no heat?

Thanks in advance!

Response From jespo Top Rated Answer

You need the t-stat for the heater to work . So open the radiator cap, start it, look inside the radiator see if the fluid is moving, if not the radiator is blocked. Usually it would be the t-stat but because you don't have one it can't be that. Also look at the upper and lower radiator hoses see if they squeeze shut by themselves, if so replace. Make sure radiator is full of 25% water and 75% anti-freeze or all anti-freeze. A bad tune up would also make it over heat. No oil will make it over heat. Bad carb will make it over heat.

Response From Britches

If the radiator was blocked, wouldn't the truck overheat with the thermostat out? I assumed the radiator wasn't blocked because I figured if it was, the truck would overheat even without the thermostat in. However, without the thermostat, it runs super cool. With the thermostat, it overheats.

Response From Britches

Someone suggested it might be a blown head gasket. What are you guy's thoughts on this?

Response From dave284

Signs of blown gasket, steam from exhaust pipe/sometimes rough running/overflow of antifreeze, do a compression check when in dout, you could have a bad temp sending unit?,does this vehicle have a fan clutch.The last time I ran into a problem like this I had found several cooling passages clogged up with corrosion thru out the heads and block

Response From slipperyslope

If the engine wasn`t overheating before the timing chain episode,and wasn`t severely "cooked" when the timing cover wore through,I would think there is most likely air trapped inside the cooling system. Is there a bleed valve anywhere on the engine? If so open the valve with the engine off and add coolant to the system.IT COULD TAKE A WHILE! If no bleed valve see if there is a small hose up high on engine that can be removed to allow air to be bled off. It`s worth a try.

Response From Britches

I'm not sure if this helps, but my mechanic said that both the lines going to the heater core are still cold even when the engine is overheating.

Response From Guest

Just wanted to thank everyone for their help and advice! The problem has been fixed! He flushed the system, installed the thermostat, and bled the system. Now the heat works and the system doesn't overheat. Thanks again!

Response From Tom Greenleaf

Partially agree with jespo. No t-stat will run a flow of coolant more than useful to just the front of the engine and can be overheating where not detected. Boiling coolant won't transfer heat nor does air in the system.

The radiator is suspect. I'll suggest just 50/50 anti-freeze as higher concentrations don't transfer heat well and alone can cause overheating! NEVER USE STRAIGHT ANTI-FREEZE! Without water anti-freeze will turn to slush when cold and with water stays a liquid.

T-stats are mandatory as they also allow for mixing of the coolant within the engine to be a uniform temp and without one they may only cool locally where the gauge reads the temp. An engine that boils at one end and overheats at the other is highly subject to damage from uneven expansion of metal parts,

Question From brewmvt on Heater Broken / Overheating

Vehicle : 1993 Nissan Pick-up truck
Miles: 190,000

Okay, so my truck has been overheating and I have replaced my thermostat, waterpump, fanclutch, and radiator. I even hooked up a hose to all my different parts of my trucks cooling system to make sure there was correct circulation (ex. hose to the heater core). I have used a flush system to clean out my cooling system, no help.

The only thing that I can say is that my heater doesnt work,(most of the time). A/C works great(untill overheating).

So what could be the problem?

Thanks!

Response From DanD Top Rated Answer

With everything that you have done I think the next thing would be to have someone or yourself do a block test on the engine.
It only takes a couple of minutes to do the test and it will tell you whether there is any combustion gases in the cooling system.
If there is then you may have a blown head gasket or cracked cylinder head.
The tester kit is available at most parts suppliers and I think it’s less then $50. to buy.
Here’s a couple of pictures of what some styles of kits looks like. The liquid that you pour into the tester starts out blue and if it turns even the slightest yellow once you’ve drawn the fumes from the rad through it, you’ve got some form of combustion chamber leak.
Dan.

Response From brewmvt

Hey thanks for the feedback, I will try that! I still dont know why my heater doesnt work sometimes, maybe a seperate issue that happened recently?

Response From Tom Greenleaf

As Dan showed with graphics, I will add that your heater will NOT throw out heat when you have air/exhaust gases, or just bubbles from boiling over! It sounds strange but heaters quit when you overheat enough. That and the potential damage to your engine means this should be taken care of yesterday!! I'll go one step further and say change your oil a couple times early after you're fixed up. - T
