3.3L Engine

how do I replace the thermostat on a 2000 v6 - 7d00e82.jpg

Fig. Thermostat assembly and related components-3.3L engine

NOTE Never remove the radiator cap when the engine is hot. Serious burns could occur from high-pressure engine coolant escaping from the radiator.

  1. Be sure the engine is cold.
  2. Disconnect the negative battery cable.
  3. Drain the coolant. Properly disposed of used coolant.
  4. Remove the upper and lower radiator hoses. Remove the fan shroud.
  5. Remove the drive belts and the pulley bracket.
  6. Remove the water inlet retaining bolts.
  7. Remove the water inlet and the thermostat.

To install:
  1. Installation is the reverse of the removal procedure.
  2. Be sure to apply a continuous bead of the proper grade and type RTV sealant to the housing.
  3. Install the thermostat with the jiggle valve or air bleeder at the upper side.
  4. Be sure to refill the cooling using the proper grade and type engine coolant.
  5. Start the engine and check for leaks.
  6. Start the engine and allow it to reach operation temperature. Recheck the coolant level, fill as required.

Hope helps (remember rated this)

Before you begin to diagnose and test the stop light system (that's what's it's called in the service manual), you should look at the following
wiring diagram to try and understand how the system work. This will help you to logically walk through the diagnosis process.

TESTING FOR “OPENS” IN THE CIRCUIT

7c178f9.jpg

Continuity Check Method
The continuity check is used to find an open in the circuit. The
Digital Multimeter (DMM) set on the resistance function will indicate
an open circuit as over limit (no beep tone or no ohms symbol).
Make sure to always start with the DMM at the highest resistance
level.
To help in understanding the diagnosis of open circuits please refer
to the schematic above.
1) Disconnect the battery negative cable.
2) Start at one end of the circuit and work your way to the other
end. (At the fuse block in this example)
3) Connect one probe of the DMM to the fuse block terminal on
the load side.
4) Connect the other probe to the fuse block (power) side of SW1.
Little or no resistance will indicate that portion of the circuit has
good continuity. If there were an open in the circuit, the DMM
would indicate an over limit or infinite resistance condition.
(point A)
5) Connect the probes between SW1 and the relay. Little or no
resistance will indicate that portion of the circuit has good continuity.
If there were an open in the circuit, the DMM would
indicate an over limit or infinite resistance condition. (point B)
6) Connect the probes between the relay and the solenoid. Little
or no resistance will indicate that portion of the circuit has good
continuity. If there were an open in the circuit, the DMM would
indicate an over limit or infinite resistance condition. (point C)
Any circuit can be diagnosed using the approach in the above
example.

Voltage Check Method
To help in understanding the diagnosis of open circuits please refer
to the previous schematic.
In any powered circuit, an open can be found by methodically
checking the system for the presence of voltage. This is done by
switching the DMM to the voltage function.
1) Connect one probe of the DMM to a known good ground.
2) Begin probing at one end of the circuit and work your way to
the other end.
3) With SW1 open, probe at SW1 to check for voltage.
voltage; open is further down the circuit than SW1.
no voltage; open is between fuse block and SW1 (point A).
4) Close SW1 and probe at relay.
voltage; open is further down the circuit than the relay.
no voltage; open is between SW1 and relay (point B).
5) Close the relay and probe at the solenoid.
voltage; open is further down the circuit than the solenoid.
no voltage; open is between relay and solenoid (point C).
Any powered circuit can be diagnosed using the approach in the
above example.

TESTING FOR “SHORTS” IN THE CIRCUIT

To simplify the discussion of shorts in the system please refer to
the schematic below.
c2ba473.jpg

Resistance Check Method
1) Disconnect the battery negative cable and remove the blown
fuse.
2) Disconnect all loads (SW1 open, relay disconnected and solenoid
disconnected) powered through the fuse.
3) Connect one probe of the ohmmeter to the load side of the fuse
terminal. Connect the other probe to a known good ground.
4) With SW1 open, check for continuity.
continuity; short is between fuse terminal and SW1 (point A).
no continuity; short is further down the circuit than SW1.
5) Close SW1 and disconnect the relay. Put probes at the load
side of fuse terminal and a known good ground. Then, check
for continuity.
continuity; short is between SW1 and the relay (point B).
no continuity; short is further down the circuit than the relay.
6) Close SW1 and jump the relay contacts with jumper wire. Put
probes at the load side of fuse terminal and a known good
ground. Then, check for continuity.
continuity; short is between relay and solenoid (point C).
no continuity; check solenoid, retrace steps.

Voltage Check Method
1) Remove the blown fuse and disconnect all loads (i.e. SW1
open, relay disconnected and solenoid disconnected) powered
through the fuse.
2) Turn the ignition key to the ON or START position. Verify battery
voltage at the battery + side of the fuse terminal (one lead
on the battery + terminal side of the fuse block and one lead
on a known good ground).
3) With SW1 open and the DMM leads across both fuse
terminals, check for voltage.
voltage; short is between fuse block and SW1 (point A).
no voltage; short is further down the circuit than SW1.
4) With SW1 closed, relay and solenoid disconnected and the
DMM leads across both fuse terminals, check for voltage.
voltage; short is between SW1 and the relay (point B).

GROUND INSPECTION

Ground connections are very important to the proper operation of
electrical and electronic circuits. Ground connections are often
exposed to moisture, dirt and other corrosive elements. The corrosion
(rust) can become an unwanted resistance. This unwanted
resistance can change the way a circuit works.
Electronically controlled circuits are very sensitive to proper
grounding. A loose or corroded ground can drastically affect an
electronically controlled circuit. A poor or corroded ground can easily
affect the circuit. Even when the ground connection looks clean,
there can be a thin film of rust on the surface.
When inspecting a ground connection follow these rules:
1) Remove the ground bolt or screw.
2) Inspect all mating surfaces for tarnish, dirt, rust, etc.
3) Clean as required to assure good contact.
4) Reinstall bolt or screw securely.
5) Inspect for “add-on” accessories which may be interfering with
the ground circuit.
6) If several wires are crimped into one ground eyelet terminal,
check for proper crimps. Make sure all of the wires are clean,
securely fastened and providing a good ground path. If multiple
wires are cased in one eyelet make sure no ground wires have
excess wire insulation.

If it's a V6, it could be, or it could be the bypass house (which is recommended to be replaced when you do the timing belt/water pump at around 105,000 miles)

I need the engine diagram for a 2002 nissan xterra V6. I need to replace the thermostat & need to locate exactly where it is.


Gotta be honest, have been a mechanic for 25+ years and have never changed a thermostat in the 3.3 liter. Why you would need to remove upper and lower hoses as well as all the drive belts I have no idea but am guessing they are in the way. Anyhow, below is all the information I found in the service manual for you. I hope this helps and good luck.
