Question about 2004 Nissan Sentra
My sentra 1.6L SG (A) have problem that when at idle, the timing has gone up to more than 1000rpm. Already went to Nissan Service Center and the technician told me that it is due to TPS and if need to fix it, I have to change the throttle body system which cost me $2200. Could I just replace the TPS alone or it somehow have to change for the whole system?
It appears the car may not be entering tuneup mode. warm up until temp is normal, idle stays below 1000 rpm
2000 rpm for 2 minutes
rev engine 2-3K three times
idle for one minute
rev 2-3K three times

I own this car, and I can say confidently that it has a timing chain instead of a belt. I believe you do not need to change the chain at any point...... it is more a matter of maintenance and repair to worn guides and tensioners.

i had a similar problem a few months ago with my se-r. i went to the dealership and had them reprogram the ecm and it fixed it(its on the recall list for your car.) once i did that everything ran great.

The Quest has a non interference engine meaning that should the belt break the engine would just die without breaking anything. Nissan recommends 105K for changing but that depends on the way the vehicle was driven (driving habits), road conditions etc. If driving on roads for e.g. that are hilly, it labors the engine more thus shortens the lifespan of the belt according to mfg.
