Question about Cars & Trucks
These nissan serenas with the diesel engine suffer from the camshaft timing gear locating pin wearing out ,,Do not try to start the engine but remove the timing belt then take the camshaft gear off and look on the inside where it should have a cast lug that locates the gearwheel ,fit a new gearwheel if its locating lug is worn away ,then before you fit the big bolt you drill a 4 mm hole through the gearwheel into the camshaft so the hole into the camshaft goes in anout 6/7 mm drilling in from the front of the gearwheel then make a steel pin or cut a maisonary nail down to fit then refit the bolt so the head of the flanged bolt holds the pin in this will stop it going in the futrue ,yes i know its not a recomended type of repair according to the dealer but iam a old fleet vehicle fitter and this is the sort of modification that a proper fleet mechanic would ensure was carried out .

The Engines aren't the same for these two cars.
NISSAN SERENA RUNS EITHER: THE "SR" FAMILY ENGINE or THE "QR" FAMILY ENGINE. Find out which is yours.
NISSAN LARGO RUNS THE "KA" FAMILY ENGINE. IT IS THE SAME ENGINE FOUND INSIDE THE FAMOUS '240SX', I HOPE THIS HELPS YOU.
