The timing chain on the H6 does not need to be replaced. We ran into a vapor lock (can you believe it!) situation a couple of weeks ago and I did some reading. In the maintenance booklet for our 3.0H6 states that the camshaft drive belt (timing belt) on the 2.5 ltr 4 cyl. needs to be inspected and replaced. On the 3.0ltr engine there is a footnote that states "Periodic inspection and replacement of the camshaft drive chains on the 3.0 Liter models are not required."
Hope that helps.

Hi, the belt that is self tensioning is refering to the serpentine belt that runs the alternater, power steering pump, waterpump, etc.... this should be replaced every 60k or 4yrs. take a flash light and take a look for cracks on the ribbed side of the belt.( if need to be replaced comment back and i can assist. its real easy.) the timming belt is alot harder and i reccomend to only change if there is a problem with it.

The tire situation-- this occurs when the tires are out of alignment and are riding mostly on the outside of tire. take it to a tire shop. get a all wheel alignment and have them tell you how much the are off to confirm problem. hope this info helps.---lebones

I have 140K on by 2002 S60 what service should I complete. Did big service at 75K, timing belt never changed. What do you recommend?


You should have changed the Timing Belt at 60K niles, by not changing the Timing Belt you are taking a serious gamble on the Belt breaking on you at anytime, leaving you stranded and costing you thousands of dollars in engine repairs. If your car runs fine, No Check Engine Lights, I would just do your regular engine oil changes, flush Radiator, Change Transmission Fluid and Filter, but change the Timing Belt ASAP.

I have 151,000 miles on my 2002 4cyl Camry and have not changed the timeing or the sepeitine belt: Is it time to have it done?


Hi:
It is overdue time to change your timing belt and waterpump, as you are on borrowed time on the timing belt. The waterpump and tensioner should be changed along with the timing belt, as they can ruin a new timing belt if they fail. Your serpentine belt should be inspected and replaced if needed too.

good day,first of all you may ask the owner if he has the service manual so you can change the last timing belt changed. secondly you may try to check the belt itself if it has some tiny cracks or a little loose or a little worn. hope this helps, have a nice day

Freelander w reg. 1.8 petrol, 64,000 miles on clock. when do I need to change the timing belt


If you are asking about the actual TIMING BELT and not the serpentine belt, I would check with a dealership or a local garage. The Freelander has three (3), yes--3 timing belts:

front timing belt

left side rear timing belt

right side rear timing belt

Hope this helps!

Hi, do I need to change the timing belt on c 240, year 2002


Do not change the timing chain until its loosened / stretched to the limit. You should check & replace the engine oil and gear oil(if separate). Also get the air filter & engine oil filter replaced. See if the tyres are worn out otherwise exchange the tyres diagonally. A good servicing including greasing should be enough...................sodeep

I have Nissan sentra GX 2002 90000Miles ,change timing belt?


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.

2002 Nissan Frontier timing belt


Timing belts are found on the 3.3L engines, timing chains are on the 2.4L engines. The 2002 3.3L Timing belt is changed at 105K during the major service. This service can run over one thousand dollars. It is recommended to replace the belt, tensioner and idlers, cam and crank seals, water pump, and both belts when changing the timing belt. That way, you only open up the front of the engine every 105K. Why change the timing belt and have a water pump start leaking only 20K later and ruin the belt with antifreeze? Other items during the 105K are a major tune up with all the fluids changed and a lube. This does get expensive. You can break it up into several blocks of time and spread the related service items out over a few months to take some of the sting off.
