You change rubber timing belts,because they wear and could break

You do not change a chain,unless the guides wear or the tensioners hang up,so keep changing your oil every 4000 miles or less and use 0W-30 or 5W-30,synthetic if you can afford it (Mobil 1 leaves the engine real clean inside,( I have pulled a couple oil pans)

Be careful because the pistons will hit the valves if the timing isn't set right.

When do you service the timing chain on a 2002 maxima 3.5


you dont. its a maintance free item, unless there is a failure, but nissan really doesnt have many if any issues with timing chains in your model year. its the later models that have issues with some timing chains. in your model i would be watching your oil level. we have seen some of those models burn oil.

Does 2007 altima 3.5 have a chain or timing belt


After 2002 Altima offers two types of engine: the new 4 cylinder 2.5 L QR model engine which is fairly powerful (175 horsepower) and, I believe, one of the best engine in its class the 3.5L V6 VQ model engine with 240 horsepower. The same V6 model as in in the Nissan Maxima, Pathfinder and Murano.
Both engines feature continuously variable valve timing using a silent chain instead of timing belt. Throttle cable is gone - the throttle operates electronically by wire based on gas pedal sensor readings. This design provides smoother transmission shifting and lower emission.
The 2007 Nissan Altima 3.5L Sedan, has a Timing Chain, and an Ignition Coil Pack. NO DISTRIBUTOR.

Does nissan maxima 2001 has a timing belt or chain .and after how many miles does that need to be changed.?


For the 2001 Nissan Maxima 3.0L SFI DOHC V6:
It has a Timing Chain.
Unlike Timing Belts, Timing Chains will normally last the lifetime of the car. However, when it is time to change the Water Pump: it is a really great idea to change the Timing Chain and Camshaft and Crankshaft Sprockets, as you are in the vicinity and have already torn down everything already.
Professionally, but not officially, I like the 100,000 miles rule with Timing Chains.

Let me know if this helped, or if you have additional information or questions. Feel Free to contact me at FixYa.com!

2003 Nissan Maxima Timing Chain


You can wait its just fine, However if you ever start to notice oil leaking from front cover, then you will need to change. If there is no loss in power feel sluggish especially on take off, Its almost impossible for these type of chains to break. So enjoy until the wheel fall off..lol. good luck

2002 nissan maxima gle timing chain or sprockets


Ok, first off you need to take your vehicle to a Nissan dealer for a second opinion. Its not at all common to need a T-chain @ 58,000 miles unless you dont take care of your car and or you beating the snot out of it like it was stolen. What is the symptom? What caused it? When did it start? Second, this is not something an amature could/should do as it is very involved and there are alot of things you could potentially mess up. Third a new engine(long block), parts alone would run approx. 6-8 thousand dollars. A used engine could be an option and could run approx.1500-2500 dollars depending on mileage. Hope this helps and good luck.

No, it has a timing chain that will not require maintenance. Maybe he meant the external drive belts. They should be changed on schedule.
