To be honest, just every now and then. For the first two or three times, if you don't really know it's past schedule, flush it the first time, then maybe 50K miles, then maybe 100K. Dex-Ron vehicles (AKA GM headgasket eaters) often suggest 250K, but just go with a hundred thousand miles. That way you know sooner if something is oddballing.

Not really a problem - I bought the 2000 Altima with 145,000 miles. Running great. But, are there any maintenance logs with the various servicing schedules/components/time intervals available for that...


You create your own with all your vehicles

Treat them all the same & keep a log book

You should be doing a lot more than anything
out there especially MFG Scheduled Maint
Follow that alone you will break down

The Nissan Altima does not use a timing belt, it uses a chain driven camshaft, timing chains have no set mileage and should last the life of the engine.

Whats the bottom line on '05 nissan altima with 3.5 motor.does it have a timing chain or belt and does it make a difference on wether it needs to be replaced at 105,000 miles as the recommended mileage


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.

03 nissan altima overheats,replaced both thermo 3days ago,water pump change was changed 11 month ago, today rad flush was done


A car when overheats means two things: (1) Timing may be off including electrical (2) bad head gasket. Chec for code reading with a OBDII reader to be more .
May need a tune up!

Even when warmed up and driving my 2003 Nissan Altima changes gears pretty hard.


You need a transmission flush through the radiator and transmission
a new tranny filter and clean the pan.If this still happens then your transmition is slipping gears because of shaved gears this is noticable
when there is lots of metal particles or chunks.If this occours than i suggest a rebuild or used transmition.

No Problem


Check air filter replace gas filer spark plugs check all belts and houses,check brakes/rootrs rotate and balance tire and do wheel alignment, check thermostat flush radiator. Check timing belt recommended that it's replace at 60,000 mile. If you are doing a major service you should replace timing belt and water pump together with all the seals inside of timing area. All items that you check, replace if needed. Yeah at this mileage its a major service interval. Good Luck
