I have a 2002 sentra thats been having a overheating problem lately. One day my radiator decided to pop and crack at the top (plastic yay!) Anyway I replaced the Radiator and hoses and themastat all that good stuff flush the system the whole 9 and it seems to still be over heating. Could be a number of things im sure I just wanted to see a few ideas people might have out there. So thank you all for listening and please let me know what u think

Try bleeding it do below

Always bleed air from cooling system after replacing coolant. Set heater for maximum heat. Remove radiator cap. Loosen drain plug and remove drain bolt (if equipped) from engine block. Drain coolant reservoir. Fill coolant reservoir to MAX mark with 50/50 water-coolant mixture. Loosen bleed bolt and fill radiator up to base of filler neck. Close bleed bolt when coolant flows out without bubbles. Tighten bleed bolt. With radiator cap removed, start and operate engine to normal operating temperature. Add coolant if necessary and check for leaks.

Good Luck
