My 1994 Altima has a timing chain on it and these are supposed to last the life of the engine. I would say unless you can really hear the problem then to leave it alone.

Hello and thank you for using FixYa!
The service engine soon light comes on when a fault is detected in the emission system. The service engine soon light is the same thing as a check engine light. A scan tool will be needed to get the code for the failure, so the proper repairs can be made.

Ignore me if I am wrong, but I believe the timing is ECU defined and non-adjustable. To confirm, it has a crank position sensor.

Turn off the engine and connect a tachometer to the distributor per the manufacturer's instructions. Connect the timing light to the battery and then to the number one ignition wire. Start the engine and verify it's idling at 1,000 RPM. Adjust the idle speed if necessary
Point the timing light at the crankshaft pulley to determine the amount of adjustment needed. Adjust the timing by loosening the distributor mounting bolts and turning the distributor until the crankshaft timing mark lines up with the middle line of the timing light.
