Timing chain. Normally they will last for at least 150,000 miles or longer. If it becomes noisy or car is hard to start, backfires, or performance is sub-par have it checked.

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.

2003 nissan xterra v-6 does it have a timing chain or belt and if it has a belt when does it need to be changed?


It has a timing belt, not a chain. Easy enough to check your owners manual. From memory, belt is to be replaced at about 100,000 miles or 160,000 km give or take.

the chain could be worn - check it before you suspect anything else... dont go off the mileage - lots of things can make a chain or belt wear prematurely, have it checked to be on the safe side.

Try cleaning the area around the timing chain of all grime and oil, and re-oil the timing chain with the reccomended lubricant.

Does a 1999 nissan altima gxe have a timing belt or a timing chain and if it does have a chain does it have to be replaced as often as a belt?


I think it has a chain. look where the timing chain/ belt should be. if there is a large plastic cover, it has a belt, it its a aluminum cover, it has a chain. there is no replacement interval on a chain.

That's a load of **** they are feeding you.The timing chain tentioner has a fault and not tentioning the chian.I think you have done a good thing keeping it on synthetic oil.That causes less wear on moving parts than other oils.
