Veiw of 97 nissan maxima altenator on motor




The easiest way to test the performance of the alternator is to perform a regulated voltage test.

  1. Start the engine and allow it to reach operating temperature.
  2. Connect a voltmeter between the positive and negative terminals of the battery.
  3. Voltage should be 14.1-14.7 volts.
  4. If voltage is higher or lower than specification, connect a voltmeter between the battery positive (B+) voltage output terminal of the alternator and a good engine ground.
  5. Voltage should be 14.1-14.7 volts.
  6. If voltage is still out of specification, a problem exists in the alternator or voltage regulator.
  7. If voltage is now within specification, a problem exists in the wiring to the battery or in the battery itself.

Many automotive parts stores have alternator bench testers available for use by customers. An alternator bench test is the most definite way to determine the condition of your alternator.


1993-94 Models
See Figures 1 through 5

  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable, for safety purposes.
  2. Remove the right side splash guard from under the vehicle.

Where are the timing marks in a 91 honda prelude

  • Disconnect the negative battery cable and lay it to the side, ensuring that it does not touch metal. Jack the Prelude up and support it with jack stands. Remove the left front wheel using the lug wrench. Remove the lower splash guard using the appropriate socket.
  • Place the block of wood on the floor jack, then push the jack under the engine. Jack it up enough to contact the oil pan, to support the engine. Remove the accessory drive belts by loosening the accessory drive belt tensioner to relive tension on the belts. Lift the belts off the pulleys. Remove the left engine mount using the appropriate socket.
  • Unbolt the speed control actuator, but leave the control cable connected. Lay it
  • out of the way. Remove the alternator wiring from the valve cover by lifting it out of its wire loom. Unbolt the valve cover and carefully lift it off. If the rubber gasket looks dry, rotten or has cracks in it, replace it. Remove the upper timing belt cover using the appropriate sockets.
  • Remove the power steering pump, but do not disconnect the power steering high- and low-pressure hoses. Lay the pump out of the way. Work the dipstick back and forth to pull it out of the hole. Lay it aside.
  • Number the spark plug wires so you know where they go when you put the Prelude back together. Pull the wires off the plugs. Remove the plugs using the spark plug socket. Stick the long screwdriver in the No. 1 cylinder spark plug hole--the hole closest to the timing belt. Turn the engine crankshaft counterclockwise until you feel the piston push the screwdriver up to the top of the piston bore. The screwdriver will stop moving when it is at the top. Check the timing marks on the flywheel. The pointer located in the hole should line up with the hash mark on the flywheel. If not, turn the engine over once again until the piston is at the top of the bore, and the marks will line up.

    4. Carefully pull the timing belt upward but do notmove the crankshaft. If the crankshaft moved, carefully realign the crankshaft timing belt sprocket with the TDC marks. Carefully engage the teeth of the timing belt onto the exhaust camshaft sprocket, but only install the belt about 1/3 of the way onto the sprocket.
    5. Grasp the timing belt on the toothed side and gently lift the belt enough to begin sliding it onto the intake camshaft sprocket.
    6. Once the belt has started to slide onto the intake camshaft sprocket, slide the belt equally onto both the intake and exhaust camshaft sprockets.
    7. Quickly loosen and then retighten the timing belt tensioner bolt.
    8. Remove the tools from the camshaft caps used for securing the camshafts, and remove the cloth used to keep the timing belt engaged in the crankshaft sprocket.
    9. Apply a clockwise load on the intake camshaft sprocket bolt to remove any slack between the intake camshaft sprocket, exhaust camshaft sprocket and the crankshaft timing belt sprocket, then loosen and retighten the timing belt tensioner adjusting bolt to allow tension to be applied to the belt.
    10. Install the crankshaft pulley sprocket/timing belt guide washer.
    11. Install the lower and upper timing covers.
    12. Install the crankshaft pulley and tighten the bolt to 130 ft. lbs. (177 Nm).


      If any binding is felt when adjusting the timing belt tension by turning the crankshaft, STOP turning the engine, because the pistons may be hitting the valves.

    13. Rotate the crankshaft about 5-6 times counterclockwise to seat the timing belt.
    14. Position the No. 1 piston to TDC.
    15. Locate and remove the rubber plug for the timing belt tensioner on the lower timing belt cover.
    16. Loosen the adjusting bolt 1/2 turn by

    20. Install the valve cover.
    21. Install the engine mounting bracket, then remove the jack.
    22. If removed, install the cruise control actuator.
    23. Install the accessory drive belts.
    24. Install the splash guard.
    25. Connect the negative battery cable.
    26. Check the engine operation and road test.


    Never allow antifreeze, oil or solvents to come into with a timing belt. If this occurs immediately wash the solution from the timing belt. Also, never excessive bend or twist the timing belt; this can damage the belt so that its lifetime is severely shortened.

    How to remove alternator

    Park vehicle on level ground.
    2. Remove battery from vehicle.
    3. Remove air cleaner outlet hose, engine under cover ( right side ) and exhaust pipe # 2 .
    4. Disconnect " B " terminal wire and coupler from the Alternator ( Generator ) .
    5. Remove Alternator ( Generator ) belt.

    6. Remove power steering pump. Do not disconnect hoses.
    6. Remove Alternator ( Generator ) cover.
    7. Remove Alternator ( Generator ) bracket mounting bolts.
    8. Remove Alternator ( Generator ).

    Power Steering pump has three bolts- 2 behind the pulley at 12 and 6 o'clock and one bolt on the back.

    Once you get the power steering pump out of the way you can remove the last bolt on the alternator

    Ok...I did not remove axle or disconnect hoses on power steering...I did unbolt power steering pump and moved off to side.

    after that I disconnected sensor on throttle body and very carefully lifted alternator through the top where your air intake assembly would have been at, right next to A.C. refrigerant lines.It takes a minute , you HAVE TO BE CAREFUL NOT TO DAMAGE SENSOR!!

    However it is a lot faster that taking off drive shaft and exhaust pipe!

    If you go to AutoZone .com they have exploded diagrams of the parts you have to take off and they will show you bolt locations, the power steering pump bolt at 6 o'clock drove me crazy.

    P.S. Get a ratcheting 12 mil wrench, it's a life and knuckle saver!!
