Re: 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

If there is water in the oil, it wouldn't last long under the heat/pressure of the engine, so if you are seeing water it must be super fresh. Are you losing coolant? If so, then i'd suspect water pump/water pump gasket if you never had that replaced. It could be head gasket, but you would probably experience a consistent coolant loss with maybe loss of power or misfiring. You can check with a pressure/leak down test for head gasket. Either way, if you are losing coolant I'd check water pump. If you aren't losing coolant than it can't be the water pump or head gasket really letting "water" in.
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
Heat Shield is loose - it's flopping around. Sounds like an engine issue, but it's not.
I had the same problem on a '93 Altima & again on my 2003 Maxima a few months ago. A local garage fixed it for free both times. For the Altima, he just removed the shield. He advised that I do not park on high, dry grass as contact with the grass might start a fire (around here, cars are usually on pavement all the time - the grass thing was not an issue - and, there were no fires). On the 2003 Maxima, the garage was able to replace the rusted out clamp using some scrap material they had lying around. The heat shield was resecured into position. No more pinging.
I had Nissan take a look at the 2003 Maxima repair afterwards. They said the garage did a nice job.
It sounds like water pump may be your problem. It circulates a 50/50 mixture of glycol (or some form of) and water
through the engine block and cylinder head and back through the
radiator. In the radiator the mixture is cooled when air passes over
the fins of the radiator. This is accomplished by driving or a
mechanical/electrical fan when stationary. The water pump also
circulates the mixture through the heater core giving the car heat. If the water pump is not circulating the water back to the radiator to cool, it will overheat. More heat is caused by the engine when driving (much less heat when idling), hence the overheating while driving. I hope this helps and good luck!
You need to replace the thermostat in the radiator, they are very inexpensive and most times you can replace it yourself, if that doesn't help, drain the radiator and buy a drain kit and radiator cleaner, it will remove rust corrosions and anything else blocking up the flow, replace fluids and check to see if it runs properly, worst case senario is that your water pump needs to be replace cause Nissans are notorious or I should say Older models are and water pump seems to be the thing that goes out before anything else
Electronic throttle assembly failure, which has throttle position sensor built into it, that is a sensor for the transmission and tells the computer where the throttle is to adjust/shift if needed. I would look into the throttle assembly.
