Question about 1995 Nissan Maxima

1 Answer

Please confirm this statement....only if you really know!!!!

Does my 4th gen need a timing belt replacement? No.

All VQ equiped Maximas (1995 - on) use a dual stage timing chain. This needs no periodic maintenace or replacement. It is designed to last the life of the engine. This is a very good thing. CAN ANYONE TELL ME IF THIS IS A TRUE STATEMENT??!!! :)

That may be true, but you also have to look at it this way: Dealers give you a warranty when you buy a vehicle, whether it is 36,000 mile/36 month or more or less, well they only give you a warranty for so long because they know that eventually it will break down. Parts only last so long, especially moving parts. Most engine are not expected to last more than 150,000 miles. So I would eventually replace the timing chain. Most vehicles say to change them at 60,000 miles as routine maintenance. Hope this helps.

Car not running right

I had the same problem when my head gasket went last July 4th. You may have to adjust the idle under the hood. I also had a jumped timing belt, but that's probably irrelevant. And like Chuck said, I recommend buying a manual, it has everything you need to know about your car. Hope this helps!

Replace timing belt

Should be done every 100,000 miles or so, and on the Escape it runs about 800 bucks to have a shop do it. If your REALLY comfortable working on cars you should be able to do it for the price of the belt, 20 bucks, but it is gonna take all day.
On a side not "Replace timing belt" is not a question....... More of a statement.

The battery and break light came on and a belt was broke off

i don't know if that was a question or a statement, if the belt broke off then replace it. it is probably the reason your brake light and your battery light came on. your alternator can't charge the battery with no acc belt and as for the brakes, well i need more info to really answer anything further. i don't even know there is a question involved.

Timing belt is hard to find

you should be able to call the honda dealer and give them the VIN# to the car and they should be able to pull it up for you.

When to change timing belt on 1996 nissan maxima

Maximas had a timig belt until 1994. Some Maximas from 1992-1994 had chains also, but only the VE30DE models. All VG30 models had timing belt. Since 1995 all maximas (A32, A33, A34 the all new A35) have timing chains and the rarely/never fail. In fact in my 12+ years with nissan, I have't seen/replaced single timing chain in a Maxima, so pretty bullet proof setup and I have had few of those cars and have one right now. Awesome cars, by the way, just keep up with the oil changes and it will run forever. One of my Maximas had 245000 miles, when I was selling it and I still see it on the road here and there. BULLET PROOF engines.
