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.

Hi.usually nissan cars use timing chain. it doesnt need to be replaced unless its noisy. but if your car uses a timing belt, the typical replacement period of a timing belt would be around 80 to 100 thousand kilometers.

SOURCE: how do I change the spark plugs of my 1996 nissan maxima

Using an Allen/Hex key tool, remove the cover to gain access to spark plug holes. This engine has coils at each plug, so after unplugging the electrical connection, you can use either a Phillips screwdriver or an 8mm socket on an extension to remove the 2 screws securing each coil. Pull out the coil and then use a 5/8" spark plug socket on a 6" extension to remove each spark plug. Gap the new plugs to .040" and apply anti-seize lubricant to the threads. Install each plug, slowly at first, so as not to cross-thread it. Torque the plugs to 18 lb/ft. Apply some dielectric grease to the inside of the spark plug boots and re-install the coils. Plug them all back in and re-install the covers. You're done!

SOURCE: does nissan maxima 2001 has a timing belt or chain

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!

Do i need to change my timing chain when i change my water pump on a 96 nissan maxima?


Not necessarily. You should at least consider it if you are close to a major service milestone (90k, 120k, etc.). It is a lot of work to change the timing chain (belt), but you have to do some of the work anyway to replace the water pump.

Whats the symptyms for the timeing belt to give out on a standard 96 nissan maxima


Runs terrible or won't start at all if it's broken. Shoot a timing light at your crank and if the mark jumps around, you timing belt is toast. It should saty almost in the same place all the time, unless you rev the engine.

Does the 1996 Nissian Maxium have a timing belt or timing chain?


Just about everything has a timing belt now days, because they are quite. A timing belt is a very important part of your car, it won't run without it, and in many cases if it breaks you will trash your engine in an instant. I'd change every time I change my other belts, I honestly believe that is a good rule of thumb, Your owners manual should tell you what the manufacturer recommends. I hope this helps, I do this for free, and I just want to help people.
