When do you replace a Nissan Xterra timing chain?
you should never have to replace the chain. not impossible but rare that this has to ever be replaced. if it is a 2000 to 2003 model with a 3.3l v6 it has a timing belt which needs to be replaced every 105000 miles.

just behind the blower motor under the passanger side dash is a plug that is the risistor. two screws hold it in place. just remove the two screws and pull out. xterraparts.com has themm for about $19.. Xterraparts.com has pictures of the part and a diagram. In the diagram, the front arrow is pointing to the cabin not the front of the car. Follow the four blue and white wires from the blower motor to the blower motor resistor.
I believe the knock sensor is under the intake manifold requiring it's removal. I have not been able to verify this yet. If that's the case, be prepared to get giggy with this engine. It's not an easy, logical design, so you might want to take care of some things while you're in deep. For example, the manual calls for the timimg belt to be replaced at 120,000 miles (if memory serves) so you may as well tackle that also. Xterra Haynes manuals are few and far between. I strongly suggest acquiring either the Haynes or a FSM before getting giggy with this engine. C.W. Eureka! We sucessfully did it another way and saved about $500. (est. from a mechanic to replace with me buying the part.) Go through the front of the engine. We were replacing the time belt etc. anyway.... I have photos showing the 'impossible' too. We were told that the knock sensor wasnt that big a deal that the truck would still be ok if that was not changed. What we did change was the crankshaft position sensor that was bad. But we are still having the same problem as before when the engine gets hot it wants to cuts out. Would the knock cause that sort of problem?
It has a timing chain. Normally they will last for at least 150,000 miles or longer. If it becomes noisy or car is hard to start, backfires, or performance is sub-par have it checked.
take off all accessories such as alt, power steering then motor mounts on pass side and underneath. take off valve cover there are 2 or 4 bolts in pass side of head drop oil pan take off oil pump pickup tube then timing cover. be sure before u start #1 cyl is at tdc on compression stroke. and thatshould be it.
Answer . You have to take off the valve cover oil pan lift up the engine remove tran and engine mount water pump alt power steering and other then that its simple
Answer . \nReplace it when the engine needs a complete overhaul, if the chain becomes noisy, or if you are unable to keep the engine timed. Normally they last well over 100,000 miles.
Answer its a timin belt ,should be replace at 60,000 its for your own good Yes, nissans were the first of the Japanese manufacturers to make every vehicle in their lineup with a timing chain. Answer!! My dad says most likely a timimng belt. This is correct per the Nissan 2000 Xterra owner's manual, page10-9. The 4 cylinder engine has a timing chain. Nissan V6 engines have a belt, which should be replaced at around 105,000 miles. The 4 cylinders have a chain.
You'll need a wiper arm puller, pretty easy takes less than 5 mins to pull.
This is detailed in the Maintenence and Do-it-yourself section of your owners manual. Owners manuals can also be viewed online from Nissan. The cabin air filter is behind the glove box. The glove box must be opened while pressing both sides in until it hangs down completely. Remove the filter cover bolt and then the filters. Replace the filters(two come with each set). Replace cover and glove box. \n. \nGo to this site to purchase the filters and/or to read about how to replace them. http://www.xterraparts.com/Merchant2/merchant.mvc?Screen=PROD&Store_Code=Xterra&Product_Code=B7200-00001

There are about eight and a half hours labor involved withreplacing a timing chain on a Nissan Micra. The total costincluding parts to replace the part is roughly $2,500.
On my 2002 Nissan Xterra I had to remove 4 screws from the front bumper and wheel well and then I was able to get to the back side of the side marker light and remove the nut in order to get to the light bulb. i don't need to change just the bulb. The entire light assembly must be replaced. The reflector is broken. i cannot get wires to release.
I'm not sure about yours but we used to set them, bottom one straight up and top one straight down.
It's probably a original equipment one piece unit still (extension, Muffler & tailpipe). To replace the 3 pieces will probably be between $250.00-$400.00 depending on supplier.
