Nissan Quest V6 Replace Radiator and Bleed Air

I recently had to replace the radiator in my 13 year old Nissan Quest. I noticed couple of weeks back the radiator was leaking antifreeze at the top where the plastic top connects to the aluminum body of the radiator. So it appears the radiator is just old and it’s time to replaced it. I purchased a replacement radiator for this vehicle from Amazon and it arrived promptly.

The installation is very straightforward. For this vehicle, you do need to remove the battery and tray first so you can remove the fan. Once those things are out, the rest is not too difficult. You will be draining all the antifreeze in the radiator, so have a drain pan ready to catch the fluid. In total, you will have to remove 2 radiator hose, and 2 transmission lines. All the details are in the video on my channel.

The last part to complete the install, is to properly bleed the air out of the coolant system. This can be tricky on some vehicles as air may get trapped and not bleed properly. I will show you in the second part of the video how to properly do this. You should pick up a Lisle Spill-Free funnel to help with this job.

Why is your in cabin filter black?

Most modern cars these days come equipped with an in cabin air filter. The purpose of this filter is to clean the air vented from the outside and vents to inside your vehicle. Typically you should change it every 24,000 miles or check/replace every 2 years. This interval can be shorten if you drive in dusty or polluted environments.

You will find the in cabin air filter located behind the glove box and procedure will vary depending on the vehicle you have. In this video I will show you a comparison between an old air filter and a new one.
