Question about 1992 Nissan Maxima
There were 2 engines used. The VG30E(GXE version) and the VE30DE(on the 92-94 SE versions). The VG30E has a timing belt and the VE30DE has a timing chain.

it has a chain, generaly they dont break but the chain guides do come apart they are plastic,its a big job to remove the chain cover.

these engines have a timing belt and should be changed every 60,000 miles.

Testimonial: "This verified other info I had received, even though most parts houses only listed timing chains."
For the 2001 Nissan Maxima 3.0L SFI DOHC V6:
It has a Timing Chain.
Unlike Timing Belts, Timing Chains will normally last the lifetime of the car. However, when it is time to change the Water Pump: it is a really great idea to change the Timing Chain and Camshaft and Crankshaft Sprockets, as you are in the vicinity and have already torn down everything already.
Professionally, but not officially, I like the 100,000 miles rule with Timing Chains.
