When do you replace a Nissan Xterra timing chain?
you should never have to replace the chain. not impossible but rare that this has to ever be replaced. if it is a 2000 to 2003 model with a 3.3l v6 it has a timing belt which needs to be replaced every 105000 miles.

Answer its a timin belt ,should be replace at 60,000 its for your own good Yes, nissans were the first of the Japanese manufacturers to make every vehicle in their lineup wit…h a timing chain. Answer!! My dad says most likely a timimng belt. This is correct per the Nissan 2000 Xterra owner's manual, page10-9. The 4 cylinder engine has a timing chain. Nissan V6 engines have a belt, which should be replaced at around 105,000 miles. The 4 cylinders have a chain.
If its the 3.3L with supercharger, it has a timing belt.. Manual says to change at 105k. But did mine at 82k, had the money and time, so might as well. Did the water pump as …well since i was in the neighborhood.
Open the hood and look at the back of the headlight housing. Lift the wire clip up and back (toward the engine) to release the bulb assembly. Remove the wiring harness from …the base of the bulb and plug in the new one. DO NOT TOUCH THE BULB with your finger as it will cause it to burn out quickly.
The cost to replace a timing belt can vary from $60 to $200+. Thecost depends on shop prices if it will be done in a shop, the brandand price of the belt.
If it is a 2000 to 2003 model with a 3.3 V6 it is a belt. You should replace it around 105000 miles.
four cyl has chain 6 has belt
...The 2005 model is the 1st of the gen-2's and therefore has a chain in the v6, previous models; considered gen-1's and had a belt...
a dealer charges around $1400 to replace it along with the water pump, spark plugs, plug wires, distibutor cap and rotor button.
if it is the v6 it has a belt not chain that needs replacing every 105000 miles
Only if it needs it but if you wanna go right ahead! It won't hurt
Yes , it must have a timing CHAIN ( the Gates website does not list a timing belt for the 2004 Nissan Xterra 2.4 liter )
The 3.3 Liter V6 has a timing belt that must be changed every 105,000 miles. Warning: This is an interference engine. If the belt breaks you will have serious internal engin…e damage.
Replace the belt every 105,000 miles or every 10 years whichever comes first. Warning: This is an interference engine. .
