Jack the vehicle up and support it with jack stands. Remove the splash guard, the radiator, cooling fan, accessory belts, thermostat water hose, water pump pulley, distributor cover and the air intake tube on the valve cover.

Remove the crankshaft pulley bolt and the crankshaft pulley. Remove the top and bottom timing belt covers. Once the covers are removed, screw the crankshaft pulley bolt back in. Turn the crankshaft until the Number 1 cylinder is on top dead center. The timing marks should be lined up. Timing marks are located on the camshaft pulleys and the crankshaft.

Loosen the timing belt tensioner nut. Turn the tensioner clockwise with an Allen wrench. Tighten the tensioner nut---this will keep the tensioner out of your way while you are removing and replacing the timing belt. Remove the timing belt.

Check to see that the timing marks are still properly lined up. Starting at the crankshaft sprocket and moving counterclockwise, wrap the timing belt around the camshafts. Make sure the timing belt is tight between the sprockets on the opposite side of the tensioner.

Loosen the tensioner nut. Use an Allen wrench to keep the tensioner from moving while you loosen the nut. Turn the tensioner clockwise about 70 degrees and temporarily tighten the tensioner nut. Turn the crankshaft clockwise two complete turns. At the end of the second turn, the timing marks should line up again. If not, remove the belt and repeat Steps 4 and 5.

Put 22 pounds of pressure (with your hand) on the timing belt by pushing in on it at the half-way point between the tensioner and the left camshaft pulley. Hold the tensioner with an Allen wrench and loosen the tensioner nut. Insert a feeler gauge between the tensioner pulley and the belt. If your vehicle year is 1997 or older, the space between the belt and the pulley should be 0.014 ins thick by 0.5 ins. wide. If your vehicle is a 1998 or newer, the space should be 0.020 ins. thick by 0.5 ins. wide.

Turn the crankshaft clockwise (slowly) until the feeler gauge moves up to the 1 o'clock position of the tensioner pulley. It will be between the pulley and the belt. Hold the tensioner with the Allen wrench, then torque the tensioner nut to the following specifications:

32-43 foot pounds of torque: 3.3 engines
32-43 foot pounds of torque: 3.0 engines up to 1996
58 to 65 foot pounds of torque: 3.0 engines from 1997 and on

Turn the crankshaft (slowly) clockwise to remove the feeler gauge. Remove the feeler gauge and turn the crankshaft until Number 1 cylinder is at top dead center and the timing marks line up. Use your hand to put pressure on the timing belt between the two camshaft sprockets. The belt should move 0.50 to 0.60 inches. If not, repeat Steps 6, 7 and 8.

Remove the crankshaft pulley bolt. Reinstall all of the components in the order you removed them. Replace the crankshaft pulley bolt when you replace the pulley. Torque the crankshaft pulley bolt to 95 foot pounds of torque if the year of your vehicle is 1993 or older. Torque the crankshaft pulley bolt to 150 foot pounds of torque if the year of your vehicle is 1994 or newer. Refill the radiator.

I have to replace my water pump on a 1997 nissan terrano (pathfinder) 3.2 deisel turbo, does anyone have a diagram to help me before i start to pull it to pieces?


You really should have the repair manual to your Terrano(Pathfinder). I recently had to replace my water pump on my 89 Pathfinder, so I went on youtube and watched videos pertaining to the task and took their advise.
It is an easy job, however you should replace the timing belt and thermostat when you do the water pump, The tensioner should be replaced too. Their are certain orders and torch specs to loosen or tighten bolts so You really need the manual. Plus if yours is like mine if you dont get the timing on right then you risk messing up the motor. Hope this helped you out.

How do you remove and install a water pump on a 1995 Nissan pathfinder?


big job you will have to remove the timing belt to do it so you might as well change it since you will have it off,but i don' t recommend just any body do it as you will need metric bolt puller set to remove the crank pulley,but mostly you remove the radiator shroud and everything in the way of the plastic belt covers as they have to come off to access belt and water pump.its about four hour job with professional tools.

The water pump went out and someone replaced it and now my car will not start it turns over but will not start .what can be the problem it has never not started before


To install water pump, camshaft timing belt need to come off, if timing belt was not align right at all timing marks, will not start and will bent valve's being this engine is an interference engine.To check if you have bent valve do a cylinder compression test, if any with zero compression bent valve's.
