SOURCE: timing belt 1994 nissan altima

My 1994 Altima has a timing chain on it and these are supposed to last the life of the engine. I would say unless you can really hear the problem then to leave it alone.

SOURCE: how to change a fuel pupmp in a 1994 nissian

once you have access to the fuel pump, there is a cover that comes off...usually 4 bolts, then you will have access to the gas tank. Nissan is great for fuel pump replacements, you don't have to drop the tank. anyways, once the access panel is removed you will see the tank, and the wiring that goes to the fuel pump. the pump/sending unit is held in by 8 or 10 small screws. once he cleans the area he will see this easier. these can be a pain so tell him to take his time and get a good grip on the screws so he doesn't strip them. be careful removing/installing, these are fragile items. good luck with this, its real easy and you will be satisfied that you did the work yourself. let me know the outcome.

SOURCE: at what milage should a timing belt be changed on

60-80,000 miles is a great benchmark for ANY vehicle. nissan recomends 105,000 miles which seems a little excessive to me. be careful because this engine is listed as an interference motor and WILL cause internal engine damage if it was to break.

Hi my name is sandy, my 03 nissan altima has a problem with the belt tensioner I went to a auto part and bought one there. didn't work. and then went to the dealer and bought another tensioner, it works...

Hi Sandy

Sounds like the belt is loose, the belt for your ac will be connected to the tensioner. If they have had to change the tensioner then they may have not correctly aligned the belts or even left an engine mount loose. it sounds like a simple fix but get it check at the garage that done the work. at the end of the day you have paid them so make sure they have done the job correctly.

Oil and white smoke come from the tailpipe. it sputters and does not have a lot of power. is this cause there is water in the oil?

I would take the car straight to the dealer.
There is a Nissian technical bulletins out for this engine and Nissian has extended coverage for the engine. The engine has internal damage and Nissian is well aware of the issue.

You have a timing chain no belt. Changing is not necessary unless there is a failure. Water pump will need changing when it leaks.
