Default How to Remove Air From Your Coolant System

If you have experienced a 'running/swooshing of water sound by the passenger side of your car that means you have air in your coolant system. The sound is similar to the sound you hear when you turn on your home A/C. The fix is pretty simple. Following these steps have worked for a lot of members as well as myself.

With the car COLD & TURNED OFF:
1. Fill the coolant container to the max line.
2. Open the coolant cap on the radiator & fill to the top.
3. Start the car & turn the Heat on allowing the fans to kick in while moving the coolant through.
4. Once the car gets up to its normal temp & the radiator filled to the top, bubbles should start coming out which is the air that is in the coolant system.
Once the coolant starts to over flow -- Cap the radiator using a rag or towel so you dont get burned.

That should solve your problem. If it doesnt -- try 1 more time when the car is cold again & make sure the coolant container is filled to the max line.

Good luck.

Nice write up...

Nissan recommends either jacking up the front end or doing this on an incline (ramps) for best results.
