nissan v36/g35

Hi all posted this in another forumn on here no replys so ill try in here.:)\


i have a 2007 v36 sedan low mileage 64000 km
Out of the blue i heard air bubbles behind the dashboard after starting up,i lift the hood and see the coolant tank rather full,so immediatly you think head gasket,well i did.And with cap off i see big bubbles coming up not the fine ones i was expecting.
So off to the mechanic he pressure tests the cooling system no problem found so he suggests throttle body off for a leak down test and compession test on all these test nothing found to suggest head gaskets.
where can these bubbles come from? its got him a bit stumped He did say its a possibility for the water pump to suck air in,anyone seen this?
I have no water in oil and no oil in water,the car runs fine.

Thank you for taking the time to read any ideas would be great........phil

It would have to be something that is high up on the motor or the component that is allowing the air in would be leaking. A failed water pump seal can lead to bubbling so that is a possibility. If HG issue are you seeing coolant mixed in the oil or white smoke?

No oil in water. No water in oil. I don't recall white smoke. But have now marked reservoir to see if any is going somewhere… I just got hold of a co2 tester and bubbles didn't show co2 present 🎁.
Thanx for reply

I have seen some indicate that bubbles can be pulled into the system via a bad radiator cap as well. Something to look into.
