1997 Nissan Maxima 6 cyl Front Wheel Drive Manual 230000 miles
I have been given a '97 Maxima which has been owned by a friend since day one. Very well maintained. However, the night he calls to tell me he was going to give it to me, it overheated on the interstate and died. He waited awhile, got it started & drove approx 8 miles home. He has taken in quite a bit of coolant and died after idling for 5 minutes. I went over there today and filled the coolant up to the max line on the resevoir and started it. Idled fine, but the heat never warmed up, even after 15 minutes. The temp gauge never went over the halfway point. He had the thermostat replaced about 2 mos ago. Could it be a bad one or just stuck open? Or, do I fear something worse?
have the same problem?
