2013 Nissan Altima

Asked by Feb 04, 2015 at 04:13 PM about the 2013 Nissan Altima

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I have a 2013 nissan altima. When I take off in the car it sounds like the car is straining
really bad. The rpms go up to about 3-4,000, If i dont let off the gas, there is a loud
spewing noise, like a 2 litter coke being opened. After a few miles it will go fine. Also,
their is antifreeze blowing back out of the reservoir.

the antifreeze is the cap on correctly or any visible cracks is the air filter clean

Best Answer Mark helpful

The cap is on correctly. Its blowing out of the small hole on the side of the reservoir. I have to put new antifreeze in it every week or so. The shop says there is no leaks in the hoses and the radiator is fine.


is there an open hole on you radiator cap that is an expansion overflow tha is ment to be piped to somewhere ill look to see if I can find where that goes what about the air filter

the air filter was checked out and it is fine, its coming out the small hole no hoses to it, its the over flow hole or something. I am worried its a head gasket.....


it would not be a head gasket if it is coming out of the resevior if the cap is on all the way and right there should be a vaccum to hold the antifreeze in there and if there is a vaccum leak the antifreeze will leak

It was an axle seal causing transmission to be 2 quarts low on transmission fluid. It's running much better, checking on the antifreeze. Think it was bring filled up to hight when car was hot
