SOURCE: 1988 Nissan Pulsar will not engage clutch. Engine

You need to replace the clutch and pressure plate --your clutch is worn out. Plus other parts like throw-out bearing ,pilot bearing and may even need the flywheel machined flat.
You need to take it to a shop or if you are mechanicaly minded could do it your yourself,

Is a 2000 nissan 2.4 twin cam with a timing chain a interference engine?

There is no reference to it being an interference engine. However it is always advisable to treat all motors as interference motors when setting the timing as that way there will be no bent valves
Always position no 1 piston on TDC compression stroke before working on the chains
That way all timing marks will be aligned or close to alignment when refitting the chain.

Can some one show me timeing mark on 1997 nissan maxima please

wow a Nissan Camry.
what engine, ??????????
what are you doing, we dont know. so..
cam marks? chain marks?
spark timing?

in 1997, most cars have 6 or more marks.

Nissan V6? is it (guessing i am)
if doing major cam work , you will need far more that just mark data.

if doing serious work, i recommend the below
  1. a real FSM, from NISSAN if Nissan.
all nissan engines are All Interference
so doing cam work or finding engine dead,
do a leak down test by hand before cranking engine
or bend the valves.
after replacing chain, do a cyl. leak down test (a tool)
and if it fails, the valves were bent, do not crank engine
or the damage WILL cascade $$$$$$$$$$$$$$

I have a 1993 jeep grand cherokee 4.0l and need a diagram for the timing chain links. i was told that there is to be 15 links between marks and then told 20. need help please.thanks

I don't have a diagram I can post, but once you install the new chain and have the two timing marks pointing toward each other, then turn the Crankshaft around twice and see if the two timing marks still line up. Remember, the crankshaft turns two times for every one time the camshaft turns.

I understand the 15 vs. 20, but that's neither here nor there. What the Factory Service Manual states is there should be 15 "pins" between the timing marks when the timing chain is set up properly. (?) The links you speak of aren't what you're's the pins in the chain. In other words, for each link of the Timing Chain, there are two pins, holding it in place...or a total of 48 pins on the length of the entire timing chain. Personally? When I install a timing chain, I rotate the crankshaft around twice to see if the timing marks still match up, and before putting everything back together, I start the Engine for a brief few seconds thereby knowing after reassembling everything, the Engine WILL Start.

If you're still concerned about the 15 pin thing, stop by your local Dealership and look in the Factory manual in Section 9 (Engine), Page 36 for a picture of the 15 so-called "chain-pins."

Hope this helps,

~00 Buck~
