it is likely the EGR Valve. If you are going to replace it, make sure that it is the exact valve for your car. Take the Vehicile ID number with you to get the exact Valve.Although they may look exactly the same, your car might not run with another EGR. they are caliberated to the engine and it has to be exact.

See if the intake has blown a gasket it could be leaking water into theoil. If its getting hot then you probly have a blown head gasket. Julie

If your belt came with marks, then they should match the marks that are on the sprockets and block, if not, you must have the cam marks align with those on the engine. If you're in doubt about the exact spot, lay a tooth pick across the sprockets so that you can check alignment to the block.

How much to repair timing chain?


The internal damage is always the main worry with a broken timing chain, bent or broken valves, damaged valve stems and seats, I have even seen broken rings and split pistons and snapped camshafts, if the chain has stretched and the timing has jumped a couple of teeth you may be lucky, but you shouldnt turn the engine over even by hand until you find out the root of the problem, any damage may be increased tenfold. Unfortunately the timing cover will have to be released to find out before you do anything.

1988-1993 ford festiva leaking oil around the crank pulley... could the oil be coming out of timing chain seal... are could it be a the seal on the crank shaft.. if so would i need to removle the engine to...


This sounds like the crank seal, the engine doesnt have to be removed, in order to get to seal is like replacing the ttiming belt, and once in the timing belt i would replace the crank and cam seals, also do the timing belt, and maybe the waterpump, you will need to remove the crank pulley and then the timing covers then align timing marks for timing belt before ou remove it, with timing belt off the crank pulley then slides off the crankshaft and the seal is behind it, the cam shaft gear unbolts and the seal is behind the gear, once the gears are off then you will be able to remove the seals from the engine,heres a few diagrams to help. good luck and i hope this is helpful,60d826b.gifca916fa.gifcb2cb5a.gif

It wont turn over


sounds like timing belt to me, check for compression if you have no compression then you will know that the timing belt has broken. pull one of your plugs and have someone turn the ignition over and see if you can feel the air shooting out. I hope this helps you.

Nissan Altima 2003 and up have timing chains and if you have looked for them you're not going to find it unless you take the valve cover off and you will see it on the left side but be thankful for one thing that Nissan guarantees that the timing chain will last the life of the engine which is about 250,000 miles. but as anything mech. it can go out anytime new or old have this checked out soon along with the oil pressure let me know what engine you have and the millage email me and ill do some research for you Lee

I have a 2002 6cil nissan pathfinder, it was running, find, then stalled and now will crank but will not start, please help. Add info no check engine or other warning has happened


it could be the timing belt.
If it is the timing belt, it may sound a little different when cranking it. It may turn over faster, sounding free, or it may sound two toned when cranking (normal, then fast, normal then fast with every revalution)
Hope this helps

While driving at about 15 mph. Car died, Engine wont start.


You probably need a timing chain replaced as it is stretched. GM doesn't use timing belts on their cars as a rule while Ford and Chrysler will. If the timing chain breaks, the valves will not move with the engine and you will have no compression and the engine will not start.
