How can I tighten chain drive belt?


Chain belt? Don't think so. There is a timing chain and a timing belt. Timing chains on automobiles are generally non adjustable and are tensioned by a hydraulic tensioner and require no attention. Some timing belts are also tensioned by a hydraulic tensioner requiring no service. Some timing belts are also tensioned by a cam tensioner that can be adjusted but are rarely in need of servive unless the timing belt is being replaced

Timing chain replacement


Timing Chain and Gears REMOVAL & INSTALLATION 1.9L Engine NOTE: The following procedure requires the use of the puller tool No. J-25031 or equivalent, and timing sprocket installation tool No. J-26587 or equivalent.
  1. Remove the timing (front) cover from the engine.
  2. Lock the shoe on the automatic adjuster in fully retracted position by depressing the adjuster lock lever. NOTE: To remove the timing chain, it may be necessary to remove the camshaft sprocket. Before removing the timing chain, be sure to align the timing marks.
  3. Remove timing chain from crankshaft sprocket.
  4. Check the timing sprockets for wear or damage. If crankshaft sprocket must be replaced, remove the sprocket and the pinion gear from crankshaft using the puller tool No. J-25031 or equivalent.
  5. Check timing chain for wear or damage; replace as necessary. Measure distance "L'' (40 links) with the chain stretched with a pull of approximately 22 lbs. (98N). Standard "L'' value is 15 in. (381mm); replace chain if "L'' is greater than 15.16 in. (385mm).
  6. Remove the automatic chain adjuster-to-engine bolt and the adjuster.
  7. To check the operation of the automatic chain adjuster, push the shoe inwards, if it becomes locked, the adjuster is working properly. The adjuster assembly must be replaced if rack teeth are found to be worn excessively.
  8. To remove the chain tensioner, remove the "E'' clip and the tensioner. Check the tensioner for wear or damage; if necessary, replace it. Fig. 1: Timing chain guide and tensioner - 1.9L engine 85383285.gif

  9. Inspect the tensioner pin for wear or damage. If replacement is necessary, remove the pin from the cylinder block using a pair of locking pliers. Lubricate the NEW pin tensioner with clean engine oil. Start the pin into block, then place the tensioner over the appropriate pin. Position the E-clip onto the pin, then (using a hammer) tap it into the block until clip just clears tensioner. Check the tensioner and adjuster for freedom of rotation on the pins.
  10. Inspect the guide for wear or damage and plugged lower oil jet. If replacement or cleaning is necessary, remove the guide bolts, the guide and the oil jet. Install a new guide and upper attaching bolt. Install the lower oil jet and bolt, so that the oil port is pointed toward crankshaft. To install: Fig. 2: Timing chain alignment and installation - 1.9L engine 85383286.gif
    Fig. 3: Inspecting the timing chain for wear 85383287.gif

  11. Install the timing sprocket and the pinion gear (groove-side toward the front cover). Align the key groove with crankshaft key, then drive it into position using installation tool No. J-26587 or equivalent.
  12. Turn the crankshaft so that key is turned toward the cylinder head-side (No. 1 and No. 4 pistons at TDC).
  13. Install the timing chain, align the timing chain mark plate with the mark on the crankshaft timing sprocket. The side of the chain with the mark plate is on the front-side and the side of chain with the most links between mark plates is on the chain guide-side. Keep the timing chain engaged with the camshaft timing sprocket until the camshaft timing sprocket is installed on the camshaft.
  14. Install the camshaft timing sprocket so that it's marked-side faces forward and it's triangular mark aligns with the chain mark plate.
  15. Install the automatic chain adjuster.
  16. Release the lock by depressing the shoe on adjuster by hand, and check to make certain the chain is properly tensioned when the lock is released.
  17. Install the timing cover assembly.

4x4 transfercase chain slips under load.


It depends on what the stuff looked like . But yes a ten year old transfer case should have had all the wearing parts replaced. Maybe the whole case should have been replaced. But maybe it is adjusted wrong . Call anoyher garage to see if they can look at it.

Trying to put timing chain back after replacing head gasket on a Nissan N22 motor. Need to find adjustment to loosen timing chain so that i can attach timing gear with chain onto OH cam. can you help on...


no adjustment neccesary. There is a timing chain tensioner, which you will simply push back in to its body. once you do that, there should be a small hple somewhere on the body of the tensioner. That' sthere so you can piut a paper clip into it to keep the tensioner from coming out. Once you lock that in place you can remove the tensioner and than the timing chain.Once you get it all back together, just pull back on the pin and the tensioner will come out and put tension on the chain. good luck.
