The book that I have breaks down for belts and doesn't list a chain at all.

Does it have timing belt or chain


Both the 1.8 and 2.5 have chains. After the xterria 2003 all nissans have chain camshaft drives. Last sedan with belt was the 1994 Maxima

Lots of images of Timing chain kits here

DOES A 2002 NISSAN ALTIMA HAS A TIMING BELT


No timing belt. your Altima has a timing chain. No service necessary unless the chain is stretched out. I have seen just a hand full of those since they came out, so you should be safe. You will get the check engine light to come on with the p0335 cam position sensor to come on in few cases that I have seen and it was a stretch chain. other than that no real issues with timing chains.

Timing belt replacement millage


The Nissan Altima does not use a timing belt, it uses a chain driven camshaft, timing chains have no set mileage and should last the life of the engine.

Do 1994 Nissan 4 cylinders need a new timing belt at 90,000 to100,000 Miles??


Your Nissan does not have an interference engine, meaning when the belt breaks it will not ruin your engine. In fact Gates hose and belts doesn't even list a timing belt for that engine which makes me think that you have a timing chain instead. Timing chains seldom break so unless your having some issue that make you think it needs replacing I would just drive it.

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

When to change timing belt on 1996 nissan maxima


Maximas had a timig belt until 1994. Some Maximas from 1992-1994 had chains also, but only the VE30DE models. All VG30 models had timing belt. Since 1995 all maximas (A32, A33, A34 the all new A35) have timing chains and the rarely/never fail. In fact in my 12+ years with nissan, I have't seen/replaced single timing chain in a Maxima, so pretty bullet proof setup and I have had few of those cars and have one right now. Awesome cars, by the way, just keep up with the oil changes and it will run forever. One of my Maximas had 245000 miles, when I was selling it and I still see it on the road here and there. BULLET PROOF engines.

'94 Nissan Altima rattles


Hi there,
you will need new upper timing chain and sprockets. Common problem on altima your year. Nissan has TSB for it. First they had us remove the upper timing chain guide, but after that, they had us replace all top chain components.
