Question about 1999 Nissan Quest
I replaced the distributor but the engine has a misfire. how do i set the timing back? it is a 99 nissan quest 3.3 liter.
Depress the parking brake pedal, and warm the engine to the normal operating temperature.
Check the ignition timing with a timing light.

Are you sure you have a distributor? Those wnet away many years ago. Everything is now electronic including the spark distibution.

The Quest has a non interference engine meaning that should the belt break the engine would just die without breaking anything. Nissan recommends 105K for changing but that depends on the way the vehicle was driven (driving habits), road conditions etc. If driving on roads for e.g. that are hilly, it labors the engine more thus shortens the lifespan of the belt according to mfg.

There is no other way other than to remove the engine.I now its a lot of work but if you want to do the job properly then thats the way to do it.You can remove the gearbox and try.I think thats a waist of time good luck.
