Re: 95 nissan 4 cyl pick up timing belt life
Actually the time life is every 60k miles, what i will recomend you to do is have it inspect it by a honest mechanic, there is a way to inspect, but if you don;t have a mechanic than you can trust,
ask them to show you any problems while they have the belt covers out.

Generally speaking, once a car gets past 100k you replace something when it fails. The overall life expectancy of a car such as yours would be 150,000 miles. Of course they can run for 3 or 4 hundred thousand miles under the best conditions. For example, your car uses a timing chain instead of a belt. Timing chains are expected to last the life of the engine, and usually don't fail until after 200k. Same thing for the water pump, fuel pump, oil pump, and so on. If you changed the trans fluid and filter at or before 100k, it should be done again. You would change the belts and hoses, fuel filter and ignition parts at every 50k or so. Therefore you would have changed them at least 3 or 4 times by now. The problem with your transmission is not normal, but not uncommon with that many miles on the clock. I would not rev it up in drive beyond 1500 RPM in case it suddenly engages.
did you jump the timing belt cogs on the belt ? if it jump'd that would cause it to not start or them pesky control modules under the rotor sometimes even the pickup coil / did the power wire fall off the distributor terminal ? there should be plastic shrouds you can take off to peek at the timing belts (5.7 ohv) see if it's shredding apart and time for new 1 / if it did i hope the valves didnt hit the pistons / they bend it's bad . average life of a timing belt is 80,000k or so many years .
