ENGINE MAINTENANCE
Revision: 2005 August 2005 350Z
4. Check drained engine coolant for contaminants such as rust, corrosion or discoloration.
If contaminated, flush the engine cooling system. Refer to MA-17, "
FLUSHING COOLING SYSTEM" .
REFILLING ENGINE COOLANT
1. Install reservoir tank, and radiator drain plug.
CAUTION:
Be sure to clean drain plug and install with new O-ring.
If water drain plugs on cylinder block are removed, close and tighten them. Refer to EM-145,
"ASSEMBLY" .
2. Make sure that each hose clamp has been firmly tightened.
3. Remove air relief plug on heater hose.
4. Fill radiator and reservoir tank to specified level.
? Pour engine coolant through engine coolant filler neck
slowly of less than 2 (2-1/8 US qt, 1-3/4 lmp qt) a minute
to allow air in system to escape.
? Use Genuine NISSAN Long Life Antifreeze/Coolant or
equivalent mixed with water (distilled or demineralized).
Refer to MA-12, "
RECOMMENDED FLUIDS AND LUBRI-
CANTS".
? When engine coolant overflows air relief hole on heater hose,
install air relief plug with new O-ring.
5. Install radiator cap.
6. Warm up until opening thermostat. Standard for warming-up time is approximately 10 minutes at 3,000
rpm.
? Make sure thermostat condition by touching radiator hose (lower) to see flow of warm water.
CAUTION:
Watch water temperature gauge so as not to overheat engine.
7. Stop engine and cool down to less than approximately 50C (122F).
? Cool down using fan to reduce the time.
Radiator drain plug:
: 0.78 - 1.6 Nm (0.08 - 0.16 kg-m, 7 - 14 in-lb)
PBIC1050E
Engine coolant capacity
(with reservoir tank at ?MAX? level)
: Approx. 8.7 (9-1/4 US qt, 7-5/8 lmp qt)
SMA182B
Reservoir tank capacity (at ?MAX? level)
: 0.8 (7/8 US qt, 3/4 lmp qt)
Air relief plug:
: 0.78 - 1.6 Nm (0.08 - 0.16 kg-m, 7 - 14 in-lb)
