1998 Nissan 200SX Problems
Excessive timing chain noise, a rattling or ticking, on higher mileage cars may lead to timing chain failure, which can cause engine damage. There are upgraded chain tension guides with a steel backing to improve durability and a modified repair procedure no longer requires the removal of the cylinder head to replace the timing chain. Maintaining proper engine oil level and frequent oil changes are important to ensure the long-term durability of this engine.

It started off with a no start condition on my 1995 Nissan 200SX 1.6L I replaced the fuel filter and the fuel pump. Ran very well on test drive of speeds under 60miles and hr. Test it on the interstate and was not able to exceeded 55 miles an hr with car bogging down and lossing power. I have checked for fire at the plugs and cleand the points in the distribitor. Now Im officially lost???
