Likely a head gasket problem, between the water jacket and the one cylinder. Look for bubbles in the radiator with the radiator cap off before it heats up. Or run compression check on that cylinder. See if it holds the pressure after you stop turning over the engine.

This will most probably be caused by a partially blocked radiator . Remove your radiator and take it to a radiator specialists to have it flow tested .

The only way to clean and check a radiator for flow ability is to remove one of the tanks and have it manually cleaned and tested .

My Nissan Altima 2002 would not start after a bout of overheating which resulted in the changing of the head gasket. my mechanic says the problem could be from the engine head. What do you think?

If your car runs well, then the head gasket must have been the problem for the no start condition. The head could have warped causing a leak which caused the overheat condition, which lead to a further damaged head gasket.

4 cyl. cars are known for this problem, but it happens to V-8's as well.

Watch those coolant levels in 4 cylinder cars, especially.

03 nissan altima overheats,replaced both thermo 3days ago,water pump change was changed 11 month ago, today rad flush was done

A car when overheats means two things: (1) Timing may be off including electrical (2) bad head gasket. Chec for code reading with a OBDII reader to be more .
May need a tune up!

No heat. Both thermostats replaced.

Pressure test the cooling system. Remove the spark plugs and inspect the top of the piston. Look for coolant. If you can see your own eye you found coolant. If the cooling system was properly bled and still no heat at idle you may find coolant in the cylinder. The head gasket would need to be replaced and the surfaces prepped. Machining the head is not recommended.

Car is overheating, thermostat was changed and the radiator was flushed, car does not overheat while idoling, but when you start driving it overheats

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!

I have a 94 nissan altima that overheats. I

sounds like where the water pump meets the engine has warped or the gasket has been blown. Since the water pump has to come out anyway to fix it then i would suggest replacing the pump. It is 30 to 40 more.
