Nissan Maxima Timing Belt Change Tutorial

When I changed the timing belt on my Maxima I took a lot of photos so I could create an online tutorial. The link below is the result of those efforts.

http://www.caraudiohelp.com/nissan_m...ange_tutorial/

I think I covered about everything but if you see anything that needs to be changed/added/modified let me know. I'm subscribed to this thread so I should get all of the replies.

The VG(SOHC) motor has a belt and the VE(DOHC) engine have a chain.

nice write up just a few tips from when I did mine:

If you don't have a impact wrench, and don't have a chain wrench to hold the crank you can pull the coil wire put the socket with the breaker bar on (set it to the frame) and kick the engine over with the starter to get it loose.

and mine didn't have marks on the cam sprocket but had little divots that were hard to see due to the angle you have, what I did is use a piece of chalk and run it over the edge of the sprocket then wipe lightly so that it leaves chalk in the divot.

just scanned down the page, looks pretty good. I like thumbnails that when clicked show much larger pics.

one problem: the part numbers listed are not true nissan part numbers. they are courtesy nissan stock numbers. at least, according to my local nissan, they are.(the timing belt may be a true part number.)

any tips for doing it w/o impact when the motor's on a stand w/o tranny? i tried putting a bolt thru the engine stand arm to the flywheel's mountbolt.... but i didn't put it in far enough and the bolt came out, ruined, and i don't have anymore bolts like that one. but if i go buy another one is that the best way w/o impact?

well while on a engine stand you could put 4 flywheel bolts in and use a bar between them and have someone hold that while you loosen it. maybe thats the best I can come up with at the moment I'll let you know if I think of anything else other then putting the flywheel on and using that to hang on to.

Does anyone know what the Nissan part numbers are or where I can find them? I threw away all of the boxes.

sucks to be you.
I keep skipping over VGs because no one will show me proof of a timing belt being done.
I'll just have to keep waiting for a VE.

Very cool! Thanks for taking the time and effort required to put this together. This should help others in the future who are considering this.

OE didn't use a gasket at the factory.
All those Prices are LIST. 20% off is fairly typical for a discount, assuming the dealer knows you.

o.. just that blue crap then?

yea the dealer dude near me likes me. we chat about how the versa sucks, trying to figure out what the 09 maxima stole lines from, and how sexy the GTR is. so he was gonna give me like 30something% off on a sensor (from 35ish to 25ish)

I think mine came with one from autozone or checkers (it was like 5 years ago) for my 87, i think it was just a paper one that you would do a nice bead of sealant (like blue if thats your flavor) on or just do the sealant just be sure to let it set before putting coolant in.

yea, my uncle installed my timing belt. the kit came with a gasket, but he just looked at it, tossed it aside, and pulled out some blue rtv.

It's also why I don't recommend just adding the kit all at once.

On any internal parts I would definitely use Nissan parts. If an alternator belt breaks it isn't a big deal but if the timing belt snaps your engine is fubar.

wait soo if it doesn't matter what brand in terms of not breaking prematurely why is an aftermarket tbelt a bad idea? or just the tensioner and crap should be OEM?

it's not a bad idea, you just need to be careful because of tolerances and some are not marked for timing.

Good point. If you do buy a non-OEM belt be sure to mark it like the factory belt is.

Gates belts seem good. They come marked and a lifetime warranty. Does that mean I don't need to change in 60k more miles? just kidding. I wonder if I can send it back for a replacement when it's time to change

You still need to buy and change it at the recommended intervals. The warranty is against defect in workmanship, not wearing out in it's normal lifespan.

It's not really "FUBAR", but it is definitely "FU"

Did I not hear or see something somewhere that there is a higher replacement interval from Nissan than the originally recommended 60K? I thought it was either due to an improved OEM belt since the "old days" of 1994 and earlier, or simply years of experience by Nissan that a higher mileage interval is still considered safe. An extra year or so in between changes would be nice.

I've been wrong before.

Does anyone know roughly what miles the belts tend to start to go on the VG? No- I don't want to push mine to the nail-biting edge- I'm just curious.

new belt tooth profile made the new belt a little thicker for 1994.

Has the change interval been revised from the 60k because of the new belt? It's hard to believe Nissan would recommend fewer service intervals but I've gotten 70k out of both of my previous belts.

you can also get 5K out of an oil change, but it doesnt make it right. I would rather lean on the cautious side and just change everything on schedule, than hope it would be okay for a little longer.

Just wondering. I know different cars have different intervals for whatever reason. My Celica got 101K from the original and ~89k from probably an aftermarket belt. My GF's 02(?) Millenia with the 2.5L says change by 105K in the book.
