The for Pinto 2ltr is a walk in the park compared to the modern engine.

Its not a real hard job get a manual first . make sure every thing is lined up correctly draw a pic where all the marks are.

replace the idler and tentioner as well Gates do a good kit.
Check to see if the cam and crank seals are leaking do them at the same time. Dont break the idler bolt.

My nissan pathfinder is 220,000 km, im not sure if they change the timing belt, i went to mechanic and he told me i have to change my timing belt,do i have to change my timing belt now, it works fine now

Nissan suggests the timing belt be replaced every 103,000 miles. If the belt has never been changed I would say you're living on borrowed time. This is an interference engine so if the belt fails you could end up with a seriously damaged engine.

Told that I needed to have timing belt tensioner guides replaced x 2 and may as well replace timing belts at same time. Guides were made by Nissan of defective, cheap plastic and they have worn out. 2006...

regardless of whether or not the guides are inferior , at 70,000 miles m the timing belt should be replaced anyways. To be clear , your car is due for the timing belt anyways , and even if it wasn't , the belt is not expensive , 90% of the cost of replacing it is the labour of taking apart and putting back together.. If you have to open it up for ANY reason , you might as well replace the belt.

How do i install a intercooler and time belt to my 93 pathfinder

Well first off,there's no intercooler on a '93 Pathfinder. Second the timing belt goes around both camshaft pulleys & if you mess up by a tooth,kiss the engine goodbye. Leave it to a pro. The intercooler thing,dunno,you need to be more specific.
