Yes but not excessively hard, if it starts swelling over the normal amount either the pipes are old and needs to be replaced or there is still a heat problem, the fact that your gauge reads normal indicates that things should be normal. Remember these cars are old and the pipes took a lot of beating, especially because you had heating problems.

To be safe, replace the water temp sensor and the pipes.

Pipes definitely needs to be replaced from wat I can c.been to nissan.top is R800 and bottom almost R1000 bit steep for 2 pipes.been to the spares shop guys tell me pipes are fine no need to replace them.but I insisted I wana buy new.they dont have stock.tried everywhere!!!iv checked the pipes on my np200 and even my mums almera pressure and hardness seems to.be the same on my sx.but still have that doubt in my head.

You won't get the specific pipes unless you import or buy from the stealers(nissan), I went to several places and took what I could make work, as long as there is no restriction just connect A to B.
