Sounds like bad luck! unless whoever changed the water pump for got to hook something back uo that they had to remove to get to water pump! chech fluid and look very closely around water pump for un hooked wires or small hoses

How to troubleshoot a high pitched whine in the right fron side of my Nissan Maxima 2004


Could be one of the belts slipping or worn out. Might even be the water pump bearing. Does the whine increase/decrease as you rev? Whine louder if you suddenly accelerate?

I am about to have my water pump changed on my 1996 Nissan Maxima. If there is water in my oil what other problem could it be beside the water pump? Thanks, Sandie


I just had to changed my water pump today. Its not the difficult for person handy with tools and a common sense demeanor for cars. Unfortunately, if its not the water pump, then its most likely the Head Gasket.

Does your oil look milky or foamy? If so go to next...

Do you see water with antifreeze dripping under your cars motor near the passenger front tire? "If so, then its most likely your Water Pump Problem"

If not, then its your head gasket!

1996 nissan maxima... i have properly reinstalled my alternantor and noticed that my belt pulley tensioner is screeching. what is the proper order of washers on the pulley bolt?


Its likely the tenisinor was the cause of the alternator problem in the first place its a big ware part leeding cause of belt failure water pump alternator power steering and ac compressers . You would be wise to replace it 96 likely has never been done .And its far cheaper then all of the above parts 20 to 30 dollars

Do i need to change my timing chain when i change my water pump on a 96 nissan maxima?


Not necessarily. You should at least consider it if you are close to a major service milestone (90k, 120k, etc.). It is a lot of work to change the timing chain (belt), but you have to do some of the work anyway to replace the water pump.

1997 nissan maxima with 3000 24 valve twin cam v6. I am need a water pump.What comes off to change.


Hello and thank you for using FixYa!

To replace the water pump, you will need to remove all the drive belts. Then there are 2 black covers on the front timing cover. One cover is for the chain tensioner, the other is for access to the water pump. I would recommend you replace the tensioner the same time you do the water pump. The reason is, you need to remove that tensioner so the chain has slack. When the chain has slack, you can then unbolt and pull the water pump out. It could get stuck, so there are bolts that you need that you would use to run in to pop the pump free.

Hope this helps , Thanks Jay!

Can over heat cause by failure of water pump?


water pump in 03 max is internal inside the timing chain area. worry free, unless you have coolant leaking behind the a/c compressor bracket and down onto the ground. thats how you know if pump went. and yes, you can overheat a car if water pump fails, but maxima water pumps are pretty bullet proof, that;s why they are iternal
