My first thought was the timing belt was not in time since you have to remove the belt to get to the pump. The crank sensor is near the flywheel so it should not have been touched. But timing should not affect the spark coming out of the coil. It could be a problem with the resistor for the coil or something with the computer. Did you also replace the cap and rotor when you changed the distributor ? Is the spark weak coming out of the coil ? You may have to get a used shop manual from Ebay to get the test procedures and wiring diagram for the ignition system.
older model altima need drive belt tension adjustment at 7500 miles intervals, the new models altimas has a automatic belt tensioner.i you hear noises belt tensioner could be failing.or could have leaking coolant getting on drive belt due to water pump gasket leaking or pump leaking.or alternator power steering pump could be failing many things will cause drive belt to make high squeak noises.
Very possible. The water pump will be run by the timing belt behind the engine cover and on the same side of the motor as all your external belts. Make sure there are no hoses close by that could be leaking and if not it will probly be the water pump. Usually they will make a noise when they are failing. Remeber if it is just a drip and it is hot outside if you run your air conditioning it will drip water from the condenser as well.
ok the nissan altima has the same engine as any nissan 240sx from 92+
its a ka24de engine 2.4liter dual over head cam so if they cant find anything under the altima tell em to check a nissan 240sx of the same year.
as far as the car dieing it could be a few things idle air control valve clogged pcv valve wich is stupid hard to replace i have a 95 altima your almost better off pulling out the entire engine. and other things sorry. I cant assist with your main problem but thought id drop some advice.
This can be caused by not tensioning the belt corectly.When fitting a new belt you should allways replace the tensioner,and make sure the water pump pulley is in good working order.Its always wise to get your timming belt from the dealer.as others are nown to be faulty.Fit new belt follow manuel when doing so.good luck
OK, now I understand. The belt goes around the alternator and water pump as well Just give the make and model to any auto parts store and ask for the alternator, power steering, water pump belt and they will know which one it is. If it helps, the Gates number is: K060525
Yes. i would perform the same test on a 1997 altima. those had the same problem with the intake manifold gasket leaking. the gasket will brake and you will have a leak.nissan didn't change the gasket. the same gasket is beeing used on 1997 and the 2001. do the carb cleaner test and let me know how it responds to some carb cleaner.
A timing belt will no blow up the engine, however it will on occasion bend the valves, you will need to replace the belt and test for damage to the engine. Change the water pump and check all the pulleys while you are in there.
