You may want to check all of you engine mouting bolts to make sure they are torqued correctly. As to the shafts and chain they are really only replaced when out of limits. I would be very surprised if they were out of limits and the only problem. While I have not seen every 88B motor....we rebuild them and most often don't replace those items. Hope this helps.

2006 nissan altima 2.5 balance shaft assembly timing


Before I replaced the balance shaft assembly chain on my 2004, the marks on the chain weren't lined up with the marks on the sprocket. When I installed the new chain, I just lined up the marks. (Had to rotate balance shaft independent of crankshaft to do this) Wasn't any noticeable vibration before or after, not really sure why the marks weren't lined up before.
Hope this helps.

Pathfinder vibration


check the "u" joints for looseness and wear especially the front drive shaft . check sliding splines . The vibration is a harmonic vibration normally associated with worn "U" joints --bent or out of balanced ---worn /seizing slip joints or being excited by a failing drive thrust bearing in the diff. ( big bearing directly behind the pinion gear that takes all the load on drive) check the magnet on the diff drain plug for metal bits.

I have a 2008 Nissan Altima 2.5SL. It has a strong vibration around 1800RPM. I have had the all motor and transmission mounts checked, transaxle assembly and the transmission replaced (under warranty) with...


the book shows it as a v9 3.5 l with a chain drive years 2002-2012
there is also an altima 2.4 l 1993-2001 another chain driven engine
both have balance shafts
If the chain has been replaced lately , it could be an improperly fitment of the balance shaft
If not I suspect that it could be a worn chain that needs replacing and the vibration is coming from lack of chain tension
the book does not show ant belt driven engines with a balance shaft
at this point I would take it to an accredited professional service center with experience on your engine and have a proper diagnosis done and quote
a new engine is the last thing I would be talking about

Hi, Mark and the usual suspects are:
1. Wheels and or tires worn or damaged.
2. Engine/transmission/vehicle not aligned properly.
3. Primary chain is badly worn or links too tight as a result of insufficient lubrication or misalignment.
4. Engine to transmission mounting bolts loose.
5. Upper engine mounting bracket loose.
6. Ignition timing incorrect due to a poorly tuned engine.
7. Internal engine problem flywheels have shifted.
8. Broken frame.
9. Stabilizer links worn or loose.

STOP the engine immediately !!! There is an oil pump failure of 2.0 TDI engines !
Remove the oil pan and the oil pump & balancer shafts assembly.

Either the shaft driving the pump from the balance shaft rounds off or the balance shaft drive gears eat themselves.
The same issue ... low oil pressure warning light, noisy rattling engine, and the turbo has gone. Diagnosis: oil pump balancer shaft assembly ...

Many 2.0 TDI engines show excess chain noise and wear anywhere from 50,000-100,000+ miles. Cars have broken the chains/tensioner as low as 65,000 miles. This is just a range of cars that have been reported, diagnosed, and repaired. The actual statistics on dealer repairs or failures is unknown and I've heard cars over 100,000 miles that, in my opinion as a non mechanic (most mechanics wouldn't recognize this sound and problem either), aren't noisy. From what has been reported, noticeable noise/chain-tensioner wear/greater risk of breaking is around 60,000-150,000 miles. Your case may vary. The most obvious symptom is a rattling loose noise from the oil pan. Unless you listen to a Passat TDI with a tight chain and one with a loose chain, it's hard to describe the difference other than rattling chain noise.
The reason the gear drive oil pump modification was started is because a few mechanics who specialize in TDI have seen many worn oil pump chains/sprockets/tensioners. There will always be a few defective parts that come off the assembly line and all mechanical components like chains wear out sooner or later, but in my opinion, the failure rate is abnormal considering the number of Passat TDI sold versus the number of reported oil pump failures. This does not necessarily mean that every or even most Passat TDI will have this problem, just that the reported failure rate is high enough to consider this part a design failure. Nobody, not even VW-Audi knows the average time between failure for these parts and the percentage of cars that will have this problem, but they changed this design and if you want to not have this specific failure, the only sure way is to swap to the geared module.
