Question about 1995 Nissan Maxima
I am replacing the water pump of my 1995 3.0 v6 infinity (same as altima) but my son removed the chain with out marking it, now I need to set the timing. How do I do this? There's marking on the valve sprockets and on the chain. Thanks
Line the marks on the chain to the sprokets and it should be ok, is that what we call a qx, a32 chassis seires?

This should be the same engine as the Maxima. If that is the case, there is no reason to remove timing chain or get it out of time. The pump is driven by the timing chain, but is not "in time".
The pump is under its own cover. The chain tensioner is under its own cover. The pump is removed after the tension is released on the chain, the tensioner pinned in its retracted position to take tension off chain, and the crank is rotated about 20 degrees counter clockwise to slacken the chain at the pump sprocket without coming off the cam sprockets. Then, the pump is remove by removing its mounting bolts and then screwing in three long M8 bolts as jack bolts into 3 holes (carefully and evenly) to jack out pump. The pump is sealed from the engine case by two o-rings that must be replaced. I think the pump mount bolts are sealed with silicone when replaced. I would get a Haynes or other reliable manual.
If you truly have to reset or check timing, definitely get a book.
