Nissan Maxima Owners Manual: Changing engine coolant

A NISSAN dealer can change the engine coolant.

The service procedure can be found in the NISSAN Service Manual.

Improper servicing can result in reduced heater performance and engine overheating.

WARNING

  • To avoid the danger of being scalded, never change the coolant when the engine is hot.
  • Never remove the radiator cap when the engine is hot. Serious burns could be caused by high pressure fluid escaping from the radiator.
  • Avoid direct skin contact with used coolant. If skin contact is made, wash thoroughly with soap or hand cleaner as soon as possible.
  • Keep coolant out of the reach of children and pets.

Engine coolant must be disposed of properly.

Check your local regulations.
