Re: I have Nissan sentra GX 2002 90000Miles ,change...
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.

timing BELT ! IF YOU NOTICE A LOSS OF POWER ON PARKWAY, you will need to replace the belt, or it will get worst, can't keep up with other cars and it will damage the engine. making it work harder. just replaced one on 2002 nissan sentra, my daughters car. very complicated, left dealer do it, $900 .
Assuming that is a motor out of a 1999 Nissan Sentra this link should be a link to a Timing Belt Diagram. There is insufficient space to explain everything involved in removing the old one and all the parts that have to be pulled, if you need those directions I highly recommend you get the Haynes Repair Manual on a 1999 Nissan Sentra for those instructions.
Timing belt not likely cause. If your timing belt is off, the car will not run at all. Need to know engine type to determine how many belts you have.

The timing chain doesn't really have a maintenance period. They don't have a habit of breaking or stretching. Timing belts on some vehicles do have a recomended replacement period. Locate your local NTB, Firestone, or Sears for the maintenance schedule.
Click on the following free direct Link. It has several Diagrams including the correct Serpentine/Drive Belt Diagram for your 1996 Nissan Sentra 1.6L DOHC In-Line 4-Cylinder. Included are Instructional and Directional Diagrams including how to remove/replace your Alternator Belt and set the proper Tension.
possibly. have you changed all your filters? check air filter and throttle body. may be ruined from the water. the throttle body can be cleaned with a fuel injection spray. does your check engine light come on?
well maybe there was some mis-communication there , nissan stopped using timing belts in sentra's and actually most all models in 2000 , maybe they were telling you that your serpentine belt needed changed ? but to answer your question , you do not have a timing belt in your 2002 nissan sentra . its a chain . thanks
