Hello, I need the timing marks for a 1995 nissian maxima

SOURCE: does nissan maxima 2001 has a timing belt or chain

For the 2001 Nissan Maxima 3.0L SFI DOHC V6:
It has a Timing Chain.
Unlike Timing Belts, Timing Chains will normally last the lifetime of the car. However, when it is time to change the Water Pump: it is a really great idea to change the Timing Chain and Camshaft and Crankshaft Sprockets, as you are in the vicinity and have already torn down everything already.
Professionally, but not officially, I like the 100,000 miles rule with Timing Chains.

Let me know if this helped, or if you have additional information or questions. Feel Free to contact me at FixYa.com!

You can wait its just fine, However if you ever start to notice oil leaking from front cover, then you will need to change. If there is no loss in power feel sluggish especially on take off, Its almost impossible for these type of chains to break. So enjoy until the wheel fall off..lol. good luck

SOURCE: timing belt on 2003 nissan pathfinder

timing belts and chains are 2 very diff things, belts are rubber and wear out in about 80,000, chains are well chains and made of very strong steel they will last the life of the engine in most cars and trucks but not all cases. there is no recommended change mileage by any manufacturer, if the engine is torn down for an overhaul then yes it is wise to replace the chain, but only then, otherwise it is a very expensive waste of money.

I was driving my Nissan Maxima engine made a weird noise engine shut off wont start timing cover broke what to do now


That doesn't sound good. Sounds like your timing chain broke, which almost certainly means you have valve damage too, as at least one set of valves would be down when the chain broke and the piston will have made contact.

Some Maxima have belts, but the fact it broke the cover, leads me to believe your is chain driven camshaft.

It is a big job best left to a garage.

Is there a way to check the timing chain without removing the cover ( this is quite a job) for a look at the timing marks


no way of doing so. need to remove cover. i have been doing this since 1996 and have never seen chain driven nissan jump timing. have seen some timing belt cars jump, but never chain driven engines. i think you have something else going on. i have done many and many timing chain jobs on frontiers and maximas, but not for a timing chain jumping issue. upper timing chain shoes wear out and engine gets noisy. i have to say i have seen some with the primary chain stretched a bit, but car still ran fine.

I have a 2005 V6 Altima. It makes a whining noise when I drive it. If I am coming down a steep hill, the sound I hear is like the gear is stuck and not shifting correctly. When I had my oil replaced...


sounds to me like they are right on the money. its a pretty common issue on 3.5 litre engine in a altima, maxima murano and quest. you do need upper timing chains and chain tensoiners. its unfortunate that those cars have an issue,but thats what you need. nissan has been pretty reliable vehicle until the new models came out (1999 and up). The upper timing chains are known to go bad even in some 4.0 litre engines. good luck with that, that is a job that requires some car knowledge and mechanical skill to get it done.

2005 Nissan Altima needs timing chain repair/replace what will it cost me appox.?


You need to know if your car engines is a interference motor first !! An interference motor is when the timing belt breaks while you are driving and the valves stop but the piston heads keep going up into the valves and destroys them and the heads that hit them. Usually for a mechanic will charge you about 50 or 60 dollars an hour so he has the book that tells him how long it will take to replace the timing belt so go call several of them they will say the same thing trust me I have called many of them in the past myself.

your engine has a timing belt not a chain and the water pump is run by the timing belt,and when the pump is changed the belt should be too,it should run you about $300 if the job is done right with the pump,belt,idlers and tensioner if needed,hope this helps

Timing chain noise on nissan altima 2005 change oil for syntetic 5 w 30 and it got worse before did it only when cold now is doing it at all the times


The timing chaing noise is very common on almost all v6 nissan engines. There is a significant difference for the maxima's though.

Timing chain noise is very common and it is the result of the secondary timing chain tensioners. They often stick and put too much tension on the chain and the plastic guides for the tensioner wear down to metal and that is the noise you hear.

At Nissan, I have performed this replacement many times and I suggest you take it to the dealership to have it fixed.
