Look for some Youtube videos on this repair. If I remember correctly the links on this chain have different color metal for the spots that the cam tooth goes against. When each side is in the proper tooth the right and left colored links will be on the cam mark and the crank mark should be on the timing TDC mark. Sounds like the slack you describe is wrong and a tooth is off because the tensioner is allowing slack.. You need to slip a tooth one way or the other until the tensioner has room to be in a neutral position.
no way of doing so. need to remove cover. i have been doing this since 1996 and have never seen chain driven nissan jump timing. have seen some timing belt cars jump, but never chain driven engines. i think you have something else going on. i have done many and many timing chain jobs on frontiers and maximas, but not for a timing chain jumping issue. upper timing chain shoes wear out and engine gets noisy. i have to say i have seen some with the primary chain stretched a bit, but car still ran fine.
your intrepid doesnt have a timing belt it has a chain. there are major problems with these engines, theres a big one with the chain jumping due to a tensioner breaking or a guide,heres a diagram for the chain setup.this is a very important setup make sure you use correct sprokets in the right place and also if it jumped timing il bet you may have some bent valves,
I have a 03 pontiac sunfire that jump time. It also bent the intake valves on the head. I got the head repaired and got a new timing chain. According to the vehicle manuel repair book I am to align the intake balance shaft and the exhaust balance shaft with the crankshaft as well as the crankshaft to the cam intake and exhaust sprokets. This has all been done. I even did the tensioners on both cam and balance shafts according to the book. When I go to start it it jumps time. So I do it all again but this time I crank the crankshaft using a socket wrench and as it turns I see it starting to bind and then it gets loose on the right side where the intake valves are but I do not see where or what could be causing this. The chain just gets loose on one side ( Not tensioner side). I am confused please help.
