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.

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.

if your 1987 Nissan pickup leak water from manifold what do we do

It's probably your Alternator that is going bad. That is if the battery and brake lights came on at the same time.

why is my 2006 Altima blowing cold air when not in motion , example stop light or as soon as it is idling even when it has ran for a long time and the engine is warm. The controls for the "doors"(vent covers that direct the air)are run by vacuum. There cold be a vacuum leak of one of the doors is stuck.

Most likely a fuel leak or sticking injector. Try injector cleaner first to see if it helps. It probably won't but it's worth a try.

Find a different mechanic, correct plugs? Speedometer disconected at tranmission? Drain plug, filter not tight, gasket at oil pump?

Look for gasoline leak at fuel injectors. You can usually smell it. If no leak change air filter. A plugged air filter can cause too rich mixture and too much gas usage. Also inspect gasline from tank to gas filter and around filter.

Some common causes of an oil leak on a Nissan are the gaskets and seals. Both break down over time and must be replaced.

Replace the entire windwo rubber or put soom Gook in the leak. You have to find the leak.

Any time an engine overheats you need to make sure that it didn't cause serious damage. Run a compression test to see if the head or block has been damaged. Idling high may be a vacuum leak. If there is a vacuum leak and it becomes severe enough, the engine will not be able to start.

Sounds like a vacuum leak. Check all vacuum hoses. But before you do that change the air filter.