You have to take off the tire first then there are bolts that go around the hub take those off and inside are serviceable wheel bearings . Be careful because there are 3 different bearings inside and you have to reassemble in the new rotor. I would recommend taking it to a garage and haveing them do it if your not too sure on what your doing. Its a tricky process and takes appoximatley 10 mins per wheel if you know what your doing.
If its the 3.3L with supercharger, it has a timing belt.. Manual says to change at 105k. But did mine at 82k, had the money and time, so might as well. Did the water pump as well since i was in the neighborhood.
1. Pop off soft vinyl arm rest with flat screwdriver. 2. Remove screw in hard armrest and pop it off. 3. Remove two panel screws behind arm rests. 4. Remove screw behind door handle and pop off the trim piece. 5. Pop out the pin clip in upper front corner of panel. 6. Pull the clip off the window crank handle shaft, between handle and plastic protector washer, with a small j-hook wire. Remove crank handle. 7. Pop out edges of door panel, lift and remove. Easy! Don't muck up the plastic parts. . Try to use the Nissan speaker adapters plugs so you don't need to cut wires and mess up the electric system, you can get those from eBay or amazon.
timing belt replacement is recommended every 5 years or 100,000 miles whichever comes first. Dealers might also recommend replacing your water pump, thermostat, and tensioner.. That engine has two chains. Top to Cam. Bottom to crank... I would think both were fine. but when in Doge I would tensioner(s). given that the top chain guide was removed.. (service Bult.). John H.. .. eom..
Open the hood and look at the back of the headlight housing. Lift the wire clip up and back (toward the engine) to release the bulb assembly. Remove the wiring harness from the base of the bulb and plug in the new one. DO NOT TOUCH THE BULB with your finger as it will cause it to burn out quickly.
if you look under the hood the wiper motor is fastened to the fire wall you will know it is the motor when you follow the wiper pivoting arm which is attached to the wiper motor after installing new motor wiper arms will need to be adjusted they will have to come off anyway prior to removing motor they are connected with one nut on a spline shaft . might sound difficult but really isn't .
Take of the bracket with the pulley. Should be two bolts on the right and a nut on the left. Loosen the three bolts for the thermostat cover. Remove the cover take out the thermostat. Reapply sealant to the cover add new thermostat and reinstall bolts. Your done. That easy. Should take about an hour to complete.
to change plugs on driver side remove 10 screw on coil cap, remove all three coil cap and use plug socket and ratchet to remove plugs and replace them. to replace plugs on passenger side,remove intake manifold cover by removing all 10 screws and nut on it and also all attachment on sides of manifold for easy lifting.remove all three srews on coil cap,remove coil caps and replace plugs like above.I just replaced a clients plugs for the 2005 Nissan exterra.
The cost to replace a timing belt can vary from $60 to $200+. Thecost depends on shop prices if it will be done in a shop, the brandand price of the belt.
I am having trouble getting getting this Nissan timing chain in time so the engine will run correctly. I have checked all other avenues and I know its the chain that is causing my issues. I need techniques and diagrams if at all possible, Thank you for any and all help. JB Go to rynoauto . com
If it is a 2000 to 2003 model with a 3.3 V6 it is a belt. You should replace it around 105000 miles.
...The 2005 model is the 1st of the gen-2's and therefore has a chain in the v6, previous models; considered gen-1's and had a belt...
It's under the drivers side just above the transmission. I can get to mine from the front of the vehicle, see it when I am changing the oil. Disconnect the negative cable from the battery, jack up the vehicle, if you don't fit underneath it, and then start undoing bolts. There's two wire connections, one from the battery, one from the solenoid and then there are two mounting bolts, there location depends on engine size. Reverse above for installation, finally re-connecting the negative cable.
