Overheating


Your belt may be loose and not turning the water pump enough to circulate the coolant causing it to run hot,crank car up, have some one press gas pedal and watch belt turn,if not turning tightly,then belt or tensioner is bad.

Was driving, car suddenly overheated and stopped. Put in water and water pouring out below belt assemly. Was able to get home filling radiator, stopping and filling. Is leak from a hose? Wilson


It could be leaking from the radiator or from the hose connection but you can not tell until you physically look for it. Be careful this can cause permanent and costly damage to the engine, so avoid driving it for too long.

Small coolant leak under car? is it s gasket/easy fix or extensive repairs required?


Well you have a v-6 motor, if it's leaking over by the fan belt could be a water pump or a coolant hose, you realy need to have your cooling system pressure test to fine where the leak is at, if it's water pump extensive repair.Good Luck

How do you fix the water pump on a 1997 nissan maxima? Where is the water pump located on a 1997 nissan maxima?


The water pump is located behind the timing chain cover. There are two black plates on the front cover. The one near the front of the car has the water pump behind it. The other one has the timing chain tensioner behind it. First you must drain the coolant. Then support engine and remove engine mount. Then remove drive belts. Then remove the two black plates. Push the tensioner in and lock it with a paper clip. Then remove the two bolts holding the tensioner and remove tensioner. Then remove the water pump bolts. Rotate engine crankshaft the take tension off of water pump (about 20 degrees). Then install two bolts into water pump threaded flange (M8). Tighten M8 evenly as water pump will come without damaging it. Check for corrosion. Then replace with new one. Make sure you use new "O" rings. Lubricate with engine oil. Put the original three bolts back in the water pump. Then install timing chain tensioner and black covers. Replace belts and engine mounts. Add coolant and pressure test system.

Over heating problems


If you have water leaking inside on your floorboards it is your heater core. Normally not very expensive.

On a V6 2000 Nissan Maxima where is the water pump located? Antifreeze is leaking out is this where I should start looking for the problem?


a lot depends on the location of the water leak.  If you have checked all the hoses, clamps, radiator and cap.  There isn't a lot left. The water pump is on the front of the engine under the timing belt shroud.  This would also be a good time to replace the drive belts, timing belt, any soft hoses and anything else that's iffy.

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
