2002 Xterra got hot stopped in traffic for 10 minutes a couple of weeks ago. Temp went to normal as soon as I started moving. Antifreeze full, radiator not dirty, no leaks or indications the pump is going bad. I tried to get the X to overheat again or at least get hot enough to get the clutch to lock up and and it just freewheels with a bit of resistance. I let it sit and idle for 20 minutes and it didn't overheat. The thermostat is a bear to get to so I'll change the fan clutch first. best OEM price I've seen is $137, Rock Auto has them from $25 to $65. The only brands I recognize are Hayden and Beck/Arnley. Anyone have any likes?
