What can be the problem as to why my time chain lite is on?


Is there high mileage on the vehicle? Do you hear slapping noise or vibration at the timing chain cover. It may be that the chain has stretched. Get a trouble code scan at Auto Zone or Advance Auto and see what codes come up. The codes will give a better idea of what's going on with engine.

Once you have the codes, you can do a web search for them to get more information about the codes.

I need to know why my rpm and speed jumping around at same time


Go to Autozone, or any chain auto parts store. Have them read your engine trouble codes. It's called an OBD reader.
The trouble code is a 4 digit number that should tell you what component on your engine is faulty.

Crank sensor location


If the timing chain fails, the engine will not have compression.
A faulty crank sensor should set a trouble code in the computer.

Asking about timing chain


I'm going to assume you have the V6 engine. I would want to know what the trouble codes are in the computer to cause the check engine light to come on.
It could be a problem with the cam or crank sensor.

My aunt has a 97 nissan pick up she said the engine light is on and the belts are noisy. do u think that a nissan with 87000 on it would have a problem with the timing belt or just needs new plugs?


The check engine light is warning the driver the computer has found a problem that will affect engine performance or emissions. The light would not come on for a problem with the timing belt or accessory belts.
87,000 miles is around the time most companies recommend replacing the timing belt.
You would need to have the computer scanned for trouble codes to proceed with troubleshooting the problem or problems.

It's just not likely in an 11 year old car. Timing chains seldom get so worn and stretched that they could jump timing. How to know? Car will run very poorly, if at all. To be certain, pull the timing chain cover off and check the timing marks. Whatever problems you are having, have the engine computer scanned for trouble codes as the first step in diagnosis. Good luck.

Timing chain for toyota yaris


What is the issue you are having? Chains do strech but to to the point of failure there should be some major performance issues. If there is a lack of oil changes this could cause premature chain failure.

Low oil level will cause the tensioner to not work adequitly.

Also I have replaced the VVTi controller on the intke cam a few times for lack of performance, always has trouble codes to go along with poor performance tough.
