Intermittent over heating


Asked by May 14, 2014 at 10:46 AM about the 2005 Nissan Altima

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

The alternator was changed on my 2005 Nissan Altima SER.  In order to access the
alternator, the radiator was removed.  Now it intermittently wants to heat up & boil over.  
The radiator was flushed but still wants to boil over.  What could be the problem?  Could
the mechanic have caused this heating issue?

1 Answer


Did the mechanic change the thermostat as well. It has been my experience that "intermittent" over heating is almost always the thermostat sticking. I would start there as it is a pretty simple thing to remove and replace. They are also pretty cheap, right around $7 to $15.
