Mishimoto 350z radiator and fan in the 350gt?
Some of you may remember I posted about needing parts cause I had a tap😓.
Booked in to get them all fitted on Tuesday and suddenly I got a funny humming noise from the bay and my engine was hot so I checked it out, sounded like the fan was pushing something so I physically pulled it back to see and the noise stopped. Figured that will be solved when I get the new landing panel in and it's sitting in the right place again as it is a bit pushed up from the bump, very carefully took my car home (luckily was only 5mins down the road).
Had a proper look and noticed firstly one of the brackets has snapped for my fan so I guess new fan completely? Or scrap yard for just the plastic shroud? noticed radiator has fluid around the top of it and looks like I got some fluid pooling in my undertray. Popped in Radweld topped up coolant, seemed to of done the job I had a little bit of weak white smoke which I assume was because of the coolant/radiator issue as it went away after a few mins. Continued to run the car to make 30mins, fans came on no extra noise everything fine.
When I turned the car off, the radiator was hissing and steam was coming out though, wondering if this most likely to mean I need to replace my radiator or could it be pipes? It seemed like the steam was coming from the actual radiator to me.
If you've got any input I would be very grateful, at the moment my plan is obviously keep the car off the road, order new sexy mishimoto fan and radiator and get them in with all the other stuff by next Tuesday. Oh and possibly cry whilst driving a rental 1.2 fiat 500 for a few days luckily I'm in Manchester for work thursday-sunday.
