How to replace the water pump for 1995 maxima 3000?

car wa leaking oil & waater, replaced lower oil pan gasket and systems service pipe. After repairs were done engine light came on and car was running rough.
tried to get diganosis and approx cost, but have been told that they cannot check easily as meters are only good for cars after 1996. IS their an easy fix or do I need to get a complete dianostic.

Its idling rough and when acelerating its misses out. there is a fuel smell in the car. I just replaced the fuel filter. What else is going on?

we have replaced the battery the alternator everything runs fine and then the battery goes dead. after starting car i take off the positive battery cable and car still runs. help I can't afford massive repairs. car doesn't make any noise it has to be something with the charge from the alternator to the battery. with a new battery car runs fine for like 3 -4 days

no spark to spark plugs, cam and crank senors have been replaced has injector signal and fuel when cranking but no spark has changed ecu too, checked relayss and fuses lost

MY 1995 NISSAN MAXIMA WAS WORKING JUST FINE TILL RECENTLY MY CAR ALL OF A SUDDEN STARTED LOSING POWER WITH THE HEADLIGHTS ON AND WHEN I TURNED THEM OFF MY CAR WOULD REGAIN POWER AGAIN BUT COME MORNING MY BATTERY WOULD BE DRAINED. SO I BOUGHT A NEW ALTERNATOR AND BATTERY AND IT STILL DOING THE SAME THING. IS THERE SOME SENSORS OR RELAYS OR FUSES I NEED TO REPLACE TO GET MY CAR RUNNING NORMAL AGAIN? OR IS THERE A SHORT SOMEWHERE DOWN MY FIRE LINE TO THE STARTER TOUCHING SOMETHING OR WHAT? HOPE YOU CAN ANSWER MY QUESTION AND HELP ME RESOLVE MY SITUATION WITH MY CAR?

I think my anti-theft is preventing me from starting my car. I lock my door and my security light comes on, when i unlock my door it goes off. so i'am thinking that it is disarmed, but when i try to start the car no response. can i bypass the anti theft to start my car? can i permanently disable the anti theft? Thank you

How to reset a engine light 95 maxima without using a OBD1?

Can I use a universal O2 sensor with 4 wires on this Nissan Maxima that has a 3 wire harness and just eliminate the 4 wire which is a ground?
Trying to narrow down this skipping problem and starting with the O2 sensor first.
If this O2 sensor will or can work in this vehicle, then I will move on to other sensors or fuel injectors as the problem with misfire/skipping.

Thanks for any help

The vehicle will start ok and idle ok but getting up to speed it will skip and jump and stumble. I can get going to 60 or better but it is very sluggish and the gas mileage is terrible. Probably losing 10 or more miles per gallon. Three codes came up as follows...
PO170 Fuel inj.sys. lean or rich. (right bank)
PO1148 Closed loop control fault. (right bank)
PO130 unable to obtain closed loop oper. (right bank)

I changed the Oxy. sensor on the right bank before this all happened. I had a univ. sensor I scavenged from another car I junked, in great shape. I don't know if this is a prob. but the Nissan has 3 wires for the Oxy sensor and the one I put in has 4 wires. I just connected the 2 heater wires and the power wire and left the ground wire unconnected. Will this be, or is this the problem? Do any of these codes have anything to do with the Oxy. sensor...I'm guessing they do.
Thanks for any help.
