Nissan hardbody 2.4 16v 2004 model have a ticking sound in cylinder head changed all the timing chains and guides. Please help I'm desperate

Hello Francois, the tapping sound you hear might be coming from a bad valve lifter, a bad camshaft lobe, a bent push rod, a broken valve spring, a broken rocker arm or the valves may need to be adjusted.

How do i straighten the chassis on my 2007 Nissan Hardbody 3000td pickup?

This needs to be done on a frame machine in an auto body shop. They have the means to realign the chassis to allow proper fit and alignment of parts. Any other means is inviting additional damage.

Hardbody 2003 user manual

Romeo, There are many different things that could be making this sound.
Lets start off with the simple stuff. A bad shock, shock rubber or Strut (similar to Shock) could be worn out and making noise as it moves to the end of it's travel.
The next thing is a front stabilizer ( roll Bar) bushings. The Stabilizer help control the roll from side to side while turning. This is a metal bar that runs from side to side under the front of the car and will have a set of rubber bushings that connect to either the lower control arms or the strut towers. If the bushing is gone or the bushing control rod is rusted or broken this will also make a noise when you hit a bump or pot hole.
The next possible option is that you have a bad ball joint. This could be a bad upper or lower ball joint. The ball joint is the ball and socket connection which holds the Spindle and tire onto the lower control arm. You can test this by lifting the care slightly with the jack, than place a large prybar under the tire, Prying upward and inward if there is any movement you should consider having the ball joints checked by a garage and replaced.
Lastly the lower control arm is mounted in rubber bushings. Although these bushing last for a long time and usually do not need replacing if you drive in an area with poor roads, or drive on gravel roads this will accelerate the end life of these bushings.
You should be able to remove the tire and visual inspect these bushings, They are at the connecting point of the Arm where it mounts to the K-Frame or sub frame of the car.
I recommend have your car taken to a service garage that has a hoist and have them visually inspect the front end. You can also just go to have your oil change and have the servicemen take a look generally for free to see if they see any lose or broken parts.
There are several other parts that could be causing the issue, including rocks stuck in the Front Springs, tie rod ends, or even a motor mount or transmission mount. So with all this said, If you have the ability to raise the car in a safe position (I suggest you use car ramps or jack stands) you can take some time to lift the front of the car and take a good look around.
Most of these parts a fairly inexpensive, but may be costly in labor to repair.
If you need more help please feel free to contact me.
Thanks for using

I want to replace lower ball joint on my nissan altima 2001

Remove the castle nut on top of the ball joint that secures the ball joint to the spindle. separate ball joint/lower control arm from spindle.Remove lower control arm bolt attatching control arm to subframe/engine cradle. Remove control arm. Replacement is recersal of the removal. Nissan/Infinity ball joints can not be pressed out or in. They are replaced with the whole new lower control arm as one (On most Nissan/ Infinity vehicles, although some exeptions apply. Hope this helps.
