Question about 2002 Nissan Maxima
I have a 2002 nissan maxima with on 58000 miles on it i was told my timing chain was about to go but i think it is the sprockets cause i was told the chain on them dont really break i was also told that i might be better off butting a new engine in cause i could have bent a vavle and if i can just change the sprockets or the chain is this some thing i could possiable do my self as an amtuer or should i just take it to a pro ? i have done a little work on cars but nothing like taking my motor appart
Ok, first off you need to take your vehicle to a Nissan dealer for a second opinion. Its not at all common to need a T-chain @ 58,000 miles unless you dont take care of your car and or you beating the snot out of it like it was stolen. What is the symptom? What caused it? When did it start? Second, this is not something an amature could/should do as it is very involved and there are alot of things you could potentially mess up. Third a new engine(long block), parts alone would run approx. 6-8 thousand dollars. A used engine could be an option and could run approx.1500-2500 dollars depending on mileage. Hope this helps and good luck.
