Look in manual if you have one engine rod and timing mechanism have to be at TDC or top dead center.

Why won't my 1996 nissan pickup start after changing the oil pump

Hi Bryan, I'm Al the owner of Big As Auto Repair

Bryan, If you changed the oil pump on your 1996 Nissan Pickup and it involved removing the timing chain then I would say you did not get the timing set back up correctly and hopefully you do not have the interference engine because if you do you possibly could have bent the valves in the head. This can be costly. Here's what I need to know. Did you remove the timing chain to do the oil pump? If you did send the engine size to my website below through "Contact Us" and I'll see if your engine is a interference engine. We may be able to work together and get you out of this mess. Have an awesome day Bryan! Auto Repair

Tears timing chain ajuster off nissan1989 four times

I'm assuming that you are talking about 1989 Nissan Truck 4WD 3.0L FI 6cyl.

In this models, the Z24i and KA24E engines do not use the pin counting method for finding correct valve timing. Instead, set the timing chain by aligning its mating marks with those of the crankshaft sprocket and camshaft sprocket. The camshaft sprocket should be installed by fitting the knock pin of the camshaft into its No. 2 hole. On the Z24i engine, the No. 2 timing mark must also be used.

Excatly, what is the problem? Adjuts timing procedure?

I have a 2003 Nissan Sentra with the 1.8 liter engine. I have been told that I should have the timing chain replaced but everything I can find to reference says that Nissan guarantees this chain for the...

I would replace it anyways, it's what we call "Cheap Insurance" since we can't see inside the engine we really don't know what the condition of the chain is or what it looks like. Timing Chains do stretch over time. Nissan may guarantee the chain for the life of the car but that's all they will guarantee. They will give you a new chain and if your engine gets damaged from the chain breaking or jumping a tooth that's not their problem. You will have a new chain but a worthless motor. For "Piece of Mind" I would change it and than you won't have to worry about it anymore.

My 97 nissan pickup 4 cylinder is rolling over just wont fire like its not getting a spark or not getting any gas.what can i do?

The KA24E motor in these trucks does NOT use a belt for timing. It has a chain and although I have not had one break, the guides wear out and cause wear into the cover from slapping that will cause a coolant leak into the engine oil. While that should be checked, and could have jumped a tooth, I doubt thats the problem. If the starter sounds like there is no load, and the engine is spining freely, then you lost compression and I would check the timing chain. If it sounds the same when cranking but no fire, I would check spark - hold a wire close to a bolt on the engine and see if a spark jumps while cranking. If it does then it might be a fuel problem - spray some carb cleaner into the throttle body and see if it fires over for a second. then you will have eliminated the basic cause - fuel or spark?. No spark could be anything from coil to distributor module to computer or a wire in between. I would also take the dist. cap off and make sure the cap is ok and the rotor is still attatched to the dist. If the chain broke or jumped a tooth or 2, it most likely caused valve damage. This is an "interference" motor.

1990 toyota pickup with 22re engine and 235000 miles failed smog in cali.,not because of emissions but because timing was at 30 degrees instead of 10. It starts and runs well. I have not adjusted timing ....

Reset the engine timing by first jumping pins E1 and Te1 in the grey box under the hood. If the truck runs poorly set to proper timing, your timing chain has jumped a tooth. Does it rattle bad at idle? Id so, the guides are worn out, and the chain is stretched.

1993 nissan pickup 2.4 liter back firing just rebuilt engine timing isnt 180 out distibuter isnt 180 out blowing embers out tailpipe and exhaust flutters

Loosen the valves up and reset valve clearance and since it is blowing out the exhaust there is 3 things it can be, timing belt, or chain or valves to tight or distrbutor is off. My guess is you put the chain on and it slipped 3 or 4 teeth and is backfireing threw the exhaust. If you need more help post here and I will help.
