NISSAN ALTIMA THERMOSTAT PROBLEM

2003 Nissan Altima • 162,140 miles

When I start my car in the morning to let it warm up, it never warms up while sitting idle. No matter how long I let it warm up it never does until i've been driving for about 15 minutes. Could this be a problem with the thermostat?

Yes, most likely the thermostat is stuck open or missing. Does the gauge show snything after 5 minutes if engine running?

This might be electrical instead of temperature problem. It could be the gague that is causing the problem.
