you have to put the car into timing mode:
-unplug the TPS
-Rev up to 3k about three or four times
-Put a timing light on the crank pulley and check your marks (every car is different with there timing marks)
-To advance to retard timing you have to loosing the bolts on the distributor and move the distributor shaft to the proper setting to adjust timing (Car has to be running and it may run rough because the TPS is unplugged this is normal)
-Then recheck timing with timing light/gun and tighten the distributor shaft.
Remember - If you advance your timing to run higher octane fuel to aviod detonation.
I am in the process of rebuilding a 1993 Nissan altima. The 93 - 97 having timing chains. It has an upper and a lower timing chain. Hope this helps
where is the catalytic converter located bank 2 for 97 Nissan altima
Where is the fuel pressure regulator 97 altima
Two drive belts on the 93-97 altima 2.4.
below the steering wheel.
Nissan recommends 5W/30 Engine-oil for Nissan Altima (same as for Maxima) for 95, 96, 97, ... later years.
Most likely a rattle from that area in the engine bay when cold that subsides somewhat when engine gets warm.
You can find a 97 Nissan Altima alternator schematic diagram in the vehicle's owner's manual. You can also check local auto part stores.
yes 93-97 as long as there is not a difference in abs or limited slip diff
You can find a diagram of the fuse box for a 97 Nissan Altima 5 speed in the owner's manual. You can also find it at various auto stores.

gen 1 93-97
how do i adjust my distributor for timing
It has a chain.
check the starter
depends on the year, mine does and its a '97 sentra
Remove starter and bring to auto parts store for testing
Rough idle, loss of power, poor mileage.
trying to set base timing on a 97 Chevy c1500 with a 5.7 engine the wire to disconnect to set base timing is ?
Altimas are 4 door sedans. They always have 4 doors.you could also get an altima coupe - which is 2 doors (just saying)
The timing marks on a '97 Dodge Stratus are located on the timing chain and the camshaft sprocket. They must be aligned to set the initial timing.
That requires an OBD2 engine scanner to set the timing. The timing is electronic controlled. You can NOT use a timing light it won't work.
there is no easy way. have fun. be well organized.
