I have 160,000 miles on my max and have never replaced or had problems with my timing chain. Wondering if I should go change it now with so many miles on my car or just wait?

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

If this engine is the six cylinder then no. but i would change grade of motor oil. use something for high mileage cars. but if the chain tensioner starts making noises then it is time to change everything. and if V6 model then there is four chains and a tensioner to change.

2003 nissan xterra v-6 does it have a timing chain or belt and if it has a belt when does it need to be changed?


It has a timing belt, not a chain. Easy enough to check your owners manual. From memory, belt is to be replaced at about 100,000 miles or 160,000 km give or take.

Clicking sound under hood - possible timing chain


timing chain life span varies, it depends on what type of driving u do, for instance heavy on the throttle wears ythem out faster from the streaching this causes, but at 160,000 miles the noise u are hearing is likely a loose timing chain, replace it before it comes apart and damages the engine. This job is not for the home mechanic, it requires special tools and a high degree of skill and a factory service manual is a must.

Does My 93 Camry have a timing chain or Belt ? when to change it?


its timing belt. This car requires the timing belt to be serviced at every 60k miles. This engine is a non-interference motor, so the engine will not get damaged internally if belt breaks. But other parts externally can become damaged. Also at the same time the timing belt is changed, replace the water pump, idler and tensioner pulleys.
