Timing Belt & Sprockets Removal & Installation 3.2L Engine To Remove:
TDC compression stroke timing marks gm_car_cad_cts_04_tmg_mrks_tdc_comp.gif

  1. Before servicing the vehicle, refer to the precautions at the beginning of this section.
  2. Remove or disconnect the following:
    • Timing belt cover
    • Crankshaft damper
  3. Rotate the crankshaft in the engine rotation direction, clockwise using the J 42098 or other suitable tool until the # 1 cylinder is at Top Dead Center (TDC) on the compression stroke. The reference marks on the camshaft gears should be aligned with the corresponding notches on the rear timing belt cover, as well as the mark on the crankshaft sprocket and oil pump housing. Timing marks 60 degrees from TDC gm_car_cad_cts_04_tmg_mrks_60_frm_tdc_comp.gif

  4. Rotate the crankshaft counter clockwise using the J 42098 or other suitable tool until 60 degrees Before Top Dead Center (BTDC). The 60 degrees BTDC point can be identified by the index mark on the oil pump cover. Using the J 42069-10 or other suitable tool gm_car_cad_cts_04_j42069-10.gif

  5. Install the J 42069-10 or other suitable tool to the crankshaft sprocket with the knurled bolt.
  6. Rotate the crankshaft in the engine rotational direction, clockwise using the J 42098 until the lever of the J 42069-10 or other suitable tool firmly contacts the water pump pulley flange. The # 1 cylinder is at TDC at this point.
  7. Secure the moveable lever of the tool to the water pump pulley flange. Tools in cam gears gm_car_cad_cts_04_tools_in_cam_grs.gif

  8. Install the J 42069-1 and the J 42069-2 or other suitable tools to the camshaft gears. If the J 42069-1 or the J 42069-2 or other suitable tools do not fit into the teeth of the camshaft gears, it may be necessary to loosen the upper idler pulley and turn the eccentric or camshaft gears until the tool can be inserted.
  9. Loosen the timing belt tensioner nut.
  10. Loosen the upper idler pulley bolt.
  11. Remove or disconnect the following:
    • Lower idler pulley bolt
    • Lower idler pulley and spacer
    • J 42069-10 or other suitable tool from the crankshaft sprocket WARNING
      After timing belt is removed, never turn camshaft and crankshaft independently. Do not remove J 42069-1 and the J 42069-2 or other suitable tools while the belt is removed.

2003 nissan xterra v-6 does it have a timing chain or belt and if it has a belt when does it need to be changed?


It has a timing belt, not a chain. Easy enough to check your owners manual. From memory, belt is to be replaced at about 100,000 miles or 160,000 km give or take.

Nissan xterra 2003 car noisy problem


If it's the water pump there should be water leaking, if it's the steering pump the noise  would change as you turn the steering wheel left to right. If it's constant, it could be just old belt and bad idler and tension pully. Start buy praying a little water to the belt while the engine is running and if the noise goes away, the belt is in time to be chaged. If the noise is still there, then most likly it's the ilder bering or tension bearing. Good luck

Timing belt?


Hi there.What he is probably meaning is you have an interference motor to which means if the belt breaks it will bend the valves or if changing it and not getting timed right will also bend the valves. So if your doing it your self use extreme caution and make sure befor removal of the belt that the timing marks are aligned and the gears do not move until the belt is back on.Rotate motor over slow by hand with belt exposed 2 full revolutions to see if your timing marks a in fact dead on.. The mileage on the truck are close to time to replace.You dont want that thing breaking the belt while its running.You know the facts now.I hoped this helpes you and have a great day...

Removing a timing belt on a 2003 xterra


If you have a 3.3L engine, this is know as an interference engine. That means if the engine is running when the timing belt breaks or strips its teeth, the lower part of the engine brings the pistons up and they hit the top end of the engine bringing the valves down. The two sections then interfere with each other and your wallet at the same time. The valves bend when they smack the pistons and the engine will need a head job as a result. A mechanic can confirm the damage with a test called a cylinder leakdown test. It sounds like you will have more than a timining belt needed at this point.

Spark Plugs


It is very difficult to change it is all done by feel as you cannot see it. You need to pull the wire off and "remember" the path it took to come out as this is the way you will have to remove and install the plug and put back the wire. Also, be very mindfull while installing the plug because it can be stripped out fairly easy if your not carefull. Good luck.
