2014 and you lost an engine, did you buy it new? If you did and it was serviced properly someone should have caught the coolant problem. That is something that is checked during new car predelivery.

Tennisshoes is 100% correct! I'd be talking to my lawyer about this one! Sounds like another part failed like a hose or radiator and allowed the coolant to all come out. If something like this happens you may NOT get a warning on the instrument cluster. I know from personal experience. The coolant temperature sensor senses the temperature of the liquid (coolant) in the cooling system passages. The coolant temperature sensor will not sense air temperature. With the cooling system empty there's no liquid in the cooling system passages, only air. So your gauge on the dash will not go to hot and, if equipped, your temperature warning light will not come on! I once had a '70 Pontiac Catalina with the V8 400. While parked the lower radiator hose burst. I was at work for 8 hours and never knew it until I got about 3 miles down the road. The engine began knocking when I stopped for a traffic light. I pulled over and when I opened the hood the engine was so hot some oil deposits on the engine were boiling! I NEVER got a warning on the instrument cluster. The car survived. But that was a car from a different time. Talk to Nissan about this. If you don't get anywhere with them, talk to your lawyer. I'd say you're entitled to a free engine!! HTH. -Jim
