3. Remove reservoir tank as necessary, and drain engine coolant and clean reservoir tank before installing.
4. Check drained engine coolant for contaminants such as rust, corrosion or discoloration.
If contaminated, flush the engine cooling system. Refer to CO-12, "
FLUSHING COOLING SYSTEM" .
REFILLING ENGINE COOLANT
1. Install reservoir tank if removed, 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-143,
"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.

6. Warm up until opening thermostat. Standard for warming-up time is approximately 10 minutes at 3,000
rpm.
? Make sure thermostat opening condition by touching radiator hose (lower) to see a 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).
