I believe that you have the VG30 engine, if this is true you have to remove all of the belts and to do that you must find all of the adjuster screws for the accessories that are attached to the appropiate belts and lossen the pivot bolts. once all other belts are removed you can begin replacing. my advice is to replace all the belts while you are there and save your self from the hassle of this again.
If the motor has not been turned over without the belt you should be able to put the new belt on where it is..
The recommended mileage to change a timing belt on a 1995 Nissan Pathfinder is 100,000 miles. The belt may need replaced before this.
The 2001 Nissan Pathfinder has a 3.5 liter engine with a timing chain rather than a belt. http://www.samarins.com/reviews/pathfinder.html
The alternator belt on a 1993 Nissan 300ZX will typically squeal if it has excessive wear or it has become lose. This provides a good opportunity to replace the belt before it complete fails.
hyow much play on the belt do you have. and also if there is any cracking of the belt replace now.
remove your fan shroud then losen the tensioner and remove your belt.
The 4.0 litre V6 engine in a 2006 Nissan Pathfinder has a timing CHAIN
Behind the timing belt cover.
The 1993-1998 Nissan Quest has a timing belt.
A good 4 hours
The Nissan maintenance manual states that the timing belt should be replaced at 103,000 miles.
your serpin belt needs replaced
Every 60,000 miles.
The 2004 pathfinder has a chain not a belt 3.5 litre engine only the 3.3 has a belt and that engine was in the 2000 year model the 3.3 is not in the 2004 model
From my own research on the internet I believe that all Nissan 1993 - 1998 have a Cam Chain (Timing Belt)
Replace every 105,000 miles (168,000 km). It is in the owner's manual. If you don't have the owner's manual you can find it for free on the internet. Just do a search for it.
That's a big job to do. The water pump is behind the timing belt. So to replace the water pump, you would have to remove the timing belt and just about everything else in front of that. I would suggest bringing it in to a shop to have it done.
yes.....it is an interferance engine. The belt keeps moving parts in sync; when it breaks at speed, those parts can hit each other with great force.
