Question about 1995 Nissan Maxima
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.

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.
