How to Change the Timing Chain in a 1997 Nissan Altima

Detailed instructions for changing the timing chain on a 1997 Nissan Altima for DIY auto repair.

Because of the complexity of this job, read the entire process before beginning work on your Nissan Altima.

Set of wrenches
Floor jack
Jack stands
2 drain pans
Set of sockets
Tape and marker
Screwdriver
Spark plug socket
Long screwdriver
Block of wood
Plastic scraper
Shop rags
RTV silicone
Torque wrench (inch-pounds)
Torque wrench (foot-pounds)

STEP 1: Disconnect the negative battery cable. Do not let it touch metal when you set it aside.

STEP 2: Slide one of the drain pans under the radiator petcock. Open the petcock and loosen the radiator cap to allow the coolant to drain.

STEP 3: Jack the vehicle up, then support it with jack stands. Slide the other drain pan under the oil pan. Loosen the drain bolt and allow the oil to drain.

STEP 4: Remove the engine undercover. Lower the vehicle off the jack stands. Label all vacuum lines and wiring harness connectors.

STEP 5: Loosen the lock nut on the adjusting bolt for the alternator. Loosen the adjusting bolt to relieve tension on the belt. Lift the belt off the alternator pulley. Unplug the wiring harness connector on the back of the alternator. Remove the power wire and set it aside. Screw the nut back onto the stud, so you don't loose it. Unbolt and remove the alternator bracket.

STEP 6: Loosen the clamp on the air duct, then pull the air duct off the air box. Remove the front exhaust tube. Remove the intake manifold collector supports, the intake manifold collector and the exhaust manifold.

STEP 7: Pull the spark plug wire off the No. 1 spark plug. This is the plug closest to the front of the engine, the side with the belts. Remove the spark plug.

STEP 8: Pull the coil wire off the distributor.

STEP 9: Stick the long screwdriver into the spark plug hole and rest it on the top of the piston. Turn the engine over using a socket on the crankshaft pulley while holding the screwdriver. When the piston comes up to the top of the bore, stop turning. When it gets to the top, the screwdriver stops moving, until it start to go down again, in which case you've gone too far.

STEP 10: Remove the distributor cap. If the rotor is not pointing to the No. 1 cylinder, turn the engine over again, until you feel the piston come to the top of the cylinder. The rotor should be pointing at the No. 1 cylinder. Unplug the wiring harness connectors on the distributor. Remove the distributor.

STEP 11: Place the block of wood on the floor jack. Slide the jack under the oil pan and jack it up until it just touches the oil pan. Remove the passenger side engine mount.

STEP 12: Remove the Nissan Altima's valve cover. Hold the camshaft sprockets with a wrench, then unbolt and remove them.

STEP 13: Remove the cam bearing caps in the proper order (see Supporting Links for pictures) and lay the caps out as you take them off. They must be reinstalled in the same place.

STEP 14: Remove the head bolts pursuant to the diagram (see Supporting Links for pictures). Remove the cam sprocket cover, upper timing chain tensioner and upper chain guides. Remove the upper timing chain and idler sprocket bolt.

STEP 15: Lift the head and gasket off the engine. Remove the oil pan.

STEP 16: Remove the crankshaft damper and the front cover. Remove the oil pump drive spacer, the lower timing chain tensioner, tensioner arm and lower timing chain guide. Remove the lower timing chain, lower sprocket, and idler sprocket.

STEP 17: Clean the gasket-mating surfaces on the head and cover. Install the crankshaft sprocket and oil pump drive spacer.

STEP 18: Make sure the timing marks on the crankshaft sprocket are facing the front of the engine.

STEP 19: Reinstall the idler sprocket and lower timing chain, ensuring the mating marks on the chain are lined up with the marks on the sprocket. The mating marks on the timing chain are usually silver.

STEP 20: Reinstall the chain tensioner, the chain guide and the lower timing chain tensioner.

STEP 21: Install a new front cover seal. Apply a 2 mm bead of RTV silicone on the timing cover and allow it to skin over. It is ready when it doesn't stick to your finger when you touch it.

STEP 22: Reinstall the front cover. Tighten the M6 bolts to 60 inch-pounds of torque. Tighten the M8 bolts to 13 foot-pounds of torque. Reinstall the crankshaft damper, the oil strainer and the oil pan.

STEP 23: Install the cylinder head. Coat the head bolt threads with engine oil. Insert the bolts, and temporarily tighten them snugly - do not torque them.

STEP 24: Install the upper timing chain, upper timing chain tensioner and the chain guide. Set the upper timing chain on the idler sprocket, ensuring that the mating marks line up. Apply a 2 mm bead of RTV silicone on the cam sprocket cover. Allow it to skin over. Install the cover.

STEP 25: Tighten the head bolts in the proper order (see Supporting Links for pictures).

STEP 26: Reinstall the camshafts and bearing caps. Fit the chain onto the camshaft sprockets, then install the sprockets and chain as an assembly.

STEP 27: Install the chain guide between both camshaft sprockets. Ensure that the alignment marks on the upper part of the timing chain are aligned.

STEP 28: Reinstall the distributor. Make sure the rotor is pointing at the No. 1 cylinder.

STEP 29: Reinstall the valve cover and tighten the bolts firmly.

STEP 30: Reinstall the rest of the parts in reverse order of removal.

STEP 31: Refill the radiator and oil (refer to the owner's manual for the viscosity and amount of engine oil).

STEP 32: Reconnect the negative battery cable. Start the Altima's engine and allow it to come to operating temperature. Top off the coolant as needed.

WARNINGS: Discard the oil and antifreeze in an appropriate manner. Both are detrimental to the environment. Animals will drink antifreeze, because it has a sweet taste. It will kill your pets.
