I would pull the timing cover off and check if anything came loose. Check the tensioner, check timing marks for still being true. Turn the engine a few revolutions by hand to see if all looks good.

Hi Sarah, It would seem to me that either the tensioner or a bolt has come loose on the timing assembly. Unfortunately if something like that happens and the chain jumps, the valves would loose synchronization with the crankshaft and pistons, meaning there could have been collision between them, thereby causing damage to the valves and possibly to the pistons. To solve the problem will mean dismantling and checking the timing mark alignment against the relevant match marks. I am suspecting that you will find that they no longer align and will need realignment. (meaning you'll need to do the previous job over) and when completed carry out a compression test. If after assembly and carrying out that test the compression is very low, the valves will probably have been bent. You will need to remove the cylinder head and carry out rehabilitation. Unfortunately the only way to inspect piston, con-rod and crankshaft damage is a complete dismantling. Regards John

SOURCE: 1997 nissan pickup 4wd, just had timing chain

Not likely. You have a 4 cyl engine with over head cam. It has hydrolic lifters. If it wasn't making the noise before he replaced the chain, then its something he did...or didn't do. If it was making the noise before, most common reason would be 1 or more lifters not pumping up. If you have a six cyl, no one changed the timing chain, (It doesn't have one!) The 3.0 6cyl has a belt.

First you need to retrace your steps...before you changed the timing chain and gears did It run ok ? what was initial problem, next put a fuel pressure gauge on your fuel line and cycle your key on to run pos, dont have to try start, just run and see if you have fuel press during the 3 sec or so pump cycles, should be around i think 35-45 roughly for tbi. so if you have good fuel pressure , then you say you have good spark, then your problem is either ingition or valve timing, did your dist.come loose, did you properly install chain & gears and align timing marks. did you have somethine else a part on it too like intake, dist, ? get back with me I'll try to help you.

I have a 1994 Nissan pickup and it has no power and it knocks


Have a mechanic listen to it to see if it's a loose piston rod knocking (rebuild time!). Is it a high mileage engine?
Those are very good engines, but have a known problem with the timing chain guides and tensioner wearing, making noise, and need replacing. I think there are aftermarket kits sold to correct the problem.
Good luck.

Should you replace the timing chain in a 1995 2wd pickup and if so how often


timing chains in most cases never need be repalced for the life of the engine, timing belts on the other hand last about 60,000-100,000 miles.

93 Nissan Pickup 2400/12 valve


I would venture to guess that a timing chain guide broke and the chain chewed a hole thought the timing cover. The timing cover also has coolant passing through it where the water pump is attached. If you were running a multi viscosity oil, even it it were a 20-40 and got surprised by a zero degree day, I doubt seriously, it would cause that to occur. That series engine had problem s with timing chain guide failures. However, there usually is some chain rattle well before a disastrous failure. Most of my customers noticed the chain noise before it has caused catastrophic damage.
Sorry you have suffered such a loss. Good luck on your repair. A used timing cover would be the cheapest route. A place in Dallas called Bishops, buys engine cores, dismantles them, evaluates them, cleans the good parts up and sells them at very reasonable prices. They ship all over the country.

My car is making this weird knocking noise and people tell me its the timing chain it wont go over 40 mph now it drove fine till i had it out one day and it lost power and started knocking it still runs...


The rod knocking is caused by loss of oil pressure. Did the oil light not come on? That light is red, red means stop. Do not start this engine again until the problem is corrected.

Have you checked the oil level?

94 toyota 4x4 5 speed 4 cyl 22re engine


Get the timing checked. If it is off over 5-8 degrees, you may have a timing chain that has jumped a tooth. This is a common issue with the 22 RE with high mileage. Let me ask you this, and this may narrow down my solution...Is there a slight "rapping noise" in the front of the engine? If so, the timing chain guids may be worn or broken. Get the timing checked, and advise me of the findings.
