Default Timing Chain supplier reviews

Apparently I need to replace my timing chain any reviews on parts available or suggestions for part suppliers.

One reviewer says it lasted 2200 miles and snap. My choice is Cloyes. I have installed Cloyes timing chain guides 50k miles ago, no issues. Try rockauto.com

Cloyes is a reputable brand. I've heard mixed reviews about DNJ. You could go with genuine Nissan parts; I use CourtesyParts.com or NissanPartsDepot.com. I'm assuming you are replacing the timing chain because of the upper timing chain noise issue? If so, you really don't need a full timing set; only the parts on the service bulletin NTB07-042c. You can download a copy of it from our knowledge base:

http://x.nissanhelp.com/forums/local...pp=10&keyid=43

One recommendation I would make is that instead of using the ThreeBond sealant mentioned in the bulletin, get Permatex #82195 Ultra Grey Rigid High Torque sealant. Most auto part stores carry it and you use it with a caulk gun (there is a lot of RTV sealant to be put down!). Also, remember that the timing sets on the aftermarket don't comes with the seals; you'll still have to get them. I would also replace the water pump and thermostat while you are there. You can get a Hitachi or Aisin water pump (both OE suppliers to Nissan) for half the price of a Nissan pump at Rockauto.

Yes 120xxx miles, regular oil changes, occasional noise so if I am going to open it up I was just going to change it all.....including water pump.

Well just completed the repair. Wow what a job. I found one secondary guide worn down and the primary chain guide broken and of course slid down extending the tensioner. So much of the assembly was a struggle. Now on too phase two, new 02 sensors, plugs and coil packs.

Hi [MENTION=247026]vmusch[/MENTION],

Can you tell us what the hardest parts of the disassembly or install were? There's several YouTube videos out there showing us what the insides look like, but I can't find any that talk about the actual disassembly to get to the chains. Would love to get your insight before taking this on.
Thanks!

Default Quest timing chains....

Well honestly not a bad job at all. Follow the videos and check and double check assembly. Only mistake I made was during assembly one of the cover bolts must be put on with the cover, I didn't so I had to drill a hole to make room to install the bolt. Of all my jobs this one does not and did not seem difficult.......it is time consuming.
