What parts do I need to replace when doing the timing chain in a 2000 Nissan Altima?


Asked by Jul 14, 2016 at 01:42 AM about the 2000 Nissan Altima GXE

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I'm about to replace timing chain and need to know all what parts I will need along the way to avoid back and forth to parts store while in the middle of doing it.

Ask the parts store! Oil, filter, sealer... etc. Kit contains the following: upper & lower timing chains, 2 cam sprockets, crank sprocket, left and right guides for lower chain, upper and lower chain tensioners, front crank seal, and timing cover seals (1 for Altima ). Timing cover gaskets are not used on this appplication; use the appropriate liquid gasket sealant instead. Also available (but not included in the kit) are the idler sprocket and special chain guide bolt (order separately if needed for your engine).
