If the alternator belt needs to be replaced in a 1999 Nissan should other belts be checked?

Your probably going to have only one serpentine belt, and that will take care of it. If there is a chance that you do have more than one belt, then the rule of thumb is to replace them all at the same time.

You should have your rotors checked and possibly turned or replaced as necessary You should have your rotors checked and possibly turned or replaced as necessary

The computer only resets when the battery is removed. The alternator just charges the battery, so if the battery is left connected when the alternator is replaced, the computer should not reset.

It should cost between 500-700 based on the brand of the alternator and the shop.

A re-manufactured alternator should cost between $130 and $150 not including labor.

Battery light usually means alternator not charging. Most common solutions would be be a bad alternator, bad connection, or loose alternator belt. If the battery and alt test ok than check the connections to the alternator and battery. The alternator should have 2 connections.

Break pads should be checked if not replaced. Check condition of rotors at the same time.

Normally it will last the life of the engine and is replaced when the engine is overhauled.

nissan micra has timing chain or cam chain and should be replaced at 200.000k

The 'oxygen sensor'may need to be replaced on '96 Sentra when the check engine light comes on. The should be replaced on the '96 Sentra every 100k miles for better fuel efficiency and to protect the converter.

If a washer pump was replaced on a Jeep Wrangler and is still not working the fuses should be checked. The washer switch should also be checked as it could also be causing the pump not to work.

If the light remains on then the system still isn't charging as it should. Check the plug on the alternator and also that the wires to the alt have a good connection.

Even though you have already replaced the thermostat, there are other issues that can cause your Nissan Maxima to overheat. Your fan may be stuck and not operating as it should.

Check the voltage at the battery with engine running. It should read 13.5 to 15.5 volts. Any less and the alternator is suspect.

have the alternator checked. AnswerYou can check the alternator yourself with a multi-meter/ voltmeter. Start your car and rev to about 1500 rpm, touch the meter positive lead to the b-lead on the alternator, and the meter negative lead to the alternator case, or any good ground. You should read 13 to 14 volts, anything less than about 12.5v, and you've probably got a bad set of diodes and need a new alternator.

Try jumping it off. If it cranks remove the + side on the battery. If it shuts off the alternator is bad .If it does not shut off clean the battery terminals . Have the battery checked at the Auto Zone.

If it has a serpentine belt - should be automatic through the belt tensioner

If the alternator is bolted on too tight on its bracket,then it will cause the alternator to have a "bend" so that the clearance between the moving parts is reduced and the moving parts eventually jammed.

I have your answer for you. I talked to Nissan about this before. First of all, the 2001 Nissan Pathfinder doesnt have a timing belt. It has a timing chain. And Nissan doesnt set a life to these components. It is pretty much ment to last a long time and when it does go. then you need to replace it. Sounds odd but that is what the mechanic at Nissan told me. when it goes it will warp the valves and possible the pistons will hit the head and just destroy the engine. what to listen for when u need the timing chain replaced is metel slapping something or should i say like it isn't oiling properly. i would have it checked out every 60,000 miles.

The thermostat on the Nissan Altima should be directly behind the alternator. This will be on the passenger side of the car and directly under a large heater hose.

With engine running at idle you should read 13.5 to 15.5 volts at the battery.

It should have a spring loaded automatic tensioner, if the spring is broke replace the tensioner arm assembly

You replace them when they stop working. They stop when they stop.

I just paid 600$ after taxes to get mine replaced.

it should be checked out by a qualified person only.
