There's always the accord wagon or the civic wagovan,

The Fit is wagonlike in nature, I feel.

I'd love an Accord wagon...maybe an '04?

You can't get 'em in the U.S.: they don't burn enough gas for our culture.

Ok I tried to change it again and I lost about a gallon of coolant from the engine itself. I added coolant to the overflow tank, should I be scared that I will overheat my engine???

I would bleed the air out of the system but if it's full with no air then it is fine.

My PCV system doesn't have any coolant in it.

Well I'm an idiot yet again. There is instruction in my FSM how to only drain and add coolant if I drained the system. My dealer was like add some water. Anyway since I have AAA I'm just going to have it towed to the dealer and pay $130 to get it done. I needed a coolant flush anyway, so this just speeds it up.

Dude, just run it with the radiator cap off and bleed it, it takes a few minutes and doesn't involve doing anything in particular besides adding coolant as air bubbles come out.

Comaq888: I am really confused. I thought you were trying to change the PCv valve. Their shouldn't be any coolant being lost. If you lost coolant, you should just replace it with a 50/50 mix of antifreeze and distilled water. I don't know what year your Nissan is, but almost everything I have is from around 90-94 and they use a little bleed valve at the top of the engine, where the upper radiator hose attaches. If it has that, just find a spot that has a little bit of slope, put the car up slope, running, let the bleed srew out until it starts letting air/cooleant out, then leave it until you get all coolant, then close the bleed valve. Then you should just need to put a mix in the overflow for the radiator and you should be good to go.

Compaq: Are you talking about the radiator overflow tank?

The problem got fixed. Svoboy talked me through the whole thing. I bled the system and added fluid.
