Took the car out into my back field and smoked it.It was getting to be such a head ache and I couldn't take it anymore so I lit it on fire and watched it burn to the ground.

Thanx.

I NEED TIMING CHAIN DIAGRAM FOR VQ20 NISSAN SERFIRO 1999


Instructions
  1. Remove Your Timing Chain
    • 1 Check your owner's manual for the recommended mileage for replacing your timing chain. Replacement for a Nissan Altima is 60,000 miles.
    • 2 Locate the timing chain. Replace it if the automatic chain adjuster (also known as the tensioner) is damaged or worn.
    • 3 Drain the cooling system and disengage the negative battery cable. Undo the spark plug wires and set the No. 1 piston at "Top Dead Center" (TDC) of the compression stroke.
    • 4 Disconnect the engine undercover, vacuum and fuel hoses, harness and connectors, drive belts, power steering reservoir, alternator and bracket, upper radiator hose, air duct, front exhaust tube, intake manifold collector supports, collector and exhaust manifold and the distributor.
    • 5 Prop up the oil pan and take out the front engine mounting, the valve cover, camshaft sprockets, cam bearing caps, camshafts, cylinder head bolts (reverse the installation order), cam sprocket cover, upper chain tensioner, chain guides and chain, idler sprocket bolt, cylinder head, intake manifold and cylinder head gasket and the steel oil pan.
    • 6 Place a steel cutter between the steel and aluminum oil pans. Slip the cutter around the oil pan's edge. Disengage the steel oil pan, baffle plate, oil strainer and the front tube.
    • 7 Secure the car on jack stands and place a seal cutter in between the oil pan and cylinder block. Slip the cutter around the oil pan's edge.
    Install Your Timing Chain
    • 8 Reconnect the crankshaft sprocket, oil pump drive spacer, idler sprocket and lower timing chain. Position the lower timing chain on the sprockets and line up the mating marks.
    • 9 Rub on an unbroken bead of liquid gasket and put in a new front cover and oil seal. Secure the bolt at 105 to 112 foot pounds (142 to 152 Nm).
    • 10 Eliminate any old material from the pan and cylinder block mounting surfaces. Rub on a 3.5 to 4.5mm bead of liquid gasket over the oil pan and cylinder block.
    • 11 Attach the upper timing chain to the idler sprockets and secure the cylinder head bolts.
    • 12 Refill the cooling system and add clean oil in the engine.
    • 13 Hook up the negative battery cable and any other disconnected parts or items. Start the engine and look for leaks.
Tips & Warnings
  • Procedures for replacing timing chains in Nissan Altimas vary slightly depending on engine size.
  • Make sure the new timing chain matches the chain you are removing.

Can you tell me how to replace timing chain on a 1966 impala


The best way is to pull the motor out. The timing chain cover needs to come off of the front of the motor (behind the water pump) and this can be done with the motor in the car. The problem comes when you try to put the cover back on. There is a seal that fits in a groove on the bottom of the timing cover. The seal will not let the cover go back into place without damaging the seal. The oil pan needs to be dropped down and then the timing cover goes into place. The oil pan goes on after the timing cover is in place. Any other way will result in premature failure of the timing cover to oil pan seal. If you have enough room under the car and can remove the oil pan, that will work also. I hope this helps.

Change front main seal , leaking oil around timing chain cover. could be seal around harmonica balancer.


yes, I just changed one of these recently. Had to take both front and bottom off engine. Very difficult repair, as there are no good jack points for the engine when you have all the motor mounts off.
Here is procedure I would recommend.
Remove starter and engine to transmission brackets front and back.
Remove transmission starter gear cover.
drain oil and remove oil pan.
put a block under the crankshaft and jack to release weight on motor mount.
remove front motor mount (by serpentine belt)
remove belt.
remove compressor and bracket.
remove crank pulley and vib damper.
remove timing cover. mark timing belt with direction of travel
loosen tensioner gear.
remove timing belt.
remove crankshaft timing gear and key.
remove seal and oil pump housing.
clean gasket surfaces.
replace seal and reverse procedure.

If you have questions, let me know.

Removal of oil pan for chevy lumina 1995


You must raise then engine high enough to remove the oil pan. Loosen motor mount bolts & remove them, jack engine up enough to remove pan or use a chain block. Use wood blocks to support engine at motor mounts. Good luck!

Where is the oil sending unit on a 2002 Chevy Suburban V 8 engine?


Your oil pump is located under your oil pan. You need to remove the pan in order to access it. There is one bolt holding it in place, remove that bolt and then remove the oil pump. This is if you have a 4.3 liter motor.

If you have a 4.8, 5.3 or 6.0 liter motor it is considerably more difficult. If you need step by step instructions let me know, but to answer your question it is located behind the front cover of the engine. You need to remove the front cover exposing the timing chain and the oil pan in order to remove the pump on these motors. Let me know if you need further help.