The answer to this question depends on the year of the Nissan Xterra. . 2005 and newer have a special 12" rear wiper blade that fits the special rear arm. You can go to your dealer (which may be expensive) or you can look into 'Trico Exact Fit Rear Integral Blades' that snap right onto the special arm and look just like the factory original. They're available online. Note that just because its a special arm, does not mean its hard to change. . 2004-2004 Nissan Xterra's take a 14" rear wiper blade. If you have the 2000-2004, there are many options available - I use 'Trico Tech Beam Blades' which are fantastic. They are the frameless beam blades and do not clog-up with ice or snow as much as conventional wipers on the rear (on on the front for that matter)
yes...the 2nd generation xterra's have a chain...the timing 'belt' is highly suggested to be changed along w/ a few gaskets and the water pump @105K...experts agree, anything over the 105 mark is considered 'borrowed time', since the extent of possible damage with a broken belt can add up to a full long-block engine replacement...as well as the water-pump!...kindest regards.... I still think the best car ever made...was the Porshe 356...however, for those who can't spend quite so much...the 1964 vw beetle or 67 karmann ghia are the best cars around, interms of reliability, simplicity and style...the beetle is the only car that has never has a flat surface...every piece of metal is curved or rounded...
remove the pedal arm pin so that you can freely move the pedal and have an access to the rubber stopper slots.
a dealer charges around $1400 to replace it along with the water pump, spark plugs, plug wires, distibutor cap and rotor button.
if it is the v6 it has a belt not chain that needs replacing every 105000 miles
Only if it needs it but if you wanna go right ahead! It won't hurt
2000 Nissan xterra sidemarker light bulb replacement: Purchase the correct replacement bulb(s) first, before disassembling the vehicle. See sources and related links below for replacement bulb information. Then consult your owner's manual for the replacement procedure. As simple as it sounds, the owner's manual is the best place to start for bulb replacement instructions and illustrations. You may want to consider replacing both left and right at the same time in order to keep brightness and color equal (optional).
Replacing the passenger side mirror on the Nissan Xterra involves prying the housing cover loose to expose the fastener. Gently popping out the mirror assembly and disconnecting the power connections. Now reconnection and attachment can be done.
Yes , it must have a timing CHAIN ( the Gates website does not list a timing belt for the 2004 Nissan Xterra 2.4 liter )
A remanufactured starter is about $160 (w/o $40 core refund) plus 1-1 1/2 hrs of pro labor @ $100, so about $300 avg. If you have some tools (socket set and small enough hands) or know a friend who's handy and willing to spend 2-3 hrs getting the part and swapping them out, it'll cost about $120.
The 2010 Nissan Xterra takes a 24" drivers side, 18" passenger side and a fairly specialized 12" rear wiper that is difficult to find in the stores. See sources and related links below for more information. Since there are currently over 22 different wiper arm attachments, do not buy wipers just by length only - be sure to lookup exact wiper blade part numbers by vehicle make, model and year for the brand wiper you decide to purchase. This ensures correct length AND correct attachment.
When the engine is overhauled as it is designed to normally last the life of the engine.
Normally it will last the life of the engine and is replaced when the engine is overhauled.
The 3.3 Liter V6 has a timing belt that must be changed every 105,000 miles. Warning: This is an interference engine. If the belt breaks you will have serious internal engine damage.
It should be no different than before. Just start it up. If it want start make sure the cables are tight. If this doesn't help you got other problems.
It is extremely easy and simple to replace your center caps on the Nissan Xterra... --- the center caps are held in place by a series of spring clips... --- using a long screw driver and a rag (to protect your wheel), gently pry the center cap off...by moving around the circumference of the center cap with a prying motion. --- reinstall the center cap by "snapping" it back in place...double check to make sure you have snapped it back in place securely.
Usually never. The chain is the designed to last the life of the engine and is normally replaced during a complete engine rebuild.
To my knowledge the Nissan Quest does not use a timing chain, it uses a timing belt, with a replacement interval of 105,000 miles.
Not unless it is worn out. Timing chains are designed to last the life of the engine and are normally replaced during complete engine overhaul.
Under normal circumstances no , the chain normally needs no replacement. It is designed to last the life of the engine and is replaced during a complete engine rebuild.
Replace the belt every 105,000 miles or every 10 years whichever comes first. Warning: This is an interference engine. .
Timing chains are designed to last the life of the engine and arenormally replaced during a complete engine rebuild. If you changeyour oil/filter as recommended by the manufactrue you will not needto change it. If your 2008 Nissan Altima needs a new chain then youeither have neglected the oil changes or there was a factorydefect. Talk to your Nissan dealer about warranty service on this.
