SOURCE: where is the flasher relay located in 2001 nissan

Do you mean the flasher? Under the dash on that side, near the side of the car. Should be round, about the size of a silver dollar.

If you mean a relay for the turn signals/hazard lights that (if there is one) would be in the "fuse box" under the hood.

How do i change the timing belt on a nissan altima 2001

A Nissan ultima does not have a timing belt,it has a timing chain,look up in your manual for your maintenance schedules when and at what mileage you are needed to change the chain,usually the chain is changed when it is loose through stretching in wear over mileage,a very loose chain has a rattling noise in the engine compartment by the cam gears,good luck ,hope that I was helpful.

Removeing and installing tensin pully for 2000 nissan altima


The tension pulley is mounted onto a semi-flat mounting bracket that is, in turn, mounted at three points, using bolts that also hold the timing chain cover. You have to jack up the bottom of the motor for temporary support and pull the top engine mount in order to get it off. To replace the tension pulley, ensure that You have the proper kit to replace it and follow the steps below:
  1. Make sure You wedge the car after packing it in a garage where You want to remove and install this tension pulley,
  2. Remove the negative terminal on the battery and leave the car for about 15 minutes before working on the car,
  3. Remove passenger side wheel,
  4. Take off the plastic access panel that is low and to the right in the wheel well opening. It has several plastic screws,
  5. You can now see the tensioner pulley and lower belt. Use a 14mm socket on an extension and loosen the bolt on the pulley.
  6. Behind and under the pulley bracket is an adjuster bolt. Loosen that to be able to move the pulley upward and allowing for the belt to come loose and off. This is now a good time to change that lower drive belt. It will now flop right off the AC compressor, tensioner pulley, and crank pulley.
  7. Reassemble in reverse order.
  8. Remember to fix the negative terminal of the battery back on.
Hope this helped. Thank You for using FixYa!!!

What will my car sound like, if the timing chain needs to be replaced? I have a 1997 Nissan Altima.

there will be a rattle the front of the engine. the end with all your pulleys and belts on. And it will be hard to work out if it's in the engine or the pulleys.

It is a common that a TICKING coming from the front of the engine is the timing chain guide.
