I have a NISSAN GXE 1.8l I can’t diagnose the overheating.

Has new water pump, thermostat and radiator.
New belts as well, I drop some new platinum plugs.

So basically, my problem I’m having that 5th replacement thermostat keeps opening up and dumping radiator fluid into my resovior; here’s the funny thing it does only when turning right if the car been on. Turning left has no problem.

Things I’ve kind of ruled out is tensioning of the belt.
Due to the fact this does 70 on the interstate.
Sometimes the car has to have it rev up to start, but I think that might be another thing. Please I need help on this, it’s my only work car and if it dies my money goes with it😓

5th thermostat? Someone isn't finding the source problem. You probably are not filling coolant properly full and now with overheating near certainly real has caused or the result of other problems.
Pressure check suggested if it will hold and doubt it will then find where it loses pressure check those plugs for wetness or differences also probably get those out for OE only plugs if those are not the suggested OE plugs.


Time to save this engine before it's too late it not already. The issue is cooling systems must hold pressure to raise boiling point as engines run higher than that the coolant mix (you do need an antifreeze mix always) will boil and not cool engine as vapor, liquid does. The turning right showing the problem is probably just liquid shifting to a hot are on engine and boiling away fast when it touches a hot area unseen.


Vapor/air usually is not filled properly or a leak not found earlier up to head gasket and or head itself not longer intact.


Get on it 5 tries with a thermostat is not doing it properly or crazy bad luck with them now not likely,

That's a totally ridiculous statement.
