Question about 2002 Nissan Frontier Crew Cab

I'm about to purchase a 2002 Nissan Frontier with 88,000 miles on it from a dealership.  I'd like to know when the timing belt should be replaced, as I might have them do it as "part of the deal".

DONT BUY IT. There is more than the timing belt that is wrong with it. Some dealers do that **** just to make a quick buck. I dont like it. Sorry to inform you, but if they dont know how to change a timing belt, or know when it needs to be changed, they dont need to be in business. Sorry to be so blunt but I try to be as honest as I can.

P0328 Is knock sensor code,all Nissan have this code so leave,concentrate on P0101 and P0103 this is MAF(mass airflow),Just make sure the timing belt is in good condition and the marks are correct, your solution is NTB02-003A In other word you need a reprogram on the ECM

I have a 2006 nissan frontier v6 my gas gage goes to empty when i fill it up after i drive it about 70 to 80 miles then restart it the gage starts to work again but my service eng light comes on what...


The check engine light will not go away until the problem is fixed. Good thing is Nissan just issued a recall for this part so go to a dealership and get it replaced at no cost to you. I know your problem because I have replaced mine three times on my 2006 Frontier.

At what milage should a timing belt be changed on a 2002 Nissian frontier crew cab?


60-80,000 miles is a great benchmark for ANY vehicle. nissan recomends 105,000 miles which seems a little excessive to me. be careful because this engine is listed as an interference motor and WILL cause internal engine damage if it was to break.

What is the recommended schedule for replacing the timing belt


Find out if you have a rubber belt or a chain belt. Rubber every 50.000 miles, chain 100.000 miles.

My 02 frontier sc turns over but wont start high pictched sound when ignition is turnin over, timing belt? was driving and it shut off on its own


how many miles? it could be the timing belt. some engines will destroy valves, etc. when the T-belt breaks. that is why the mfg. insists you change it between 60-90k miles. i'm not sure if nissan is one of those that causes major problems to the engine when the belt goes? better safe than sorry, change @ the recommended interval. good day.

When do i need to change the timing belt or chain in my 1999 merc


Usually around 90,000 miles is a good time to change this component. I see you are approaching this mark with 88,000 and counting so, i would prepare for this replacement soon.

2002 Nissan Frontier timing belt


Timing belts are found on the 3.3L engines, timing chains are on the 2.4L engines. The 2002 3.3L Timing belt is changed at 105K during the major service. This service can run over one thousand dollars. It is recommended to replace the belt, tensioner and idlers, cam and crank seals, water pump, and both belts when changing the timing belt. That way, you only open up the front of the engine every 105K. Why change the timing belt and have a water pump start leaking only 20K later and ruin the belt with antifreeze? Other items during the 105K are a major tune up with all the fluids changed and a lube. This does get expensive. You can break it up into several blocks of time and spread the related service items out over a few months to take some of the sting off.
