How do i replace my alternator in my 2004 nissan maxima?
Basically first check battery voltage under load with headlights, fan etc on and give about 2500 rpm and check battery voltage with digital meter and expect to see about 12 volt range if Alternator faulty. If ok would be 14 volts approx.
Assuming battery voltage low. First remove negative battery terminal and proceed to take of drive belt by taking strain of belt by slackening tensioner on belt then remove and check belt for cracks etc on inside once removed. if damaged replace. Proceed and remove cowls, bolts etc as required to remove alternator. Before removing disconnect wires on Alternator. Assemble in reverse to above. Just a basic outline of how to do it.

Is it the alternator?
Sounds like a charging system problem. The engine runs off of the alternator but if it is not charging the battery properly the battery will be drained until I engine will no longer run. You need to get the vehicle to a repair shop to have the battery and charging system check for defects

Wy does my maxima 2004 take 2 litres oil each 5000 kilometers
this is an indication of a dusted engine from a badly fitted air cleaner/ hose assembly. It indicates that the oil rings are worn out or have lost their tension and no longer control the oil on the cylinder bores. IF you have had an over hart situation in the life of the motor then the tension on all the rings will be lost or there is a cracked ring that has scored the bore. Have a compression test done by an accredited engine specialist to find which is the case.
