SOURCE: i replaced timing chains,guides and sprockets. how

make sure that the witness marks on the cam and the crank are in sync with each other. then check for tdc on #1 and check the rotor position relative to #1 on the distributor and see if it mates. time the engine per the factory spec. the haynes manual will tell you all that if you get one from the parts store.

SOURCE: 02 altima 3.5l-timing chain-tuogh job?what should

I would not do this job myself if I were you unless you are very good at following directions and you have done things like this in the past. . A v6 nissan engine is very difficult to time properly. I you are even one tooth off you can bend a valve or ruin the ignition system. If you are going to do it yourself make sure you have all guides and all inserts on before setting timing.

Is it true you can just remove the guides to stop the t/chain rattle

The timing chain guides are extremely important. Without the guides, the chain and gears will wear out MUCH more quickly. The only correct fix for a noisy timing chain is to replace the chain AND gears at the same time.

Timing chain noise on nissan altima 2005 change oil for syntetic 5 w 30 and it got worse before did it only when cold now is doing it at all the times

The timing chaing noise is very common on almost all v6 nissan engines. There is a significant difference for the maxima's though.

Timing chain noise is very common and it is the result of the secondary timing chain tensioners. They often stick and put too much tension on the chain and the plastic guides for the tensioner wear down to metal and that is the noise you hear.

At Nissan, I have performed this replacement many times and I suggest you take it to the dealership to have it fixed.

What will my car sound like, if the timing chain needs to be replaced? I have a 1997 Nissan Altima.

there will be a rattle the front of the engine. the end with all your pulleys and belts on. And it will be hard to work out if it's in the engine or the pulleys.

It is a common that a TICKING coming from the front of the engine is the timing chain guide.

'94 Nissan Altima rattles

Hi there,
you will need new upper timing chain and sprockets. Common problem on altima your year. Nissan has TSB for it. First they had us remove the upper timing chain guide, but after that, they had us replace all top chain components.
