6. Fill radiator (1) to specified level.


6. Fill radiator (1) to specified level.

CAUTION:
Never adhere the engine coolant to electronic equipments (alternator etc.).

Pour coolant slowly of less than 2 (2-1/8 US qt, 1-3/4 Imp qt) a minute to allow air in system to escape.

When engine coolant overflows disconnected heater hose, connect heater hose, and continue filling the engine coolant.

Use Genuine NISSAN Engine Coolant or equivalent in its quality mixed with water (distilled or demineralized). Refer to MA-13, "Fluids and Lubricants".
