60-80,000 miles is a great benchmark for ANY vehicle. nissan recomends 105,000 miles which seems a little excessive to me. be careful because this engine is listed as an interference motor and WILL cause internal engine damage if it was to break.
how many miles? it could be the timing belt. some engines will destroy valves, etc. when the T-belt breaks. that is why the mfg. insists you change it between 60-90k miles. i'm not sure if nissan is one of those that causes major problems to the engine when the belt goes? better safe than sorry, change @ the recommended interval. good day.
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.
DONT BUY IT. There is more than the timing belt that is wrong with it. Some dealers do that **** just to make a quick buck. I dont like it. Sorry to inform you, but if they dont know how to change a timing belt, or know when it needs to be changed, they dont need to be in business. Sorry to be so blunt but I try to be as honest as I can.
quite lengthy if you try it, take pictures of critical disassembly points rate me fixya!...I really can't change the belt for you! Let me know if you need to read this more clearly...don't forget to enable WINDOWS MAGNIFIER to help read!
