*

So i think there has actually been part miscommunication in between the male who sold me my truck ("99 Frontier KC 4x4 v 127k), his dealer, me, and my mechanic. According to the initial dealer and also the guy who marketed me the truck, it has a time chain the "never" requirements to it is in replaced. According to a lot of the forum posts, some of the first gens have actually timing belts and also some have actually chains. Follow to mine mechanic, mine truck has a timing belt that has actually never been replaced that I should probably acquire done for $750. My concern is, when did Nissan switch the Frontiers to time chains? i think the brand-new ones have chains, yet did all the an initial gens have actually belts? Or just particular years? i don"t desire my mechanic pulling personal the engine to discover out the nothing needs to it is in done.

whoever told you the chains dont ever before need to it is in replaced should be shooting in the arse with rocksalt. Simply look at any type of number of 2nd gen trucks, mine consisted of after just 32000 miles. I recognize thats a various situation yet still. Anyway, if it is indeed a belt i would go ahead and have that swapped out. Yet 750 bucks sounds choose alot the cash. Room you not mechanically inclined? it should be a reasonably easy job. An ext time consuming 보다 anything. If its a chain, i will not ~ hurt to get it looked at ns suppose.

if her truck is a first gen v a v6 then you have actually a belt and you should definitely get it readjusted soon if she a 4cyl. I think you have a chain, but dont host me come it
six cylinder is a belt, four cylinder is a chainthe chain will likely outlast the organization life the the vehicle. Belt needs adjusted asap

And I to be looking at this threadhttp://www.civicpride-kusatsu.net/forums/f46/timing-belt-3-3-v6-41630/and that looks prefer to carry out the timing every that needs to be excellent is to heat up all of the gears to their ideal marks.

Absolutely whenever friend can, ns buy and sell a lot of older BMW"s and also the an initial thing I perform on castle is belt, tensioner, water pump, also if i get any kind of organization records. Cheap Insurance!
chains dont need changing. Whoever told you they didnt should be changed is correct. Guides, tensioners, require changing. However chains because that the most part, is a far better move. You have to only require to resolve it approximately every 100k. Yet nissan ****ed up a tiny on the 2nd gens.this is why i prefer push rod.
My mechanic just guessed that the belt needed an altering because there were no telltale indicators that anything had been functioned on. The bolts weren"t scratched and also the clips ~ above the hoses in the area look like they have never been removed. That did tell me there"s no way to tell, however from the look at of it it hadn"t been.Does the tensioner absolutely need to be replaced? What is connected with this?
it deff has a belt. I replaced mine in ~ 100,000. Time consuming but not really difficult. I think their a rite increase on here. Great luck

I have a timing belt top top mine (2000 v a 3.3 V6). Just had it changed on mine. However it wast quick enough. About 2 weeks ago i had the belt rest while ns was driving. Ns was lucky sufficient that nothing happen, and also nothing damaged or was bent. Acquiring charged $750 for just the belt is crazy. I had mine done for $650, yet they additionally replaced the water pump and also all the serpentine belts together well.

there is one complicated part. The bolt top top the crank shaft have the right to be a bear come break loosened without one impact. The engine simply rotates otherwise..btw, ns think 99 was the critical year they offered a 4x4 with a 4 cyl.
