Can it be inverted?

If it can I would measure carefully and place an "X" across it to find the exact center. Then I would tie a sewing needle to a piece of string attached to a paperclip to act as a plumb-bob to indicate the center after making sure it is completely level.

Rear hatch wont open.howto get into hatch mecanism

The easiest way to get in there is to use a hole saw about four inches in diameter and drill a hole about six inches up from the bottom of the liner and about six inches towards the drivers side from the center. (one hole, two measurements). You can then reach in and release the latch by pulling on the control rod that goes between the handle and the latch itself..After you have gotten in there, it's easy to find a new liner in most scrapyards (cheap) or to make a cover for the hole you made.
Most latches on those rust up and can usually be worked free using wd40 or other solvent and a bit of patience. Also, the control rod sometimes falls off the clip retainer and needs to be secured better.

Massive oil leak from somewhere in back motor, lost 5 qts in 3 days. not sure where to repair

Loosing that much could only be the oil pressure sending unit. They blow out. I don't know where yours is exactly, but they are usually on the top, center of the engine in the very back. About three inches long and have a base about 1 1/4 inches in diameter.

How do you set the timing on a 94 Nissan Sentra?

There is 3 marks on the timing chain, 2 are exactly 16 links apart and the other is 22 from either of the 2. The engine should be at top dead center. Line the 2 (16 apart) marks with marks on your cam gears and the 3rd with your crank gear. Torque cam bearings to 100 inch lbs.

Were are the freeze plugs

The freeze plugs are round, about 2 inches in diameter, and tend to be along the mid part of the engine casting. Sometimes one in front and/or in back as well. They are domed out when installed, and by flattening the dome with a hammer, they expand. If they leak, (usually more from rust then freezing), they can be removed by drilling a hole in the middle, threading a screw in the hole, and using a claw hammer or pry bar to restore the dome. Or you can just chisel it in half if you need to. But don't nick the edges too much. Use sealer on the new on. They sell replacements with a nut in the center, that caused it to flatten and widen when tightened, so you don't need to use a hammer. There usually is not room for that when the engine is in the car.

Water on the floor

I've ran into this problem before with another jeep. What happens is the condensation drain line from the evaporator housing gets plugged with the material that insulates the housing and the water can't drain and seeps through the seems and drips on the passenger side floor. Chrysler did at one time sale a plug kit for this. What you would do is drill a 1/4" hole in the side of the housing on the left hand side near the bottom and put a stiff piece of wire in it to unplug the drain line and then plug the hole with the plug kit from chrysler. just when your drilling the hole make sure you don't drill into the evaporator core or your freeon will leak out as well. I'm not exactly sure how far from the bottom to drill the hole if I remember right it is 2 inches just about center. Chrysler did have a service bulletin on this you may want to ask them when you see bout the plug kit.
