Have you replaced your drive belts?? i have seen a guy install the alternator belt the wrong way on the same model year vehicle and it would overheat in the bay after about 10-15 minutes at idle. the water pump was spinning backwards, not pushing coolant through the engine. its very easy to do that on your car and the belt will actually go on and tighten for you and it will all look ok, but its not.
also there is a bleed screw for the coolin system for you to loosen up before you refill the cooling system. if you drained the coolant to change those things that you changed, did you re-fill it properly?? you may have an air pocket in the system, but that should work its way out after a while, which will lower coolant level in the system, so you have to add coolant to top it off.

Where is the thermostat located on a 1994 Nissan Altima GXE?


Follow the hose that goes from the top of the radiator to the top of the engine. The hose is black flexible, roughly 1.5" in diameter. This hose goes into a "gooseneck" on the top of the engine, secured with a clamp. Remove the clamp and the hose, and remove the gooseneck from the engine. The thermostat will be located underneath the gooseneck. Simply lift out the old thermostat, install the new one, and replace the gasket. Reassemble.

1998 altima overheating


It may be the thermostat, but you should also check:-
1) Coolant level is at correct level (full) when checked cold- prior to running,
2) Cooling fan/s are running normally as they should when coolant temp rises,
3) A coolant hose on the suction side of the water pump is not collapsing (due softening) causing restricted coolant flow,
4) Radiator coolant core is not blocked, or radiator heat dispersion air fins blocked with insects/grass,
5) Engine does not have other running problems that cause it to overheat.

How many termostats does a 2003 nissan altima have and how easy to fix.


There is one thermostat for coolant and it is located at the end of top radiator hose inside the kneck that it connects to. To replace this the hose has to be removed and then the kneck,thermostat is brass colored valve that covers center of hole,clean old gasket from block side and kneck replace with new one and gasket with a bit of rtv sealant tighten kneck evenly when putting it back on,connect hose wait a short while for rtv to set up and should be good to go,"make sure engine is full of coolant b4 reassembling,just pour strait in engine if it isn't or you can damage new thermostat.overheating can also be sign of water pump not working as well so if still having problem then it is possible cause and on older models radiators get clogged.

Replacing the radiator system for nissan altima 1998


Drain coolant from the cooling system. White plastic drain plug in bottom of radiator.

take off bottom rad. hose and top rad hose.

All wrenches and sockets are either 10 or 12 mm. Remove air shroud from around radiator and fan.
Sometimes its easier to remove fan too.

If its an automatic, remove 2 rubber hoses at bottom of rad.

remove 4 bolts top and bottom that hold rad. in place.

reverse order of parts. Fill with coolant and check for leaks.

That is the basics of it.
