Re: Coolant


[sign in to see URL] of genuine Nissan coolant needs to be used for the T30 and I would advice using nothing else but a genuine Nissan coolant if you you want to avoid casting sand and blown head gaskets as a result (see problems associated with the use of non-genuine coolants [url=[sign in to see URL]

Re: Coolant


This is just a cut and paste from another thread with my experience with Nissan coolant

quote:

...... Interesting fact was that Nissan Service sold me 3 x 1 litre bottles of L248 Coolant (part number 120120 LLC001)) as the Nissan part for the L2N coolant. It is not premixed, and is allowable at any value between 33 percent and 50 percent. They RECOMMEND putting 3 litres of coolant in (for a 7.1 litre coolant series 1 Exy), filling with tap water, and topping the resovoir with tap water as required until next coolant interval change.



Been in there around 1 year (I think) no problrms at all.

Hope this helps Johnesy... emoticon

Re: Coolant


Yep no worries, picked up 5 litres of coolant plus radiator bung with "O" ring, thought it's not a bad idea to change it aswell. Service advisor stated 30% is the optimum ratio but can be up to 50% as you have stated. Should have enough for 2 coolant changes as 30% mix will be ok for down to -14 degrees according to product information.

Re: Coolant


Forgot to add that I used demineralised water as opposed to boiled tap water(same as purchased from supermarkets for irons/ steam mops etc in 5 litre containers).
May possibly (my belief) stop "scaling" or mineral build up in the core.
Cheap as chips, and just top up as required. Bought 10 litres a year ago and still have a 5 litre bottle in the [sign in to see URL] it in the washer bottle as well

The way water prices n Brisbane are [sign in to see URL] the hell not emoticon

Re:


[sign in to see URL] the rule.

My last service (80k) was done by Nissian.

However, today I noticed the level of coolant very low, so me, totally forgot about using geniuine Nissan Coolant and topped up with another (about half litre) of coolant. How long before this coolant can have a detrimental effect?

Re:


Sorry mate, mixing coolants is a big No No. Get it flushed if you want to avoid a costly repair bill later on!

Re: Coolant


Big Concur on that. Flush that crap out ASAP. Id be taking out both Thermostats then put the covers back on and run the hose with a medium pressure through the engine for 10 mins or so.

Re:


Thought I'd go for a dig instead of starting a new thread.

Going to replace coolant this weekend (I just bought my [sign in to see URL] start a thread for that soon).

Everyone is recommending the [sign in to see URL] I find a little odd, but I will trust people with experience as I know with motorcycles it can be an issue.


Just called Nissan and they want $[sign in to see URL] for 5 litres of Genuine coolant - Part #10120LLc005 (aka on bottle L248).

This is the stuff [sign in to see URL]



My question is: Can somone please confirm if the genuine is pre-mix or concentrate? People on here are saying concentrate, but Nissan told me it's pre-mix. If that is the case, I'll need 2x5L bottles costing ~$120

Anyone able to take a look at their bottle and double check for me? If it's $60 for concentrate I'll go with it, if its $60 for pre-mix, I'll do more research.

thanks emoticon

Re:


Chris I have not bought a 5L bottle (no need) but my bottles of 1L (3x 1L bottles is the way to go and a bit cheaper) have a part code 10120-LLC001 which is definitely concentrate. You can tell as it says 1080g/L Ethylene Glycol on the ingredients or something like that, the 5L bottles should say that as well. Strange they say it's premix, wonder if their service department would say that!

The easiest thing to do is flush it, get to plain water (tap is OK if your water is soft otherwise demineralised or rain water), then you'll find that you can only fit about 3L of concentrate into the radiator with the system sealed up anyway after draining via the radiator, which means your 4L for mixing is back in the engine already mixing it up to 7L or so, so just over 40% (3/7.1). If not then just top up after the 3L with water.

Just get 3x 10120-LLC001, should cost about $40 for the 3 bottles.
