SOURCE: 1997 nissan pathfinder timing off.

The cam sprockets should have marks on them (dimples) that should align with marks on the rear timing cover. There should also be a similar dimple on the crankshaft timing sprocket. These will align with their respective marks when the engine is at TDC. The alignment marks are in the following locations as you look at the front of the engine: RH cam sprocket at approximately 11:00, LH cam sprocket at approx 1:00, Crankshaft timing sprocket at approx 4:00 or 5:00. IF you can't find the marks on the cover, put the marks on the sprockets in those approximate positions and set the belt by using a belt tooth count between the marks. Cam to cam should be 40 teeth between the cam marks. Between the LH sprocket and the crank mark should be 43 teeth. You can check TDC by removing your number 1 cylinder spark plug and carefully inserting a long screwdriver and watching the rise/fall as you hand crank the crankshaft into position (which is much easier with the plugs out)

SOURCE: water pump

You should not have to do all that. Let me know if you dont get diagral(sometimes happens)

  1. Drain the cooling system.
CAUTION When draining the coolant, keep in mind that cats and dogs are attracted by ethylene glycol antifreeze, and are quite likely to drink any that is left in an uncovered container or in puddles on the ground. This will prove fatal in sufficient quantity. Always drain the coolant into a sealable container. Coolant should be reused unless it is contaminated or several years old. 0900c1528018cf80.jpgFig. 1: Water pump assembly-Z24i and KA24E engines 0900c1528018cf81.jpgFig. 2: View of the water pump assembly-VG30E engine
  1. Remove all drive belts.
  2. Unfasten the fan shroud securing bolts and remove the fan shroud assembly.
  3. Unfasten the water pump retaining bolts (note the different size bolts on the VG30i and VG30E engines), then remove the water pump and fan assembly, using care not to damage the radiator with the fan.
If the fan is equipped with a fluid coupling, do not tip the fan/pump assembly on its side, as the fluid will run out.
To install:
  1. Remove all traces of gasket and/or sealant from the pump-to-cover mounting surfaces. Install the water pump and tighten the M6-size mounting bolts to 3-7 ft. lbs. (4-10 Nm). Tighten the M8-size bolts to 7-12 ft. lbs. (10-16 Nm) on Z24i engines, or 12-15 ft. lbs. (16-21 Nm) on KA24E, VG30i and VG30E engines. Always use a new gasket between the pump body and its mounting.
The KA24E engine uses a liquid gasket. Carefully scrape any old gasket material from the mounting surfaces, then apply a 0.079-0.118 in. (2-3mm) continuous bead of liquid gasket around the entire mounting surface.
  1. Install the fan shroud assembly.
  2. Install the drive belt and adjust the tension.
  3. Refill and bleed the cooling system (refer to ), then start the engine and check for coolant leaks.

1996 Nissan Pathfinder v6 5 speed back up light switch position

The switch that controls the backup lamps on a 1996 Nissan Pathfinder looks completely different and is in a slightly different location depending on whether the vehicle is equipped with a manual or automatic transmission. However, in ether case, the switch is located on the transmission.

On the manual transmission it is called simply, "backup switch".
On the automatic transmission it is part of the "inhibitor switch". (also known as "neutral safety switch")
