Hi there. Overheating problems can be caused by multiple issues, ranging from an air bubble trapped in the coolant lines, to a faulty or damaged water pump. One items that is concerning for your 2006 Nissan Altima, however, is that they usually require coolant systems to be primed while adding coolant. Otherwise, air bubbles will continue in the lines; leading to the frequent overheating problems. To have this taken care of, I suggest that you contact a local mechanic to have them complete an engine is overheating inspection so they can determine exactly what’s causing this problem and recommend the right repairs.
