Question about 1995 Nissan Maxima

1 Answer

I have 1995 Nissan Maxima. On the crank pulley

I have 1995 Nissan Maxima. On the crank pulley there's 2 marks close together and one mark not far from it. Which mark is top dead center?
This is my third time taking it down. It keeps on skipping. The first time 2 cylinders were skipping (#2 and #3). I took it back down. Then the second time one cylinder (#5) is skipping. Any suggestions?

V6 engines (VG30) renowned for breaking exhaust manifold studs. As to the pulley marks, looking at the engine from the pulley side, as the pulley rotates clockwise, the first mark up is TDC, the second is the timing mark for when the engine is running and you are using a strobe light.

SOURCE: Can't fine an arrow to line up timing marks.

Hi. The older style engines had a metal arrow on the front timing cover. The newer ones may have a small raised area on the timing cover. It might be best to spray the area down with a can of brake kleen and then wipe the area down with a rag.

If your belt came with marks, then they should match the marks that are on the sprockets and block, if not, you must have the cam marks align with those on the engine. If you're in doubt about the exact spot, lay a tooth pick across the sprockets so that you can check alignment to the block.

How do I set the egn. Timming on a 2001 Nissan 1400 LDV. There are no marks on the pulley


check for a small v cut into the rear edge of the pulley flange
remove a plug for no1 cylinder and bring the piston up on compression stroke ( use your finder in the plug hole to feel compression
now use a piece of wire in the plug hole to feel the piston come up to the tdc position
put a mark on the timing cover opposite the groove
now turn the crank backwards until you have about 10 degrees before TDC
Now if you cannot find the small groove when the piston is at TDC make a mark on the pulley and on the houising
the move the crank back until the mark on the pulley is about 10 degrees BTDC
10 degrees is about 1/2"

Can some one show me timeing mark on 1997 nissan maxima please


wow a Nissan Camry.
what engine, ??????????
what are you doing, we dont know. so..
cam marks? chain marks?
spark timing?

in 1997, most cars have 6 or more marks.

Nissan V6? is it (guessing i am)
if doing major cam work , you will need far more that just mark data.

if doing serious work, i recommend the below
  1. a real FSM, from NISSAN if Nissan.
  2. alldata.com
warning:1
all nissan engines are All Interference
so doing cam work or finding engine dead,
do a leak down test by hand before cranking engine
or bend the valves.
after replacing chain, do a cyl. leak down test (a tool)
and if it fails, the valves were bent, do not crank engine
or the damage WILL cascade $$$$$$$$$$$$$$

My nissan maxima will not start


Check timing belt. Shoot a timing light down at your crank. If the timing mark jumps around bad, your belt has slipped.

Timming


Dear invisible148: I don't know which timing marks it is you are looking for, so I will supply you with several.
The timing marks on the crankshaft pulley which the belt ride on, are "NOTCHES" which have been made on to the top edge of the pulley inside shiv. They are in 5 degree increments. The timing cover has a fixed metal tab shaped like a pointer which sits relatively close to the top of the pulley.
The timing marks for the cam gears and the crank gear are small dots which were stamped on the very edge of the cam gears close to where the belt teeth mesh with the gear. The crank gear has a dot stamped on it, close to the edge of one of the teeth where it too meshes with the timing belt.
I hope I have answered your question.
