my 2012 altima ran out of coolant 2 times fixed hose refilled coolant. it is running will it be ok?
granddaughter was driving it. i was told about this a couple days later. she drove it until it died. let it cool. then started t back up drove it till it died again. my son went to the car and found a small cut in top radiator hose which some tried the heat tape on. he cut the damaged hose off since it was next to radiator and put hose back on radiator. then filled with antifreeze. i had him do burp on the next. it seems to be doing ok.just wondering how long before there might be a issue.The head gaskets on QR25's and VQ35's are both pretty sturdy, but a lot depends on how bad it overheated and whether you kept driving it with the engine hot. If you shut it right down and let it cool off before moving it further, chances are it's fine. If you kept driving it for more than a few minutes or miles, you may well have hurt something.
