How do I find out if my 2007 Nissan maxima has timing chain or belts?
2004-2008: SL; 6 Cyl 3.5L; "VQ35DE" -- timing chain.
all nissans since 2004 have chains
Most of the six cylinder models have had chains for many years. Our '98 Maxima has a chain. This isn't to say they can't break and, if they do and it's an older car, junk it unless you can't live without the old girl. You have to pull the engine to change it - big job. Luckily you rarely ever hear of one breaking; I've only ever heard of two in older Nissan sixes.
