Either one will do.....the dealer's price will probably be the highest.........but if you want peace of mind. You coudl also search around for a garage that does foreign vehilces and ask them for a qoute. I did mine myself but if you really don't have the interest or skills or tools then you are sort of stuck. Almost like doctors......general practicioner=100 an hour...specialist=500 an hour doing it yourself= PRICELESS? mmmmmmmmmmmmmm maybe not.
The manufacturer recommends that you change your 2000 Nissan Frontier four-cylinder engine timing belt every 60,000 miles. The 2000 Nissan Frontier does not have a timing chain, it has a timing belt.
On a 2000 Mercury Villager : The recommended timing belt replacement interval is ( 105,000 miles ) The Gates website ( they make timing belts etcetera ) shows it as an INTERFERENCE ENGINE , so if the timing belt breaks engine damage will occur
1999-2002 Villager or Nissan Quest.
every 105000 miles
Probably $450 and up, depending where you live and where you take it.
No. It is not an interference motor, and it should not be harmed by the belt breaking.
The 2000 Mercury Villager uses a timing belt and has a non-interference engine. Which means that if the timing belt were to break that no engine damage would occur from the valves and pistons hitting each other.
it has a timing belt
It must be a timing CHAIN because the Gates website does not list a timing belt for the 3.0 liter V6 in a 2000 Nissan Maxima
Your vehicle has a timing chain.
Your 2000 Nissan Maxima 3.0 liter V6 has a timing CHAIN(s)
A mechanic old me about 100,000K
A 2000 Nissan Sentra GXE with the 1.8L engine has a timing chain, not a belt. There is no specific recommendation as to when to replace the timing chain. In most cases, chain-driven vehicles can go for well over 150,000 miles before the timing components are in need of replacement.
There is no need to remove the timing belt to change the thermostat.
The 2.4 liter four cylinder engine in a 2000 Nissan Frontier has a timing CHAIN
It should be the same.
no. it has a chain not belt. it should last as long as the car.
Given the extensive amount of disassembly required, this could cost anywhere from $450 and up.
It has a timing chain which if different--it does not need replacing at 100K like a belt!
Nissan's 2.4 has a timing chain upper and lower.
when it breaks More info here: http://www.nissanforums.com/l30-1998-2001-altima/125696-timing-belt-chain.html
If it is a 2000 to 2003 model with a 3.3 V6 it is a belt. You should replace it around 105000 miles.
