It's a chain, and there are complete R&R instructions at AutoZone.com: http://www.autozone.com/autozone/repairinfo/repairguide/repairGuideContent.jsp?pageId=0996b43f80381cca.

If 105K is the recommended interval, I think I would at least perform an inspection for stretching and maybe make sure the tensioner is still holding it tight.

How do i change the timing belt on a nissan altima 2001


A Nissan ultima does not have a timing belt,it has a timing chain,look up in your manual for your maintenance schedules when and at what mileage you are needed to change the chain,usually the chain is changed when it is loose through stretching in wear over mileage,a very loose chain has a rattling noise in the engine compartment by the cam gears,good luck ,hope that I was helpful.

2005 Nissan Altima needs timing chain repair/replace what will it cost me appox.?


You need to know if your car engines is a interference motor first !! An interference motor is when the timing belt breaks while you are driving and the valves stop but the piston heads keep going up into the valves and destroys them and the heads that hit them. Usually for a mechanic will charge you about 50 or 60 dollars an hour so he has the book that tells him how long it will take to replace the timing belt so go call several of them they will say the same thing trust me I have called many of them in the past myself.

Follow your owners manaul, it has all the services needed according to mileage, of course if you havent been following the book, it doesnt do much good, and you are overdue for Coolant, Trans fluid/ filter, belts, filters, ect. Your car should have a timing chain.

That's a load of **** they are feeding you.The timing chain tentioner has a fault and not tentioning the chian.I think you have done a good thing keeping it on synthetic oil.That causes less wear on moving parts than other oils.

00 SE Altima, Is it the timing chain or the motor or both??


If the engine spins over very fast like it is not under any kind of pressure then the timing chain/belt has failed. There is a considerable amount of damage that can accrue when this happens. You may not be able to replace the chain/belt and repair the problem now. It may actually be cheaper to replace the motor now than repair the old one. So they may both be correct. Hope this helps. Good luck.

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