Well First off Toyota, Nissan and most Japanese Domestic Market Vehicles are not interference motors repeat NOT INTERFERENCE MOTORS, I work at a Toyota/Scion Dealer and i just so happen to be 1 of 6 other master techs that work there i think i know my ****, so A dont by a haynes or chilton waste of money and very uninformative if your going to dish out the money for a chilton then why not go down to your dealer, go over to parts, and say hey i want to order a dealer service manual for my car normally they range from 15 to 35 bucks. Second the nissan altima if im not mistaken has the KA24DE I4 DOHC engine and that would be timing chain my friend with 2 balance shafts, that is something i dont recommend for the uneducated that is a very very tedious process. Trust me you can go to about any nissan forum on the web and they will all tell you KA24DE has a TIMING CHAIN with 2 balance shafts because of being a Dual Overhead Cam Engine. If you think its your timing that's off you might want to reconsider it being something else or you will more than likely find yourself purchasing a new car real soon hope that this will inform you to not attempt to put a timing belt on a non interference motor that has a timing chain with two balanceshafts.

    And second why must you need to replace your motor mounts that again is something that is going to require alot of shop equipment and time or just one large large headache, but motor mounts if your getting new ones the old ones will have to be pressed out by a shop they are sealed in there very tight. Second most Japanese Vehicles have 4 mounts 2 motor and 2 transmission. So your going to need something like an engine crane to suspend that motor and transmission while you have the old mounts pressed out. All i can say is good luck

First I recommend getting a repair manual from AutoZone, O'Reilly's or NAPA.

Chilton and Hayes both have very good coverage of these proceedures.

The first question that I have for you is did the belt break or is it just a maintenance issue?

If it's maintenance then the procedure will go pretty smooth, on the other hand if it broke then you may be looking at some valve replacement.

In almost all cases when timing belts break they bend one or more valves. Nissan, Mitsu, Toyota are all bad about that. They love those interference motors.

Contact me if you need more assistance

This is to 08TurbotC.....while it's nice you answered someone's question....who the hell cares if you're a "master tech".....and what's with this attitude of yours..."just so happen to be"...again..who cares!!?? All that proves is that you can pass a test. If I was to "toot MY horn", I'd say I'm an ASE Master tech with BOTH Advanced Level Performance certifications, I'm also a Ford Senior Master Tech and a Chrysler/Dodge Master Tech......who cares, right?? Certifications mean nothing. Knowledge and ability mean EVERYTHING. I know alot of "shadetree" guys that would run circles around you with ease and they have NO ASE's at all. So, don't make urself out to be a bigshot....no one cares. It's nice when u can help someone out but there is no need for "I think I know my ****" stuff. Oh...and by the way.....there ARE certain Nissan motors that ARE IN FACT interference motors...same with Subaru, which is also Japanese, so get ur facts straight before you give out misinformation.

94 altima power window problem


Well, it sounds like the window motor is drawing too much current. The window motor may not be any good. But before condeming motor, grease the window channels with a silicone base spray and make sure window moves up and down easy without much resistanse. If thats ok, then replace the window motor/regulator assembly.

94 saab v6 serp belt replacement. does motor mount


Yes, the motor mount must come off to replace the serpentine belt on the 3.0 6 cylinder motors. Not as daunting a task as it may seem, just requires a jack and block of wood under the oil pan to support the motor.

Timing belt 1994 nissan altima


most timing belts go much longer. i am asuming the dealer recommends it or you probably wouldn't ask.it is not an easy or cheap job. i am a big fan of if it ain't broke don't fix it. my truck has almost 200k with the original on...some motors are damaged when the timing belt breaks..ask your dealer why it is recommended and go from there..Good luck

Its a '94 so engine or tranny mounts are a strong possibility...
You would need to seek the help of a mechanic to replace them.

When you turn on your headlights are they dim or bright? does your car drive? if not your Alternator is either shot or the belt is off and you are running off your battery.
