The timing chain is not a maintaince item like a timing belt. So there is not set number. Yopu change it when you hear it knocking or slapping around.

SOURCE: How do I replace timing chain assembly on a 1998

This is no small job for someone not mecahinically inclined.
But if you really mean it< get the hanyes repair amnual at any autoparts store. It will help you greatly. They are sold for less $20. Better than wrecking the engine in case your timing is off. A brief, however: reove the battery from the hood. Drain the oil and coolant into separate containers. Remove the engine head-cover.(If rear-wheel drive: remove the cooling fan assembly and plug the transmission hoses-if automatic)
Align the timing marks on the crank pulley and the camshaft sproket to their upmost level. Then loosen the nuts. Pull out the crank pulley and sproket. the new timing chain has a separate link that is identified. And this must be put into proper position. If you don't, you will wreck the engine! The crank pulley too, must be positioned correectly otherwise, its a disaster.
If you got all these done, you will have to set the number-1 piston to the BTDC[before top-dead center] and then put bcak the battery and try to test crank. Note that the distributor must be positioned correctly also. That's why you need a good shop manual to help. Without anthing to guide, you'll have serious trouble, resulting in wrecking the engine. It can be very challenging even for moderate mechanically inclined guys.

My 97 nissan 200sx 1.6 liter. Almost stalls when i stop, but it stays runing,and some times it does stall.


We have two Nissan 200sx's, a 1995 manual and a 1996 auto. Both had this problem and both turned out to be the same thing. The "idle air control valve." It was most noticeable if you ran the air conditioner and then came up to a red light. You would have to keep pushing on the brake and race the engine a little to keep it from shutting off. Replaced that part and both cars have never had the problem again.

Turbo installation on 1996 nissan 200sx


That vehicle never came with a turbo as an option. Therefore adding a turbo would be custom work. You may find someone online who has documented their modification process. If you purchase an aftermarket turbo system it will come with a manual. Short of that such a document does not exist.
