How often should one change a fuel filter on a 1997 Nissan Sentra SE?
every 20-25000 miles
It depends on how you take care if it. How often you change the oil and filter. What type of oil and filter you use. when you change the air filter gas filter and how you drive. If you drive in the city or open road. Light foot or heavy foot. So as you can see, it depends on you. Do everything right and you should get 300,000 miles out of it, or more.
You use 5w-30 for the SER spec-v and you should use FULL SYNTHETIC. I perfer valvoline cause they garentee your car will run to 300,000 miles with it. Today i changed my oil with a special from autozone. I got 5 gallon jug and a filter for 26 dollars. But remember only put in 4.5 liters with a new filter.
Your fuel filter should be located next to your engine in the engine bay. To the passinger side of the engine. It should have one plastic clamp on each end of the filter. Squeeze the clamps on both sides with a pair of pliers and pull the fuel line away from the filter. Then remove the clamp holding the filter to the wheel well. Do everything in reverse to install your new filter.
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.
