I am planning to replace thermostat as it takes a long time for the
engine to reach the optimum temperature.
1. Can someone please point me to the thermostat replacement procedure
2. Do I need to use the gasket to seal the thermostat housing? The
guys at courtsey nissan told me that I dont need a gasket for my
maxima as thermostat itself takes care of sealing the joint.
I just bought a thermostat for my VE two days ago, and I'm quite sure that you'll need a gasket. Now, I know you have a VG, but I went through a lot of rigamarole over that gasket stuff. Darned AutoZone flockers don't know spit!!!
I had to resort to going to Nissan for the gasket, after they got me the gasket for the VG (your car, btw..) on three occasions!
