A good rough guide for any vehicle is to replace the timing belt every 60,000 miles. You're due for one if it's never been done before.

Hi my 1997 nisan sentra has the service engine soon light on my mechanic says i may have to replace the timing belt soon is it worth it? i keep hearing a ticking sound and it only seems to be getting...


a timing belt change is not monitored by the service engine soon light.it comes on when the computer detects a problem and sets a code.the code will have to be pulled to know what area to start to diagnose.the ticking could be anything from low or dirty oil needing to be changed to the valves may need adjusting,even a worn or dry belt can make a ticking sound.you don`t say how many miles are on the car or if you have changed the timing belt.if the mileage is over 100,000 kil(60,000 miles) then it should be changed.

I 2005 nissan navara outlaw, there are 79500 miles on it, at how many miles does the timing chain need serviced or changed?


It is usually the timing chain tensioner that malfunctions. However if you have a timing BELT it should be replaced between 75-80k miles.

A chain driven system will typically outlast the engine itself if everything is in a good order.

However there was a recall on some frontier engine's timing parts, you may want to have your VIN checked at a local dealer to ensure your engine doesn't qualify for the TSB repair.

I have 103,500 miles on my 2002 nissan sentra when should I change the timing chain


The timing chain doesn't really have a maintenance period. They don't have a habit of breaking or stretching. Timing belts on some vehicles do have a recomended replacement period. Locate your local NTB, Firestone, or Sears for the maintenance schedule.

Replace timng belt


well maybe there was some mis-communication there , nissan stopped using timing belts in sentra's and actually most all models in 2000 , maybe they were telling you that your serpentine belt needed changed ? but to answer your question , you do not have a timing belt in your 2002 nissan sentra . its a chain . thanks
