Question about 2005 Nissan Pathfinder
I have a 2005 Nissan Pathfinder with the 4.0 liter engine. Upon hearing a growling noise coming from the engine, I took it in to Nissan and they quoted me $1750 to replace the timing chain because the plastic gizmo the chain rides on was worn out.
Is this a recall item and what warranty will I have if I have it fixed? Do the same plastic parts go back in?
That is correct. If your engine is whinning at about 2000 rpm's and its a high pitch whine, you need upper timing chains and chain tensioners. aka plastic gizmo as you called it. The timing chains ride off the plastic portion of the tensioner causing the noise, basically the chain is riding on steal stub from within the tensioner, that's where the noise is coming from. Waranree on this is 5years or 60000 miles which ever comes first. And the new tensioners are updated parts.
