No need to pull the timing chain. Remove drive belt and then remove the crankshaft pulley. use a screwdriver with a piece of cloth wrapped around the tip so you don't damage the seal bore. place the new seal square with the bore and use block of wood or a socket smaller diameter than the seal and a rubber mallet to insert the seal flush with the crankshaft bore. put back on the pulley and tighten according to torque specs in your shop manual then reinstall the drive belt and run engine to check for leaks.

What causes a 97 Nissan altima to cut off when you come to a stop light?

If a 1997 Nissan Altima cuts off at a stop light, there is a problem with the fuel getting to the engine. When you are accelerating, there is pressure and a higher flow of fuel, which is why it won't cut off then. The problem could be a leak in the fuel line, the fuel pump itself, or a fuel filter. It will need to be serviced.
