Timing chain question

10932 Views 13 Replies 6 Participants Last post by  rdrfronty
My first question is do you need to replace the top chain guide? I ordered a kit and the guide that sits on-top between the 2 cams isnt in the kit. Dont wanna get it torn down and not have all the parts i need. Also, is it necessary to take the oilpans off if i can blow them out with compressed air? assuming the only reason that you take them off is because water from the water pump might leak in there. I am doing this on Sat so i wanna make sure i got everything together. thanks

Replace them all incuding the water pump. And alot of water goes into the pan. I would pull it cause it has a sperate sump you cannot access, but then you can always check with a nissan tech to see what they can get away with not having to do. Theres alot of stuff that a manual says to do, but is not neccessary
