make sure your cooling fan is coming on also nissans are fussy the coolant mixture has to be right or they wont work properly -37f to -45f max and the bleed these systems properly front end must be elevated about 2 feet

I earlier had the cooling fan assembly replaced, I know that that is working. I will let my mechanic know about the coolant and bleeding. Thanks!!!
