I am an Infiniti service advisor. The water pump is driven by the timing belt. Perform a full timing belt service with new drive-belts, thermostat, water pump, timing belt, and ENSURE you replace the camshaft seals and crankshaft seal. There are quite common to leak. I would recommend visiting your local dealership as this service is quite extensive. Also, be prepared for a crankshaft pulley replacement, which you have to remove anyhow to do the timing belt/water pump. The pully itself is around $250. The other parts run $200-400 and labor is 9.0 hours with everything I mentioned. If you've had your timing belt replaced in the past, recommended service interval is 105,000 miles, all these parts I mentioned should have been replaced. Especially the cam and crank seals. If you're unsure, check your repair invoice from where you had the work performed.
