Easy. Nissan almost always ran on timing chains esp the trucks. You will not have to worry abt changing the timing chain ( if ever ) to usually at least 250,000 or 300,000. I seldomly have heard on anyone changing them though.

Is there a way to check the timing chain without removing the cover ( this is quite a job) for a look at the timing marks


no way of doing so. need to remove cover. i have been doing this since 1996 and have never seen chain driven nissan jump timing. have seen some timing belt cars jump, but never chain driven engines. i think you have something else going on. i have done many and many timing chain jobs on frontiers and maximas, but not for a timing chain jumping issue. upper timing chain shoes wear out and engine gets noisy. i have to say i have seen some with the primary chain stretched a bit, but car still ran fine.

I 2005 nissan navara outlaw, there are 79500 miles on it, at how many miles does the timing chain need serviced or changed?


It is usually the timing chain tensioner that malfunctions. However if you have a timing BELT it should be replaced between 75-80k miles.

A chain driven system will typically outlast the engine itself if everything is in a good order.

However there was a recall on some frontier engine's timing parts, you may want to have your VIN checked at a local dealer to ensure your engine doesn't qualify for the TSB repair.

I don't find any reference to changing a timing belt or chain on my 3.0L 2005 Escape XLT. Please clarify need to change belt or chain (which?).


twin chains. no need to change. timing belts are the ones that need to be changed sometimes as often as 40,000miles/60,000km!
Good luck!

2002 Nissan Frontier timing belt


Timing belts are found on the 3.3L engines, timing chains are on the 2.4L engines. The 2002 3.3L Timing belt is changed at 105K during the major service. This service can run over one thousand dollars. It is recommended to replace the belt, tensioner and idlers, cam and crank seals, water pump, and both belts when changing the timing belt. That way, you only open up the front of the engine every 105K. Why change the timing belt and have a water pump start leaking only 20K later and ruin the belt with antifreeze? Other items during the 105K are a major tune up with all the fluids changed and a lube. This does get expensive. You can break it up into several blocks of time and spread the related service items out over a few months to take some of the sting off.
