Nissan Altima 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.
