Does the 1995 Nissan ultima have a timing chain or a timing belt?
4 cylinder has a timing chain ,6 cylinder has timing belt.
The Nissan Maximas produced from 1995 on (VQ30DE engine) are equipped with a timing chain system, rather than a timing belt. The recommended replacement interval for 1994 and prior timing belt equipped Maximas is 60,000 miles. But for 1995 and newer Maximas with a timing chain, the recommended replacement interval is not as well-defined. Timing chains generally have a greater durability and longevity compared to timing belts, and some vehicles (not limited to Nissan) have…
Does 1995 Nissan Maxima have timing belt And when should it be changed It is not having any problems but shop said that since car has over 160000 miles it should be replaced?
I am assuming you already have the timing chain off the vehicle, and you are looking for the timing marks. if not, please note, there is no manual adjustment on the timing chain. I have included a picture of the correct timing placement on my website http://thecommi.angelfire.com/index.html under Timing Chain. I hope this helps you.
remove the battery cable, take the number one plug out and make sure it is on top dead center and check your timing marks to make sure that you are not 180 degrees out, then remove the timing chain or belt cover and and look to make sure the timing marks are where they are suspose to be, if not replace the gears chain/belt with new parts but be careful not to move the cam…
it is located insdie the timing chain cover assembly. you'll have to remove the pulley belts, the crank pulley, and a few bolts to get the timing chain cover off. then the pulley is located (facing the timing assembly) at the lower mid right side of the whole timing assembly. it is spinned by the timing chain. need more info, sign up for a membership in www.maxima.org ask questions, you'll get some answer. peter email@example.com
you need to pull the valve cover and oil pan and front cover and then you can replace the upper timing chain on the altima but if you are going to do this job i would recommend you replace the gear that hooks the lower and upper chain together this is called the idler gear and it is the one that causes the noise all the time.
