Is there a timing belt and performance difference on the 1.6L 16V engine type ? i was told that there's something to do with E/I position? sidekick/vitara 1994 lwb 4 doors if it matters.

no, the E and marks are for 2 engines.
E mark for G16B (16valve MPI engine)
I and E marke are for the twin cam engine, (see link for deeper facts)
if you use the wrong marks, the engine will not run
and compression falls by 1/2 from 180 psi to 90 or less.

the G16A is different 8v head, yours is the 95HP, 16valve head.

covers all ways to do it right and wrong.

What kind or brand of automatic transmission fluid i should use in 2002 nissan sentra

Just standard ATF, Not type F. Actually I have heard you can use any Tranny fluid in Non Ford models but can only use Type F fluid in Ford model vehicles. I used to use type F in my MOPAR with Performance engine and Tranny with no problems. But if you are worried then use ATF or ATF+4 fluid and you should be fine.

Need to know where to put fluid for automatic gear box bongo 1996

read the operators guide yet?
sure lost.
the dip stick , note the large dip tube, that also serves as filler pipe.
do not fill it like the engine, or you will cause the ATF to foam up
and wreck the tranny.
read the operators guide, for correct way.
its done hot.
cycle gears.
the in park ceck it. running.

many cars use this method, be sure to get your book and your method.
eg. a suzuki. (read this for typical flavor)

keep in mind we dont know what engine is in your car or tranny
they are matched, so... cant look that up.
