How often do I change timing chain on 93 Nissan sentra?
On the 1.6 litre Sentra engines you should not have to change a timing chain until well over 250,000 miles if ever. This engine has an automatic chain tensioner that keeps the chain tight so that it will not jump teeth when stretched due to wear. I have heard of early 90s engines developing gear tooth cupping that prevents the engine from retaining proper ignition timing. This causes the engine to run a little rough. I have never SEEN this though.
For longer life with less maintenance, the Sentra engine uses a timing chain instead of a cheaper, but quieter, timing belt. You don't notice the extra noise generated by the timing chain.

Does the 2003 Nissan Sentra SE-R Spec-V use a timing belt or chain and around how much does it cost to replace?
I was told that timing belts should be replaced every 60,000 miles. However, when I called the local Nissan dealer for my 2003 Sentra, they told me it does not ever need to be replaced. Then I read somewhere that apparently Nissan guarantees the timing belt/chain to last the life time of the engine. I also read that 2003 Sentra has a timing chain, not a belt.
You don't. 89 sentra does not have a timing belt, instead it has timing chain. I have the 1989 Nissan Sentra 1.6L 4-dr sedan. My timing chain needs to be replaced. It runs inside the motor. It is a big task for an auto mechanic to replace it. It will cost me at a *trustworthy* business $470 for part(s) and labor to replace it. Expect it to take a whole day for the car to…
Does 1996 Nissan Sentra GXE use a timing belt or a timing chain How long can it normally last in miles?
You don't have a timing belt, you have a timing chain..(that's for the other foreign automaker...that charge way to much at the lot..but are way too cheap to give you what you pay for.) you timing chain is located under you valve cover gasket, you would have to remove it in order to get at the chain.
Yes the 2008 Nissan Sentra cam is driven by a chain and not a belt. This is a brand new car. Did it not come with an owner's manual? If you will open that manual and read, it will answer almost any question you may have. It you do not see replacement of the belt as a scheduled maintenance item at around 100,000 miles then it does not have a belt and has a chain…
